3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.5 L bottle, picked up @Vinmonopolet, Vika. Two fingers of dense yellow-blond foamy head, upon a near clear orangey-golden body. Just the right aroma. Clean and refined, fresh and bready malt aroma. Some nice floral hops shines trough after a while. Clean malt flavor as well. Light sweet, light sourish. Subtle bitterness, mild earthy flavoring hops. A light bitter, gentle sourish bread-like finish. This is a very well crafted and moreish lager. A spot on Vienna.

(Bottle, 0.5 l, at Pikkulintu) The beer poured deep golden and clear. Its head was medium sized, white and long lasting. Aroma was grassy and grainy. Palate was bit lighter than medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, grain, grass, mildly sweetness, fruitiness, and bitterness. Aftertaste was fruity and bitter. A pleasant lager.

Boks 0,33l fra Systembolaget Kiruna. Drukket hjemme 25 Mai 13. Strågul med et høyt skinnende hvitt skum som varer lenge. Nydelig kniplingslacing. God humlearoma. Smaken er fersken & andre søte frukter. Blir litt tørr & syrlig etter hvert. Godt øl!

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Pours a deep golden body with a small white head. Aroma is pale malts, melon and hints of red berries and biscuits. Taste is pale malts, grassy hops, dusty cardboard notes and hints of soap. Medium body and carbonation. Half-decent but no more, and quite overrated IMO.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle 33 cl, SB. Pours clear amber with a good diminishng off white head leaving lace. Aroma is very malty and grainy, floral fruity, hoppy fruity and has some Soapy grassy tones. Flavor is soapy fruity grainy and malty in the start, more fruityness and pungent bitterness together with piny tones getting more dry towards the end still keeping the good maltyness. Finishes with a longlived bitter bite. Clean and well brewed, love the steady malty body and bitterness.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2013 Bottle from Systembolaget in Märsta.
It poured a light hazy orange liquid, with a medium sized dirty white fluffy head that left a very thick layer of foam on the side of the glass. Very appealing look.
Hops, fruits and flowers, also fairly sweet.
Hops, flowers and malt.
Semi-smooth mouthfeel, medium body and medium amount of carbonation.
A very nice lager, first of all it looks great, very appealing almost like a nice IPA. I also liked that it had a strong bitterness that lasted a while. The hops was noticeable and both fruity and flowery.
I think this beer was enjoyable on it’s own but should work very well with food.
I liked this one, one of the better lagers at Systembolaget. Unfortunately you have to order it or get your ass to Märsta. But it’s of the same quality as Dugges Lager nr 1, St Eriks Pilsner or Jämtlands Hell to name a few.
Re-rated on the 1st of March.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.5l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. This is a light blurry peach-orange beer, some unfiltered particles and a small sidesticking off-white head. Light zest-yeasty on the head with a good sweetness, some melon and hay. Not extreme. It’s average carbonated and it has a soft oily texture. Flavors are dry, bitter. Light soapy with some clear fruits, and it ends really mouthdrying. A bit to mouthdrying, somewhat disturbing. 16.06.2012
