3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours somwhat hazy into the glass, but the golden color and the nice foam head repairs any damage the concerned may have regarding an unfiltered product. The aroma is faint but appetizing, some citrus, some malt, some pine, some yeast. Had I blind tested it I would have thought it was a belgian beer, and for me that’s a good thing, just to be clear. The taste is average, or just above. Too much hops, too little malt. With this constitution of hops, the beer would have done well with caramel malts. It falls flat now due to the one-dimensional experience. The palate is prickly. A good lager, but not more.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Off white dense head, somewhat unclear golden body with strawy tones. Few lacings, clouds here n there.
Aroma; grassy mild fruity hops, sweet malts, yellow apple, notes of barley.
Taste; barley malts dominates, bitter but fruity tones from hops play along, then some bread, mostly rye bread.
Normal on palate. Finishes bittersweet, not bad at all.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle (BB May 2014).
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting.
Body is hazy medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (herbs, grass), with notes of sour veggies.
Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly husky.
Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Has promise in terms of bright hops, but the sour/rancid vegetable notes are really off-putting...what could have been a 7 aroma is barely a 5. Also kinda husky/vegetal in the mouth, although balanced well. Barely average but cleaned up could be mid 3s easily.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
The aroma is of wheat.
Not bad. But wouldn’t think of this when ordering a lager. More in the frame of a heifeweizer. It says on the bottle that the new filtering proccess produces a "clean" and crystal clear beer. But from my perspective this is a hazy beer with a lot of particles.
