UPDATED: AUG 19, 2009 Can. As Saxon 4.1. A quite pale yellow-golden beer with a minimal white head. Weak and boring nose, actually not very pleasant either, with corn and some pale malts. Hints of fruityness. Fizzy, watery mouthfeel with a little bitterness, and grains. Slightly papery mouthfeel towards the finish, which is as uninteresting as the rest of the beer. Rating: 3-2-3-2-6-1.6. (090819)

Can, thx to oh6gdx. A clear, golden beer with a nice off-white head leaving nice lacings. Cooked vegetables and corn-like sweetness in the aroma, not awful, but hardly inviting. Cooked vegetables and corn in the flavor too, quite sweet. There’s also a fruity touch, but just a hint of hoppy bitterness. Medium to thin, sweetish mouthfeel. The finish continues the DMS path, and has a little bitterness for decency. A beer the world don’t need. (081206)

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2008
It is warm golden and the head is OK. The aroma has notes of cabbage and malt. The flavour has sweetness, notes of malt, vegetables and caramel. The overall impression is watery.

Biggish white head. Deep yellow body. Grain and straw aroma. Dryish grainy corn taste with some sweetness and watery notes. Very faintly buttery. Watery, soft mouthfeel. Dryish papery aftertaste with grassy metallic notes. Drinkable, but not good. (0.5l can labelled Carlsberg Sweden SAXON 4.1%, Systembolaget, Charlottenberg.)
