Maria (10136) - 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.

larsga (6185) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 28, 2008
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.)

Gusgus (232) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - AUG 28, 2008
Can as Saxon 4.1. Pours very pale with thin, creamy head. Dry and dusty aroma, with a somewhat sour and spicy wheat note, reminiscent of something belgian. Some sweetish esters and some DMS. Very dry and astringent flavor with some sweet maltiness and metallic dryness in the finish, like if they where using artificial sweeteners. Weird. Both good and bad at the same time.

Finn (4166) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 15, 2008
UPDATED: APR 29, 2009 Can 0,5l. Pale golden colored. Aroma of paper. Flat unvaried flavor of malt. Uninteresting. Also had this one labeled Saxon - can 0,5l - bought at Systembolaget in Sweden 03.2009.

Can shared at a summer rating party in Tromsø. Clear, light amber. Snow-white head. Little more than smell of hard water. Some sweet hoppy notes in flavour and a hint of bitter sweetness in the finish. Light bodied (14.06.2008).
