Ungstrup (34359) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 13, 2003
An amber beer with no head. The aroma is slightly sour and a little sweet - as if it has been brewed on brewing cereal. The flavor is very malty sweet - of an OK maltblend - but not really a special flavor. An OK beer - but nothing compared to other Slottskällans beers.

joergen (25926) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2006
Bottle. Clear orange coloured with a small off white head. Aroma of malts, grass, caramel and slottskällans-yeast. Flavour of malts, caramel, grass and hops. Dry hoppy finish.

oh6gdx (25327) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 25, 2006
Bottled. Reddish copper colour, small beige head. Caramellish sweet malts in aroma along with grassy notes. Weak roasted malts in flavour, which is smooth, sweetish bitter (caramel meets bitterness). Wellbalanced, like slottskällans beers usually are .

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2005 (Bottle 50 cl) Comes as "Slottskällans München". Reddish brown almost without any head. Notes of caramel and roasted malt. Soft, only vaguely bitter and a bit too carbonated. But overall an OK brew. 060203

The aroma is strange, mixing some soap, flowers and hop. The mouthfeel is weak, with some caramel and light hop touch. Poor.

Beautiful amber color, thick head. Nice aroma, roasted malt, hop. Flavor dominated by the roasted malt, pretty dry, with a very light smokey note in the background. Pretty strong and quite long final.

rlgk (18199) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 7, 2006
AMber with a nice offwhite head. Malty, milky aroma with some nuts. Flavor is malty and nutty as well, some fruity notes, a bit too thin to be really good, but its still a nice beer.
Earlier Rating: 11/4/2003 Total Score: 3.5
Nice amber color, not much head. Aroma is dark chocolate, some cocoa and brown sugar. Has a sweet flravor that turns into some bitterness. Has a nice palate and is a very good beer.

yngwie (16504) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 14, 2006
Bottled. A nice copper-colored beer with an off-white to beige head. The nose has caramel and malt, with a light touch of fruits and grains. Flavor-profile is like a traditional Norwegian Christmas beer, with sweet caramel-malts and a balanced hop-profile, but without the notes of alcohol. It has a lightly dusty mouthfeel and a medium body, and a bitter, and slightly dry finish. (060428)

TBone (16159) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 30, 2005
Clear copper brown, small white head. Flowery hoppy with sweetish diacetyl-like toffee hints. Quite light with butterscotch, grassy - notes (diacetyl? I’m not sure, not used to find it in Slottskällans, maybe just too caramelly). Drinkable but too sweet.
