Slottskällans Pilsner has an elegant, dry maltiness and a light body, accompanied by aromatic hops. The aroma is fresh and slightly flowery. The traditional German pilsener character comes from pilsner malts, Hersbrucker and Saaz hops, and a long, cold lagering.

Old note: Pleasant pilsner with dry, grassy hops bitterness that works well with the malt flavor.

330 ml bottle. Golden color, frothy white head. Slight woody aroma. Very smooth flavor with fresh malts and some grass. Well-balanced easy bitterness. Very drinkable, has to be one of the best pilseners available in the Finnish market.

bierkoning (11526) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAY 13, 2008
Bottle from TBone, sold as Slottskällans Classic Pils. Pale golden color, cloudy. Vennel and mint in the aroma. A soft grassy bitterness and mint in the flavor. Hints of dust and apple. Not a classic pilsener, but not unpleasant.

Maria (10190) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2008
Golden with an OK head. The aroma is malty with a hint of hops. The flavour is malty with a nice bitterness. I would have liked it to have some notes of fruit or flower, and I find it a bit boring and ordinary. It’s not what I expected from this brewery, that makes a lot of nice beers. 1882

larsga (6893) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 14, 2007
Huge white coarse head doesn’t last. Pale yellow body. Light sugary, caramelly aroma dominated by hoppy, earthy peas. Notes of paper. Harmonic and balanced. Dry, yet firmly sweetish, caramelly taste with earthy, strawy, pea-like hop notes. Dry, lingering straw and grain aftertaste with hoppy notes. Wow! This must be one of the best pilseners I’ve tasted. It’s light, tasty, and even ... dare I say it ... structured. Excellent. (0.5l bottle from Systembolaget, Stockholm.)

Bottle. [thank you, Myrup, for bringing this from Sweden]
Pours a very pale yellow with a big fluffy white head. Aroma is malty, with a more dough-like feel rather than hay-like. There is a touch of fruity hops as well. Medium carbonation. Flavour is limited, with a definite dryness to it. Not very sweet and has a slight metallic edge. Okay.

ekstedt (6157) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 13, 2007
UPDATED: APR 17, 2007 Bottle. Clear golden, medium fluffy head. Quite weak malt aroma, some hints of potatoe and boiled vegetables, but also some nice floral hops. Quite thin and watery. Dry and bitter, but with an unpleasant metallic touch.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 9, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2008 500 ml bottle. Thick, lasting white head over a clear pale yellow/golden body. Both dry grain/cereal and fresh floral hops in the aroma. Taste is flavorfull and nicely balanced, soft malty and gently bitter. Crisp mouthfeel. Healthy body. Pleasant bitter/sweet finish.
