Roslager is a pale lager beer. A beer with good maltiness and medium wort strength. Together with a big spicyness from the hops this creates a beer with a balanced flavour and convincing bitterness in the finish. A beer with flavour from the tradition in the archipelago.

Roslager är ett fylligt lageröl med tydlig smak och doft av humle. Efter huvudjäsningen har den genomgått en lång och kall lagring för att få fram den fina klassiska lagerkaraktären. Här märks brödiga toner såväl som stråk av nötter och rostad malt.
Eftersom både fyllighet och beska ligger över genomsnittet är Roslager ett välbalanserat öl där eftersmaken varar länge.

Klassifikation: Lageröl

Användning: Roslager är en utmärkt törstsläckare som passar de flesta smakriktningar. Den extra kryddigheten gör att den kompletterar robust och vällagad mat på ett strålande sätt. En klassisk silltallrik med traditionella tillbehör, svensk husmanskost, charketurier och grillat kött och fisk är några exempel på rätter som passar perfekt till detta öl.

Innehåll: Tre sorters malt: Münchener-, pilsner- och ljus karamellmalt.
Fyra sorters humle: Northen brewer, Saaz, Tettnanger och Celeia

Alkoholhalt: 5,0%

Sampled from bottle at Stockholm Beer & Whisky Festival 2004 (#34).
Clear golden beer with a tall foamy white head. Dusty, herby and hoppy aroma. Sweet grainy flavor wih malt notes and some bitterness towards the finish. Spicy and cheesy tones also.

Not bad at all but somewhat disappointing for a "microbrew". Golden colour, white quickly disapperaring head. Crisp, fairly high carbanation.

bark (255) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2004
The colour is yellow with a small touch of amber; the liquid is a little cloudy. The foam is white and compact and fast disappearing. The smell is discrete, the only thing I could notice were a little scent of sweet malt. The first taste that hit my mouth was sweetness, then, there were notes of somewhat burned malt and a dry touch of metal. The aftertaste was a little harsh with tastes of lactose and a mild bitterness from the hops. In other words, this is a well-crafted version of the classic Swedish lager beer. It’s something like a Volvo 240 car from the 80’s: You know exactly what you can expect. It is predictable, well built and reliable. But you won’t get any surprises or any new experiences. Plain? Well, maybe for me who is used to (and fed up with) with this kind of beer. But if you want to try out a bottle of Swedish lager, it’s an OK selection, but I prefer the dryer and more bitter Uppsala lager from the same brewery. Oh yes, the name. It is a play on words, “Roslagen” is the archipelago north of Stockholm and east of Uppsala, the town where this beer is made. And Roslager is a lager beer, of course. Very witty.

madsberg (10459) - Søborg, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2004
Bottled: Golden coloured. Clear. Off white fluffy head. Quickly diminishing. Malt and fruit in the nose. Is well sweetened. Flavour is malty with some light cocoa notes. Is light hopped and fruity. Is dry and light bitter in the end. Is a somewhat bland and light watery beer, where the aromas and flaovours are way to vague for my likings.

Bottled (BB 01/2005)
Yellow, vanishing head, lively carbonation. Aroma has hay, rubber and malt. Dry grassy and tasty, medium-bodied. A bit like some Czech pilseners. Dry and slightly bitter and sweet aftertaste. Well-balanced.

Golden lager, with a complex, hoppy-herbal nose, and a very fresh hop character and clean maltiness.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 1, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2009 (Bottled, 4.4% ABV) Clear, deep golden with a small head. Mild but aromatic, grassy-buttery-hoppy nose with citrusy and toffee notes. Toffee-malty, slightly toasty and spicy flavor with mellow, nutty-aromatic hops with low bitterness. Medium body with lowish carbonation. A quite pleasant, very malt-accented and aromatic lager. Not for hopheads. (Rated May 1, 2004, was 7-2-6-3-13) Typical lager color with a small, but lasting head with lace. Sweet and malty aroma with spicy hopping. Medium-bodied, malty and sweetish flavor with nice hops. Sweet, bitter and oily, medium-carbonated palate. A very nice and tasty lager - one of the best in its class!

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2003
The aroma is pretty hoppy. The color is golden and it has an OK but extremely fast disappearing head. The flavor is fresh, grassy, and hoppy. A good lager, but nothing special.

Golden color and a nice head. Aroma is hoppy. This is a quite bitter lager, but it is a nice one. Some hops in the flavor as well.
