Furseth (1955) - Kungälv, SWEDEN - MAY 15, 2006
Bottle,20/2-06. Golden colour, with a foam who died fast in the glass. Aroma of sweet malt and and bitternes in the end. Short bitter finish, and thin body.

gnoff (7843) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - APR 16, 2006
Bottle from Swedish "Systembolaget". After the "best before" date though.
Light golden color, white non-lasting head. Malty scent, smells of bread. Good bitterness initally, malty a bit sweet flavor.

larsga (6213) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 10, 2006
Huge head of fine white lace slowly subsides. Deep yellow body with lots of ongoing carbonation. Light, faintly malty aroma with strong pea-like, resiny hop notes. Chalky, sweetish taste of soft malts with a pea-like, resiny, bitter aftertaste. It’s a good beer, but I’m not too keen on the lack of body combined with the hop character, hence the relatively low rating. (0.5l bottle.)

ChristianSA (368) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 6, 2006
Bottle. The first thing you notice is the very nice hop aroma - presumably Saaz. The color is bright golden featuring a white head, with OK retention. The flavor is a bit disappointing after the fine aroma. It is one-sided malty, with sweet pilsner malt dominating. It ends with a pleasant bitter finish saving the dominant malt. The mouth feel is very good with fine Co2 and a slick palate.

KnutAlbert (6100) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2006
Rather sticky and sweet with lots of toffee and brown sugar. This should have been balanced with more hops IMHO.

fiulijn (14552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 20, 2006
Blond color. It looks like a simple beer, but it has a nice hoppy aroma, of hop flowers, crispy. Malty enough, with a strong bitterness, partially aromatic. A good surprise.

2.3
   AROMA 3/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 8/20
Bov (9492) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 20, 2006
light hazy golden colour under a firm white head; beautiful lacing; very metallic aroma masking modest grassy and honeyish notes; very very creamy mouthfeel, strong sweetness and a touch of late bitterness; dry peppery finish with more metallic notes - dubious and far below Slottskällans standards

Ungstrup (29309) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 12, 2006
A yellow beer with a dense white head. The aroma is sweet perfumated, with some notes that reminds me of soap. The flavor has strong notes of grass as well as lighter metal and perfumated notes, as if it is spiced with something I can’t figure out. The end is dry and slightly bitter. Slottskällans can do much better than this.

joergen (20790) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2006
Bottle. Clear yellow coloured with a white head. Aroma of malts, herbs and grass. Flavour of malts and grass. Dry hoppy finish.
