1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Body’s dark amber brown, loose and diminishing pearl head. Poor lacing.
Aroma; mild caramel malts and a loaf of white bread.
Taste; bready malts, wort, bready hops.
Feels as macro lager. Aftertaste has bread, and some sweet roasted chestnuts and dark sweet syrup. Overall, maybe it was brewed in a hurry this year.

50cl can from Systembolaget, Strömstad. Pours clear copper coloured with an off-white head. Mild malty and caramelly aroma with metallic notes, hints of rubber, spices and herbs. Sweet and unpleasant with some bitterness in the finish. Not a beer I would want to drink again.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Good aroma of fruit. Good taste but unfortunately it is also metallic, too. Good aftertaste that may not be left for too long. Very special and good beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Sample at a Systembolaget tasting. Fruity with an artificial feeling and also a bit skunky, almost sweaty or like onions. Sweet and mild taste. Feels a bit like a mix between cider and beer. Not good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: Smelling of hay, bitter oranges and pears.
Appearance: The brew is clear amber, has a big tan head that settles quickly and a bit unevenly, good lacing and some curtains.
Taste: Slightly sweet brown bread start, fruity aromas, canned peaches, some clean bitter notes.
Palate: Medium carbonation, small bubbles, smooth and refreshing, a slightly dry finish.
Overall: An unexpected easy-going and fruity Vienna lager, with just enough hops to make it sessionable.
