Can in Grand Canarie. Golden body with corny and metal nose. Taste is very bland, malty and slightly sweet. Some bitter in the finish. Subpar.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2011 Had to reevaluate this in light of coming back to Mariestads Export, on of the "quality" lagers in Sweden. Light golden yellow with decent white head. Slightly weak aroma with maltiness and a metallic tone to it (can?). Taste is not horrible, a bit too light but with a slight, pleasant bitterness to finish. For the price, it’s actually quite alright.

Can. Pale yellow colour. Weak aroma. Light neutral taste. Cheap and works when you are thirsty. Not one of the better beers out there.

Clear golden with a white film. Barnyard, band aid and light malts in the nose aromas which are also kept in the mouth along with bitter and sweet flavors. Light bodied and watery. Rather bland.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled (no BB markings)
Clear golden color, small white head. Nose is all typical Kopparbergs: sweet apple, rubber, malts and low citrusy hoppyness. Fizzy carbonation. Sweetish malty, some apple too. More robust than its lower alcohol versions. Maltyness in the aftertaste. More or less ordinary bulk lager.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(Bottle, Norra Brunn, Stockholm, 31 Oct 2009) Golden yellow colour with frothy, white head. Malty nose with notes of grass, hay and grain. Rather shy. Malty taste with grass and grain, modest traces of grassy hops in the finish. Light body, fairly dry. The lack of off-flavours and the relative dryness makes it quite drinkable, but it’s hardly impressive.
