2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2011 Can. It pours a bit pale, golden and clear, with the head being small and white. Malt, grain and grass in the aroma, boring. The flavor is better, quite hoppy actually, and also has pale malt, grain and hay. Medium to thin mouthfeel. A decent, but nothing more, Swedish lager. Rating: 3-3-5-3-8-2.2. 070209
Can. A foamy white head sits on top of a clear, white head. Fruity, grainy and grassy aroma with some hay. A decent bitterness in the flavor, style considered, with grass, grains and some pine cones. Medium body, decent carbonation. Bitterness in the end. Well, not the mose exciting beer I can think of, but at least it’s drinkable. 111001

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: APR 14, 2007 My friend, aware of my disinterest in bland lagers told me "this is a really good one, a million swedes can’t be wrong" (this is appearantly one of the big selling beers at Systembolaget). Of course they can. A meaningless beer, to put it nicely.

Sweet and nutty scent. Also dry and paper like. Light acidic dry with no apparent hops in the smell. Small head. Clear light straw yellow color. Dry malty and a bit acidic taste. Fairly high inital bitterness. Dry and bitter aftertaste, also a bit nutty. Clean taste iwwth no fruitiness at all. Relatively thin body but normal co2.

Clear pale straw color, small white head. Malty sweet vegetable aroma and taste. Medium mouthfeel with high co2 level. Low bitterness. Standard boring pale lager.

Can. 1 month past BB date. The aroma is actually not bad, a bit of flowery hops. Clear golden colour, small, semi-stable white head. Watery flavour. Low, but rough bitterness.
