2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. The colour is pale yellow; the thin white foam is made of big bubbles.
The weak smell is kind of sweet with a hint of dust.
The carbonation is medium with refreshing small bubbles.
The taste is somewhat sweet and soft; the body is rather mild with some anonymous malt. It develops into a slightly bitter aftertaste. The aftertaste is a bit dry-bitter with some notes of white bread and a short, simple bitterness.
Yet another unexciting pale lager…
A note about the name: “Grängesbergs Bryggerier” was renamed to “Spendrups Bryggerier” in 1983, when the Spendrups family bought the brewery. This is a beer in the Swedish retro-trend, started by Spendrups a few years back with the unexpected success of “Mariestads”.

From Sweden’s macro brewery. Very weird tasting Pils. Malt and a bit of hops. Drinkable, yes. Because beer is expensive there.
