2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Canned. A big airy, lightly tanned head upon a clear brownish red colored body. Clean, nutty caramel aroma with sugary notes. Sweet , burned sugary malt flavor. Not sticky, quite crisp actually. But there is almost no bitterness to deal with it, only a touch of acidulous fruits. Well-bodied. Slick mouthfeel. Sweet finish.

Dark ruby brown. Caramelly nose, with tones of anise. Flavour is, just like the 3,5 version, quite nice and tasty with notes of salmiak(ammonium chloride). Long flavour.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.5l can courtesy of ogivlado (thanks!)
Poured a nice brown cola-like body with a white head that went away at a medium pace. MIld caramelly nose, bit malty. The taste is unfortunately also mild and watery. Caramel, malt (slightly roasty), light breadiness... hop shows up stronger than expected but only near the end and in the aftertaste (still far from mind blowing). All in all, what could’ve been a nice beer is ruined by a body that’s way too light for its own good. Pleasant, drinkable but dull.

Amber colour. Ok beer. Much better than the awful lagers I had to endure when I lived in Sweden 14 years ago.
