3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Draught at Man in the Moon, Stockholm, 20 June) Colour is dark brown, mahogany with hints of ruby, with frothy beige head. Nose is malty, slightly roasted, with caramel, butter-scotch and some chocolate. Taste is malty with the same caramel/toffee character, some chocolate and coffe detectable as well. Slightly sweet with a balanced hoppiness in the finish. Tasty and enjoyable, but hardly exciting.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle at Blĺ Rock Cafe. Very dark with some lasting beige head. Aromatic malts. Most of the flavour profile is about caramel. Notes of bitterness in the finish. Rather thin and watery, but well worth a test now and then.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is the best lager I’ve had.
Malty, roasted, saturated aroma, with hints of dark syrup.
Pretty enjoyable flavor, easy to drink, nothing strange. Vaguely bitter with the slightest sweetness.
Not very fullbodied. Quite thin.
A better choice than a Guinness and these are two most common non-ultracrappy beers served in Swedish bars. A reason not to go there actually.

UPDATED: JUN 11, 2006 Staropramen Dark Beer. 330 ml green long-neck bottle. Pours a russet colour. Clear. Small light beige head that fades away quickly. Aromas of dark rye bread. Also vinous, alcoholic, and sugar-like aromas. Watery mouthfeel. Tastes roasty and dry. Somewhat disappointing, although not a bad beer. Price: 5.79 EUR per litre.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2008 Wonderful mahogany colour - beautiful against the light. Aroma is roasted, but not particularly powerful. Taste is sweet at first, with a dryness in the aftertaste, followed by a good deal of caramel and roasted feeling. Body is low to medium. 2.9
Tap @ Republikken. A bit better composed, some chocolate creeps through, lending the beer a softer touch. Otherwise the above description seems far. 3.4
