2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
From a 500mL Can. Pours a transparent, honey gold color with a quickly dissipating head of fizzy white. Clean malt nose with a bready malt base and some hints of fruity melanoidin character. Medium light bodied, moderately carbonated mouthfeel with a prickly texture. Sweet malt flavors of bread dough and green raisin melanoidins up front on the palate, sweetened with a hint of honey. Munich-y. Too sweet. No hop character. The can is awesome, though. Definitely the best part.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Not bad. Typical Pilsner aroma and nice taste of malts, some hops and the rigth amount of mustiness. Pours with a nice full head with good lacing and a golden color. One of the better lagers out there.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
50cl Can brought home from Austria, thanks Rein&Renée! Clear deep golden colour, fluffy white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, honeyed cereals, light hoppy. Flavour is sweet, malty, corny, light bitter. Light carbonation, thin to medium bodied. A bit too sweet, but OK nevertheless.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled 50cl. The aroma is malt pronounced, faintly sulphury with some hops sneaking in. Moderate bitterness. High carbonation. Notes of lemon. Boring. Pretty similar to a mediocre swiss lager but with a slightly better hop profile. Dryish finish. Poor.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Draught at Hyddan, Åre, Sweden, 16 March 2009) Golden colour with frothy, white head. Sparkly carbonation. Malty, clean nose with notes of bread, grass and hay. Malty, bready taste with freshly cut grass and a mild bitterness with hints of vanilla. Decent pale lager, possibly a touch too sweet, but clean and refreshing.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Moderate malt aromas of cereal and caramel, light herbs for the hops, moderate dough and a little for the yeast with a hint of cardboard. Head is small, wispy, white with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is like cloudy iced tea with tiny particles. Flavor starts light to moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes light to moderately bitter. Palate is light to medium, slightly oily, has a lively carbonation and finishes lightly dry. Pretty light for a Marzen, but still a pretty good drinking beer.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
FRom 500ml can. Pours golden yellow with thick white head. Aroma of hops and alcohol. The flavor is pretty mild. A little sweet, very floral. This beer is very easy drinking. My only complaint would be that it is a bit sweet.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a light, dingy yellow color with a good head that reduces to a sateen sheet. Strong grainy aromas persist. Full on the palate with superb carbonation. The texture is almost like cream. Mildly sweet grainy essence with a twist of citrus show forward. The finish is mildly bittered and balanced.
