Bottle. This is the best of the three svagdrickas i’ve tried this year. It’s obvoiusly very sweet, but the saccharine is balanced by some darker graniy notes and à small touch of hops. Heavy toffee notes!

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Hazy dark amber colored with a foamy light tan head. Sweet strawberry stew aroma, mild but nice and fresh. Extremely sweet flavor, like sugar water with tones of berries. Short finish. A strange beer.
