2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
33cl bottle from Systembolaget Luleå.
Somewhat sticky off-white creamy head, and golden body.
Flowerish scents, with hops, caramel and strawberry hints.
Tasty, roasted hops, malts, grains, quite sweet mouthfeel, only slightly watery.
Ends with a twist of bitter, hops, dark bread, and some notes of faint smoked wood.
Overall decent premium lager.

This one is quite alright. Pretty great notes of pilsner all over, and it’s refreshing and tasty from begging to the end. Nothing special, but the things you would expect, deliveres...

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Refreshing but overmalty. Lacks any discernable flavor or anything nice. Nice bottle though.

Brukbar øl, ligner på Corona. Mangler litt på smak, men helt ok sommerøl. Premium vare... NOT

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
33cl bottle from Vinmonopolet. Pours clear golden with a white head. Sweet and lightly malty aroma with hints of grass, fruits and cooked vegetables. Fairly standard pale lager, but quite drinkable. A bit on the sweet side and not so much bitterness, but fairly well balanced. Decent enough, but far from memorable.

Flaske fra vinmonpolet skjærhalden. Lys gyllen farge,lite skum,uten karbonering. En ekstremt kjedelig øl som ikke engang har kullsyre. Malt og gress. Smaker mest vann

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pale gold colour; Thin head and white foam which faded in 10 seconds; Minimal lacing and some carbonation; Very potent smell of butter (diacetyl), light malt and grass; Very low sweetness with taste of light malt, strong grass and hint of butter; Medium to light body; Buttery palate; Hop bitterness minimal, not enough to offset the buttery taste. No finish to speak of; Slight dry after taste, very easy to mouth if you hold your breath to the cloying buttery smell !
Comments: Oh dear, why so many pale lagers (this one is a premium, or so it claims) are flawed when they can be avoided so easily? The last few I had were either skunked or metalled, or both, and this one is full of diacetyl to make it undrinkable. Take away the butter, it is just another below average macro with no remarkable features. Avoid it, unless you love butter bombs.
