Golden, few head. The best thing about this beer is the aroma. Sweet malty aroma of bread, pear and watermelon with foft citric hop notes. Bland flavour of cereals and bread with a dicrete sweet note. Short watery finish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. The colour is very pale yellow; the white foam is quite big just after the pouring, but it dissolves rather quickly into a very thin lid.
The smell is kind of discreet with a chemical touch and a somewhat bitter note and a hint of fresh fruits. I couldn’t find any of that vapid sweetness that one expects from a Swedish pale lager.
The carbonation is fresh (and on the right side of sharp) with lots of bubbles.
The taste is quite light with a somewhat fruity note. It is overall well balanced with a soft gentle bitterness and a clean, dry and mild body. I could trace a touch of crisp bread. The aftertaste is a bit malty with an underlying mild bitterness; very clean, balanced and quite short.
With this limited edition lager, Krönleins (formerly known as Appeltoftska) Brewery is celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of the legalisation of beer 3.5%-5.6%. And what more convenient way then with this skilfully made, well-balanced and rather uninteresting lager, typical for the brewery?

Golden, white head.Floral, sweet aroma with some hops. Sweet bready flavor that turns into a metallic flavor. Not much to celebrate...
