2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can. Mostly diminishing greyish, big-bubbled head. Pure golden, light carbonatied body. Sweet, alcoholic and buttery malt-aroma with a scent of carboardy hops. Taste is sugary maltsweetness, sharpish bittering hops and some alcohol notes. Chewy mouthfeel. Healthy body. Malty-bitter end. Drinkable, and not totally out of balance like some of the strong lagers.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Nice warm golden with a small, lasting, white head. The aroma is sweetish malty with notes of flower and alcohol. The flavour is sweetish with notes of malt, alcohol, flower, light citrus and a light bitterness. Quite ordinary, but less sweet than I thought it would be - and that’s nice.

Blond color; thin layer of foam. In the aroma there is some malt and hop, surprisingly. The taste is more common, quite bitter, rather smooth, but nothing special.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden color, decent creamy white head. Light malty and apple fruity aroma. Medium-bodied but not very strong palate. Fruity, malty, unoffensive, hides alcohol very well. Alcohol only picks in the aftertaste, where also some hoppy harshness appears. Not bad as such, but easy to forget.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Pale, golden piilsener colour with a creamy head. Lovely aromatic, slightly perfumy aroma. Comes with some malty sweetness but is surprisingly fresh and floral - almost fruity - for a lager this strong. 271000
