can. Clear, piss yellow liquid with small white head. Looks about as bad as an eurolager can. Aroma of plastic, hair, metal, grain, cooked vegetables and corn. Just horrible! Taste is dry and light bitter with some sweet corn and plastic. Not as bad as the aroma. Light bodied, watery with too high carbonation. Very bad stuff.

Pours a golden color with a white head. Awful aroma of burtn plastic, rubber, and green apple. A lot of grainy sweetness, corn, and metal, too. The flavor is not all that much better. A little less burnt plastic but still very rubbery. A bit of malt flavor, corn sweetness, and green apple. Really fairly unpleasant.

Drucken som Stockholm Fine Festival Beer. Hur många ord finns det för att beskiva en lageröl i mängden? Nä, tänkte väl det.

Weirdly sour. Tastes like green beans. Has a nice full, smooth mouthfeel though. Enjoyed n its stockholm festival incarnation from an ikea in japan.

"Stockholm Fine Festival Beer 5,3%"
330ml can obtained from an IKEA store near Birmingham (England) by my wife.
This was one of five lager/pilsners I tasted during a sunny afternoon in my back garden, late May 2009. It held up well against two Greek, a Dutch and a UK brewed beer.
Mid range golden body, bright and sparkling, the white head tried to hang around but soon became a thin collar round the glass.
Slight grassy aroma, nothing else much, gets my standard score of 3 for a non-smelling lager/pils.
Refreshing and crisp, no great flavours but not bad at all. A pleasant mix of hop, malt and yeastiness combind to give a well balanced lager.
No lagers have a rich full bodied feel to them, well none I’ve had anyway, this one was fine when you remember it is only a 5.3% lager.
I enjoyed this drink, it was hot and I’d had some very indifferent beers before it, but overall, a ’fine festival beer’.

Bottle. Slightly gassy with a medium body. The label says its a world class lager-it isn’t. Its a resaonable but east to forget Euro-Fizz.

33cl can from tdm82 I think. Hazy gold big rocky off white head disappears quite quickly. Syrupy palt malty lager. Some syrupyness isn’t very attractive. Vague bitterness on finish. Nothing very offensive. Just a bit under brewed out if anything. Not sure entirely fully attenuated. It’s fine, mind you I’m not sure I’d want to drink it again.

Pale, white head.
Sweet malt, higher bitterness than some others in the style, but not very nice.
