UPDATED: NOV 21, 2012 500ml bottle (Stockholm) - shared by SaintMatty - thanks!
4 Very bland aroma, just the caramel and some paper
3 Clear deep re, brief head.
5 Very stodgy malts, seems almost underfermented.
2 Sugar-watery, and fairly fizzy. Finish more stodgy, and a bit buttery. Some very harsh industrial hop bitterness.
9 Fullish, but none of it particularly brilliant. Sweet caramelly nonsense.

Not sure where the previous hate came from, this is now a very scrummy caramelly dark lager. It’s brainstem-focused, no complexity, just a massive sweet caramelly fire blanket to extinguish any interest in hops. Finish is an enire load of bread - crammed into every corner of your gob. But it ain’t bad, it’s clean, it’s malty, it’s a bit predictable and maybe dull, but it ain’t bad.

Inte alls oäven julöl. Lite sötare än ern del andra, också med inslag av citrus. Ingen vinnare, men inte heller en förlorare.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Pours clear and deep brown with a red glow, a nice, creamy but short lasting, beige head. Soft carbonation. Nose of mild malt, caramel and spicy notes. Flavour of caramel, bread and weak notes of spice. Light to medium bodied. The texture is a bit watery. Tiny bitterness in the finish. OK, but it miss some volume.
