rlgk (10119) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - NOV 22, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2004 Bronze color, quite ok off-white head. Not much aroma at all. Flavor is grassy and herbal, finish is spicy and bitter.

Bov (9335) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 19, 2003
dark ruby-brown colour, fine head, beautiful lace, grassy aroma, slightly sweet, medium-bodied, salty (!?!) with a dry bitter malty finish - balanced and original

FatPhil (9182) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 3, 2010
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.
Rerate 500ml botle (Tallink) (5:4:5:3:10=2.7)
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.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2011
500ml @ Christmas tasting on 28 December 2010. Coppery amber colour. Seems to follow the standard Christmas beer pattern for the larger Scandinavian brewers. First take a fairly standard pale lager. Bump up the alcohol level a teensy bit. Add some caramel or colouring to darken the colour a little, taking great care to ensure the presence of loads of toffee and caramel in the flavour. Avoid hops at all costs. Make sure it is as sweet as hell. Leave in plenty of fat, under-brewed malt but skilfully contrive to make the mouthfeel thin and watery at the same time. If possible introduce some tinny or cardboardy elements. Preferably both. This one ticks all those boxes. Not exactly horrible but very dull stuff.

Meilby (7280) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 19, 2013
Bottle 500ml @ Geokkjer
Pours deep reddish brown with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, toffee, bread , floral hops and light oxidization. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

Hansen (6495) - Assentoft, DENMARK - JAN 19, 2010
A nice malty beer. Flavor starts moderate sweet and has a good bitterness at the finish. But on the other hand, not much going on.

larsga (6146) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 30, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2009 Big brown head. Deep dark red body with carbonation. Fruity, malty wild berry aroma with perfumy, meaty notes. Sweet fruity malty taste with papery meaty notes. Very unusual taste. Soft, mild mouthfeel. Light body. Dryish malty wild berry aftertaste, stil with the meatiness, as well as some hoppy notes. Quite sweet; lacks bitterness. Strange, and not really that good. (0.5l can, Systembolaget, Charlottenberg.)

Svesse (6045) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 4, 2012
(Bottle, Stockholm Beer Festival, 4 Oct 2012) Reddish brown colour with frothy, beige head. Roasted, malty nose with crisp-bread, dried fruit and spicy hops. Malty, roasted taste with notes of raisins, dark bread, a touch of brown sugar and mild, spicy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. Quite decent Christmas beer.
