Bottle. Hazy, red-yellow-orange with small white head. Yest and some sweet. Light body, a little dry in after taste. I had a small cold, maybe I should try this again later.

Hazy orange colour. Aroma is very yeasty, a bit sweet with wheat and fruits. Sweet aromas disappear when beer gets warmer. Quite light body.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle. Amber, cloudy with all the sediment floating around, miniscule head. Butterscotch and bready aroma, that comes out almost sickly sweet. Sickly sweet bread flavours. Disgusting-one for the zink.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2009 Bottle (50 cl) from Systembolaget. Hazy orange/amber, small but creamy off-white head. Bready, slightly roasted malt aroma, with notes of butterscotch and some citrus hops. Medium bodied. Very well balanced with some sweetness, but also some (wheat?)acidity and a nice bitter finish. Very refreshing.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Unclear light golden. Rapidly disappearing white head. Good lacework. Weak, lightly sweetish aromas of cream-caramel, cereal and grain/malt. Taste is moderately sweet, slight fruity with an earthy hop presence. Medium body. Soft and quite thin mouthfeel. Short bitter/sourish finish. Not bad, not impressive either.

500ml bottle from Systembolaget consumed at my hotel room in Stockholm. Unfiltered. Hazy orange body. Only a tiny little head. Fruity yeastiness in both aroma and flavour. Tartness impression. Grainy and crispated. Not my kind of beer (03.12.2006).

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml bottle from Systembolaget. Uninspiring and quite insipid golden ale. Looks OK, with cloudy golden body and thin head, but smells of ’artificial’ banana - like those banana sweets you used to buy as a kid.
A little sour and quite thin, with watery citrus and hints of iron in the finish. Cred to Spendrups for brewing it, but it misses the mark by miles for me.
