Bottle. Creamy off-white good fully lasting head. Amber colour. Moderate malty and light hoppy aroma. Light sweet and bitter flavor. Almost like a dunkel. Average moderate bitter finish. Oily palate. Nice.

I am probably not the only to at some time during a session of drinking has wondered about mixing a dark and light beer together. And having a decent dark and blond lager gone on to do so. And as memory serves me this is about what I ended up with. Keep in mind that Zlato makes decent beer. But you get a brew that is watery and over carbonated. The flavors offset each other rather than enhance each other. This is a decent brew with a twist. Nothing special.Nothing offensive. Worth a try if you seek something different.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle from Systembolaget, Kiruna in Swedish Lapland. Almost perfect in appearance with its shining amber body under a beige, foamy tophead with good retention, leaving spotty lacing on the glass. Smell of fresh bready malts. Multifold of malts in flavour; a bit of nuts, bread and caramel. Mild candy sweetness offset by a discreet touch of hop resin towards the end. Medium bodied. Smooth on the swallow. Sometimes I find great pleasure in drinking a rich malty beer like this (Tromsř, 18.01.2010).

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2010 Apperance: 4/5
Hazy amber liquid with a big dirty white foam that left a nice lacing with lots of foam.
Malt, caramel and something sweet.
Malt, caramel, lots of sweetness and sugar.
Very smooth and pleasant mouthfeel. Creamy thick body that went down easily
Actually a surprisingly nice beer. It’s not very complex but a malty and sweet beer, with a pleasant mouthfeel. I think this beer would work very well with some heavy salty food, like a Weiner schnitzel or some meaty sausages. It didn’t work very good with spicey food. It’s biggest problem is the very high sweetness, at first it didn’t bother me but after a while it got too heavy.

Pours red brown with a decent tan head. Very sweet toasted malty aroma with honey, syrup and butterscotch. Sweet rich malty flavor of dark syrupy loaf bread, caramel and honey. Super smooth mouthfeel, round, sweet and soft.

Sötman är desperat efter uppmärksamhet, springer runt och viftar med armarna. Inte alls särskilt uppskattat. Dĺligt balanserad som gör att smaklökarna kvider i tystnad.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. This Half ’n’ Half named beer has clear cola brown colour. Aroma is caramelly malty and bready. Flavor is full of sweet malts and that’s about it. Medium Body. Too sweet beer for me, almost like drinking cola. Reminds of Dark Velko.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dull looking clear brown with a minimal greyish head. Aroma is of some dried fruits and light caramell, minerals and promises sweetness. Mouthfeel is a bit sharp, too carbonated but at the same time dull. Flavour is light caramell, minerals, light bitterness and a fairly big almost sugary sweetness. Ends a bit dry with minerals.

Bottle from Systembolaget.
Lovely amber. Maltyu sweet, candy sugar, burned sugar bitterness. Some flowery hops, piney bitterness in the background. Unbalanced, too sweet.
