Bottle 2010-07-26, Göteborg
AR: dark syrup baked bread - the aroma is a bit wage
AP: dark bread syrup/reddish body/high light beige creamy head
F: syrup sweet, wee dark bread, schmaltzy texture - lubricates my lips with sugar, but on the other hand a good quencher! Medium low bitterness

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bought at Systembolaget as "Zlatopramen Anno 1642 Half n’ Half".
Pours clear orange with a small off-white head. Aroma contains caramel, wood, band aid, dry fruits and cardamum. Sugar sweet, roasted and bitter flavors with alcohol notes. Medium body. Medium carbonation. May work with or in a dish that requires a sweet drink, but does not stand particularly well on it’s own.

Hazy amber with a large tan head. Sweet aroma of malt, bread and caramel. The taste was also sweet with bread, caramel and some butter. Very drinkable but not that exciting.

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.
