Somewhat citrusy aroma, flavor is a bit sweet and somewhat buttery, body and mouth feel is ok. Not too bad for a template lager.

Bottle at Wojarski in Gothenburg, Sweden on January 6, 2006.
Pours a very light yellow and a white head, but the scent has more to it than the color that meets the eye. Nice hoppiness in the taste as well. Better than most international lagers.
Bottle at Metropol, Hultsfred, during metal festival Mörkaste Småland. On September 26 och 27, 2014.
Clear pale golden color, white head. Malty a bit hoppy, clean and fairly nice scent and taste. Medium mouthfeel, low to medium bitterness.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Small, white head of coarse lace subsides quickly into a thin white ring. Clear yellow body. Fruity, lemony aroma with hints of coriander and perhaps some caraway.Taste is surprisingly full and malty with hints of wheat. Aftertaste is bitter. Mouthfeel somewhat watery. Some off flavours. Quite unusual, OK, but not too exciting.

22 Jan 06 - Light hop sweet aroma. Clear yellow-amber colour, low head and lacing. Sweet simple hop and light malt flavour. Tangy light hop bitterness, with a hoppy lingering finish. Overall - Just another lager but still drinkable.

My wife picked me up some of this on her trip to Poland. It was surprisingly good. Crisp golden colored pour, not too hoppy. Pretty damn good.

Bottle. Yellow, small frothy white head - lots of bubbles streaming up in the glass. Skunky hop aroma - not bad, but standard Euro lager stuff. Taste was surprisingly fresh light malt - very thin and bland, but quenching. Mild sweetness that comes off a little syrupy - this beer could use the carbonation the streaming bubbles suggest. Better than I expected, but I wouldn’t buy again.
