Hjo Bryggeri Reviews

Hjo Svagdricka 3.3
2,5 liter plastic container bought at Närke Kulturbryggeri. Malty smell with caramel and dark bread. Similar taste, some artificial sweetener, specially in the finish. No sulfur, which is pretty common in this type of beer. No carbonation.

Jerrycan shared by Menno, thanks! Black pour, no head, no carbonation. Aroma of licorice, lemonade, cola and candy. Flavor is quite sweet, slightly roasty, licorice. Somehow this appealed to me. Really nice.

Tasting @ De Molen. The aroma has juniper, toffee sweetness. Dark brown/black coloured beer with almost no head. The taste is sweet, light bitter and has toffee/caramel, sugar, spicey tones. Light bodied.

2.5 liter plastig container thanks to Joel (non ratebeer). Sampled on October 28, 2014. Marked 1.8% ABV, Årgång 3 - 2014. 6.5 degrees P.
Hazy dark brown color, very small teal head. Sugary sweet, apple scent, some tobacco and red berries. Very sweet, lactic, fake sugar taste. Sweet (fake) aftertaste, some wort feeling. A bit thin mouthfeel, very low to non existent bitterness, but weird feeling.

Hand-bottled bottle courtesy of Gnoff. Pours murky brown with a small head that doesn’t leave much trace while dissipating. Smell is sweet and fruity with honey, plums, raisins, molasses, moist wood, cereal and soil. Taste is very sweet and strangely bitter with cereal, raisins, artificial sweetener and ear wax. Mouthfeel is, well, strange with an intense non-astringent bitterness stealing the focus every so slightly from an mind-boggling sweetness. Finish is very sweet and strangely bitter with raisins and artificial sweeteners. Disgusting I’m afraid and very much not for me…

Dark brown color, brown head. Sweet, smoked scent. Sweet, malty, mineral, sugary taste. Weak mouthfeel, low bitterness.
Nice, but didn’t want to drink too much of it, nice for sipping though.

Bottle@Home as Juldricka brought to me by a friend. The aroma is very much sulphur and sewer-like. Which I like in a good Bohemian lager but this one is too strong. Dark brown, light brown head, good lace. Sweet, very malty, light fruity, light sugary. Very interesting brew. Very much balanced. Great for breakfast!

From plastic container. Very dark brown, rich firm head. Buttery malt aroma. With it’s very soft mouthfeel, restrained sweetness and lihjt body it’s extremely drinkable. Lightly roasty with dry velvetty finish. Very good and very refreshing. Svagdricka at it’s best!
