Tasted from a bottle poured into a glass, this beer is always a favorite. A great example of how a lager can be delicious without being boring

I hadn’t tried this in a long time and was super impressed. To me it’s much better than back in the day. Lots of good malt flavors, good hopping, almost an ale really. Reminds me of Sam Adams lager and a pale ale, like a combination of tastes of those. First class, it deserves all the success. pilsnerrogge (2948) - Finspång, SWEDEN - JAN 28, 2002

UPDATED: APR 3, 2010 Really enjoy this lager. Everything a lager should be. Fresh and crisp with a flowery and flavorful finish. Hallstein (483) - Skogn, NORWAY - MAR 30, 2012
Pours a nice copper-redish brown, with a nice head and good carbonation. Aroma of caramel and malt. A little hops mellow out the aroma nicely.
Velvety, delicous mouthfeel, and a nice malty flavour with hops that does not pop out, but are well balanced. Definately the best lager i’ve ever tasted. daniellunsford (105) - - SEP 4, 2012
A honey gold color with a small one finger head. Not an extraordinary aroma but sensational lager from such a big brewery. The most balanced mass produced lager on the market.
