A Mes rate. 2008 bottle thanks to Alex. Nice dark amber colour with a thin beige head. Pleasant spicy malt aroma with some faint caramel and wholemeal bread. The flavour is almost the same but hints of cardboard and cereal. Decent enough but not fantastic. Ljunkan (530) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - DEC 27, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2009 Pours a brown color with a nice beige head. It slowly dies, leaving quite lot of lacing on the glass.
Aroma is quite interesting of caramel and spices. It got some weird "sweet" smell, almost like it could be a soda of some sort. Oh, now I know: pineapple! There is also some dried fruits.
Taste is first of all quite sweet and malty with some hops in the background. It got a moderate bitterness with notes of a citrus/grapefruity hop note and pineapple. A bit spicey and quite fresh.
Mouthfeel is quite filling for a lager, pretty smooth. Liquid is maybe a bit thin though.
Drinkable? Yes! Probably the best beer from I have had from this brewery; Swedens biggest macrobrewery. It is quite fun they try to make something different than their massproduced, cheaply made lager beer. Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - DEC 23, 2008

The aroma is very malty although not very typical dunkel malty. hints of caramel, hops and even cooked vegetables, in a good way!
