Bottle at ChrisO’s Pre-GBBF Shindig 2011. Holy shit, a Premium Lager scoring over 3? Pours clear gold with a white, foamy head. Crisp lager nose, light sugar. Sweet flavor, light notes of bread. Light bodied with average carbonation. Mild doughy malts in the finish, nips of white sugar. Good beer. hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2011
At chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig ’11. Gold. Faint aroma, but I couldn’t put a name to it. Sweet, malty taste. Some dryness. Passable. cgarvieuk (25222) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 30, 2011

A Mes rate. At Chris O’s pre GBBF.tkrjukoff (4335) - SWEDEN - JUL 17, 2011
Gold with a good White head. Rather soapy but it’s well balanced otherwise. Esy to drink and a decent but delicate bitter hit in the finish.

Into the glass pours a light amber colored beer with a little fine foam. Sweet caramelly smell, slightly honey, delicately hopped. Starts very caramelly and malty-bitter, also pleasant aroma hops are noticeable. Aftertaste is very long, hoppy bitter and tart,. The further course is well balanced with caramelmalts and lots of bitter- and aromahops! Excellent beer! VsXsV (4522) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 28, 2011
50 cl bottle from Systembolaget. Clear, amber (as the name would suggest) liquid with medium frothy off-white head. Aroma is quite malty with notes of caramel, noble/floral hops, butter and fruit. Taste is quite dry with medium to high bitterness (for the style) and similar notes as the aroma. Well balanced and highly drinkable. Medium bodied with nice carbonation. Good, refreshing beer.

(Bottle, Hamrestugan, Duved, Sweden, 20 March 2011) Golden amber colour with frothy, white head. Fruity, malty nose with orange peel, buttery malt and toast. Malty, fruity taste with notes of bready malt, toast, orange peel and a mild citrussy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with some malt sweetness. Tasty and fresh. Quite nice, specially after a whole day of skiing.RuneStumo (2691) - Haugesund, NORWAY - JAN 15, 2011

(Draught at MacKinlay’s, Stockholm) Colour is pale amber (no surprise, the word bärnsten actually means amber), with foamy head. Nose is fruity, hoppy with citrus and some roasted notes. Taste is hoppy with citrus, caramel and hints of toffee and nuts. This is a very nice beer, but I do think it was even better (and somewhat more hoppy) before. Very good balance between the fruit, hops and the roasted malt.
15.01.2011. 0,5l Bottle. From Systembolaget Charlottenberg. Golden yellow colour with a white head. A lot of carbonation gives a frothing head of foam. Aroma is sour with stinging flavours of wild yeast and home made white wine. There is most certenly something wrong with this bottle. Thats the reason for the low rating.

Bottle. Clear golden amber with a quite good off-white head. Theres a lot of caramel/butterscotch on the nose. Like sweet burnt butter. This buttery aroma totally takes over and I can hardly detect anything else. Taste is sweet, buttery and caramelly which leads to a smooth bitterness that ends quite bitter and dry. Jämtlands beers really have their own character, and I kind of like it actually.
