Golden with a nice head. The aroma has notes of malt, flower and a bit of honey. The flavour is fresh and nice with notes of caramel, fruit and flower. The bitterness is nice and perfectly balanced. A really nice lager - just like the name promises: a Good Lager!! lagomswedish (213) - Umeå, SWEDEN - JAN 26, 2007
Bottle Systembolaget. Another winner in my book from Nils Oscar. Nice madarin orange colour and decent head. Big nose of dough and caramel and honey. Tasty too, with a fat, creamy mouthfeel, low carbonation and chewy malts. Nicely balanced and moorish. Miksu (5053) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JAN 6, 2007

A very deep pencil-yellow combines with a healthy copper-maize hue to create quite a colorful body. Thin, but creamy white head is retained, precariously at cover, and leaves wisps of lacing down the glass as it recedes. Medium-sized bubbles rise aggressively at first, but soon quiet down. Clarity is medium-high to high.
Sweet honey and chewy graham crackers in the nose rise up, almost on par (in strength) with the saazy dryness that emanates forth as well. Clean and well-lagered, but the malt produces an near-caramel-like character that seems much overdone, when I would think the hops should be doing most of the talking. Still, a snappy yeast is not lost, picking at the malts as the hops slowly fade in to a dry, leafy, almost herbal-like afterthought. Settles out to some light dough and honey, upon warming.
Very sweet up front. Like dropping a glob of honey in your mouth. The palate is recovering from that the rest of the way, locking on to some light hops and dry yeast crispness, but not enough, in my opinion. A bit loose in texture, thanks to the very low carbonation, which also does not help with the sweetness. But there is some bitterness, the more I drink, just nothing to match the malt. Still, attenuation/carbonation issues aside, it’s a delightfully clean, well-brewed lager that just takes a little getting used to. With their wonderful mashing/extraction techniques, I think these guys are a little bit better accustomed to producing sweeter beers, but still, this is nothing to shake a fist at. No alcohol noted in flavor or aroma.

Bottle. Clear. Deep orangey golden colour with a very small head. Aroma is more malty than hoppy with hints of fruit. Sweet maltiness, some offsetting bitterness and toffee towards the end. Good body for a lager. A good enough lager it is.
