2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma: hops, applelike (in a czech way), boring, summer.
Appearance: golden yellow w/ white head.
Flavor: disappointing (because it is a lager, I’m sorry but I just don’t like lagers), bitter, slightly sweet, well balanced, however not my style.
Palate: fizzy, rich

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm, 3 June) Colour is golden, with a rocky head (like whipped cream), slowly disappearing leaving some laces. Nose is malty, nutty with butter-scotch and a lovely czech-style hop character. Some honey-like sweetness. Taste starts malty and nutty with butter-scotch and chestnut, turning into a smooth hoppy finish. Honey-like sweetness stays through the finish, and becomes a bit too sweet towards the end. The bottled version is slightly drier an more balanced, maybe not as complex. A very nice premium lager.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Probably one of, if not the best lagers being produced in Sweden right now. Rich malt taste, balanced by nice hoppy aftertaste. A regular in my fridge.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle) Probably one of the best beers I tried in Sweden. Golden color with off white head. More flavor then I expected, with a nice balance between the malts and hops. Nice mouthfeel and pleasant aftertaste.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: APR 28, 2006 I had this beer at a bar in Uppsala and it blew my mind. Very full body for a lager. The foamyness adds upp to a great feel on your tounge as you sip it. Best Sweidish beer I’ve had so far.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2006 Draught at Delirium Cafe in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Slightly hazy color, thick creamy white head.
Dominant malty scent. Big sweet taste, unexpected from the scent.
Nice bitterness, a little fruity aftertaste.
Bottle in 2005.
This is a nice, clean tasting lager. Good for drinking when you’re not after a lot of big taste, but you still want something way better than the biggest commercial beers.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Round, golden beer with some grassy hops. A very full aftertaste makes this a good, if not a splendid, lager.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small white head over copper body. Looks like your standard lager, though not too pale. Sweet malt aroma with notes of grassy hops and some fruitiness. A bit more aroma than your normal lager, and quite nice. Clean, sweet, caramelly malt taste with notes of straw, softly bitter, grassy aftertaste. Subtle, sweet, malty taste lingers. A very nice and well-made lager, with more taste than most, if not terribly exciting.
