SamTheBarrel (777) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - JUN 22, 2014
330ml brown bottle, poured into a Pint glass. Appearance is clear amber with a medium sized beige head, that reduced quickly leaving some lacing. Aroma of caramel and rye sourdough bread. Flavours of caramel, rye sourdough bread, orange peels and toffee. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Palate is light-medium bodied, slightly oily texture and average carbonation. Quite flavorful for a 3.5% ABV, one of the best low ABV beers available in Swedish convenience stores.

33cc bottle from Hemköp. Clear dark amber with a nice, creamy white head. Quite a nice malty nose with some a very good bitterness. Of course a bit watery as it is a folköl. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
