3.1
Franzen (590) - SWEDEN - JUL 12, 2014
Fruity sweet aroma, actually a bit reminescent of grilled marshmallows. Clear orange, white head. Sweet caramelly taste with a balancing bitterness, could have been more bitter though. Low to average carbonation, light body. A bit too caramelly otherwise nice

2.5
SamTheBarrel (801) - 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.

3.4
NallePalle (633) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUN 19, 2014
A pleasant bitter, interesting aroma and a prominent taste. Quite at the thin side of texture. Finish is allright.

2.4
Vighals (3923) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - JUN 15, 2014
Klar rødbrun med hvitt skum. Karamell og maltlukt. Bitter humlesmak samt noe brent karamell. Kort lett bitter ettersmak

2.4
Seffle (461) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - MAY 31, 2014
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

alex_alkis (419) - SWEDEN - MAY 25, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2015 A very bitter and quite heavy beer. Good maltness in the flavor. Still it’s quite easy to drink.

2.7
ansalon (3802) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - APR 3, 2014
Pours amber with a very low white head. Aroma is rye bread, butterscotch, citrus, bitter almond. Taste is rye bread, citrus, slight metallic notes, bitter almond, butterscotch. Mouthfeel is quite thin with medium carbonation. Aftertaste is rye bread, slight caramel.

3.7
Pringao_Toribi (352) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 11, 2013
A bitter mawing as it should be, rich and spicy flavour, hoppy aftertaste with a hint of liquour.

2.6
Rasmus40 (20435) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2013
Bottle from ICA, Gothenburg. Clear amber with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel and a little toffee. Flavor is medium sweet and light bitter. Dry and light bitter finish. 300713

3.1
gyllenbock (9100) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 5, 2013
Bottle from ICA Viksjö. Copper with a creamy white head. Aroma and taste of malt, tea, some light "perfume", nuts and fruit. Rather tasty for being a 3,5% beer.
