Bottle 33 cl, SB. Pours clear amber with a good diminishng off white head leaving lace. Aroma is very malty and grainy, floral fruity, hoppy fruity and has some Soapy grassy tones. Flavor is soapy fruity grainy and malty in the start, more fruityness and pungent bitterness together with piny tones getting more dry towards the end still keeping the good maltyness. Finishes with a longlived bitter bite. Clean and well brewed, love the steady malty body and bitterness. ephemeral8 (69) - denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 30, 2012
Bottle. Nose was clean, not particularly exciting, except for it’s lack of offensiveness. Mouth was toasty, cleanly balanced, and perfectly unobtrusive. Not bad face was made. Although I certainly did enjoy drinking it, I can’t really get excited about this beer, except as further confirmation about the link between the hardness of water and general quality of lagers vs ales.

330 ml can. Aroma is very hoppy, almost ipa?like. Some caramel notes hides behind the massive hop wall. Taste is malty, caramel, perfume notes rounded off with a nice bitter finish. Nice beer olsvammel (7289) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 22, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2013 Bottle from Systembolaget in Märsta.
It poured a light hazy orange liquid, with a medium sized dirty white fluffy head that left a very thick layer of foam on the side of the glass. Very appealing look.
Hops, fruits and flowers, also fairly sweet.
Hops, flowers and malt.
Semi-smooth mouthfeel, medium body and medium amount of carbonation.
A very nice lager, first of all it looks great, very appealing almost like a nice IPA. I also liked that it had a strong bitterness that lasted a while. The hops was noticeable and both fruity and flowery.
I think this beer was enjoyable on it’s own but should work very well with food.
I liked this one, one of the better lagers at Systembolaget. Unfortunately you have to order it or get your ass to Märsta. But it’s of the same quality as Dugges Lager nr 1, St Eriks Pilsner or Jämtlands Hell to name a few.
Re-rated on the 1st of March. liinis (1791) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 30, 2014
0,33 l can of the 5.2 % version. Very tasty brew packing with ingredients and especially with a bunch of great hops. Just delicious.

0.5 L bottle, picked up @Vinmonopolet, Vika. Two fingers of dense yellow-blond foamy head, upon a near clear orangey-golden body. Just the right aroma. Clean and refined, fresh and bready malt aroma. Some nice floral hops shines trough after a while. Clean malt flavor as well. Light sweet, light sourish. Subtle bitterness, mild earthy flavoring hops. A light bitter, gentle sourish bread-like finish. This is a very well crafted and moreish lager. A spot on Vienna. thellgren (1127) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 4, 2013
