UPDATED: JUL 13, 2005 Golden colour with a white head. Malty hay aroma and a sweet malty fruity taste, light harsh. Medium body and a hay finish. ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 27, 2005
Golden colour with a small white head. Malty, grainy aroma with a fruity sweetness. Malty and fruity flavor with a nice hoppy bitterness. Papsoe (25059) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 27, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2005 (Bottle 50 cl) Very yellow - almost orangey - beer, slightly hazy without much head. Loads of carbonation. Very pronounced bitterness and hop aromas. Reminds me a lot of the typical German Pilsener. The brewery classifies this as a pale lager. 141003oh6gdx (26487) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 27, 2005

(Bottle 50 cl) Fully golden, rather pretty beer, perhaps with a bit of haze. Pretty huge head. Unusually nice and fresh hop-aroma but not really very bitter. Reminds me of the kind of pilsener you get in good brew-pubs. 030603
Bottled. Yellow golden, minor head. Strong barlic aroma with fruity notes. Makty and barlic taste with hints of fruits and a bit of honey. Bitter aftertaste, but very wellbalanced beer all in all. Slightly overcarbonated. Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - DEC 2, 2004
Sampled from bottle at Stockholm Beer & Whisky Festival 2004 (#34).

Clear golden beer with a tall foamy white head. Dusty, herby and hoppy aroma. Sweet grainy flavor wih malt notes and some bitterness towards the finish. Spicy and cheesy tones also.
Not bad at all but somewhat disappointing for a "microbrew". Golden colour, white quickly disapperaring head. Crisp, fairly high carbanation. bark (255) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2004
The colour is yellow with a small touch of amber; the liquid is a little cloudy. The foam is white and compact and fast disappearing.
The smell is discrete, the only thing I could notice were a little scent of sweet malt.
The first taste that hit my mouth was sweetness, then, there were notes of somewhat burned malt and a dry touch of metal. The aftertaste was a little harsh with tastes of lactose and a mild bitterness from the hops.
In other words, this is a well-crafted version of the classic Swedish lager beer. It’s something like a Volvo 240 car from the 80’s: You know exactly what you can expect. It is predictable, well built and reliable. But you won’t get any surprises or any new experiences.
Plain? Well, maybe for me who is used to (and fed up with) with this kind of beer. But if you want to try out a bottle of Swedish lager, it’s an OK selection, but I prefer the dryer and more bitter Uppsala lager from the same brewery.
Oh yes, the name. It is a play on words, “Roslagen” is the archipelago north of Stockholm and east of Uppsala, the town where this beer is made. And Roslager is a lager beer, of course. Very witty. madsberg (11775) - Søborg, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2004
Bottled: Golden coloured. Clear. Off white fluffy head. Quickly diminishing. Malt and fruit in the nose. Is well sweetened. Flavour is malty with some light cocoa notes. Is light hopped and fruity. Is dry and light bitter in the end. Is a somewhat bland and light watery beer, where the aromas and flaovours are way to vague for my likings. TBone (18045) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 15, 2004
Bottled (BB 01/2005)Oakes (18543) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2004
Yellow, vanishing head, lively carbonation. Aroma has hay, rubber and malt. Dry grassy and tasty, medium-bodied. A bit like some Czech pilseners. Dry and slightly bitter and sweet aftertaste. Well-balanced.
Copper coloured and very well carbonated. Aroma is spicy, minty, hoppy. Quite crisp slightly fruity and dryish.

Golden lager, with a complex, hoppy-herbal nose, and a very fresh hop character and clean maltiness.
