2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear pale gold with white head. Malty bouquet with a slight burnt gun powder hint, buttered popcorns and slight hoppiness. Light to medium bodied, creamy/buttery palate with malty notes and low to moderate bitterness. This is a good, clean and well made lager. Simple, but more interesting than a standard macro lager.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slottskällans EKO-Lager, 4,5%
Clear golden beer with little white head dissolving quickly. Aroma and flavor have buttery diacetyl, pale malts and grassy hops. On flavor the fresh cut grass of the aroma turns more into dry hay. Finish has a decent bite of bitterness – not too strong but a long finish. Palate is thin and at times watery with high carbonation. Kind of a Czech pils feel, not bad at all, but gets a bit musty towards the end of the glass. Bonus point for being organic.
