Weirdly sour. Tastes like green beans. Has a nice full, smooth mouthfeel though. Enjoyed n its stockholm festival incarnation from an ikea in japan. BlackHaddock (7346) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2012
"Stockholm Fine Festival Beer 5,3%"
330ml can obtained from an IKEA store near Birmingham (England) by my wife.
This was one of five lager/pilsners I tasted during a sunny afternoon in my back garden, late May 2009. It held up well against two Greek, a Dutch and a UK brewed beer.
Mid range golden body, bright and sparkling, the white head tried to hang around but soon became a thin collar round the glass.
Slight grassy aroma, nothing else much, gets my standard score of 3 for a non-smelling lager/pils.
Refreshing and crisp, no great flavours but not bad at all. A pleasant mix of hop, malt and yeastiness combind to give a well balanced lager.
No lagers have a rich full bodied feel to them, well none I’ve had anyway, this one was fine when you remember it is only a 5.3% lager.
I enjoyed this drink, it was hot and I’d had some very indifferent beers before it, but overall, a ’fine festival beer’.

Bottle. Slightly gassy with a medium body. The label says its a world class lager-it isn’t. Its a resaonable but east to forget Euro-Fizz. harrisoni (18578) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2012
33cl can from tdm82 I think. Hazy gold big rocky off white head disappears quite quickly. Syrupy palt malty lager. Some syrupyness isn’t very attractive. Vague bitterness on finish. Nothing very offensive. Just a bit under brewed out if anything. Not sure entirely fully attenuated. It’s fine, mind you I’m not sure I’d want to drink it again. meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - FEB 25, 2012
LoFi (1718) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 11, 2012

Sweet malt, higher bitterness than some others in the style, but not very nice. tommann (3751) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2012
