Fine beer for the times you want to get drunk on a reasonably priced beer. Good taste and cheap. Also under the name: Stockholm, 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. Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - NOV 25, 2002
Fruity and refreshing........................................ pilsnerrogge (3037) - Finspång, SWEDEN - JUL 10, 2002
Golden coloured. Neutral aroma. Fizzy, somewhat fruity and slightly perfumy. The finish is bitter but in an unpleasant way. Embrouille (2854) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 12, 2009
Earlier Rating: 6/28/2002 Total Score: 3.4
Medium bodied with fruity apple-notes. Not bad at all!
Canned 330ml. Aroma: Sweet malty, grainy with papaya, niaouli honey and tobacco showing up. Biscuity. Appearance: Clear pale golden with a decent, average-sized white head which leaves a slight spotty sticky lace. Flavor and palate: Medium bodied. Sweet malty with papaya showing up. Very drinkable. Biscuity. A tad salty. Low carbonation. Very low bitterness. Sweet fruity finish which is reminiscent of papaya and blackberry. Overall impression: A really enjoyable pale lager with plenty of character.

"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’.

A very charming beer that doesn’t deliver in terms of taste. Beautiful champagne cholored with a fulminant white head that lingers. Fresh hoppy smell - again the taste leaves somethign to be desired.
