12th July 2008. Pale lager with a cmooth creamy malt tone. Quite a dry finish. Respectable. FatPhil (16896) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 14, 2009
330ml can (Systembolaget, Stockholm)Rune (13355) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 22, 2009
Pale, fizzy. Oooh, it’s got the stong lager aroma,and not necessarily the good kind. Sickly sweetish maltiness with a hint of heavy metals that normally spell malt liquor. Fortunately it doesn’t have those in the taste as much as I feared. Perhaps a bit cheap and unsophisticated, but at least it has some flavour, and isn’t rank. Finish is heavy metals.
Thanks to Finn for sharing a 500ml can during a rating session at Elsas. One-finger, white head mostly diminishing over a clear golden body. Alcohol heating to the nose, some malty notes behind. Sharpness of honeyed sweet malts in flavour. More outward heating from the alcohol. Very sweet and very easy to forget (Skibotn, 29.08.2009). Finn (7916) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 2, 2009
Boks 0,5l fra Systembolaget i Kiruna. Lys gylden farge. Skummet forsvinner fort. Søt maltaroma. Smaken er søt malt, litt frukt og alkohol. Kjedelig. oh6gdx (26487) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 28, 2009
Canned (thanks T.M.). Golden colour, small white head. Aroma has malts, some slight alcoholic notes as well as honey. Flavour is malts, some alcohol, mild hoppyness as well as some slight herbal notes. Interesting ESL, which atleast while cold is very balanced and not too alcoholic.

Bottle. Clear golden colour with large creamy white mostly diminishing head. Malty and hoppy aroma and flavor. rauchbier (3924) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2009
Bottle, from Rhythm & Booze in Brigg. Gold, thin shortlived white head and low condition. Trace sweet malt in the nose, soft and sweet initially in the mouth but becoming fuller bodied with time and developing a chalky bitterness, slightly alcoholic in the finish with a slight lingering peppery spiciness.
