look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

The color is straw colored, clear, small bubbles, a quickly receding white head leaving little lacing.

The smell is floral, grass, hay, peaches, ripe apples, some lemon.

Starting sweet, white bread, fruits, oranges and apples, some bitterness.

Medium low carbonation, soft texture, refreshing and a dry finish.

A clean, rather well hopped pilsner, not bad at all, and especially considering the rather low ABV.

Poured into a flute for pils the beer is a rich golden blonde, with a two inch white head building.pouring a pils should take about seven minutes, in order to release the right amount of flavors and carbonation.
The smell was a weak grainy taste with some hops in the background.
The taste had some characteristics of a real pils, but being doughy with some malt upfront, little lemon, some bread,
and the hops in the back giving it some bitterness, it had not the typical crisp bitterness of a real pils.
Good carbonation and easy to drink.

Light gold beer, totally clear, light white head...The aroma is very bitter, at least its not skunky...The taste is light with a typical pilsner bitter, a supped up miller lite. Light skunk on the finish, decent feel for a 3.5%, easy to drink.

Nothing special, a easy to drink low alcohol, but decent tasting beer.

The colour is yellow; the two finger head is white and airy. Some lacing.

The smell Is dry: Some malt and margarine, a hint of chalk.

The taste is rather light. Soft malty flavours. Butter. A mild bitterness gives balance. The aftertaste is somewhat bitter with a finishing flavour of cookies.

The carbonation is medium - strong. The liquid is smooth.

This beer is made for Swedish supermarkets as they are allowed to sell beers up to 3.5% ABV. And as a such, it is OK. I would like milder carbonation and more hops, though.
