A: Pours pale gold almost strawlike. The large white head is uneven and soapy, sinks very quickly into faint lacings.

S: Lots of malt, quite offensive, but also corn. Faint bitter-hops and even fainter citric notes. Smells artificial/chemical.

T: Bready sweet malt, but also corn. Some bitterness. But very artificial.

M: Aftertaste is medium (for the style) and holds some bitterness but sadly the corn lingers in the aftertaste. Body is medium full and carbonation is balanced.

D: Don't bother with this one!

This beer was the 5th most sold beer in Sweden in 2004 (2nd place in 2003). It is also known as "Starköl" (strong beer, after the label on the can) or simply "the silver can". It is one of the two cheapest beers from Carlsberg Sverige.

The colour is pale gold; the white head sinks immediately down to a thin lid.

The smell is very malty, almost “skunky”. There are sweet notes of chemical hops and some diacetyl. Not very inviting…

The taste is… How should I put this? Cheap, artificial and slovenly made. First, it doesn’t taste much at all, then, a sour taste (much like an old dishcloth) that develops into a somewhat bitter finish. The aftertaste is OK, at least compared to the ones before: Some bread-tasting malt, some anonymous synthetic bitterness.

The carbonation is quite standard for a lager; fresh with medium bubbles.

This beer is simply not worth its high sales figures.
