3.44/5  rDev +32.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A- Fizzy amber body beneath a rocky foam head that dies to a pale custard coloured lace that has a sticky property.

S- Very malty with no real hop aroma at all. Bready with a touch of sweet sugar much like a sukerbola.

T- Not bad at all. Decent crisp and dry malt/hop balance. On the front it begins with a malty front, bread and sugar. Then towards the back it becomes much more dry bitter and hoppy. The hop has a woody bitter nut character.

MF- Reasonably full for the style. Very smooth however with some CO2 presence.

Overall- Well balanced this beer is not at all as bad as I feared it might be.

Amber body big white foaming head
Tiny bit of mouldy orange peel on aroma
Hoppy? Mowed lawn? It tastes like mineral water

Not a huge fan of this, does not have the feel of a craft beer which is not surprising since it is brewed by Carlsberg.

Not bad, but not craft.

the rating is simply because Carlsberg are trying to trick us into thinking this is craft beer.

A clear dark brass colored beer, an off-white head that leaves good lacing. Small curtains.

Some bread, bitter oranges, grass and grape-fruit.

Sweet brown bread, orange marmalade, some bitter orange peel.

Medium low carbonation, slightly sticky, a short raw coarse finish.

Not bad at all, maybe due to low expectations, a bit short bitterness. But anyway, works for me.

“Backyard Brew” is an in-house brewery and experimental workshop at Carlsberg Sverige.

The colour is red-amber (25 EBC), the liquid clear. The two figner head is off-white and airy. It sinks quickly leaving minimal lacing.

The smell is semi-sweet and malty with some red berries. Hints of pulp. Some flowery bitter notes.

The taste is mostly malty, caramel and red malts. Some dry red berries, some caramelised sugar. Fresh mild bitter notes with dried flowers. Light to medium body. The aftertaste is balanced with some alcohol, some toffee and a very mild bitterness. The finish is mostly caramalt and some dried fruits.

The carbonation is medium strong with lots of mid sized short lived small bubbles. The liquid is light.

I liked this one, it is a no nonsense session lager. Shame about the pulp in the nose, though I recall it from several other beers brewed in Falkenberg.
