A: This beer is pale golden with a medium large white airy head. Lots of bubbles in the liquid. Only some lacings.

S: Mild smell. Sweet malt with some corn. Boiled vegetables.

T: Just like the smell; sweet malt with corn. Boiled vegetables. Some faint bitterness.

M: Rather mild carbonation. Body is medium. Aftertaste is very short.

O: Yet another Macro lager, you wouldn't loose any sleep over if you didn't drink it.

2.55/5  rDev +15.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Brewed at Åbro Bryggerier.

The colour is cold pale yellow (6 EBC), the liquid clear. The three ringer off-white head is airy. It slinks slowly leaving some lacing.

The smell is malty and sweet. Some prickly bitter notes. Hints of corn. It smells like an industrial lager.

The taste is sweet and a bit dry. Some leather and a chemical bitterness. Flavours of the archetypical Swedish lager. Metallic bitterness and a stale sweetness in the aftertaste. Hints of hay and grain in the finish.

The carbonation is medium strong, the small bubbles are mild. The liquid is a bit sticky.

A cloying and somewhat wishy-washy industrial standard lager.

2.03/5  rDev -8.1%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

The brew is pale straw colored, small quickly disappearing bubbles. A white uneven head, that leaves some lacing. Looks cheap.

The smell is very sweet, cereals with sugar, boiled carrots.

Starting sweet, corn flakes with white sugar, some straight sourness, a chemical bitterness.

Low carbonation, a bit flat, a medium small body, a dry coarse finish.

Not impressed. Nothing that speaks to me. A shame since I'm born in Arboga, have to renounce the current beer tradition there.
