3.05/5 rDev +8.2%
The colour is gold (7 EBC), the liquid clear. The three finger head is compact and uneven. It sinks slowly leaving some lacing.
The smell is malty with some semi-sweet caramel flavours. Hints of apricots and a somewhat chemical bitterness. There are some phenolic hints of soap.
The taste got both clean lager-like flavours and fruity ale-flavours. Lots of malt, but not too much sweetness. Some chemical bitter notes with hints of red berries and hay. The aftertaste is quite mild, short and mostly sweet plus a touch of metallic bitterness.
The carbonation is strong and lager-like with small bubbles. The liquid is mid-smooth.

A 50 cl brown short-necked bottle with a label with a picture of the "Höga-Kusten-Bron" (the bridge of "Höga Kusten").
A: Gloden pour with a really large airy head. That takes it's time to dissipate. Lot of lacings.
S: Malt and citric notes, but not a strong smell. A metallic off-smell...
T: Sweet malt, bready/doughy. Citric notes, mostly oranges.
M: Creamy medium body with medium carbonation. Aftertaste is rather short and both sweet and faint bitter.
D: Not a beer I'll buy again. Not bad, but not the opposite either.

The beer is copper toned, an off-white head that stays and leaves some lacing.
The smell is rather short, a malty sweetness, a hint of dried orange.
Mainly sweet, some orange, and a rather short bitterness at the end.
Medium carbonation, rather pleasant mouthfeel.
Nothing really stands out, but nothing is really bad. Goes probably well with the traditional Swedish cuisine.

First off, I didn't approach this review thinking at all of altbier. I think this might have helped me to enjoy it more.
Poured a clear copper-orange with lots of visible carbonation. The white head was very small--around a half cm--but it barely eroded and left a nice lacing.
Smelled of red licorice, orange, bubblegum. Sweeter than I like my beer to smell most of the time.
The mouthfeel is crisp, but watered-down, with medium carbonation.
In the end, the beer tasted much less sweeter than the aroma let on, but reflecting the smell. There was a bitter finish, and a slight touch of white vinegar and apple juice. In a roundabout way, this beer reminds me of an Anchor Liberty Ale clone that misses the mark.
The gaudy label with bright colours made me keep lowered expectations, but I think it's an okay, but average, beer. I wouldn't turn it down, but I won't go out of my way to get it either.

A friend from our local homebrewers' club gave me a bottle of this beer. He travels extensively in his job, so the beer came fresh in his luggage.
If this is meant to be an Alt-style beer, it is missing the mark. It pours a clear golden amber, almost a light orange color. What little head it had dissipated quickly. The first taste was decidedly malty sweet, but later samplings revealed a dry finish behind the initial sweetness. Very little hop presence; certainly not the hop character of an Alt.
This Sweedish offering is okay, but I wouldn't go out of my way to find more and it definitely fails to achieve the Alt-style it seems to want to emulate.
