I drank this in Sweden. Unexpectedly good for a corn-malt lager. Nice copper color and no head. Attractive lemon smell. The finish is light, but quite good. As the beer warms up, the smell becomes more prominent, the finish rounds out and the taste is more mellow.
Overall, worth drinking. It's typical of lower ABV Swedish beers, which are pleasantly carbonated and not very bitter.

2.48/5 rDev -17.1%
The colour is gold; the liquid is just a little hazy. The three finger white head sinks slowly to a finger thick lid, leaving some lacing.
The smell is very hoppy with fruity notes of bitter oranges and plums; there are also spicy hints of coriander and a touch of nutmeg. Hints of motor oil and thinner.
The taste is also hoppy with citric notes, but it passes rather quickly leaving room for sweet flavours of fruit candy and fresh bread. There are some very odd off flavours of old motor oil and corn oil plus a very light roasted hint. They pass, too giving room for a cleaner aftertaste with a gently growing bitterness, some exotic fruits and a touch of bitter herbs and wood.
The carbonation is medium strong; the bubbles are fresh. The liquid is mid-smooth.
The usual house flavours of Jämtlands are all here: Some American hoppy flavours, a very fragile smoky hint and some British yeast notes. Shame about the odd oily off flavours, though.
