bought this in IKEA

relatively heavy and smoky export ... maybe suits the climate in the north (especially during wintertime), to me it's just not refreshing for a 'blonde' beer and not enough fruity and tasty for anything else
the bitter finish is paired with some sweetness, which makes this brew sticky ...
would not buy it again

Picked this one up in Ikea in Toulon, France in a 50cL tall can.

A-Clear golden w/white 1-finger head that lasted a couple minutes and faded into nothing.

S-Sweet fresh biscuity malt, apple sauce, hint of toffee, faint grain alcohol like the kind you pick up in the macro Euro strong ales but only a tiny bit, herbal and grassy hop notes.

T&M-Tastes okay, malt and toffee upfront w/dry herbal and grassy hop finish. Well-balanced and dry aftertaste w/hint of spice.

D-Better than what I expected. I'm not going to buy a 6-pack, but I'd drink it again.

Pours all golden with some head and some carbonation in there. Head dies after a few seconds.

Smell is faint malts, chemical hops tigether with a cloying sweetness and perhaps sone can in there.

Comes on pallate somewhat malty. A reminder of what malt is really makes this beer bad. Sweet sugary hops are in there as well with some carbonation and some alcohol.

The beer is light gold with a rather thick foam that recedes quickly, but leaves some lacing.

The smell has some malty notes, a bit of dried grass.

The taste is slightly sour, some malt, the hops gives a rather short bitterness - and not much taste.

The carbonation is good and the beer quench your thirst rather well.

Pours a two finger white head that fades quickly to a thin layer leaving a good lace. Clear amber color. Good carbonation and light-medium bodied. Slight hoppy nose. Flavor is slightly sweet with malt, surprisingly good for a label that has "export" on it. 58 SEK ~ $9.74 Villa Godtheim Restaurant Stockholm. From my notes - 7/7/2008.

This beer I drank on the train from Malmo to Stockholm. first off I had to wait for them to start selling this instead of shit 2.3s at 11am but I was lucky to hit the bar at 10.55 so I didn't have to wait much.

the beer is amazingly shitty. but it was all they had on the train. nothing else i can say about it. I should've assumed when something is labelled "export" it translates to "rubbish".

This beer was the third most sold strong beer in Sweden in 2004 (and the same place on the top ten in 2003)

The airy, large off white foam is quite firm and is sinks slowly down to a finger thick head; the colour is pale gold.

The smell is kind of strong, it got a suspicious note of old dishcloths and wet leather. There are also some notes of bitter hops and diacetyl.

The taste is better than the odour: There are lots of semi-sweet malt with some notes of French loaf, maybe it is a little bit roasted. There are also some very mild bitter hops and a creamy diacetyl-note. The aftertaste got some flavours of boiled vegetables and margarine.

The carbonation is medium strong, nothing special there.

A lager with some more diacetyl than many others... I cannot really see why this one is selling so much. It might be the lavish marketing, as this is the “premium brand” from Spendrups.

Can. A standard and good tasting swedish pilsner. Nice flavour that is dominated by malt and soft bitterness
