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

Mariestads Export, ABV: 5.3%.
500 ml can, 15.90 SEK (including refund) at Systembolaget.

It would be fair to mention that this beer has sentimental value to me, as I used to drink it in my earlier beer-drinking days. Mostly because I sensed it had more body, bitterness, and taste than all the other Swedish standard lagers. Now I'm gonna see what I'll think of it today.

A: Golden, with tones of copper, and a quite nice white head.

S: Sort of malty, and citrus-y, with some sour notes. Surprisingly neutral aroma.

T: Citrus fruits (like oranges), and hints of bread. Balanced, nothing really stands out, but it's rather pleasant. Decent bitterness.

M: Here's the best part, I'd say. Balanced medium body and bitterness (somewhat higher than the average). Very "lagom" with a "lagom" bitter aftertaste. Soft. Really drinkable.

O: It's not as tasty as I remember, but this is still a pretty decent lager, something I could drink more of (if I didn't have a lot of other stuff I wanted to drink). Its "lagom-ness" makes it quite OK for most occasions - if you don't count the not so "lagom" ones.

Lagom is b.t.w. the most Swedish of words, and a very common way of living and thinking in Sweden, it best translates into "moderate" or "just right" in English.

Another "fun fact": This is the second most sold beer in Sweden, after Sofiero Original - Sofiero is one of the cheapest ones at Systembolaget, while Mariestads is considered "premium" as it costs 5 SEK extra (and I actually understand why).

2.4/5  rDev -14.9%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2

Reviewed under low artificial light. Bought at IKEA.

Appearance: Pours a golden yellow brew with half finger head that quickly dissipates and non existent lacing. Low effervescence.

Aroma: Harsh aroma of hay, fennel and cooked vegetables/rice. Theres also some of the usual hop notes. The balance might comply with the style guidelines but it isn't particularly pleasant to me. Feels rushed, cheap and raw.

Taste: Medium intense flavor with grassy, metallic, fennel, earthy and other pungent notes. Again, the balance might be on point, but the flavor itself isn't particularly pleasant.

Palate: Medium low carbonation. Medium light to light bodied. Medium carbonation. Medium bitterness. Finished dry. Leaves a lingering fennel aftertaste.

Drinkability: Well, unlike most lagers, this beer doesn't strike me as particularly sessionable since it ends up unpleasant rather than boring and generic. So while the malt/hops balance is on point, Spendrups managed to make this beer completely unbearable, especially for Dortmunder fans such as myself. Unremarkable and i'm being nice.
