2.63/5  rDev +9.6%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

A - Pours yellow with a small white head. Medium carbonation. Bright.

S - Really sweet smell. Corn is there with some booziness and more grainy aromas.

T - Really mild. Slight bitterness in the finish preceded by some corn and booze. Very sweet. Cloying.

M - Smooth, medium bodied. Not enough carbonation for a lager like this.

D - It's alright. A drinkable lager but too sweet and not overly flavourful in the way I'd like it to be.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2

A: Pours pale golden with a really large aggressivly sizziling white soapy head that quickly dissipates into only very little lacings.

S: Sweet corny malt, only some bitter hops.

T: Weak taste, sweet malt with a corny overdose. Some citric notes and some butter.

M: Aftertaste is short. Body is full and carbonation medium.

D: This beer is a typical macro beer with extra alcohol for those consumers who drink beer to get drunk. For those who enjoy quality-brews; avoid!

I have to disagree with Bark on his review. I was at home by a collegue who gave me this beer. She and her husband visit Sweden a lot, they even went to the Narke brewerie in Orebro for me.

Poured in a tulip glass from Lachouffe the beer gave a enourmous head with nive carbonation.

The smell is hoppy with some bread and sweetness.

The taste is a bit sweeter than i am used in Holland but the beer surprised me very much.

Good mouthfeel and good drinkability makes this beer a good one. What i pity this beer is out of the market.

Colour is yellow; the large fizzing foam sinks down to a half-finger thick white layer.

The smell is weak with artificial notes of sweet malt.

The carbonation is fresh, but very short. There is lots of alcohol in the mouth feel.

Full-bodied sweet malts dominate the taste. There are also notes of marzipan, gravy and a touch of salt. The aftertaste got notes of malt, alcohol and rye bread.

I found this lager… Unnecessary.
