3.48/5 rDev +9.4%
The beer is clear gold, a white head that leaves some lacing.
The smell is rather clean, a bit septic. A whiff of malty sugar.
The taste is surprisingly sweet, light syrup and digestive biscuits, it is balanced with some bitterness that stays well. The alcohol is noted.
Medium carbonated, a bit dry in the finish.
A rather straight down-to-the-business strong lager. Works well with a standard western cuisine.

The colour is medium gold; the firm two finger head is airy and white. Some lacing occurs.
The smell is sweet and malty with some alcohol, almonds, some bitterness and a slight hint of wet paper.
The taste is fresh and malty with some neutral bitter flavours, lightly roasted hints of boiled meat, minerals and a touch of sweet almonds. Medium body. The aftertaste got a slowly growing bitterness, some salty beef stock and a hint of alcohol.
The carbonation is medium strong, the small bubbles are fresh. The liquid is smooth.
Well. If you by any reason want to drink a strong euro lager (our version of the American malt liquors), this is one of the better with not-that-much slight chemical flavours.

A little more pressure and taste in this beer compared to the normal Mariestads Export, probably because of the alcohol content. The beer has a nice appearance and aroma in addition
I have drunk tastier beers than this, but still pretty good for a pretty normal Swedish pilsner.

A standard 50 cl short-necked brown bottle. The label is in navy-blue and red with the writing in white.
A: The color is golden with lots of small bubbles in the liquid. The enromous white head is a bit uneven and airy but doesn't dissipate to fast. Some lacings.
S: Sweet malt and bitter hops. Corn? The alcohol is present in the smell.
T: Creamy malt, slightly sweet. Faint bitter hops.
M: The aftertaste is kind of discrete, but stays for some time holding a mild bitterness. Body is medium, smooth and carbonation is medium to strong.
D: Probably the best Euro Strong Lager I've ever had, but the Style is kind of weak. If you want to try this style I suggest you try this beer.
