2.9/5  rDev +18.9%
look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A: Pours light golden with a white soapy head that dissapears quckliy with a sizziling sound. No lace.

S: Sweet malt, rather mild. Some bitter hops. A metallic off-smell (almost like the inside of a beer-can - strange since I'm pouring my beer from a bottle).

T: Sweet malt, with possibly a touch of corn (eventhough the label states that there is no). White bread and boiled vegetables. The thing that helps it up a bit is the hops, rather nice bitter and mild floral.

M: Aftertaste lingers for some time and goes from sweet to bitter. Body is medium and carbonation is rich, a bit offensive though.

D: A rather uneven beer; looks crappy and smells below average but tastes ok and has a really nice aftertaste. This doesn't offend anyone, but is not anything to write home about.

2.7/5  rDev +10.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

The colour is pale yellow (6 EBC), the liquid clear with some bubbles on the glass. The four finger head is airy and off-white. It sinks quickly leaving lots of thick lacing.

The smell is bitter and sweet with a mild yet distinct metallic flavour. Grassy noble hops with hints of flowers and an unexpected hint of whiteboard markers. There is also a thick, almost dense, sweetness in the background that is so typical for Swedish lagers.

The taste got quickly passing flowery bitter flavour. Sweet flavours of cereals and corn flakes. Some grass and hay. Otherwise, this beer is quite neutral. Light to medium body. The short aftertaste got more sweet notes with a frowsy edge. The bitterness is mild. Minerals and iron in the finish.

The carbonation is medium strong; the bubbles mild and small. The liquid is semi-smooth.

A disappointment. I had expected a German pilsener, but all I got was yet another overly sweet archetypical Swedish lager. Still, it goes down rather easily.

2.15/5  rDev -11.9%
look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

The beer is clear, lots off bubbles, pale straw with hints of green, a very white head, uneven, settles quickly with little lacing.

The smell is faintly of cereals, some boiled vegetables and nettles.

Initially some quick sweet corn bread, then an undecidable sourness followed by an alkaloid bitterness.

High carbonation, a thin body, slightly watery, a predominant coarse dryness.

Sorry, not my kind of beer. Not even when mowing lawn.
