Can. For being a Falcon, I think it is a relatively undervalued beer. Nice together with some food.

50 cl brown short-necked bottle. The label is in black and red, white writing and a picture of a falcon.

A: Color is copper. The off-white head is rather large and creamy. Nice lacings.

S: Light roasted sweet malt, faint citric notes. Some bitter hops. There is an "off-smell", like wet paper - I think corn!

T: Light roasted sweet malt, faint citric notes. The taste isn't strong. Kind of metallic.

M: Aftertaste is rather short and a bit bitter. Body is light to medium and carbonation is medium.

D: Nothing to write home about.

A friend brought this back for me on a recent business trip to Sweden.
Best before 02 October 2006.

Poured copper with thin, but somewhat creamy, slightly off-white head that left a bit of lacing.
The smell was a bit thin - some grassy notes and a slight whiff of typical Euro lager skunk.
The taste was typical Euro lager at first, but some (though a bit subdued) caramel flavor crept in giving it sweet overtones. Some hop bitterness mixed in, but overall it was more sweet than bitter. The slight skunk that was in the initial smell was well hidden.
The flavors faded a bit too quickly, leaving a drop of bitterness with nothing to balance it out. But, it was relatively smooth.
It would be a very typical euro-lager, but the touch of caramel gives it a little more character.
Overall, it's not a bad brew, though nothing outstanding. It's average to slightly above average, and worth trying if you have a chance.

The colour is clear, brown with a little hint of red. The foam is very pale beige and quite small, it dissolves into an almost invisible lid.

The smell is very malty with a burned touch. There are also some hints of dried vegetables.

The carbonation is fresh and quite strong with lots of medium-sized bubbles. The mouthfeel is refreshing.

A burned note of malt dominates the taste with a dry bitterness. There must be some caramel malt in there. The aftertaste got a touch of some shady hops and some sweetness and some fruits. Frankly, the aftertaste is surprisingly short.

This is a fine example of the “bayersk” (Bravarian) style, the only alternative to pilsner you could get in Sweden during the early 20th century. A little darker, a little more malt with a little more body.
