4.55/5 rDev +28.9%
Lovely malty taste. Smooth finish. Lovely bouquet. At 5.3% it is a perfect accompaniment to many dishes. This is a beer to enjoy rather than quaff. I enjoyed one, i found the second a little bitter to the taste. I have only limited experience of Swedish beers but this tempts me to experiment further, as the intensity of the flavours is very much to my palate.

Coming in a 330ml slim brown bottle; BB 06/2014, served chilled in a straight imperial pint glass.
A: pours a light golden colour with a surprisingly low level of carbonation and a thin white head.
S: sweet-sour preserved white prunes, lightly acidic nectar-ish, syrupy malts, faintly grassy&herbal hops… Pretty intense on the malt side overall, while an yeasty acidity constantly stays in the background as well.
T: a bit flat on the entry, not particularly sweet, the pale malts have some toasty elements to it, slowly turning slightly dry with a decent layer of bitterness from lightly spicy hops, rendering a lightly chewy finishing touch at the end of each sip.
M&O: to be honest it is less carbonated than desirable, but fortunately the body is not heavy at all and the flavour profile is generally moderate and quite simplistic. All in all, an easy drinking Dortmunder lager but I would personally expect a bit bolder hop and richer malt presence.

330ml Bottle from The Cave, Glasgow:
Light amber with a thin, foamy white head on top. The beer is clear and has a few bubbles.
Light with some lager malts and sweeter notes that includes touches of honey and faint fruit. There is some citrus and grain with some basic hops although these are quite light too.
A nice lager taste throughout with some sweet flavours and some nice malts . There was a little grain that mirrored the nose and some hops too with a light, bitter finish.
Smooth with a medium body and a slightly sweet feel along with medium carbonation and a slightly dry finish.
Not a great one really, surprisingly considering the name but still ok. Basic dortmunder style but a step up from a cheap pale lager anyway so that's something.
