75cl (I know!) from draft at Arlanda airport.

Darker shade of copper, decent head.

Nice caramelly grain aroma, faint hops.

Taste is somewhat sweet and malty as well, but there is just enough hop bitterness and carbonation to maintain drinkability throughout. Body is correspondingly on the thin side but OK for the style and the basic sweetness.

A pleasant surprise, was not expecting much given the context. Very drinkable.

Pours a clear copper, with fine head.

Smell is bready, with notes of caramel and some rye.

Taste is slightly sweet and bready. Caramel comes in next, along with a soft bitterness. Well balanced.

Mouthfeel is thin to medium, well carbonated.

Overall, a good dark lager. Nothing special, but drinkable.

At Stockholm Arlanda airport Carlsberg gastro pub.

Pours to a generous white head that falls to a thin but lasting layer. Medium copper. Aroma is sweet decocted eurolager malts and a hint of spicy grassy hops. Flavor is clean and crisp with slightly caramelized malt and a pleasant balancing noble hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is to style. Good stuff...reminds me of Sam Adams lager.

Deep amber color and clear. Small head that leaves only a couple of streaks of lace.

Semi-sweet with a bit of caramel and light berry.

Tastes like a traditional Red/Amber but with a better hop kick than most. Leans to the carbonated side mouthfeel-wise. An easy beer to drink while in Sweden.
