A - very clear pine wood brown big puffy airy head and steady continued carbonation.

S - starchy and grassy but sweet. Not unlike a Malt liquor.

T - Initial hint of medicine licorice reminescant flavors. Not clear on the hop of choice. Sweet but with a subtle bitterness. Like a flat coffe that's been sitting all day. Not unpleasant.

M - spicy tickle of the abv and the bubbles mix well.

D - I was afraid this would be another generic euro lager trash but it's not bad. An upper class malt liquor.Not a great beer but good enough for its class.

A: The color of this beer is deep golden and the white head is quickly sinking but starts off really large. Some nice lacings.

S: Weak smelll. Sweet, but not too sweet malt, but also with corn. Some bitter hops in the back.

T: Tastes smooth and surprisingly well balanced. Sweet malt and faint bitter hops. Some green apples are noticable, but very faint.The ususal roughness from Euro Strong Lagers isn't there - great!

M: Body is medium and carbonation the same. Smooth liquid. Aftertaste holds a nice mix between bitter and sweet.

D: This is by far the best Strong Lager from Sweden I've had up till now. I usually think this kind of products are for those who think drunk rather than taste - but this one isn't bad at all!

A neighbor/friend brought this back from a business trip to Sweden.
Best before 24 Oct. 06.

Poured golden with a thin, but fairly well-retained head that left some lacing.
The smell was of skunk, adjuncts and plenty of alcohol.
The taste was of water and a very sweet alcohol flavor. A touch of salt became apparent as the drink progressed, as did some grassy characters near the end. The alcohol masked any specific taste, outside of water and sweetness. It was not well-balanced. Really, it seemed that any little flavor that had existed was sacrificed in favor of a higher abv.
Some sweet, adjunct-like aftertaste was left in the mouth.
Imbalanced and not tasty. But, I did finish it as the alcohol wiped away any bad flavors (as well as any decent either, unfortunately). Skip this one - If you want a higher abv, there are plenty with more taste out there. Otherwise, this beer is pointless.
