1.94/5  rDev -18.5%
look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Poured clear pale gold with 2 cm crown.

Smells skunked (thank-you, Green Bottle!). Other than that, it smells sour and much like stale beer on a bar's floor.

The mouthfeel is like European mineral water.

The taste is sour citrus, grainy malt, some light bitterness. A fairly typical Swedish macro. It reminds me of Beck's. Skunked and Eurordinary.

Tagline: ”The beer that made Sweden famous”. During the “Mellanölsåren” (medium strong beer years) 1965-1977, when beers up to 4.5% were sold at groceries, this was one of the most popular and many people who grew up during those year gets nostalgic when you talk about “TT”. It is still seen as a youth beer.

The colour is yellow; the three finger white compact head sinks slowly leaving some fine lacing.

The smell is not very exiting; some white loaf, some sweet-sour malt and some anonymous bitter hints.

The taste is mild and inoffensive: Sweet malt, some bread-like flavours, low bitterness. The aftertaste is mosly sweet with some fragile fruity hoppy notes.

The carbonation is medium strong, small bubbles. The liquid is a bit creamy.

An inoffensive gulpable beer with quite much of sweetness. If I have understood the older beer drinkers right, this is exactly how the most popular beers were in the 70’s.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

A: This beer pours golden with a modest white kind of compact head that sinks into decent lacings.

S: Grainy malt with only a hint of corn. Sweet and semi-bitter.

T: Sweet malt with lots of corn. Only faint bitter hops. Overall a rather weak taste.

M: Body is medium and carbonation is rather offensive and rich. Aftertaste is short and holds sweetness and a bitterness with an artificial vibe.

D: Dull and boring; or put in other words: a typical Swedish macro Pale Lager.
