Recently, this temporary news appeared at Systembolaget: Arboga Höstlager, a bright Eurolayer of 4.9% from Galatea / Three Town's Independent Brewers. I have no idea where it is physically brewed, but the date stamp indicates Åbro.
The liquid is clear and straw yellow (5 EBC). The two fingers high foam is warm white, it drops quickly without leaving any traces behind.
The scent is light and clean. Little roasted ants in the background? Candy?
The taste is light, almost blurred. A little bit of pilsner. No noteable humletones, almost no fish. Light body. Mild aftertaste with malt and a little patch. It is less cute than the archetypal Swedish layer. No alcoholic taste. The finish is creamy with some white pepper.
The carbonic acid is fresh, the big bubbles are short-lived. The fluid is moderate.
An easy and just so bland layer. Very little flaws though. You may be happy for the little one.
The liquid is clear and straw yellow (5 EBC). The two finger head is off-white. It sinks quickly leaving no lacing.
The smell is light and clean. Some roasted hints in the background? Caramel?
The taste is light, almost watery. Some pilsner malt notes. No noticeable hops. Light body. Mild aftertaste with malt and a touch of band aids. No alcohol. The finish is a bit creamy with some white peppers.
The carbonation is fresh, the large bubbles are short-lived. The liquid is semi-smooth.
A light and quite uninteresting lager. Very little off-flavours, though.
