A: Pours pale golden with a really large creamy white head. Dissipates quickly into some lacings.

S: Wet cardboard and corn. Boiled vegetables. Sweet malt and only faint bitter hops.

T: After smelling it; the taste holds no surprises. There is an unpleasant creamyness to it.

M: The carboantion is flat, and body medium. Aftertaste is medium long but I wished it was shorter...

O: Man, this is boring.

This was the eighth most sold strong beer in Sweden in 2004 (#24 in 2003). It is also the cheapest beer available in Sweden.

Colour is pale gold, the head is almost invisible but there are some white laces on the glass.

The smell is watery with a curious smoked touch, some sweet malt and an overall artificial feeling.

The taste is on the lighter side of the scale: It is almost watery. There are however frowzy notes of anonymous malt (some sweetness), a touch of margarine and some synthetic hops, the bitterness is very mild. Aftertaste got a touch of wheat flour and apricot candies.

The carbonation is… plain (but not stale). Small bubbles.

A cheap lager, in all ways. Unpleasant.

Oh yes. "Pilsner" in Demnark just means a "lighter lager" and got nothing to do with the German or Czech pilsners.
