Harboe Classic, ABV: 2.8%.
500 ml can, 3.95 SEK at Netto.

Appearance: Golden, with a slightly off-white head.

Smell: Not very much. Malt, and some boiled vegetables. Somewhat sweet.

Taste: Dry malt. Hints of bread and metal, and a weak, sour, citrus-y aftertaste - nothing overwhelming. Medium bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Good body, considering the low ABV. Rather dry.

Overall: Not enough flavour to match the relatively big body and bitterness, but all-in-all an above standard 2.8% beer (highest ABV without alcohol tax in Sweden.) It probably matches OK with everyday food.

"Classic" is a Danish sub-style to the Pale Eurolager. It is a little darker with a bit more body than the standard lager. It was invented by Tuborg in the early '90s. This is a much weaker version, created for the Swedish supermarkets.

The colour is pale gold; the finger thick head is off-white. Very little lacing occurs.

The smell got some hoppy flowery flavours. Some dusty flavours of bitter herbs, toffee and some dough.

The taste is mild. Some dry malt, some bitter hints and a note of cream powder. The aftertaste is light with some bitterness, a touch of dust and traces of soy sauce.

The carbonation is medium strong; the small bubbles fresh. The liquid a bit smooth.
