As this is the version of 77 Lager made for Swedish grocery stores, I picked this up at Konsum in Stockholm (during hours when Systembolaget was closed).

Appearance is light yellow with a short foamy head. Its` nose contains flowers, grains and sugar. Taking a nice swig of this low ABV brew and I taste bread, grains, some fruit and malts. Mouthfeel is low-key, finishes crisp and clean. It drinks very easily...that was not a big surprise. But, most importantly with all things considered, this is a decent beer. A really good beer for mowing the lawn or the like.

BrewDog 77 Lager, ABV: 3.4%.
330 ml bottle, 14.90 SEK at Coop Extra (in Linköping).

It's been a while since I had its big brother, and my only memory of it is that it reminded me more of an ale, but now I'll try this on its own.

A: Pale, almost hazy, orange, golden colour, and a slowly growing, white head.

S: Here are clean, fresh and fruity, hoppy aromas. I get mostly citrus and tropical fruits. Rather pleasant.

T: The hops, and the tropical fruits are still here, with a tiny hint of butter and bread. Compared to other lower ABV lagers this is very tasty, but of course it still is a little bit watery.

M: A medium, hoppy bitterness, matched with a quite light body, makes this extremely drinkable and refreshing. The hops leave a nice aftertaste on the tongue.

O: An American pale ale comes to mind, but it still has the clean feeling of a nice lager. One of the most interesting beers you could get in Swedish supermarkets. No doubt. Sadly it costs about the same as the 4.9% version at Systembolaget - but if you for some reason can't get there in time, this is a very worthy summer beer that goes great for everything from drenching thirst to BBQ steak.

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

A clear light golden beer, a white head that leaves some lacing.

The smell is slightly sweet, wheat crackers and some lemon.

The taste is in the malt area of a wheat cracker, some lemon juice, a clean, almost alkaloid, bitterness.

Medium carbonation, small zingy bubbles, the liquid is rather thin and watery, a modest dryness.

A special version (lower alcohol content) for the Swedish supermarkets. Actually a bit cleaner and nicer than it's big brother as I feel.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Special version brewed for the Swedish supermarkets.

The colour is pale gold; the liquid clear. The high off-white foam sinks to a firm three finger firm head. Lots of lacing occurs.

The smell is elegant with lots of bread-flavours, some sweetness and spicy hints of noble hops. Some yeast and honey.

The taste got some odd chemical hints of soap and turpentine. Luckily, they disappear quite quickly leaving room for clean malt, some citrus and a mild bitterness. Medium body. The aftertaste is creamy with a medium strong bitterness, hints of salt and butter.

The carbonation is medium strong with small fresh bubbles. The liquid is light.
