Sample from can at room temperature. Bought in Sweden by my son Steinar. Nearly black colour, creamy beige nitro head. Aroma of roast malts, hints of coffee. Smooth mouthfeel. Flavour much like the ordinary Guinness Draught, only thinner. The rest of the can went into a Guinness beef stew.

This is the Swedish folköl (popular beer) version of the classical Guinness. It is a low alcohol beer and I am rating it as such, it is obvious that it will be significantly weaker than
L: your classical deep dark (almost black) reddish browh with one finger of creamy tan head. Nothing different from the typical version.
Smell: faint malty and rooty smells.
Taste: watered down version of the original. Coffee and liquorice basically. Murky dishwater notes (as you'd expect from a light beer). Overall enjoyable taking into account what it is.
Feel: Reasonably creamy but a lot thinner than the original. Medium carbonation, dry finish.
Overall: probably the only low alcohol beer I could consistently drink and enjoy. It's basically as close as it gets to the original, just weaker in all senses. Still, if you want some "cheap" beer in Sweden (each one cost about 16 SEK - 1.6€) go ahead. It's drinkable.
