Appearance: Kallholmens Importerad Lager pours a golden-to-amber yellow colour accompanied by a frothy crown of a cream white tone consisting of pearl-sized bubbles aplenty, whilst the beer is richly carbonated.

Smell: Butterscotch sweetness is first off, then an alert hopiness which has both pine and citric elements to it, almost like grapefruit at times, but not quite. Finally finished off with some traces of fudge that develop over time.

Taste: The grapefruit is far more vivid here but it quickly fades out and in comes a resinous taste, just the slightest reminiscence of vanilla and an almost peppery finish. It's a strong, but not overwhelming bitterness. While all of this takes place, the maltiness is continuously providing a backbone of bready characteristics.

Mouthfeel: Coarse, rather light in body while the carbonation strikes the palate with a

Overall: The prominent bitterness is completely in line with what one would expect from a cask-conditioned, unpasteurised(?) beer made in the "real ale"-style!

A: Poujrs hazy pale golden with a small thin white head. Dissipates fast to decent lacings.

S: Rather mild smell, but nice fruityness and malty. Citric.

T: Mild sourness up front, followed by sweet malt and some bitter hops and citric notes.

M: Short aftertaste; sour bitter. Light to medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Not very exciting. I'm wondering if there was something wrong with my sampled bottle, since this is a micro-brewery and they usually place better beers on the market.
