L -- 4
Pours a clear yellow with what started out as a weird-looking bubbly head, almost like Star San bubbles, that turned into a pure white head that sticks around for days. There’s a little haze, which detracts only a little from the appearance. Tons of lacing as well.

A – 3
A little malt sweetness, a little noble hops, but pretty bland otherwise.

T – 3.25
Very clean, a nice, light malty sweetness up front, followed by the slightest fruity ester on the back end of the sip. The malty sweetness is a bit nondescript, and the malt profile is a bit overwhelmed by that note. There’s a noble hop character, but it’s quite subdued. I’m missing the malt profile here – perhaps it’s just a ton of pale or pilsner, but there’s no bready notes.

M – 3
Light to medium, nice softness to it, with enough carbonation to provide a zip on the tongue and keep the mouthfeel interesting. The sweetness grows with temperature, which coats the teeth and not the tongue, which is slightly disappointing. It was nice when straight out of the fridge.

O – 3.25
This beer is perfectly fine. There were no flaws to it, but it wasn’t something I’d seek out. It would make for a fantastic lawnmower beer, or something you’d pop open when you get back from a long jaunt at the park or just finished a run during the warmer months.

The mucus is white and grows upwards at a leisurely pace, the bubbles are small and thick.
The beer is bright yellow.
A malty aroma comes with a subsequent less sweetness.
Flourishing aromas of orange and honey.
Little rye bread with grass tones.
Quite full-bodied aroma.
The taste is malty, slightly dry but still sweet.
Fresh flavors of orange along with some herbs and honey.
Are some rye bread and some herbs.
A balanced bitterness with flavors of new mown grass and straw.
Occasionally with carbonic acid, good balance throughout the beer.

Pours a clear golden yellow with fine head.

Smell is bready and creamy with some floral hints. Notes of citrus, buttered popcorn and sponge cake.

Taste is bready, creamy and floral. Solid bitterness and notes of citrus, wheat dough and crackers with a buttery hint. Clean and superbly drinkable.

Mouthfeel is medium, well carbonated.

Overall, Landsort has become the standard beer for a lot of Swedish pubs as their Stor Stark, and for good reason. This is a lovely lager that anyone can enjoy.

Testing this beer well chilled from a bottle poured into a tulip glass.

A: A pale, pretty turbid lager, when poured from the bottle into the glass the carbonation creates a thin foamy head that quickly shrinks.

S: The smell is pretty sharp and reminds me of a barn with cattle, not what i want to smell from a beer.

T: With the tones i pick up from the smell, i'm very sceptical about tasting it. But when tasting it the tones from the barn has disappeared and the taste is pretty good after all. It tastes like an ok-lager with a little bitterness and low malty tones as well.

M: This lager got a pretty good mouthfeel, nice carbonation,

O: An ok lager with good taste and mouthfeel, the downside is the smell that is absoluteley not what i want from a beer.

A clear straw colored brew with a big white head but rather little lacing.

The smell is rather weak, mainly fresh lemon and some grassy hops.

Upfront a bit sweet, brown sugar, bread notes, lemon, a finishing bitterness.

Medium high carbonation, fresh and a final dryness.

A good well balanced lager.

I'm very glad that I had a chance to try this via bottle (thanks Mattias!) I enjoyed it much more than the draft version. Seemed a bit cleaner and more precisely showed the characters of it and came off as a more pleasurable drinking experience. Better balance. Better drinkability.

A: This beer pours hazy golden since the beers from Nynäshamns Ångbryggeri isn't pasteurized. The head is beautiful white, creamy and thick and takes some time to dissipate.

S: Not as strong-smelling as I hoped, but rather nice anyway. There is a maltyness (caramell and pilsner-malt) mixed with lemon and grass. Nice and clean with some floral hoppy notes.

T: Malty, very malty, dry caramell malt dominates. But the dryness also is a hoppy dryness (some bitterhops) but the floral hops are also there - a real nice mix. A bit sour...

M: A mediumbodied beer with moderate carbonation. But the best part of this beer is the aftertaste - long bitterness with a dry note.

D: A very nice Lager, I had it on the balcony in a nippy swedish summerevening (mid-august) - but I guess it would go great with food. Maybe BBQ...

Yellow/golden color and creamy medium sized head that is mostly diminishing after a short while.

Light smell of malt, some grass, caramel and white bread and just a little bit of hops.

The taste is mostly malty, some grass here to, light bitterness. Also a bit sour.

A decent swedish micro lager. A bit too expensive maybe.

I have to start by disagreeing with the classification of Landsort Lager as a Euro Pale Lager. In my opinion the style is Czech lager The brewery calls it a "traditional" Swedish lager but the taste is characterized by it's bitter and spicy hops from Czechia and Germany, and it is certainly not as sweet as Swedish lagers go. The beer poured in a golden yellow colour and with a finger of foam. It actually smelled a bit like Sprite, fruity I guess. The taste was of apples and some pears, herbs and the spicy hops. It's a rich tasting brew with a strong personality which, together with Nils Oscar Pils, currently tops the best Swedish lager shortlist. But it's expensive, perhaps as much as 40% more expensive than the Czechs for sale in Sweden.

A lovely lager. Dry, slightly burnt malt, slightly resiny/spicy hops, bitter, slightly acidic towards the finish. Spicy and tasty. Tastes very swedish, in that it tastes a lot like other microbrewed Swedish lagers i've had, this one is perhaps the best (well for me anyway). I not sure why but i seemed to be the only one who liked this when tasting it with buddies....well, i thought it was good.
