1.81/5  rDev +8.4%
look: 2.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.5

The beverage is clear pale straw colored, medium sized bubbles, a white head that settles quickly, but leaves some lacing.

A very weak chemical smell, alka-seltzer and battery acid.

A sweet sugary taste, a slightly lemon juice sourness, a very modest bitterness.

A small carbonation, very watery and thin body, no dry feeling.

This is really unflattering that this beer is among the ten most sold in Sweden.

A: Pours light golden with a large white airy head. Slow dissipation leaves decent lacings.

S: A cornish off-smell hits the nose at first, and then there's some sweetness to the malt. Faint bitter hops. Boiled vegetables.

T: Faint taste. Corn together with sweet malt. Faint bitter hops.

M: A quickly dying aftertaste. Body is thin to medium. Carbonation is medium and smooth.

D: I can't find any reason for buying this beer...

The appearance is not that bad. Golden colour, decent sized head. Very little carbonation.

Hints of yeast in the smell but not much more. The taste and mouthfeel are just as bland. It leaves no lasting impression what so ever.

One of the cheapest Swedish beers, probably not the worst though.

Pours a clear golden color with a large white head that has decent retention and no lacing. The aroma is lacking. A little sweet malt character, and nothing more. The taste is really quite bad. If I make a comparison, this would be Sweden's macro swill. It reminded me of Coors light. But there was a lightly toasted malt feel that gave some bready notes. The alcohol was also apparent, and was not too enticing. Mouthfeel is thin bodied and properly carbonated. Drinkability is fairly low. Low alcohol makes for easy consumption, but flavor is pretty bad. Hey, everything is worth a try IMO.

This beer is the cheapest strong beer in Sweden. Not if you count per litre, but the one that cost the least money per bottle/can: US ¢90 (plus deposit)

The colour is medium yellow with a tint of gold. The white compact two finger head slowly sinks down, leaving some massive lacing.

The smell is very malty and sweet; I found some caramel and a musty note of wet sheep. No hops could be traced.

The taste is very unbalanced: The sweetness is very strong and almost artificial. Then, there is a sour-bitter chemical flavour, almost like eating citric acid. The short and insipid aftertaste is sweet and sticky with some hints of malt.

The carbonation is weak and short (small bubbles); the liquid is mid-thick and sticky.

A low budget beer? Yes, in all ways!
