The beer is named after the province where the brewery is located.

The colour is medium gold; the large head is off white and airy, it sinks slowly leaving almost none lacing.

The smell is malty and fresh with fine notes of butter/margarine. Bread-like sweetness and some bitter flavours.

The taste is quite strong for an Åbro beer. The sweet malts are in the background, the body is medium. Fresh (yet anonymous) bitter notes blends with a peculiar note of margarine/cream. Some rye bread and a hint of salt. The aftertaste got a growing bitter flavour that never gets strong enough (for my taste, at least). There are lots of malt and some butter, too.

The carbonation is medium to mild; the bubbles are small and fresh. The liquid is smooth.

According to the brewery, this beer is brewed with Czech pilsner yeast. And I might say it is one of their best so far.

A: Pour is clear golden with a very large, kind of sparkeling thick head. Dissipates slowly into quite nice ladings.

S: Some malt, but sadly enough a corny kind of off-smell. Some bitter hops and faint citric notes. Not much else.

T: Kind of artificial maltyness. Some bitter hops. A doughy breadyness to it.

M: Aftertaste is short and holds both bitterness and sweetness. Carboantion is rather mild and body is smooth, medium full.

D: This is just above average for a Swedish Macro beer.

The beer is light yellow, a white quickly receding foam, leaving no lace to mention.

The smell is rather fresh, malt and some citric notes. Some hoppiness.

The beer is well balanced with a pure good bitterness.

It has a good carbonation, small bubbles and is a good thirst quencher.

Actually one of my favorite sauna beers.

Golden colored. The aroma is malty with lemon zest and a little touch of metal. The flavor is nutty and crunchy. Decent.

When pouring the beer, you get a dark yellow color with white foam. The foam have large bubbles and are medium loose, and disappear quite quickly. The aroma is a little small fresh with a little malt and citrus tones. Even smells a little butter and some bread. The taste is slightly sweet malt, fresh bitter tones mixed with butter. A little streets, are rye bread and a little salt. Hints of citrus and thin tones of hops. Will the little hints of bitterness but is quite tame.
