I think this can looks really nice! Pours a golden color with a surprisingly nice big white foam. Smell is malt, maybe some grassy hops and alcohol. Not impressed. Taste is malty, bready and quite sweet with a slight alcohol bite, but not too bad. A bit crispy mouthfeel with quite much carbonation. Drinkable but quite pointless. I will never pay for it, but if someone is offering me a can I would drink it if there is nothing else interesting to have. Just your average swedish macro lager, though it's in fact a bit better than Spendrups, Mariestads etc.

The beer is clear golden straw colored, a large quickly receding uneven head that leaves good lacing.

The smell is sweetish, corn flakes and boiled vegetables.

The taste starts with Frosties (sugar covered corn flakes), complemented with some rhubarb-lime jam and a dash of battery acid mixed with booze.

Medium carbonation, small bubbles, rather soft, some body and a dry twinge at the end.

No, it really does not make it for me.

The colour is pale gold; the two finger head is white, airy and firm: It forms a small crater. Some lacing occurs.

The smell is mild. Quite a lot of flowery aroma hops. Bitter hits, some dry minerals and crisp bread. A bit German, I think.

The taste is a bit sweet, as expected (Åbro are notorious for their sweet malty lagers). Some notes of rye crisp bread and French loaf. In the background, I found some frowsy earthy hints. Or is it just the alcohol and malt? There are mild hoppy flavour notes of flowers, honey and a very delicate bitterness. The bitter flavours grow in the aftertaste but only to a point where the sweet malts takes over. The finish is malty.

The carbonation is quite mild, medium sized bubbles. The liquid is smooth for a lager.

Well. This one is marketed as "a beer for the demanding beer drinkers that only accept the best". Well, it is a little better than their standard brews, but still not a great lager.

A: This beer pours pale gold with a medium-large white head that dissipates into decent lacings.

S: Smell holds mostly sweet malts. Some bitter hops.

T: Sweet malt, a bit bready. Some bitter hops. Some faint citric notes.

M: Aftertaste is rather long and bitter - nice! Body is medium full, kind of smooth and carbonation is moderate (very moderate for a Euro Pale Lager).

D: A Macro-beer that isn't too bad.
