Grebbestad Lager, ABV: 3.5%.
500 ml bottle, 19.90 SEK at Hemköp.

A: A clear and deep golden-coloured liquid, with a nice-looking white head that leaves a nice ring of retention. Beautiful.

S: Malty and hoppy floral aromas, with plums, apricots, lemons, grainy bread and spices.

T: Grainy, malty flavours, with notes of flowers, grass, citrus (lemons and mandarins), hard rye bread, breakfast cereals and paper. Small to medium bitterness.

M: The body is quite easy, but decent for a 3.5% beer. I sense a kind of harsh grainy feel, and notable carbonation.

O: A beer that loose some points on being a bit too grainy and dry for my liking. Other from that this is an above standard 'folköl' that I think would pair nicely with most food.

The smell is sweet with hints of fresh bread a touch of bitter almonds. There are some noble hoppy notes of flowers and grass. Overall clean flavours.

The colour is gold (10 EBC), the liquid clear. The finger thick head is warm white and compact. It leaves minimal lacing when slowly sinking.

The taste is a bit dry and light with some pleasant hoppy-bitter flavours. Flavours of French loaf and a hint of sweet almonds. The aftertaste is quite light with some light bitterness, hay and a gentle touch of butter.

The carbonation is medium strong; the small bubbles are fresh. The liquid is a bit smooth.

A clean and fresh Euroalager with some German hoppy flavours. Not bad at all.
