When pouring the beer, you get a bright yellow beer with white foam. The foam has small bubbles and is quite thick, but maintains itself for a while. The aroma is slightly fruity hops tones. The fragrance is thick and slightly greasy with some citrus notes. A little light bread brings a bit of forest scents, pine needles. The taste is a little small bitter and have tones of orange and citrus. A little lime and hints of white bread. The beer is a bit dry and the aftertaste has some hints of dough and lemon. The aftertaste sitting in a little while, and ends at the right time. Moderate carbonation.

Seeing how this is one of the cheapest beer available in sweden it sure offers much for the price.
An otherwise cheap can lager is brought to a whole new level by dry hopping it with Mosiac, in my opinion the best option if you want a cheap can beer on a hot summer day.

The colour is yellow (5 EBC), the liquid is clear. The finger thick head is white and airy, it sinks quickly leaving no lacing on the glass.

The smell is thick and somewhat oily. American hoppy notes of citric peels, resin and pine needles. Neutral sweetness in the background.

The taste is medium bitter with bitter oranges and lime peels. Light frowsty sweet flavours. Light to medium body. The aftertaste got notes of lemonade, dough and lemon acid. The short finish is dry.

The carbonation is strong, the large bubbles are short-lived. The liquid is light to medium.

Given that this is one of the cheapest beer available in Sweden, this one isn’t too bad.
