Mariestads Sommarbrygd, ABV: 3.5%.
500 ml bottle, 44.95 SEK à 4-pack at Maxi ICA Stormarknad.

A: The liquid is clear golden. The head is white, foamy, and leaves some lacing.

S: A mild, malty aroma with notes of bread, hay and citrus. In the background there's something unspecific.

T: Doughy bread, citrus and herbs. It reminds me of the regular Mariestads Export. Tasteful in comparison with other standard, lower ABV, lagers. Somewhat sweet.

M: Soft on the tongue, quite light from the low ABV, but rather filling in taste. Medium bitterness.

O: A drinkable "folköl" with some taste and body. It's really not that bad. Tonight it goes great with crisps - on Thursday I'll use another bottle to try and marinate some tenderloin for a BBQ.

The beer is clear golden, a white head that recedes rather quickly but leaves lacing.

The smell is faintly of lemon and elderberries.

An initial clean biscuit sweetness, some sour fruity notes, the bitterness is rather dry and nearly sharp.

Medium high carbonation, a bit watery and fizzy.

A rather typical low-alcohol Swedish summer lager.

Colour is yellow with a tint of gold. The white foam forms a finger thick white lid.

The smell is sweet with a dough-like yeast flavour. There are also mild citric notes. Maybe it is a bit on the skunky side.

The taste is light and malty with a distinct note of white bread and some sourish citric notes. The aftertaste is a bit dry with some traces of mild hops.

Carbonation is… Average.

Yet another boring Swedish lager… Reminds me of those really cheap German lagers that are (more or less legal) imported to Sweden.
