Brilliant lager for a hot day. Bright golden body. The foam does not disturb. Perfect carbonation.

The smell is almost the same as the taste.

The taste is crisp and feels refreshing. Very easy to drink. A description would be sweet barley malt followed by grassy hops. Light aftertaste.

Out of all lagers, I would even dare to say that this is the best one I’ve tried so far.

Got a 33cl can at an IKEA store in Taipei.

A: Clear golden.
S: I can't detect that much from it nor off-notes.
T: Light bitterness and sweet. Common lagers like.
M: Light body. Good carbonation.
O: Not impressive. Given that it costs more than other popular lagers.

Golden color, slightly veiled, with a quite beautiful white foam, quite creamy.
Light smell, base of cereal maltiness, and some decent hop.
Very light taste, stale hop. The smell was better.
It doesn't left anything in the mouth.
Same for the aftertaste, tasteless and watery.
Macro beer, quite useless.
Not a lot of things to say about it.

The beer is clear straw colored, medium sized bubbles, a white head that leaves no lacing.

The smell is slightly cereal, some lemon and a chemical bitterness.

The taste is very sweet, white bread, lemon and lime juice, a very faint bitterness.

Medium high carbonation, a fizzy feeling, slightly sticky but rather soft, a small body.

Nope, a standard too sweet and non-tasting Swedish pale lager.

A: This beer pours straw-colored with a large white sizzeling head. Dissipation is fast and leaves only some lacings.

S: Sweet malt, a bit thin in smell. Some bitter hops and a strawberry-smell to it (kind of strange - but nice). Faint notes of corn.

T: Sweet bready light roasted malt. A bit thin in taste. Some bitter hops and the strawberries from the smell.

M: Thin and watery body and a offensive carbonation, medium strong. Aftertaste is short.

D: This is a beer that is very easy to drink - and that's, in this case, boring.

.33L emptied into a Pokal.

A: Pours straw gold with a fizzy 2-finger white head that receeds slowly to a thin ring. No lacing.

S: Sour mash, bready malt, metal.

M: Rather light bodied with a great deal of carbonation.

T: Sweet barley malt followed by grassy hops. Middling finish with a light aftertaste.

D: Nothing outstanding. It is beer, made with all the necessary ingredients, but with no regards to the final product. I could see this being sold at a festival or county fair. That would have to be the sole audience, though.

Reviewed on 30-10-09. Poured from stemmed pokal. Served chilled.

Appearance: Forms a thick layer of white foam which fizzles slowly into non-existence. Medium high effervescence. Semi hazy with a yellow to light orange hue transition (bottom - top). No lacing. Like the hue transition.

Aroma: Medium strength. Aroma is mainly of biscuit, malt, honey and resin. Some lemony and grainy notes take over as the beer warms. Smells "faulty".

Taste: Medium strength. Malty, mineraly, honey and resin. Slight medicinal and fruity notes. Nothing spectacular. Tastes a bit "faulty" as well.

Palate: Medium light bodied. Sharp medium high carbonation. The sharp carbonation hits as you sip the beer eventually evolving into a coating smooth sweetness.

Drinkability: Overall, average. Not the best Heller i've had, not the worst. It isn't particularly unique but doesn't fail completely as a session/refreshing beer. Fits the style well enough, although the carbonation might have been a bit too high. Should be served a bit on the cold side rather than chilled or the bitterness might throw the balance off.

330ml can obtained from an IKEA store near Birmingham (England) by my wife.

This was one of five lager/pilsners I tasted during a sunny afternoon in my back garden, late May 2009. It held up well against two Greek, a Dutch and a UK brewed beer.

Mid range golden body, bright and sparkling, the white head tried to hang around but soon became a thin collar round the glass.

Slight grassy aroma, nothing else much, gets my standard score of 3 for a non-smelling lager/pils.

Refreshing and crisp, no great flavours but not bad at all. A pleasant mix of hop, malt and yeastiness combind to give a well balanced lager.

No lagers have a rich full bodied feel to them, well none I've had anyway, this one was fine when you remember it is only a 5.3% lager.

I enjoyed this drink, it was hot and I'd had some very indifferent beers before it, but overal, a 'fine festival beer'.

”Stockholm Fine Festival Beer”. It is not brewed in “Stockholm” but in Halmstad on the other side of Sweden. “Fine”? Let’s see about that…The “Festival” is Stockholm Water Festival, was closed down in 1999. And “Beer”, well I can agree on that one.

This was the most popular strong beer in Sweden during the mid 90’s, merely because of the relatively low price.

The colour is pale straw yellow. The two finger white airy head sinks slowly leaving a fine lacing.

The smell is very fragile. Some sweet notes of adjuncts and a fresh bitter hint.

The taste is sweet with some passing metallic bitterness. Apart from that there is not much going on here, it is very neutral. The aftertaste got some sour yeasty slight flavours and an artificial unpleasant bitterness.

The liquid is watery; the carbonation medium strong with small sharp bubbles.

There are not much of flavours in this beer, and the one I noticed were bad.
