A light yellow to golden color, with about an inch head that laces quickly down the glass. The scent of roasted barley is there, but very faint. The taste of the barley is evident, a small touch of hop bitterness is there, but is not pleasant on the palate. Watery to slight medium feel, a strong presence of carbonation on the palate. A standard pilsner attempt, not very impressive.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

The colour is yellow; the two finger head is white, airy and slowly sinking, leaving a fine lacing.

It smells like a Pils: Bitter hops with a sour touch. There are some notes of aroma hops, malt (tobacco leaves). Overall, a boring and industrial flavour.

The taste is watery, chemical and uninspired; some anonymous hops and light-bodied malt. The finish got an artificial bitter touch and some yeast.

The carbonation is sharp with medium sized bubbles.

After drinking a good Swedish lager at 3.5%, this one (which is probably custom made for Sweden) was a plain disappointment.
