Pours a dark amber with soft head.

Smell is malty and a bit sweet with notes of caramel and citrus with a floral hint.

Taste is soft and malty with some sweetness. Notes of caramel, brown bread, knäckebröd and some floral hints. Soft bitterness.

Mouthfeel is thin to medium, well carbonated.

Overall, a well made lager, just kind of bland.

The colour is amber-brown; the liquid clear. The three finger head is off-white and compact and it sinks down leaving lots of thick lacing.

The smell is malty with dried red berries and brown toast. Hints of raspberries and toffee. Quite mild and very clean.

The taste is quite sweet with clean notes of brown wholemeal toast, some red berries and rye crispbread. Medium body. The aftertaste is creamy and malty with sweet malt and some nuts. The finish is malty and mild.

The carbonation is medium strong, the bubbles are fresh and short-lived. The liquid is smooth.

A clean and drinkable Vienna lager, reminding a bit of a sweet English brown ale.

Can. For being a Falcon, I think it is a relatively undervalued beer. Nice together with some food.

A: Pours a copper color with a small head that fades to nominal lacing.

S: Mild aroma of caramel sweetness with a bit of grain.

T: Pretty mild taste of caramel sweetness,with a bit of roasted malt. Mild bitterness and a fairly clean finish.

F: Light body and fairly smooth. Not a lot to work with.

O: Sort of a generic run of the mill beer for the style.

50 cl brown short-necked bottle. The label is in black and red, white writing and a picture of a falcon.

A: Color is copper. The off-white head is rather large and creamy. Nice lacings.

S: Light roasted sweet malt, faint citric notes. Some bitter hops. There is an "off-smell", like wet paper - I think corn!

T: Light roasted sweet malt, faint citric notes. The taste isn't strong. Kind of metallic.

M: Aftertaste is rather short and a bit bitter. Body is light to medium and carbonation is medium.

D: Nothing to write home about.

A friend brought this back for me on a recent business trip to Sweden.
Best before 02 October 2006.

Poured copper with thin, but somewhat creamy, slightly off-white head that left a bit of lacing.
The smell was a bit thin - some grassy notes and a slight whiff of typical Euro lager skunk.
The taste was typical Euro lager at first, but some (though a bit subdued) caramel flavor crept in giving it sweet overtones. Some hop bitterness mixed in, but overall it was more sweet than bitter. The slight skunk that was in the initial smell was well hidden.
The flavors faded a bit too quickly, leaving a drop of bitterness with nothing to balance it out. But, it was relatively smooth.
It would be a very typical euro-lager, but the touch of caramel gives it a little more character.
Overall, it's not a bad brew, though nothing outstanding. It's average to slightly above average, and worth trying if you have a chance.
