The colour is yellow with a small touch of amber; the liquid is a little cloudy. The foam is white and compact and fast disappearing.

The smell is discrete, the only thing I could notice were a little scent of sweet malt.

The first taste that hit my mouth was sweetness, then, there were notes of somewhat burned malt and a dry touch of metal. The aftertaste was a little harsh with tastes of lactose and a mild bitterness from the hops.

In other words, this is a well-crafted version of the classic Swedish lager beer. It’s something like a Volvo 240 car from the 80’s: You know exactly what you can expect. It is predictable, well built and reliable. But you won’t get any surprises or any new experiences.

Plain? Well, maybe for me who is used to (and fed up with) with this kind of beer. But if you want to try out a bottle of Swedish lager, it's an OK selection, but I prefer the dryer and more bitter Uppsala lager from the same brewery.

Oh yes, the name. It is a play on words, “Roslagen” is the archipelago north of Stockholm and east of Uppsala, the town where this beer is made. And Roslager is a lager beer, of course. Very witty.

Solid. Burnt aroma and taste (like most of the brews from this brewer). Floral hops in their, light orange in colour, malty (burnt) flavour, some spicyness from the hops ( i think), not overdone, which i like, and a solid amount of flavour, i liked this one.
