4.13/5  rDev +7.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Pale golden pour with a large white kind of compact head that slowly sinks into spiderweb-like lacings.

S: Lots of German-style bitter hops. Malt is sweet and bready, perhaps a bit roasted.

T: Bready sweet malt, a bit stronger compared to the smell. And bitter hops; nicely balanced.

M: Long bitter aftertaste. Carbonation is rich and body is medium; smooth and creamy.

O: This was a pleasant surprise; considering the low price; this was way better than most cheap German Pilseners you can pick up in a German supermarket.

3.53/5  rDev -8.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Quite clear pale golden in color, with a small white head, prominent scattered lacing, and abundant carbonation.

Aroma: Subtle bread and yeast notes, classic for the style, but perhaps a touch understated.

Taste: Light cracker malt at the open, with a touch of sweetness, a bit tart through the middle of the taste, finishes crisp, with mild herbal bitterness.

Mouth feel: Smooth and full, with a slight sting of carbonation.

Drinkability/notes: A pleasant, well-crafted example of the style, also rare, unfortunately.

The colour is pale yellow; the finger thick head is white and airy. Lots of lacing occurs while the foam slowly sinks.

The smell is malty and a bit dry with notes of loaf and a bitter-sour flavour with a light metallic touch and a hint of wet pulp.

The taste is pretty straightforward; it starts off with some mild semi-sweet malt, then comes some flowery hoppy flavours with a microscopic earthy note. The aftertaste got a not-that-strong plain bitterness together with a careful almost creamy malt-taste and a hint of wet paper.

The carbonation is medium strong with lots of small, very fresh bubbles, making the beer highly gulpable.

A simple beer, but not a bad one and one of the most gulpable I've reviewed. I think this is the kind of beer that many Swedish macros are trying to brew, but they make them too sweet.
