Sweden it´s famous for its beer, and after a week of tasting Swedish beer, I can understand why,
But luckily there’s opening up more and more microbrews around Sweden every month, so it’s still hope for the country.
In Sweden you can buy beers that’s lower threshold 2.25% everywhere. If you want anything stronger you have to go to the Systembolaget shop and only to people, that’s above 20.
This week i tried 7 of the most common beers in Sweden.
Pale Lager, Organic beer
Clear light golden with a white head. Thin and sweetish with bread, light fruit and some hints of vegetables.
The taste is rough: bread, grain, vague citrus notes and faint bitterness. This beer is just awful, its not worth to buy at all.
One of most common beers in Sweden.
Golden with a white head. Corn, grain and grass in the aroma.
The taste is malty and a bit sweet with a very mild bitterness. A really boring beer.
Another very common beer in Sweden, you will see at least one person bringing it to a party.
Clear golden color, white head. Weak watery and grainy scent.
Tastes a bit sweet and bitter and very watery. Its a very boring beer, the only reason people bring it to a party its because its one of the cheapest to buy.
Pale golden colour with white head. Aroma is malted and lightly hopped,
The taste is well-balanced and refreshing with a small taste of hops, grain and bread.
Its a average beer, nothing special at all.
Yellowish golden colour, white head. Aroma is hoppy, rubbery and slightly malty.
The taste is very watery, actually not much taste at all, a very boring beer.
Clear golden colour with a big white long lasting head. Sweet malty grassy aroma.
The taste is sweet malt with a mild taste of citrus? Its not a beer you gone remember but its still better then most Swedish beers.
Norrlands Guld Export.
By far the most common and popular beer in Sweden.
Pours yellow with a white head, loads of lively bubbles. Aroma of light malt, grain, grass.
Taste is fairly dry malts and sweet bitter, a bit watery. Nothing special but stil one of the best beers in Sweden.
The normal beers in Sweden are very boring and disappointing, hopefully i have better luck next time Im heading to Sweden to buy beer.
