So here’s the scenario: We left Florida at 5:00 am on Friday in the hopes that we could make it back home by around lunch time on Saturday. We had 1,400 miles to drive with four kids and a sometimes-working DVD player. As it turned out, the kids were great, the DVD player worked most of the time (I heard Frozen about 6 times) and we hit no traffic. Fast forward 22 hours and we’re pulling into the driveway at 2:50 am Saturday morning. That was probably the best drive we’ve made yet.
We had mentioned to Mark and Julie that if we weren’t too tired, they could come over and visit, since the kids missed each other and wanted to play. (not sure if by “kids” they meant Mark and I and by “play” they meant drink beer). Since we were home so early and everyone got at least some sleep, the powers that be (wives) decided that they should come over early and stay for dinner.
Mark tried this beer the week before and loved it. So much so, that he said he had a hard time not drinking the two he brought over. I was interested. If he liked it so much, chances are it was a) dark and 2) strong. When I looked at the can, I was shocked it was only 4.9%. Then I poured it out and was double shocked, it was clear yellow! What’s going on?
It had a malty smell to it, so I expected European lager, but the taste was amazing. It was smooth and slightly hoppy. It finished dry, which was different, but good. There isn’t anything bad I can say about this beer.
There’s something about Sweden that makes me think of good beer….
