Aroma of malts, caramel, brown sugar and apples, a hint of spices and vomit(!). Fruity flavour with notes of apples and malts, not too sweet, easy drinking for its strength.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
This is basically a classic winter-warmer, but very much with a typically danish lager heritage. I find it uninteresting at best. Craftsmanwise there’s nothing to put your finger on, but it’s just not that good in it’s class. Boring through and through, but it gets your tummy full. Typically danish, even though it tries to be english. What a let down..
