2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
60 cl bottle from Bilka, Denmark. Clear, nut golden body with a small light brown head. Rock sugar on the nose and also acetic hints or maybe apple cider vinegar. Tastes pungently sweet and feels full bodied and warming with a balancing and almost meaty bitterness. However the bitterness develops some of those papery tones that drag the overall impression down.

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..
