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..

Bottle at ChrisO Holiday Tasting, London - thanks to Ronny. Pours amber-brown with a small, tan cap. Sugary brown bread on the nose, some cardboard. Good and malty flavor with rich bread, toasty sugars. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Rich and bready toast to finish, low bitterness. Good balance. Very tasty. Simple, yes, but good too.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.6 bottle. Sweet malty aroma of caramel, nuts and a tad vanilla with a touch of hops. Dark amber color with nearly no head, clear. Sweet heavy malty taste with a bit of bitterness alongside. Full body and a thick texture, average carbonation. Fine aftertaste, very much like the taste itself, gives an impression of strength, warmth and concreteness. Good one, though the specific tastes should be more distinct, it feels like one could sample them all only if it was slightly heated up.
