3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cherry Coca Cola with a huge, frothy, dense head of beige locks. Sweet molasses/caramee, replete with notes of chocolate, cocoa, anise and alcohol soaked cherris. Mig, full yet slick mouthfeel, all about buffeted by malt and hops. Balanced. Complex yet drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light hazy brown (EBC 30) with some copper hues and a small fading leight beige head with good viscousity. Aromas of toffee, herbs, candy, toasted dark breada and peppered dried sultanines develop. Softly carbonated with a surprisingly lofty slick texture and a full body. Herbal dried fruit malt sweetness with some spicey light developping sharp astringency and a hint of cocoa powder is noticeable. Harmonious and lasting slick sweet finish. Pretty palatable!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Fermentoren, Cph., as Baladin Leön. Fruity aroma with dark, dried fruits, caramel and chocolate malts, floral and vinous notes. Taste is sweet. Medium body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes slightly dry with fruity hints, some wooden notes and odd sour cherries. A bit messy in my book.
