3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Musty, floral, fruity aroma with some herbal, earthy hops notable. Clear, dark copper coloured body with a low but lasting, fine bubbled, off white head that recedes to cover and coats the glass. Moderately bitter, fruity flavour has plenty of subdued earthy, herbal, floral hops, fair bitterness and a light note of alcohol in the finish. Medium body with moderate carbonation and smooth, soft texture. Definitely a drinker’s drink. Sampled on cask at Charlie’s Bar in Copenhagen.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Admirably hoppy, tea-coloured pint with some sourish grapefruit hoppiness in the nose. Musty, leafy, aromatic and bitter with creamy malt afters. Only really let down by its generic, gas-pumped, best-a-man-can-get artificially foaming ’smoothness’.
