3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.5l bottle from beermerchants.com Since it’s Good Friday and all, I suppose it’s suitable with an Easter brew. This one pours a light blurry almost glowing amber-orange body with a small quite bubbly off-white head. The aroma has yeasty, malty and a bit of alcohol tones, continues with some fruity and sweet hints. The texture on this one is light watery and it has a soft to average carbonation level. In the flavor I get hints of heather honey, it’s sweet but it also has a mild acidity. The flavors just seems like they are not blended, and they all go in their own directions. It ends light astringent and watery with a strange light sour-ish aftertaste. Not sure what I think of it as a Easter beer, but the whole bottle went down the good old stomach quite quickly, so I guess you can say that it’s quite light drinkable. 06.04.2012

500 ml bottle. Copenhagen, Denmark.
This is a bit unorthodox rating since I enjoyed this from the bottle in the park in sunny Copenhagen listening live music. Aroma is quite typical Danish Påskeøl aroma. Malt, hops, bread and Belgian yeasty notes in kind of nasty aroma. Flavour is quite similar. Hefty hoppiness. Some honey sweetness. Unfortunately I didn’t enjoyed that much.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours amber with a sticky off white head. Nice lacing left about. Nose is hoppier than expected. Hoppy with sweet and subtle belgian influence. I get a weird, but pleasing wine/grape note. Comes through in the taste as well. Wine/grapes with honey and light fruits. A littlew sweet and a touch of booze at the back end with very soft carbonation. Nice and solid beer

Molto luppolata! Un pò mattarella! Si sente anche un pò di fichi. Il Cristo sull’etichetta potrebbe turbare i credenti, ma spacca di brutto. Soggettivamente (sempre!) è piaciuta moltissimo. Provatela

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a bottle. Pours hazy dark amber with thin white head. Aroma is nice but fairly unexciting, caramel, toffee and raisins. Similar taste with a hint of spice. Quite sweet on the palate and slow to finish. Quite nice but not particularly exciting
