Danish: Hemmeligheden bag en god juleøl er at begrænse sig – der er så mange muligheder for at komme smag i brygget, at man hurtigt kan komme for meget af julens krydderier i. ‘The Pros and Cons of Christmas’ er en balanceret Brown Ale, med julen bagerst på tungen og den gode, runde Ale-smag forrest, hjulpet godt på vej af amerikanske og engelske humletyper, samt vores hjemmelavede maltsirup der er karamelliseret i 10 timer.
Indeholder: Byg- og hvedemalt, umaltet byg, vand, humle, gær og julekrydderier.

jamaty (1832) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 10, 2015
Marrón muy oscura, opaca, sin espuma. Marcado aroma a café y cacao. Cuerpo moderado y carbonatación media. Excelente en boca, muy agradable, mezclando bien un ligero toque de dulce caramelo, toffe, con el predominante seco y amargo de café y de chocolate. El postgusto, muy duradero va alternando ambos, en un conjunto fascinante.

Dark brown and a bit thick. Has an off-white head. Dark, roasted aroma, odd roasted. Flavor starts sweet, thick, moderate bitter finish.

Backlog. On tap at Green Lion Inn. I’m not a huge fan of the winter seasonals and this didn’t leave a lasting impression.

rarbring (2246) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JAN 1, 2013
Aroma: Smelling of bread, apple, oranges, nuts and hay.
Appearance: A hazy brown colored beer. A off-white head with small lacing and some curtains.
Taste: Tasting sweet dark bread, toast, orange marmalade and red apple peel.
Palate: Medium low carbonation, a coarse texture. A medium body with a long dry finish.
Overall: Not bad at all, very much of both malt and hops. Balanced.
Note: Bottle 500 ml. (Vintage 2011) Reviewed 2013-01-01.

ansalon (2869) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - DEC 17, 2012
Dark brown with almost no head. Nose is chocolate, honey, a little peat and coffee. Mouth is more muted, with honey, chocolate and hints of orange and cinnamon. Nothing spectacular, bit quite nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cool_Bond (2298) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - DEC 8, 2012
Pretty good smell and taste to be a Brown Ale. The aftertaste is left a little while. But so very good maybe it was not. Sadly, it comes in 50cl bottles. No beer I would recomend anyway.
