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.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 27, 2011
2010-vintage: A slightly muddy brown color that carries the smell of hops and gasoline (!!?). It’s also rather hoppy on in the mouth, but the body is rather thin but delicious.It tastes nice with hints of plum, prunes and apricots and it hasn’t got any of the nauseating malt sweetness that characterizes too many brown ales. Good, long bitter aftertaste.

Draught@CPH BeerFest2010. Hazy amber colour with small beige head. Aroma is spices, fruits, wood, some grassyness as well. Flavour is sweet malts, some earth, mild wood as well as some earthy and spicy notes. A rather spicy brew, but would probably fit the Xmas table rather well.

Sampled @ Copenhagen Beer Festival 2010. Hazy, dark brown body with a medium off-white head. Aroma is slightly spicy, light roasted malt and dry fruit. Flavor is malt, caramel, some chocolate, dry fruit and balanced bitter. It’s quite straightforward, but very nice, balanced and well made. I just really, really like this one.
