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.

Faurschou (7) - DENMARK - NOV 16, 2009 does not count
A "pleseant" and soft structure with the real taste of X-mas brewed by a "2-man" brewery in Denmark. First beer from these guys - well done a very good beginning.

thewolf (12081) - Kolding, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2009
Tap @ Lord Nelson, Cph.
Pours muddy, deep brown with practically no head. Just a thin beige rim. Sweet aroma, roasted caramel, light coriander, ashes and a hint of chocolate. Highish carbonation, kay dry mouthfeel. Flavour is dry, softly roasted, dark chocolate, coriander. A bit to ashy and grainy in the very dry finish. And not particularly Christmas-y.
