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.

joergen (26200) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 7, 2009
Draught at Lord Nelson. Hazy darj brown coloured with a small off white head. Fruity aroma of yeast, hops and nuts. Sweet and light roasted flavour of nuts, fruits, liquorice and hops with notes of dried fruits. Dry hoppy finish. Nice to have a danish christmas beer, that isn’t overly spices, but too much yeast in the aroma.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 5, 2010
Bottle 50 cl. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a nice and creamy off-white head. Aroma is roasted malts - hops are rather subdued. Medium body, really a malt showcase this one, lovely roasted malts with a whiff of ashes - fortunately the X-mas spices are very downplayed. Hops and malts duel to add bitterness to the finish. A solid and well made Brown Ale. 050410
