2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Medium beige head. Opaque brown body with carbonation. Syrupy spicy caramel aroma with perfumy rye crisp bread notes. Dry earthy spicy taste with intense herbal notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dry-sweet spicy intensely herbal aftertaste with teak and spruce notes, as well as some apple. Basically undrinkably weird. (0.5l can from 7-Eleven, Copenhagen.)

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear dark amber, frothy offwhite head. Sweet, malty and hoppy aroma. Sweetish, bitter flavour with caramel. Rough, alcoholic finish. Can’t believe I used to chug this at Christmas, but now I know where the headache came from...

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Copenhagen 14/9 2014. 50 cl can from DøgnNetto. Pours copper with modest white head. Heavy aroma with malts, and metallic notes of alcohol. Soft mouthfeel. Heavy bock taste dominated by malts. The high alcohol content is very present. A nostalgic visit to youthful binges (and hangovers). Not a fantastic beer - but nostalgia will prevail.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
0.5 can. Clear, copper color and a small, cream-colored head. Aroma of malts, syrup, some caramel, and delicate alcohol. Taste is sweet and also malty, no surprise here; however, the alcohol is quite easily detectable here. Light to medium body, slick texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is medium long and leaves quite a lot of alcoholic features. Overall a bad bock and a bad beer.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2015 Re-discovered this very tasty Carlsberg product some years ago, just as the brewery was about to drop it from its Christmas special portfolio. Thankfully they didn’t and now it is available all year in Denmark so I don’t have to stock up around Christmas. Nice caramel color and aroma and a pleasant sweetness before the medium bitterness hops kicks in at the end of the Vieneese style brew. Good head and just the right fizziness as expected of the professionals at Carlsberg adds to the overall favourable impression of a stock beer that beats most of the micro-breweries in Denmark for sheer good taste and a hard act to follow if you care for another beer after the 47.

thanks to duff for cracking open this can. rich hue of amber, minimal head; very boozy aroma; loads of grape sugar sweetness, industrial and not great
