3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
At a whooping 7.2% - you would think that this was more like 72%.
You sense that kick.
This is a legendary beer, before cranking up the alcohol was cool.
This is still a classic European beer.
A nice foamy head in pouring sticks around.
Pour this into a pewter tankard and you will think that you are back n the 15th century.
Th bottle is absolutely beutiful.

Bottle, cold. Haven’t had this since the 80s. Orange gold with a white head. aroma of honey, biscuit, light spices. Fairly light bodied - it’s only the lick of booze that gives away its strength. Pretty smooth and bland - and that is an achievement of sorts: there’s none of the rogue fruity or solvent notes you often get with strong lagers. Modest grassy and spicy bitter finish. Well made but a bit pointless.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of malt, sweet. Taste is malty with hops some bread and some alcohol, not as much as expected for a lager with 7.2%. Bitter.

They know what their doing at Carlsberg. This is a good strong very drinkable ale. With lots of malty sweetness with very little after taste, would recommend.

Flaske. farven er mørk gyldengul med en ok hvid skumkrone. Aromaen er sødlig vinøs og smagen er maltagtig og karamel.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml pint glass from tap.
Pours a clear orange color forming a small white and thin bubbled head with low retention and very few lacings left. Sweet caramel and honey in the nose. Flowery hops. A bit boozy. Taste follows the nose. Slightly sweet upfront followed by a bready and crispy malty taste. Grassy and mild hops bitterness. Hints of resin. Mild to heavy body, controlled medium carbonation. Sweet pale malts in the aftertaste. Sweet and boozy. Medium to low drinkability. No big deal for such a popular beer.
