3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I have to admit that I fully enjoyed this beer. Not as good and ’classic’ as the Kongens Bryghus Hvidtøl, but close. A little too sweet.

Chestnut brown with small dissipating head. Sweet, but not as cloying as hvidtøl. Nice malty aftertaste. I like malt.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
(on bottle)The aroma of this odd beer, is very sweet, prunes and figs in sirup. But it also has a sharp tone, wich reminds me of ryebreaddough. Very dark, allmost black and a beige, small head. The mouth is full of burned canesugar and the aftertaste is just so sweet. Good for breastfeeding women and as candy for kids. I like candy.

You just can´t judge this as a "hvidtøl". This is a speciality, and beside Thisted Bryghus´maltøl, i guess the only "maltøl" left in Denmark. A "maltøl" shall be so supersweet as this, perfect for children, breastfeeding women (my wife was really addicted to this when we had our first child), and other childish souls...
I remember the maltøl from Wiibroe (now a part of Carlsberg) to be more spicy, and with at longer malty aftertaste, but this can be just sweet memories, as this has been obsolete for say 10 years...

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Almost black with a brown hue and a nice head. The aroma is as expected sweet and malty. The flavour is sweet with a strong malty body and unexpected notes of licorice, that is a nice, lightly bitter counterweight. It’s a really nice hvidtøl.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
sweet notes to the aroma, caramel perhaps. but also a dusty smell that makes me think of roskilde festival after 5-6 days.
almost dark, very brown, nice large light-brown head that goes away after a while.
nice, very nice sweet flavor. like drinking candy. caramel, roasted notes. very slight bitterness in the end.
overall a very tasty dessert-beer with a very low alc. percentage. i like it a lot i must admit. candy..

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2010 09.02.2010 - Just some corrections in misspelling
I always have some difficulties with rating the Danish table beers, due to the dominating sweetness in hvidtøl/maltøl, and the minor (if any) hops profile that is present. However, I like this beer better than many other danish traditionals. The colour is dark red closest to bordeaux, and the aroma is like a mild glögg and very spicy. The flavor is of course very sweet as in any hvidtøl/maltøl, but like the aroma, the flavor is a lot more spicy than it usually is in hvidtøl. There is some bitterness at the end, and it can be compared to a grapefruit as several others has mentioned in their ratings. It also has a good body for its 1,8% ABV, but of course the sugar thickens the beer. I would prefer this to a normal Hvidtøl.
