3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml bottle, from Superbrugsen, Denmark, ABV is 7.5%. Amber to brown colour, moderate white (or slightly off-white) head. Fairly strong aroma of caramel malts and brown bread, a hint of liquorice. The flavour is malty with plenty of caramel, some spicy hops in the finish, a hint of liquorice again. More hops would be desirable, but for a Harboe product this is not too bad.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.5 bottle. Dark amber color with a slightly off-white, pillowy head. Sweet malty aroma with some caramel and caramelized sugars. Taste generally corresponds to the aroma, sweet, malty with caramel notes, not really intricate but decent enough especially for its style. Medium body, oily texture with an average carbonation. Finish is short, medium at best, pretty delicate too but nicely completes the taste. Overall the beer is a big surprise, I did not expect much after seeing it was a Pale Lager.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle, 50 cl. Clear golden amber. Small off white head. Nose of hay, brewing cereals, butter, caramel. Taste is much te same with this weird buttery note going on. Flat. Much like De 5 Gaarde Juliane, slightly more alcoolic, but even more plain and grainy.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
500 ml bottle. Thanks Timo A.
Pours a golden amber colour with a white head. Aroma of grainy malts, some berries and nuts. Flavour of grainy malts, toffee, grassy hops and some alcohol. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a grainy, light bitter and warming finish. Alcohol warms in the finish. Useless, but has no off-flavours if that’s a good thing.
