Full-bodied and good with nice balance of malt flavor and hop bitterness. Unfortunately did the frothy head disappear a little too fast.

Golden and poured with a medium head Malts dominate with some sweetness creeping in.The flavour realy lingers.
Quite impressive although I would class it as a premium bitter rather than an old ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
5.2% ABV Bottle: BBD 28 Sep 2013, poured into a UK pint sleeve some 6 days after that date.
Looks lovely, a true amber hue to it’s body: the crown a full, deep blanket of off-white foam.
Malty and fruity nose, those aromas carry on into the taste nicely.
Semi-sweet and full of malty molasses that sweep the hop content under the surface throughout the pint, toffee, caramel and biscuity notes fill your senses and I actually enjoyed it more than the cask version, which is very unusual for me.

Nice rich golden color, with a fine white head. Good lacing. Fresh fruity and herbal/mild citric hoppy aroma. Well balanced hoppy, fruity and malty taste. Lovely thirst quencher. Good session ale.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber coloured beer with a good sized head, but lacks actvity within the glass. The aroma has a sweet fruity scent, and the taste of the beer is hoppy with a slight burn’t undercurrent. A fairly refreshing beer after a hard days graft.

500 ml can, from Dagli’brugsen Skødstrup, Denmark. ABV is 4.7%. Amber to copper colour, large off-white head. Moderate but nice fruity aroma, also notes of toffee. The flavour is fruity, with some caramel and decent hops in the background. Much better than I feared.
