2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
29-DEC2014, draft @the brewpub.
Hazy amber with lasting, lacing, low, tan head.
Aroma is very weak, mostly malty. Taste is malty, fruity, a Little sweet with a bitter finish. A lager? I guess so. Fresh for an X-mas brew, not spicy. Medium body and carbonation. Made for food I guess.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap @ the brewpub in Copenhagen. This one is a clouded deep red-brown beer with a nice medium sized off-white head that sticks around for a while. The aroma has dark malts, sour brett-hints (or is it perhaps sour berries?) Continues with some spicy woody tones. Slick on the mouthfeel with a soft to average carbonation level. Also a sourness in the flavor here. Not directly sour or infected (or is it?) but I did not care for it to much. Sour gooseberries? Could that be it? Thin chocolate hints before it ends light dryish with a lasting aftertaste. Not to christmassy if you ask me, and definitely not something I will try again. 06.01.2012

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
On tap at Færgekroen.
Lovely deep red beer with a small head. Spicy aroma. Sweet, a bit stale. Prunes, gingerbread, but an unpleasant sourness that turned me off. Some more tender loving care, and this would have been a decent brew.
