A mostely diminishing big-bubbled tan head, atop a bright browinsh-red body. Discreet aroma of sugary caramel, nothing more actually. Medium to light body. Thinnish malt body, hint of toast and vague peppery malts. No hopbitterness to speak of. Short, light watered down mouthfeel. [Bottle from Kattegatkøbmanden, Overby Lyng, Sjællands Odde]

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 50cl. Pours clear amber, red-brown colour with a stable, one-finger thick creamy beige-brown head. Pleasantly surprised with rich complex smoked malty character, caramel, brown sugar, marzipan, ripe red fruits and butter biscuits. Malty dominated, medium bitter and light sweet and acidic flavour with moderate, earthy hobs as well as a little metallic end to it. Average carbonated and medium, oily bodied. Not as sweet as expected, more balanced and more to my preferences. Pretty good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5 bottle. Nice big head, slightly off-white. Clear with a cola-like color. Malty aroma, caramel and rye bread. Nice malty taste, lightly bitter and very balanced. Medium body, creamy texture and virtually flat carbonation. Finish is very soft, has a silky touch to it, soothing. All in all a nice beer, somewhat consummate though more strength and decisiveness in taste wouldn’t hurt it.
