cphbeerking (154) - København K, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2007
An annoying, unnatural sweetness that is attempted masked by a horde of inappropriate bitterness and a veritable bubble fest -- this beer does nothing to subvert my image of this brewery as a mainstream-ish wannabee. Like all Gourmet Bryggeriet’s wares that I’ve tasted, this offering lacks depth, that which is genuine and heartfelt brewer’s pride. No use in going into a technical description of impressions per se, that can be found elsewhere on these pages, but for the umpteenth time I feel compelled to bash the glaring lack of soul in so many DK micros. Revelling in fine drink, the spirit is lifted up to the heavens; swilling old dregs like this, it is depressed.

Øl fået til ølsmagning En af mine yndlingsøl til jul. Mørk gylden øl med let skum. karamel og kanel duft. Humlet smag , som dog er tilpas sødet og krydret. Meget drikkevenlig. Humlet eftersmag.

Sweetmalty with notes of spices such as cinnamon and honey. A sweet beer, more sweet than expected, but not that bad.

Defreni (2649) - Husum, DENMARK - NOV 11, 2007
Flaske. Malt malt og atter malt. På den ikke så fede måde. Ikke rigtig noget andet at sige, andet end at den bestemt ikke er en god juleøl i mine øjne.

Nice clean taste and follow through. Colour a bit pale for a Christmas beer, but a solid beer. Holds its own
