Reminds me of nisseøl. Is fairly heavy in flavor in the beginning, but because of the 9,6% in this "light" beer, it gets better as you go.

Even though heaps better than competitors like Elefant or Dortmunder, Old Gambrinus Light is not the masterpiece itís hyped to be here in Denmark. Itís complex choice and blend of different hops is a bit of a genius though, and it is what makes this brew above average in the genre. The head vanishes too fast and the beer gets too tame on the palate too quickly. Itís a hefty brew make no mistake, but thereís no alcohol dominated taste at all, and thatís why it wins compared to other strong pilsner brews. It stays interesting til the end, but never blows me away. A very decent beer, in a genre thatís always impossible to master.
