Clear amber, frothy offwhite head. Faint, malty aroma. Flavour is malty with slight hint of caramel, mostly sweet but with bitterness and also a sourish note. Boring.

Pour clear mahogany brown, with no head (Is my glass dirty or what?) Aroma of forest berries, malts, slight hay, faint caramel, bread. The taste has faint (wild unripe berries) sour notes, but is dominantly bitter, with faint sweet notes up front. Watery body, with a subtle fizzy carbonation. But that bad of a danish macro Christmas - (which means stronger Abv.) - lager imo..

a new Christmas beer from my favourite brewery.. this can is very nice, deep blue, and with lots nicer stars than tuborg julebryg. And it’s premium, that must be cool. here we go. Very nice clear dark yellow to orange golden, small offwhite to yellowish head. macro bubbly. Practically no aroma, vodka with lots of water would smell the same. not bad but simply not there. i just had a faxe dark, and that had like 10 times the aroma strength than this one. fail.. very faint malty and sort of caramelly aroma. perhaps i should have it colder who knows, perhaps they only put cold-aroma in the can. flavor is .. hmm. take a bottle of vodka, put in one toms guldkaramel, then let it sit for a month, then empty the bottle in so much water as to end up with a 5.7% alc. level. Add a bottle of sparkling water to get som fizziness, As toms guldkaramel actually tastes good, so do this beer, it’s just kinda pretty faint, and sweet and slightly malty... overly boring, but quite drinkable. many of these might become cloying as the hop balance is nonexistant, the guld karamel is all on its own. True to the danish macro christmas beer tradition. If you drink too quick you also get the telltale metal flavor of harboe

Can. Small white head, light amber color. In aroma and flavor are metal, grain and bubblegum notes with touch of caramel. Boring.

LasseVPedersen (275) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - OCT 17, 2014
Can, 33cl. Pours amber colour with small offwhite head. Aroma is surprisingly acid, sour metallic as well as the taste. Malt extract, caramel, hops, vegetables and bread/cereal. Light body. Boring, and really not worth its (although cheap) pricetag. Find something else.

Rating #884, dåse til VM i ØL

En lys kobberfarvet øl med dårligt skum. Ikke en duft, men en stank af metal og sure sokker. Sprittet og sur smag af syrlige æbler, metal, alkohol og en smule humle. Tynd krop. Virkeligt ringe bryg. Jeg tvivler på at denne hjælper nogen som helst med at komme i julestemning.
