Cask @ Charlies Bar, Cph.
Pours lightly hazy, pale golden with a small, frothy, off-white head. Disappears relatively quick. Malty sweet aroma, light vanilla and general softness. Prickly, yet low carbonation, fair mouthfeel. Flavour has light butterscotch, a dash of vanilla. Pretty dry and hoppy as well, piney and flowery. But also far sweeter than the XB. Nice balance.

Cak at Chalie’s Bar, Copenhagen. A hazy dark golden beer with a huge off-white head. The aroma has notes of citrusy hops and light notes of malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, fruit, and citusy hops - very fresh and chewy, leading to a bitter finish.
