COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Hornbeer Vårøl bebuder forårets komme. Farven er gyldengul, der er masser af kulsyre der giver en dejlig friskhed og så er den let sød. Der er brugt gode mængder humle der sikrer tilpas bitterhed og en frugtagtig smag. Vårøl passer fint til frokostbordet, til ost eller dessert. Men Vårøl kan altså også sagtens drikkes uden mad.

esp0r (2121) - NORWAY - JUN 1, 2012
Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Dark deep red hazy, massive tanned head, it just looks fantastic in my tulip. Smells of citrus, zests, some ripe fruits and some caramel malts. Taste is medium ++ sweet, quite on the malty side, nice dark fruity flavours and light citrus zests. Finish is almost heavy bitter, an explotion citrus hops and resins, some zests too. Medium to full body, oily feel, soft carbonation. A quite massive beer, a bit of style i think, and APA is often lighter. Still a super beer, malty with a solid hop bill to back it up.
And the brewery says the beer is "Gyldengul" (Light golden)...... hehehe

Sigmund (5318) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 17, 2012
500 ml bottle, from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo. ABV is 6.4%. Brown colour, large off-white head. Very nice hoppy aroma, distinct notes of spruce, also notes of grapefruit. The medium dry flavour has also notes of spruce / pine / resin, some fruit too, balanced by sufficient brown malts. Fairly bitter finish. Yes, this is actually a beer I can associate with a Nordic spring in the fir and pine tree forests.

Palme (3591) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 16, 2012
Sampled from 0.5l bottle @ Beer Enthusiast release party. This one pours a deep hazy roasted-butter colored beer with a bubbly light caramel-colored head. It has a really present odor! Really grassy, lots of diacetyl-ish butterscotch and it’s fruity with ripe strawberries. It’s quite sweet and perhaps a bit off on the aroma. It tastes medium-hoppy with pine cones, cortex and some ripe summer berries. Leaving my mouth light dry with a fruity hoppy aftertaste. Not bad, but still not quite there. 23.04.2012
