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.

Foffern (1301) - Bodø, NORWAY - MAY 7, 2012
Bottle sample at Beer Enthusiast release tasting, Bergen. Has a dark amber colour, slightly cloudy, and has a light beige head. Smells of sweet fruit, peaches, sweet candy, a little hops and spices, and with a good malt character. In addition, I sence diacetyl/butter tones, but this does not detract the beer, and is not present in the flavor. The fruity flavour is marked by dried fruit, leather, and spices. Have a nice medium bitterness, and the mouth feel is slick and sliky. A decent APA.

ClubGonzo (4236) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 27, 2012
Bottle sample @ Beer Enthusiast Release Tasting, Bergen. Slightly dark amber, small off-white head. Nose is grassy hops, melon and hints of diacetyl-ish butter and alcohol. Meh. Taste is grass and hints of melon on a caramel backdrop. Some more diacetyl and resin in the aftertaste, which kinda spoils a bit of the fun. Mediocre.

500 ml bottle @ Pannuhuone, Kuopio.
Pours a deep, hazy amber colour with a thick head. Aroma of sweet toasted malts, nuts and some hay. Flavour of sweet toasted malts, citrus, yeast, sweet berries, grassy hops and manure. Medium bodied, soft carbonation and a malty finish with berries. Weird.

sebletitje (6895) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 13, 2011
50 cl from DeMolen beerstore. Ambrée, col épais beige. Arôme de houblon, fruité/amer, levure, malt pale et grains avec en retrait une fine note de réglisse avec un beau bouquet de citron et agrumes. Bière où encore une fois, la levure reste un peu trop présente, notes de malt, houblon et citron pour l’amertume et une touche de fruits. Le tout offre un fini qui est trop épais.
