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.

Hazy red-amber color with generous compact head. The aroma is mild, light caramel and dust. Smooth mouthfeel; caramel flavor, quite dry, with a light ashy and dusty feeling; the bitterness level is just above the average, without many hop qualities.
Easy but pleasant dry caramellish beer.
