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.

Sigmund (5104) - 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.

esp0r (1974) - 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

HopRedHead (353) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 13, 2013
Bottle from Barley Wine, CPH. Pours cloudy golden brown with a short, soft khaki head. Big caramel, pine and tropical fruit aroma. Loads of hops and a nice sweet malty backbone. Taste is big for a pale ale, big tropical hop profile with a prominent caramel malt character. Nice bitterness without being a kick in the face. Awesome pale.

stefannilssons (1462) - SWEDEN - MAY 22, 2014
[Köpenhamns ölfestival 2014] Det här var en riktigt fin öl med skönt fruktiga toner och en fint balanserad smak. Kroppen var stabil och upplevelsen fulländad.

Vignale (2057) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 29, 2013
Drucken på fat på Bishop Gustav. Fruktig och fräsch doft. Frisk citrus, lichie, passionsfrukt, ananas och lite kärvare krusbär. Smaken är också fruktig, bra karamellkropp, men trots det måttlig sötma och avslutningen är stramt torr med måttlig beska. En fin APA att dricka i vårsolen.
