2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle. A clear, golden orange beer with a fizzy & fading one finger white head. Sweet malt-dominated aroma, slightly fruity and woody with the vanilla starting out subtle but rising in prominence. Similar on the tongue, the vanilla being instantly apparent & taking the fore. Almost no bitterness, perhaps a mild toastiness. Fruity pasteurised malt aftertaste. Light to medium body, medium carbonation & an almost nonexistent finish. Mouthfeel is a bit empty. Sweet & slightly perfumed but drinkable. The pasteurisation isn’t as obtrusive as in some.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Frugtig og flad ale-type der har en udemærket eftersmag, der dog ikke redder helhedsindtryklet.

Bottle. This is a pretty bland old blonde that is over priced for what it is.

6.0%, lightly oaked beer, gold colour with no head, slight hop aroma, fairly sweet with a hint of vanilla in the taste, slightly too carbonated, not quite as good as the Original but a good beer anyway.
