3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice looking bottle and label, seems strange to put it in clear glass bottle.I hope it is not sun-struck.
Pours Amber, halcyon, and unclouded. Small ,dense ivory coloured head.
The nose is both sweet and oakish, a back ground of hops and banana and citrus, sort of a weird combo but it works.
Taste is agreeable and mellow, almost cream like in texture on first sip.Caramel, vanilla and yes, oak, come through strongest followed by the carbonation and a earthy bitter grass/lemon taste.the transition back to unctuous is not that smooth, but the finish is thick on the tongue and very candy like.
This is a good beer, worth our time to find and try.

Bottle - A rich honey color. Smells very sweet and like oak on the nose. Lots of oak taste on this beer, don’t much care for it. The oak and sweet flavor just over powers all others tastes I get from this one. I wish there was some bitterness to cut the oak taste.

Bottle pour of gold with a white head that lasts but a blink. The flavor is smooth vanilla caramel that lingers a tad. A tasty beer.

Copenhagen 1/12 2014. 33 cl bottle from Netto. Pours clear gold with white head. Aroma is of citrus and grass (very summerlike). Rather low carbonation provides soft mouthfeel. Taste is mostly malty - almost no bitterness. Slight taste of alcohol - accompagnied with notes of whiskey. A bit English but not bad.

Pours a clear dark golden color, topped with a fairly small white head. Malty aroma, notes of caramel present as well as oaky. Taste is sweet at first, caramel in there. Very mild bitterness in the finish. Nothing specvial, but still very drinkable.

Bottle from Tesco.
Pours amber/gold, single finger head. Aroma of Cannabis....or at least my bottle! Malts, oak perhaps, butterscotch, caramel. Flavour of caramel, toffee, butterscotch, vanilla...nice balance, a taste I will warm to I am sure. Nice!
