COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Husbryggeriet Jacobsens bud på en rigtig nordisk forårsøl. Den forholdsvis høje alkoholprocent, den distinkte slovenske Styrian Golding humle, og ikke mindst den beroligende duft af jasmin fra Skovmærke ekstrakt giver øllet en frugtig aroma. Aromaen er distinkt humlet med hint af grapefrugt, fyrrenåle, karamel og jasmin. Øllet er middel fyldigt med en lang blød bitterhed.

English: Brewhouse Jacobsen’s bid for a truly Nordic forårsøl. The relatively high alcohol content, the distinctive Slovenian Styrian Golding hops, and not least the soothing scent of jasmine from Woodruff extract gives the beer a fruity aroma. The aroma is distinctive hoppy with hints of grapefruit, pine, caramel and jasmine. The beer is bulky agent with a long soft bitterness.

djoeye (1230) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 7, 2014
Apricot-tart-cream, clear copper body. Scents of caramel, plums, grass, apples, toffee. Taste of caramel, plums, apples, wort, dark sweet bread, chocolate. Crispy fresh normal. Chocolate-caramel finish. Somewhat unvaried at the end but overall a nice brew, almost as a bock. [75cl brown spec.btl abv6.3% BB.feb2015, b@Liva Kolding, t@Middelfart]

McWorta (558) - LUXEMBOURG - MAR 31, 2013
Deep copper amber in colour with a rather smooth head. Sarkling liquid nosing of floral, wet grass, hops and dust/wet soil aromas. Light prickling and medium-full bodied. Hoppy light sweet bitter taste. Finish is coherent with its light soft texture but not too long lasting. Nice one suits, the spring.

75 cl. bottle at Easter dinner. Clear, amber-golden colour with a small, off-white head. Spicy aroma with citrus fruits, caramel and chocolate malts, pines some hard identifiable spices. A bit messy, not unpleasent. Light sweet taste. Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation, Finishes lightly bitter with spices and malts. Worked fine with the lamb, but the spices makes this beer a bit messy.

pintlyfe (5) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 9, 2013 does not count
Suprisingly dark in the glass. The smell is an embodiment early spring (and impressively so) - fresh, bit of pollen, fruit and grass but in a wet, early days way rather than the full-bloom, hayfever, anti-hystamine of spring in full swing. As for taste, there was a nice pineconey/herbal scattering of hops tickling the edges of the tongue while the decent and determined caramally malt sailed straight down the middle. All in all, a very welcome reminder that the frost-bitten Danish winter is over (*perhaps the change in weather lent itself to a more favourable review).
