COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Kastaar is an authentic beer, balancing on a harmony of taste and colour, between pale and dark, between sweet and bitter and spirited, subtile and complex. The ideal refreshment because of his lower alcohol content and his fruity taste and flavour. A real K-Star from our scale, a strong fellow (meaning of Kastaar)full of allurement and very charming, with his specific Kastaarglass it has brought us a lot of pleasure during serveral decennia.
Colour : balancing between dark and pale

Technical description : Alcohol : 5,5 vol.%, Degrees Plato : 13 PL°

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) Aged sample - vintage 1988. 5% ABV in this version. Dark amber, absolutely no head and very low in carbonation. Very soft mouthfeel but very full still. Notes of both nuts and coffee - weird combination. Spicy - but again - soft. I reckon I should try this fresh one day, this sample was obviously too old. 070398

omhper (18969) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 19, 2002
UPDATED: APR 12, 2007 Bottled (1995 version sampled in November 2002).
Dark amber. Acidic toffee aroma, with a hint of spices. Velvetty mouthfeel leading to a finish with lkow bitterness. Rather one-dimensional, and probably not made perfect justice by letting it sit in a cellar for 7 years.
