2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The fragrance is characterized by sweet malt notes and rye bread. The flavor is sweet and rich, and never gets too sweet and intrusive. It has a small off-flavor conveniently of the licorice and hop bitterness is also very easy short-lived. In its entirety, it is actually a really good beer, unfortunately is has been somewhat overlooked in the market.

Fra flaske på RBHD-treff hos OG: fint utseende, sterk søtlig lukt og smak av malt og brunsukker. Mykje malt og lite (ingen) humle. Kan muligens passe godt til ris a la mande.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear dark amber colour with a fine pillowy head. Noses sugary, caramelised malt like. Softly carbonated light slick with a medium body. Sweet is the dominant flavour here with a chewy finish. Actually this is the theme of the beer, sweetness. And with the classic danish christmas ris a l’amand a classic match. By itself unspectectular with a too pronounced clogging sweetness, so get it with the dish...

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Clear, red brown. Small offwhite head. Sweet, malty, caramely aroma. Super sweet flavour, something like prunes or cola... Pretty disgusting.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Again one of those traditional Danish low alcohol dark christmas beers. This one is less sweet than others I had before - that’s a good news, so I don’t have to pour it! Still, it stays a veeeery sweet beer, full of sweet malt aromas and with hints of coffee and caramel. This one has even a (tiny) hint of hops. Well, I tghink I know why this tradition never made it to the rest of the world....
If you are someone sweet (like eating Nutella with the spoon), this one might be for you. But just to be clear, it’s the best of all those sweet low alcohol X-mas beers from Denmark I tasted. Still I don’t like it.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
20-NOV-2014, bottle @home, from Kvickly.
Clear, dark brown with a hint of red hue and quickly dying tan head. Nice sweet aroma of brown sugar and bread.
Taste the same. OK body, but turns watery. Medium carbonation or perhaps a bit softer. Short finish. Almost no bitterness. I like this companion with Risengrød.
