2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Schouskjelleren. Almost clear deep golden to amber with s small, white head. Moderate hoppy and grainy aroma with citrus, pine and something slightly unpleasant. Moderate sweet with hoppy and grainy flavours and a quite decent bitterness in the finish. Quite nice, but there is something here that I don’t like, but can’t put my finger on it. Decent enough, but not something I would buy again.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ de Molen. Hazy golden to amber color, medium off-white head. Aroma is soft fruity hop, hint of caramel, some yeasty notes. Aroma is not that outspoken, probably as it is pretty old already. Soft bitterness in taste, hint of sweetness. Medium in carbonation. Should try this more fresh I think, it has lost most of its power.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at the De Molen July 2nd Tuesday tasting. Poured a very lively champagne like clear medium amber with a bubbly white head. The aroma is stale malt with a little citrus and caramel. The flavour is medium bitter, big malt, nutty, alcoholic and with some toffee in the finish. It sounds great, but in all honesty, I didn’t like it that much.
