Bottle from Tesco. Poured a bright ruby colour, clear, but with some visible, soda-like carbonation and a big, off white head. Insipid aroma, lots of mineral and cream soda. Flavours are vapid and seem pretty fake; malty and boiled sweets. Finish was highly unpleasant mix of copper, cooked fruit and flat malt. I wonder if this was ever good...

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Rating #950, dåse fra Netto i Nysted
Mørkebrun øl med ok skum. Kedelig duft af karamel og lidt krydret humle. Meget bitter smag med ristet malt og en smule karamel, men den mangler sødme og balance generelt. Bitterheden er alt for dominerende, men er ikke elegant - det er en rå bitterhed, som nærmest bliver besk i eftersmagen. En øl der ser langt bedre ud, end den dufter og smager. Standard tyngde og tykkelse. Ikke noget scoop.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.5 can. Clear, dark amber color and a big, off-white head. Aroma is rather sweet with malty tones but also some strong cheese and skunky, barnyard notes. Taste is very sweet; there is brown sugar, bread, caramel, and some cardboard with a delicate metallic note. Medium body, creamy texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is short and sort of indistinct. All in all the beer starts of nicely but loses much of its initial appeal with time; the aroma becomes skunky, taste metallic, and finish a tad watery.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can 500 ml at home, into a Guinness pint, ABV 4.5%
Amber in colour, ttransparent enough for one to see the light activity in it. Two full fingers of thick beige head, with very good retention, leaving quite a lace on the glass.
Aroma is mostly malty, a bit stale it seems, with a hint of spices.
Taste is straw, street dust, dried dirty clothes. Not good.
Medium thin body, okay carbonation.
Overall a disappointment.
