3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at Copenhagen Beer Festival. Amber colour. Malty character with some caramel and toffee, but lacks a fresh hoppy "bite", which is a bit surprising, as Styrian Goldings and Pilgrim ought to contribute to a "fresh" character. Too much crystal malts, not enough hops, perhaps?

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2013 Bärnstensfärgad öl med stort gräddigt skum, där smörkola, fruktighet och en viss surhet når näsan. Smörkola, rabarber och vanilj i smaken. Alkoholen tränger igenom i eftersmaken.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
50 cl bottle. Rated on 18.11.2009
Dark orange colour, disappearing head. Aroma has fruits, sweetish malt and hints of vegetables. Aroma has sweetish malt, some vanilla, hints of cream and hops. Adding the yeast makes the flavour more round and worse. Drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium beige head. Reddish amber body with light carbonation.
Mealy wooden lacquer aroma with earthy toffee notes.
Dry-sweet (and faintly acidic) wooden lacquer and wild berry
taste with earthy spicy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel
with some fizz. Dryish wooden toffee aftertaste with lacquer,
spice, and earth notes. It’s not bad, but a bit low on flavour.
Lacks some character. (0.5l bottle, Fish & Beer, Copenhagen.)
