Amber body with a huge lasting white head; Very special nose, lots of soft malts with menthol or camphor hop aromas; Super full body, to sweet with only a little sparkle; Lots of malt sweetness in long finish, some hop bitterness but mostly malt. Not good enough.

Tap @ EBF, 2008, Carlsberg.
Pours golden with a medium, creamy, white head. Aroma has good pine, light melon and grapefruity hoppiness. Fine, dry mouthfeel, though it is a tad watery. Flavour is powerfully bitter, very dry, good pine, not so good cardboard. Okay maltiness and a long, staying, dry finish.
