Bottled (as Vinhandlerens Eget Brygg Crimson Ale). Amber colour, minor head. Aroma is apples, caramel, alcohol, plum and burnt sugar. Flavour is malty, sweet sugary as well as some balancing hops. Quite sour and acidic appleish overall, and especially aftertaste.

Bottled, caged and corked 75cl@RBESG’06 as "Vinhandlerens Eget Brygg Crimson Ale". Copper-amber brown, not much head. Very toffeeish nose. Light, carbonated apple flavors. A bit like drinking a cider. Interesting.

Muddy brown with a tan head. Nice fruity toffee and spice aroma. Sweetish toffee, dark fruits in the flavour. Nice. Cheers Papsoe.

Bov (9755) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 2, 2006
cloudy and not very appetizing amber-brown colour, regualr and stable brown-tainted foam, nice lace; very strong aroma of ginger and nuts, dusty; medium-bodied at best but the malt profile is not constant, finishing quite thin; more spices and some caramel in the aftertaste - it really tastes like Christmas ... but I am not a great fan of Christmas
