3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Keg (One Pint, Helsinki)
Orangy brown, brief head. Sour rotting fruit aroma. Lively carbonation. Sour. Is this off (in which case, it’s still remarkably tasty) or deliberately sour (in which case, it’s a fairly brave experiment)? Not a bad sourness, but quite lactic and milky. Pleasant full malty body behind the sharp edge. Very curious, not quite my cup of tea, but probably someone’s.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Draught@SOPP, Lahti) Hazy darkish amber with a medium, foamy and lasting, lacy head. Vegetably aroma with caramely maltiness and no hops. Sweetish, caramely flavor with fruitiness and sourish vegetable hints. Light to medium-bodied with medium carbonation. A quite dull and somewhat vegetably brew. Maybe with food, but not as such.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle, 0.5l kvickly allerød. nice fruity aroma. clear red-red-brown with almost white head. looks good. taste is a little "boring" along the taste of typical danish "clasic" beer. the fruits a little noticeable in the aftertaste, otherwise not. Palate okay, but somewhere betw. a 2 and a 3. Overall not a beer i ever plan to buy again. ørbæk has better offers.
