Rating #1047, flaske fra Netto i Nysted

Brun klar øl med utroligt holdbart lille lysebrunt skum. Syrlig duft med hindbær og karamel. Syrlig smag med en god portion karamel, ubestemmelige bær, en smule træ og en smule alkohol. Meget drikkevenlig. Ret tynd, men blød og med lavt kulsyreindhold. Alt i alt en fin øl, som dog mangler lidt kant for at blive en spændende drik.

0,33 bottle in Kosovo, courtesy of Pepa from Belgium. Thank you. Pours very dark amber, almost black with very nice reddish reflexes in the glass. The foam is cappuccino-like, medium lasting. Nose:some mild wooden notes (remotely in the background), dusty, macerated red fruits. Mouth: light tartness, again red fruits, tart and dry end.

The aroma is full of hops and christmas even though it isn’t a christmas beer. the color is dark caramel. The taste is full of christmas. It is slightly sweet and bitter at the same time. Not a fan at all.

Clear, dark brown, light tan head. Notes of sour berries, some funk, basement odors. Lightly sweet body, touch of sourness. Medium body, fairly chewy, light-to-medium acidity. Fairly short finish. Fine.
