Danish: Kalapøjser fra Pladderballe Bryghus, er en traditionel Brown ale.. Det er en sødmefuld øltype med store mængder af caramel-malt. Humlebitterheden er moderat. Kalapøjser nydes erfaringsmæssigt i lige stort omfang af mænd og damer. Øllen er håndbrygget på ”gammeldaws” maner. Den er ufiltreret, upasteuriseret og er eftergæret på flasken. Der vil derfor forekomme bundfald.

Pours a murky, cloudy brown with a creamy beige head. Pretty disgusting phenollic aroma. Medium body, sweet roast and heavy

0.5 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Dark brown color. Aromas of raisins, figs, dark bread and cola. Taste of dark charred bread, cold coffee, raisins and some caramel. Fairly light body considering the strength. Fairly simple charred taste.

Bottle shared by dad @ my mum’s birthday. Almost opaque very dark brown color, medium sized off-white to beige head that lasts for quite some time. Smell and taste malts, some caramel, slightly a touch of chocolate, slightly sweet. Average to medium body and carbonation. Not bad at all.

Bottle @ Too many Geuze’s - only one toilet , Ulfborg 2012. Hazy light brown color with a small head. Sweet malty aroma, nuts, caramel, fruits and bread. Similar taste, very sugary. Weak body.

Categorized according to it being a Brown Ale! 1. Aroma: Decent caramel/sweet/nutty/biscuit like malt smell. Low on hops aroma (which is alright for this style i.e Brown Ale). 2. Apparance: Boring look! Very poor head retention and no lacing! Indifferent color wise.. 3. Decent malt taste (mild chocolate coming through) and a good zap of bitter hops in the end (for a brown ale) - No notable aroma/taste hops. 4. Medium body - nice mouthfeel. Unfortunately, highly under carbonated! Surprisingly bitter finish. Overall: Above average Brown Ale, but has some flaws (I suspect the one I got had been on the shelf for a while)

Flaska. Mörkbrun öl med medelestort moccafärgat skum. Detta är antagligen det bästa bryggerinamnet som finns, åtminstone för en svensk med taskig humor. Dessvärre är detta inte den bästa brown ale som finns, om än att den är klart drickbar. Dofter och smaker av mörk choklad, röda bär och sötlakrits, men allt är lite för tunt, lite för litet. Mycket kolsyrig munkänsla.

Very dark brown body with a small, very light-brown head, ok lacing. Inviting and quite strong aroma that I find rather porter-like: it’s roasted with dark caramel, dark chocolate and sweet fruity notes. Moderate to light sweet taste, very little dryness and a moderate bitterness. The flavours follow the aroma, but with less chocolate. Creamy and smooth mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Enjoyable!
[[50 cl bottle, enjoyed 10 months before BB date, from SuperBrugsen Nykøbing Sj., Denmark]
