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.

The aroma of roasted malt, caramel and little fruit. The flavor is as expected, heavy and full of dark caramel, some figs / raisin and plenty of lightly roasted malt. Is it a little coffee which also briefly roam palate? It is so rich and filling that I for a moment is to doubt whether it really is a Belgian dubbel instead. All my sources says, however, that it is a brown ale, and if so, it’s a very provocative brown ale.

Hazy dark brown color with beige head. Interesting beer. The first impression of aroma was fruit, then roasty and at last licorice. For me the taste was stout like, smoked, sweetish. Well balanced beer. Nice.

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!

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.

Pinball (11918) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2012
bottle from brugsen. cloudy brown, small smooth beige head. bitter caramelly and malty aroma, quite nice for a brown ale. faint notes of roasted malts. Flavor is roasted malts, sweet caramel, end is a bit more roasted and bitter, palate a bit watery, lots of flavor for the ABV, if a little bit of roast , bordering to burnt plastic is okay in your brown ale, this one is a pretty decent one. Really. it tastes pretty good.
