2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. 5.7%. Best before 26.09.13. Pours a hazy amber/copper with a tan head. Bit of lacing. Sweet, almost sugary aroma with a strong note of anise, and a bit of hops in the background. Cloying. Flavour is sweetish and a bit malty, with here as well; not as outspoken as in the aroma at first, but it gains strength as it warms. Picks up a grainy/cereal note as it warms as well. Mildly bitter and slightly tart finish, anise here as well. Lingering light notes of grass, hay and a touch of liquorice. Slightly greasy palate. Overall so-so. Not badly done, but not great either, and I don’t really care for anise – too cloying for my liking. 12.09.13.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle, trade with Skinnyviking. Cloudy orange coloured body to an off-white head, spotty lacework. Rather perfumed aroma of caramel and aniseed. The taste character is a mixture of apricot, caramel and aniseed. More sweet than bitter to the ending. Ok, but far from great (hotel room, Copenhagen 21.03.2013).
