2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
50 cl. bottle. Slightly hazy amber colour with a golden tint. Fast fading off-white head. Malty and spicy aroma with star anise, caramel malts and licorice, Taste is sweet and spicy. Medium body, thin feel and an average carbonation, Sweet and spicy finish with star anise. Too much star anise, actually. Even though Christmas is long over, and this beer is recommended by a couple of shabby comedians, it´s still to one-dimensional.

It’s hazy red-brown with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of anise and malt, it’s mild. The flavor has a light sweetness and the same notes - way too much anise for my liking...

Bottle, 5.7%. Kongen af Danmark aroma, sugar and anise. Almost clear dark copper colour. Small whitish head. The flavour is not as sweet as the aroma suggests, but has some anise. Flavourful, but not a sugar bomb. Good bitterness and mouthfeel.
