2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Københavnske Øldage 07. Bottle. Warm amber with a malty, sweetish and fruity aroma, where I find raisins and spice. The flavour is slightly sour and tart, fruity (apple) and spicy - but the ginger is not a favourite of mine, not in beer, at least. The finish is dry and slightly bitter. 2145

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Spicy aroma. Definitely ginger. Medium amber color with shards of lacing from a minimal head. Starts spicy. Ginger and coriander. Some malt, followed by dark fruit -raisin? Hard to define the finish. I suppose the spice complements the hop. Ginger all the way. Quite a complex thing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle Conditioned, 500ml. Blood orange colou with lasting and heavy head. Substantial spicy aroma right from the off and initially a very spicy brew, cloves and ginger to the fore. But it does settle downto a pleasant sipping beer, Christmas Ale in character. Fortunately I had plenty of time to drink this because is not one for rushing through. Decent alcohol on the finish. Enjoyable.
