2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
This can is quite hvid, yes, but the beer isn’t. Very clear copper-golden beer; just yellow tinted head, leaving shards of lace. Grassy nose, faint caramel, bit of solvent & glue. Sweet main taste, corn-like & caramel with a fleeting raw metallic-bitter impression. Turns dull-sweet in the finish as warm, decaying wet grass. MF like very watered-down milk and sugar. Metallic tang, light bodied. Bleeegh. Horrible thing - too dark and too sweet for a "pilsener". And the can claims only 5.6% ABV. Jacob, ask your money back.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear dark golden colored with a thin white head. Malt, little hop and toffee aroma with a sweet skunky tone. Thin flavor, slightly roasted with sugar notes. Quite sweet. Some caramelly notes in the finish. All right but uninteresting.

1.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
(on bottle)Only an ounce better than "Blå". Smellls reallly rotten and sweet. like when an apple is pissed on and left in the sun for a week. The taste starts off kind o´malted, but soon turns very tangy and bitter. The high carbonation gives it a sodapop-ish feel.

Amber colour with a little white head that disappears fast.
Sweet aroma with notes of alcohol. Very carbonated. Sweet aroma with an OK bitterness.
I had this one after a Ceres X-Mas blå, I prefer this one.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sweet musty nose, orangy gold, low frothy head. Warm round maltiness with honey notes. Sweet at end lingers on lips, countered only by a light bitter tinge. Smooth beer, clean palate. Decent. One of the better Danish xmas beers, but still sweeter than I prefer.

Alcohol but weak nose. Light brown-yellow, little layer of a head, soft carbonation. Malty, alcohol, rice are main tastable sources.
