Le brun cuivré éclatant de sa robe est le préambule d’un univers de douceur et de rondeur. Le nez malté, légèrement fruité, concorde parfaitement avec un goût orienté vers des saveurs « caramel ». Soutenue à tous niveaux, elle reste très équilibrée. Une très légère note de torréfaction nous surprend toutefois en fin de bouche. Première bière produite par la brasserie, sa rondeur rappelle le plaisir et nous invite à passer un moment simple de dégustation.

JanLaursen (3084) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2012
Bottle, 75 cl. A murky amber beer with an orange, quickly diminishing head. The aroma is sweet malty and yeasty-fruity with notes of caramel, licorie and orange, light notes of spices. The flavor is sweet malty, slightly watery and unbalanced, leading to a dry and rather unpleasant harsh roasted-bitter finish. Works with stewed meat, though. A minor catastrophy on its own.

Amber coloured beer, smell is pretty good. Hops, spiced. Nice yeast and something sweet. The taste is to dry, unbalanced spiced. Some fruits. The smell made me hope for more.
