Danish: Når man ser på denne kobberfarvede øl, er det som at se ind i et stykke rav, når det fanger det helt specielle lys ved Skagen – Det lys som var så stor en inspirationskilde for skagensmaleren, her blandt Laurits Tuxen.
Brygget på vand, malt, humle og gær. Øllet er pasteuriseret, men ufiltreret.

WTF? It smells like... shrimps? Since I’ve caught a cold I assume that it’s my nose that’s the problem here, so I keep sniffing. Ok, the sea creatures are not the strongest elements, but I swear that they are there in the back, behind the wall of sweet maltiness: malt extract, cereal, caramel and malt extract. The flavour is pretty strong, the shrimps are gone and the profile is a bit more complex than pure malt-mania. Caramel and nuts are the strongest notes, then malt extract, sweet fruits, dark dried fruits, brown sugar and hints of herbs. Moderate sweet taste with a light bitter and long-lasting finish. Mid-bodied and quite softly carbonated. A nice and malty sweet vienna! But the brewery is probably located a bit too close to the harbour.
[50 cl bottle, enjoyed 1 year before BB date, from Meny Frederikshavn, Jylland]

Tasted blind. Hazy red amber with a lasting off-white head. Malty aroma with biscuit and bread and a touch of red berries. Sweet malty flavour of raw malt and rye bread. Sharp bitterness and a thin aftertaste. A bit like a bad doppelbock
