3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle 70 cl) Reddish more thna black, discreet lightly creamy head. Don’t expect a burned, dry stout here, think more of a Dunkel - Czech style, although admittedly stronger. And as such it works all right. Mainly this is all malt, roasted malt with only weak hints of licorice. 110704

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Brown colour with an off-white head.
Aroma of chocolate, spices and nuts.
The flavour is a watery, but dominated by chocolate, coffee and spices.
Not bad, but tastes and looks more like a dunkel than a stout.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(700 ml bottle). Deep brown colour, but far from black. Probably the palest "stout" I’ve seen. But if you disregard the chosen style name, this is a drinkable and refreshing beer. Good head which leaves a nice lacing. Moderate malty aroma with a light roastiness, plenty of caramel but not really sweetish. Flavour is malts and caramel fairly well balanced with the hops, but the mouthfeel is a bit thin and watery. Reasonably hoppy aftertaste. OKish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2006 Bottle. Deep reddish copper colour with a white/light brown head. Nice, although not very stout-like. Light malty aroma with a nut-like bitterness. Wood and oil. Pretty bitter, oily flavour. The aftertaste is not so powerful. A bit watery palate. Easy to ’take on’, but still has the ’voluminous’ qualities of the stout, albeit dampened a bit.

(on bottle) What´s the point here? Pale as a dunkel and just a dry, bitter taste of beer. Wonder what´s going trough the head of a brewer, who puts it all on the line and then makes such bad beer as Skands? Or is she secretly supported by Carlsberg; Skands is all over the place all of a sudden. I see a consperacy, and a bad beer, for sure.
Go back to making Carlsberg Light Birthe.
