Brix (647) - DENMARK - DEC 12, 2010
Tasted 2010-12-12. Poured bronzy brown with off-white head. Kinda breadish malty with a very harsch bitter finish. It got a little better as it sat there, but it’s not impressive in any way. It’s the kind of quality I’d expect for about half a euro for a bottle.

50 cl. bottle. Pours a nice deep red brown colour with a big ok lasting beige creamish head leaving a good lacing. Thin mouthfeel. The flavour has some spices, toasted malt, caramel and some berries. Short toasty spiced finish. Rather thin Christmas brew.
