500ml bottle (One Pint, Helsinki) - shared by MiP - thanks!
Sweet malty aroma, sticky hoppy bitterness. Very full bodied. A bit 1-dimensional with the hoppiness, but it’s not offensive. Plenty of malty body to support the hops.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Medium high but quickly disappearing light brown head. Hazy red brown body. Only thing I can smell here is hops. Flavor of hops of course but the smooth and oily palate makes this a bit of a bore. Aftertaste though is long with a nice hops bitterness, still very mild and a low carbonated overall impression.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, bought @ Vinspecialisten, Haderslev.
Pours a deep redish brown with a big, creamy, beige-yellow head. Fine duration. Sweet, cloying, fat hoppy aroma. Lots of pine, mango, apricot, lemons and good caramel. Medium carbonation, nice dry mouthfeel. Flavour is pleasantly sweet, very well-balanced caramel upon a strong, hoppy presence. Exceptional balance - wonderful beer from the ’new’ Søgaard.
