2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Average fizzy white head that mostly lasted. Good display of lacework. Clear sparkling golden color. Aroma of citrus at first. Then some light hoppy notes, maybe hint of grass and floral. Underlying malty base with notes of dusty grain and caramel. Light to medium bodied with an average carbonation and hint of dry texture. Flavor was light sweet and bitter in balance with a hint of acidic. Finish was slightly bitter. Ok Vienna I guess.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal pub, Stavanger. ABV is 4.6%. Like all Svaneke / Bornholmer Bryg beers it is unfiltered, but the bottles are now pasteurised. (The beers are still available unpasteurised on tap in the brewpub.) Hazy golden colour, large and lasting off-white head. Moderate but pleasant aroma of floral hops, also notes of malts, hints of honey. The flavour has moderate but nice hops on a decent malty base, hints of nuts and toffee. Soft mouthfeel, very pleasant to drink.

Gylden let uklar øl.

Meget blid og drikkevenlig.
Ingen voldsom duft
