COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Retro Half n´Half er rødlig-sort i farven og har et cremefarvet skum. Duften præges af blide ristenuancer. Mild, sødmefuld og ikke uden en vis krop ligger denne inspirerede øl godt i munden. Smagen karakteriseres af ristet brød, en anelse karamel og balancerende humle.
Velegnet til røde bøffer og kødretter, men kan også sagtens nydes uden for måltidet.

BrianWillum (177) - København S., DENMARK - FEB 1, 2013
Nicely sweet aroma which includes licorice and roasted malt. Taste equally smokey and with licorice, but a bit too bitter. The aftertaste is a bittersweet, not very good. Dark brown beer with a thin head that stays for long.

NosirIwont (1890) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - DEC 21, 2012
Bottle. 5.0%. Best before 25.04.13. Pours a dark reddish brown with a beige/khaki head. Decent lacing. Sweet malty aroma; molasses. Somewhat like a hvidtøl, but less sweet. Flavour is sweet and malty with a note of bread and a cereal overtone. Dark fruit note as it warms; prunes maybe. Further warming brings out an apple note. Bitter finish, a bit tart and with a light roasted note. The bitterness feels a bit like liquorice, but without the flavour. Lingering light alcohol note, which is surprising considering the relatively low abv. Remote dusty/cardboard note, but not too disconcerning. Overall okay. 21.12.12.

Shared bottle @Papsoe’s. Dark reddish brown body. Low sand-colored head. Nutty and fresh bready malt aroma. Dryish, lightly roasted and bready malt flavor. Faint dark fruits. Balancing herbal and peppery bitterness. Chalky mouthfeel . Well-bodied for a 5% beer. Clean malt finish. [14.07.12]

Pours a clear and dark brown beer with a white head. The aroma is malt, roasted, caramel and nut. The flavor is weak and follows the nose. The palate is sweetness. Overall an average beer.

Beer4000 (4322) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 10, 2012
330 ml bottle. Practically clear, dark reddish brown body with a small, stable beige head. Mild but delicate aroma of roasted malt, coffee and a tiny hint of liquorices. Flavor is sweet, mild roasted malt, toast, some coffee, chocolate and a light bitterness. Medium body and medium aftertaste. A decent beer, easy drinkable and well balanced without any magnificent complexity. Quite pleasant.
