COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Præget af en behagelig grundsødme fra ikke at være helt nedgæret. Malt- og humlenuancer forstærkes således og indtryk af bl.a. passionsfrugt og urter venter den hengivent smagende. Rundhåndet humlet med Hallertauer og Columbus. Rød som Rudolfs tud.
Velegnet til julens mad og hygge.

FatPhil (8604) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 1, 2009
500ml bottle (Copenhagen) gift from Dr Space - thanks!
Sweet fruity caramelly malt aroma. Deep orange, small mouldy head. Pleasant carbonation, smooth palate. Very caramelly bias to the malt body, and sweet fruity hops. Finish tingles nicely with bitterness. Perhaps over-sweet, but not sickly. Some cocoa and other spices too in places. Covers the 5.7% easily. Very tasty new-world-hop reinterpretation of the dunkel style.

Pinball (10609) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2009
clear pale amber or dark orange, smooth large offwhite head. very nice floral medium to strong hoppy aroma, faint caramel, citrussy notes too. quite fresh. hopped enough to make it interesting. flavor is mildly bitter, floral hoppy, faint malty sweet, a little bit boring, but somewhat more bitter and hoppy than your average english beer, which it resembles. flavor indicates craftmanship to me. Nice bitter one.

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2011 Bottle, 5.7%. Clear red brown colour. Big semi-stable off-white head. The flavour is caramelly with a good bitterness. The bitterness is distinct, but pleasant. Mild grassy hop flavour. Good, but a bit anonymous.
