Bottle, bought @ Løvbjerg, Struer.
Pours dark brown with a small, fizzy yet relatively firm, off-white head. Aroma has toasted caramel, relatively light sweetness though there is a clear sugary note. High carbonation, thin and watery. Very sweet and sugary, some toasted caramel in there. Not as overly sweet as other hvidtøl and there is a slight redeeming liqourice note in the finish making it less cloying.
