Fad: Brunrd klar øl. Klassisk quad i duft. Stadig ung og frisk. Klart lagringspotentiale, men en smule ordinær.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle from Ølbutikken, Copenhagen. Shared at the Absalon tasting session 13. Clear, dark amber body. Low but stable beige head, decent lacework to the glass. Red oranges to the nose mingled with semi-sweet, malts. Ripe oranges in the taste profile that also brings moments of dried fruits, like prunes, and mild malty sweetness. Bittersweet ending with notes of alcohol. Heavy stuff, a bit too heavy perhaps. Nice as a slow sipper though (hotel room, Copenhagen 26.05.2013).
