3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
RB Odense Early Summer Fun. Copper with a small white head. Rich malty aroma with biscuit and bread, dried fruit and tropical sweet fruit. Malty and fruity flavour with a yeasty hint, herbal hops and a quite bitter finish. A bit thin for what the aroma is promising

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Poured a darker hazy copper with a large, beige head of foam. Aroma has notes of fig and raisin on top of a hefty malt bill. Taste is sweet with lots of dark and dried fruits. Full bodied and thick mouthfeel. Very good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dense, opaque rusty deep amber with a thinner beige head that, with a vigorous swirl, produces about a finger and half but settles down fairly quickly to a ring and film, leaving just a touch of soapy lace. Subdued yet nuanced nose of dark caramel, raisin toast, apricot, a little cherry pie, some light spice and herbal notes, and a touch of cellar. Quite sweet with some bitterness to help balance. Medium bodied yet rich, softer carb, slick, with a longer drying toasty herbal finish. A solid brew, well made, definitely requires some study, as it is not in your face. Good once in a while brew due to price.

Smak och doft av humle, malt, jäst med toner av karamell och vingummi. God sötma med bra efterbeska. Äntligen någon tysk som sticker ut.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle (within BBE). Brown, cloudy. Nose is strong malty, with brown soft nuttyness and a bit of sweet(malty)ness - somewhat reminescent of barley wine, but not as extreme or sweet. Body is medium full and a bit dry, with a good bitterness. Has a bit of woody/porty notes, nuttiness, brown malt flavours and even some light chocolate. Very flavourful brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2013 Trade with Culchiem. Thanks. Pours dark unclear amber- rather muddy with a small white head. It has been stading up in the fridge for a week. Nose is yeast and malts. Already a little scared with it not being entirely fresh or too yeasty. Baking yeast, dough, caramel , winegums and grass. Its smooth and full bodied. Yeasty bitter finish. Overall a bit disappointed as I really liked their Nicht Filtriert and regular Alt. It’s too yeasty!
