4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2014 At the brewpub on Sticke Day. Golden-brown, bubbly head, very hoppy aroma, and lots of malt richness as well. Rich, chewy character, lots of sweet sugary malts with earthy hops. Quite a bit of bitterness, good dry appetizing finish. Definitely a high quality alt.
Original rating, 2005 for an export version. Golden amber colour. Slightly earthy, caramelly aroma. Chewy, woody bitterness with caramel layers and lots of earthiness. Things ease up a bit towards the finish, right when I want the intensity to increase. Sort of ashy-tasting, just like its younger brother. Solid, but unspectacular. 7-4-7-4-15 = 3.7

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
