Score: 2.4 to 2.7
clear amber, creamy beige head, thick lace, light floral hop aroma, crisp dry caramel malt flavor with spicy hops, just a touch of sweetness from the rich malt, light bitterness lasts into the finish, a nice blend of flavors makes a very drinkable but not too exciting beer

16.9oz bottle-pours a foamy off white head and slightly hazy copper color. Aroma is light/medium malt, yeast, maybe some faint fruit-pear/citrus, then piney. Taste is light/medium malt-toffee that gives way quickly to spicy/earthy hops, some fruit, some alcohol. Good effervescence. Occasional.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, bought @ Irma, Industriens Hus, Cph.
Pours hazy golden amber with a fine, staying, creamy, off-white head. Aroma is sweet, lots of malts, some toffee and good flowery hops. Medium carbonation, fine, lightly dry mouthfeel. Flavour is wonderful. Lots of toffee, a bit of burnt caramel, good, dryish flowery bitterness. A touch of metal perhaps, but the beer is maybe just served a tad too cold. Long, lingering aftertaste with a heacy hops presence. This is really enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Red amber with a nice, golden head, that leaves a nice lace. The aroma is fruity, hoppy and malty and the mouthfeel is smooth. The flavour is big with a lot of notes: roasted malt, toffee, some licorice, fermented apple, other fruits, hops, sweetness, a hint of port wine and a nice bitterness in the long and slightly burnt finish. Nice.

A malt aroma, and the hops aren’t that noticeable. Hazy apricot color, little head. Begins with llight malt, finishes with a bit of citrus and pine. Nearly chewy. Light carbonation. Really, really smooth feel. Finishes with a hint of citrus and toasty malt. Could drink this all day.
