COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gouden Carolus Cuvée van de Keizer Rood is a strong blond beer that was launched in 2008 on the occasion of "10 years Gouden Carolus Cuvée van de Keizer Blauw". However, it contains more types of malt and 3 different kinds of herbs are added during the brewing process. Its bright golden color, high alcohol percentage and full and well-balanced taste make this ale a genuine source of vitality and power which will please even the most critical connoisseur. For ideal savoring, gently pour out in one fluent movement, at a temperature of 7-8° C (45-46°F). Proudly poured it is savored with respect. Those who like a refreshing, heavy and somewhat spicy beer, choose this blonde ale.

Århus2008. 75 cL bottle. Pours clear yellow and golden with a huge white head. Light fruity and yeasty aroma, solid to dense. Solid caramel malt flavour, spiced and yeasty. Classic Belgian and powerful. Ends solid spiced and alcohol warming. Quite flavourful. Apparently the Easter brew slightly modified - nice one!

Ungstrup (36929) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2008
Bottled. A golden beer with an off-white head. The arom is sweet malty with primary notes of alcohol, but also light notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of both malt and alcohol. I think a couple of years in the cellar will do it good.

oh6gdx (26447) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 25, 2008
Bottled@EBF2008. Yellowish golden colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is fruits, alcohol, some nectar and yeast along with some mild toffeeishness. Flavour is quite much the same. A nice and balanced brew, which shows alcohol only as a slight burning note when swallowing.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2008
(Bottle 75 cl) Almost clear golden with a dense white head leaving laces. Sweetish - and somewhat spicy - perfumy aroma. Quite full-bodied with sweetish malt and fruit. Has an odd unclean edge and a herbal and alcoholic finish. Still a very decent beer though. 050908

Hazy gold beer. Sweet malt on the nose, trace of banana ester. Light dry palate, airy. Strong sweet malt with repressed esters. Finishes dry with minerals and spice and warming alcohol. Better than the blue but that ain’t much of a recommendation.
