33cl bottle. It poured an amber colour with a big creamy white head that settled down slowly in the glass. The aroma is malty with notes of grass and grains. The flavour is sweet and tastes of water and malts. A bit thin flavour to be honest. It has a short aftertaste.

On tap in Copenhagen! Mid amber with an artificial creamy white head. Soft palate, weak aroma and a little bit of malt in the flavour. What I was expecting but I simply had to have it having failed to get it in the Kilkenny in South Wimbledon!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
(33cl bottle) Clear, amber colour with a big and stable, slightly off-white foamy head. Slightly sweet and distinctively berry-fruity aroma with notes of malted barley, toffee and shy notes of hops. Light-sweet flavour, light bodied with an initially mild carbonation, that becomes a bit fizzy at the very end. Moderately fruity malty, minimal toasty taste with light notes of toffee. Bitterness and hop-character get stronger towards the finish while the fruitiness fades out more and more. Inoffensive and rather unspectacular brew (28.XI.08).
