En bock øl der smager af jul. Altså dvs. at ikke så skarp som de klassiske tyske bock, faktisk rigtig god, ikke mindst til prisen PLundsgaard (493) - Tranbjerg J, DENMARK - APR 21, 2016

Copenhagen 9/1 2016. 33 cl bottle from Meny. Reindeer tip toeing around in the snow on the label. Pours clear yellow with big white head. Settles as thin layer of foam. Moderate lacing. Aroma is sugary sweet malts, metallic alcohol and sweaty sourness. Medium carbonation and slightly thick palate. Like many Danish strong beers pretty sweet and packed with alcohol. First impression is cloying sweetness and the aftertaste is boozy and a bit spiced. I don't think the reindeers would appreciate putting their good name at stake as namesake for this brew.

Bottle at home. Pours a golden light amber with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of pale malt, dry hay, grass, sweet corn, alcohol, plastic bag and some metal. The flavor has more grassy hops, alcohol and dry hay and sweet corn in the aftertaste. Has a soft and slick mouth feel, medium body and a light to medium bitterness. A relatively clean heller bock but there are some off-flavors. Cunningham (8412) - Halden, NORWAY - FEB 14, 2015

I had quite a lot danish beers in the last months and was often dissaponted. Here, on paper, a strang lager with an alcohol percentage of nearly 8% awaits me. Should be a nice winter beer… But the body is surprisingly light. The aroma is malty, a subltle hop bitterness comes along a stickt sweet plum side. The finish is peppery bitter. Well, again not the beer I thought, maybe better than some of the others I had, Danish mid range though.
It’s the first organic brew in my new rating list. So it’s the best one! And the worst…. But seriously, this beer is again one of these needless beers that would dissaper in no time in a beer country like Belgium or the US.
