, Kolding. Pours clear deep chestnut with a medium, creamy, off-white head. Aroma has nice sweet malts, caramel, floral hops, light apple. Medium carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has sweet malts, caramel, a bit of licorice, herbal and floral hops. A bit too sweet for its own good, but nicely warming in the end.

bottle. trade with papsoe.
clear brown amber, loarge smooth light brown to beige head.
Aroma is pretty strange (not bad) flowers, honey, syrup, caramel, herbs and spcies that adjust the flowery note with something sort of citrussy or limey. a very full and solid aroma, although not powerfull (english beer after al) .
flavor is nutty bitter, caramel, flowers, honey. a rather bitter flavor, with subltle notes of sweetness, caramel, herbs, flowers. bitterness manages to round it up just shy of being cloying. okay beer.
