I’m one of the suckers. Despite my hatred for the whole idea, I’ll be sharing a bottle... And like you, I hope it’ll be bad, just to allow me the funniest review I have ever written on RB... Compared to price it’ll be a disappointment no matter what it tastes like, but it’ll be fun if it’s really strange...

After this, the £24 I paid for my avatar at GBBF will seem like a steal...

Case closed.

Ok, ya, right. Then when a beer in the future goes for $401 and is better...right...?

Price=quality and there are no known exceptions to this.
In fact, I find that more expensive bottles of any beer taste better than when the same beer is sold at cheaper prices.

What I can’t believe is if they are going for the wine crowd, why not make it in a 750ml? Given the ABV it could be more easily seen as a substitute. The size just baffles me. Oh well, I am having 02.02.02 next weekend which is about the same price online, lets see if its all hype.

Good for Carlsberg for taking this step.

Shame on you Carlsberg.

This whole thing is so stupid and annoying.

If it was for charity, great.
Was it a unique beer, say the worlds strongest or something like that, acceptabel.

But, this is no doubt (though I will never know) a mediocre beer from a shitty brewery created for one reason: attention

And attention is what is gets. All media in denmark has mentioned it and the head line of all is: Danish beer is the most expensive in the world.

Expensive for what? Expensive for being expensive.


p.s. I do hope the beer is great, cause I have friends that feel they must buy this beer and I’m sorry if they have to spend so much on a shitty product.

OK, now lets get back to that discussion about not rating less than pint samples......
