Got this 50cl bottle on a trip to Kobenhavn.

Pours an amber to light caramel brown color with a bit of cloudiness. 2 finger foamy head comes to a 1/2 finger constant whitish head.

Smells of light fruits, light hops, some earth notes, but nothing overpowering. Yeast notes are present.

Taste isn't anything overpowering really. Yeasty, slightly fruity and earthy and a slight hops twinge. Malts come through more here than in the aroma.

Carbonation is light-medium bubbles that stick with the beer through most of its life as it goes down. Not very full and relatively smooth so goes down pretty easy.

This is relatively easy to drink and goes down well, and you really can't detect the 5.7%, but there isn't really anything remarkable to make me come back to this anytime soon.

700 ml bottle, unfiltered. ABV was 5.8%. Copper coloured, slightly hazy, good head. Moderate malty aroma with caramel and spices, hints of fruits. Flavour is malty, caramel, nuts and spices with a substantial hoppy bitterness. Moderate bitterness in the aftertaste. In a blind test I’d probably guess this was an English strong bitter / strong ale. Not bad.

The colour is amber, the liquid is a little bit cloudy. The gigantic foam slowly sinks down to a finger thick airy off white head.

The smell is fruity with a discreet roasted note. Lots of aroma hops, earthy notes of nuts and apricots.

The taste is quite mild. Lightly roasted malt, fruity hops, earthy notes of nuts, gravy and grapefruits are preset. The (quite short) aftertaste got some bitterness, but notes of dried fruits (apples, apricots, raisins) dominate.

The carbonation is mild with small refreshing bubbles.

More of an American micro lager than an European one.

A bit on the sour side, although it starts to wear off.
