330 ml brown bottle from a 5 bottle variety pack. Pours out a slightly hazed caramel amber, loose-bubbled creamy beige head that settles within a minute.

Bready malt with slight note of toffee on the nose, light grassy and spicy hops.

Mild biscuit and sweet caramel malt up front in the flavour, sharp herbal and spicy hops on the finish. A little bit of woody char in the aftertaste, perhaps that's the indication of smoked.

Medium-light mouthfeel, thin slippery texture, low carbonation.

A bit of an awkward beer, I'd say it's an English Bitter more than anything, with a bit of wood to it. Even still a bit loose around the edges, could benefit from having the flavour profile tightened up a bit to provide a more enjoyable balance.

More cutesy Danish minimalism on the label.

This beer pours a cloudy orange-amber colour, with a fair amount of pervasive suspended sediment, and one finger of soapy pale beige head, which settles to a thin cap, leaving little in the way of lace. It smells of crisp cereal grain - a bit of spicy rye tossed in for good measure, and earthy, dirty hops. The taste is sweet, biscuity grain, some orchard fruit sourness, and earthy hops. The carbonation is moderate, the body medium light in weight, and somewhat smooth. It finishes mostly dry, the biscuity graininess predominating.

I don't know where BA or RB got the idea that this is a smoked beer - from the name only, I presumed this was named after someone, someone Danish. More of an English Bitter, if anything.

Pours foamy lagerish glass, with translucent character of appearance and a tad of grey. Slightly smokey nose, not too impressive yet. Easy drinking, a little creamy mouthfeel, above average carbonation. Tasty understated smoke, good drinkability.Better than expected thanks Presario.

330mlbottle poured into tulip aug22 2010

A hazy glowing red with a lighter orange edge, no real head or lace

S some honey and caramel apple but the apples sour

T some sour apple and a little yeast with some sweet malt on top of what I could smell,

M some body to it but just fizzes out in your mouth

D I finished this one with no problem but don't see myself drinking to many of these in the future

not sure where the smoke is if there's any at all, I got the beer type from another site cause I couldn't read anything on the bottle, nothing offensive but nothing worth looking for
