- Nice sweet and malty. Delicious.
- [February, 2013] During my holidays in Denmark I emptied a bottle that I bought for 18 Euro in January, 2013.In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this 82,5. My notes state "underaged stuff, nothing special about it"...
- Powerful and at the same time soft and honeyed, it is warm. Some fruits pass quickly and then leave, giving way to caramel in a saline atmosphere. Pretty cool. In the mouth, disappointment: it's flat, bitter tannins. There is still some toffee. Final dry and short.
- Tasted on sample.
Not very complex, it is rather marked by smells of gas which however fail to hide a fruity background, spicy (vanilla), honeyed, also dotted with plant aromas (flowers) and sea salt and lemon water.
The lack of power is quickly obvious but the whole remains correct. The themes of the nose are (a little) developed (gas, fruit, spices) with more emphasis on the vegetal side; a little white wine too.
In my opinion the most beautiful part, become richer, warmer, with a bitterness strongly salty and some ashy notes.
- Very soft Malt,
many natural aromas of vanilla and
light citrus herein have the upper hand.
