Carlsberg’s Jacobsen Vintage 2 bills itself as “one of the world’s most expensive beers” and it’s hard to argue as the beer costs 2009 Kroner – or roughly A$422 depending on the day’s exchange rate – per stubby-sized bottle. But is it any good?
There has been much said about this beer in anticipation of its release. It has inspired passionate debate amongst beer geeks and home brewers as to the potential of a Crown variant at $50-60 a bottle. As always the proof of any beer is in the final experience that it delivers and it should be approached without prejudice.
