2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
0.6 bottle. Orange in color, completely clear with a small white head which dissipates quickly. Aroma is both malty and hop, fine sweetness and a delicate spruce scent together with some citrus. Light bitter taste, some citrus present alongside but very vague, most of all the flavor is dull. Medium body, creamy texture and soft carbonation. The only disappointing part of the palate is finish which in this case is short, tasteless and featureless. Overall the beer is bad, I am surprised they decided to call Pale Lager a Klosterbryg and grant it an IPA status. The only notable thing here is the palate which greatly surpasses all other pale lager palates I have experienced.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sample from bottle at Copenhagen Beer Festival. I can’t believe that Aarhus Bryghus wanted to embarrass themselves by calling this an "abbey beer in the India Pale Ale style". Seriously - this golden beer is not anything a true beer brewing monk would be proud of, and it is certainly not an IPA. Well, it is not horrible - just a boring pale lager with too little of everyhing.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is quite much bready malts, some grains, mild floral hops and some earthy notes. Flavour is quite bready malts as well as some grassy, floral hops and some mild herbal notes. OK, so I had expected to get something else than a Pale Lagerish beer claiming to be an IPA because of the name... I am still confused what exactly this beer is for real...
