BE CAREFUL when you pour this beer into your glass. I handled it as a normally do to my beers, but the difference was that my glass was filled with pure foam, when I has poured the beer into it. When I succeeded in poring the beer it was a halfway opague light golden beer, with of course, a high, dense head. The aroma is very indistinct and can’t really pervade the head. However, there is some yeast and sourishness. It is a very aromatic flavor with a good balance between sweetness and sourishness, and a good bite from the hops in the aftertaste. Makes me think of champagne. The body is neither thin nor fat, but it is a nice beer in general.

Bottle. Nice golden colour, an ok lasting head, sweet flavour, some what citric flavour with a little sweetness to it. Called an abbey brew but far from it indeed!

Stefano (1852) - Esbjerg, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2006
Golden color with a white head.Light fruity aroma with green apples and hops. Thin body and fruity-bitter finish. Boring.

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2006
White head on a golden body. The taste is there, but it’s pretty weak compared to what I expected. But a good try, keep on trying Aarhus bryghus!

fonefan (33333) - VestJylland, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2006
Bottle. Pours golden with a white head. Both aroma and flavour are hoppy, but with a distinct sour feeling to it.

MiP (13047) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2006
Bottle. Weak aroma, slightly citric. Cloudy golden colour, small white head. Citric flavour, medium bitterness. Refreshing, but a bit boring.

turbothy (1055) - Bonn, GERMANY - AUG 6, 2006
Pours with an extreme amount of foam, requiring ½ hour to pour into a pint glass. When the foam subsides, a coat of brown sludge is left on top, making a rather disgusting first impression. The taste is bland but with an unpleasant earthy aftertaste. One for the sink.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2006
Bottle@Københavnske Øldage. Quite dry, with pretty much zero flavour. The good ting is that it is innofensive, which is also to its detriment. Just like a stronger pale lager or something.

cphbeerking (154) - København K, DENMARK - JUN 28, 2006
A faintly hazy pilsner-golden greets the drinker, but alas, little else is forthcoming. Aroma is faint, taste likewise. What little there is spells weak citrus and flat hop taste. Naming this beer ’Klosterbryg’, abbey ale, also seems misleading -- at least it got me thinking about Belgians. An uneventful beer.

chriso (7344) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2006
Draught at Cockney Pub, Aarhus, August 2005. The very first brew from this new brewery, so I can make some allowances if things are not quite right. From the name and the colour (gold/amber), I was expecting something aiming at an Abbey tripel style but it certainly wasn’t that. And I’m not sure why it is on the site as a pale lager because I don’t think its that either. To be honest it was a bit difficult to tell because there was an unfortunate whiff of diacetyl on the nose and whatever other elements were in the aroma weren’t strong enough to break through. And whilst there was a little citrus and yeast on the palate, it wasn’t really full flavoured enough to get much of a handle on the flavour either. Not to say it was unpleasant, just not very distinctive. More work needed.
