2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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!

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours golden with a white head. Both aroma and flavour are hoppy, but with a distinct sour feeling to it.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Weak aroma, slightly citric. Cloudy golden colour, small white head. Citric flavour, medium bitterness. Refreshing, but a bit boring.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. The body is a golden-yellow with a small head. The aroma is sweet and malty with grainy flower notes. Flavour is much of the same - average graininess, flowers, perfume. Passable, if anything.
Sampled at the Københavnske Øldage 2006 on May 20, 2006.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden with a medium lasting white head. Aroma has a little flower and some malt. Flavour is also malt dominated and quite thing. Nothing special.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden, fine bibbles, lowish head. Bready and light citric aromatic hop aroma. Surprisingly light body, a hint napkin. Nice subtle aromatic hop profile. Fresh english style IPA, bit light on the palate though - maybe a hint more butterscotch would give it the chewyness I am missing.
