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 íKlosterbrygí, 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 wasnít that. And Iím not sure why it is on the site as a pale lager because I donít 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 werenít strong enough to break through. And whilst there was a little citrus and yeast on the palate, it wasnít 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 KÝbenhavnske ōldage 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.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Hmm Iím very confused. I know Iím new - well maybe thatís why :-)
Iím not sute what to say - very strange beer. Sour - citrus - hops - is it me or did I detect a bit of smoke - Iím not sure cos it also tastes a bit cemical. I will maybe reírate this beer when I taste it again.

Bottle. White lasting head. Unclear light yellow colour (reminds me of one of the human beingís bodily fluids, uf). Smoky malt aroma. Smoky flavor as well.

0.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
A very bad beer. It might have been infected, this is the first beer I have refused to complete drinking. Sorry.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 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, bordering vinegar. Makes me think of white wine or sekt. Donít know if itís supposed to be like this or if itís a bad bottle. Itís drinkable though, and at 40 dkk a bottle Iím rating this if itís bad or not. Not much of an IPA, though. 15-01-06.
