2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Vey refreshing IPA but the name "Klosterbryg" (abbey brew) seems a little misleading - it makes me think of Belgian beers. Pretty golden colour with a big but quickly disappearing head. Aroma is mostly acidic (lemon). Initial flavour is malty sweet but quickly the citrusy flavours takes over. Finish is not very bitter. A refreshing and unusual but not very interesting IPA.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. When Aarhus Bryghus were ready to send out their beers on the danish market, they had already sold out everything in stock (and just sold on a more general scale). It shouldn’t be seen as a sign of quality of their beers, but more due to a commercialized approach by the brewery, who took the offer from one of the (if not THE) largest retail grocery chains in Denmark. Maybe this beer just reflects the desire to make a quick buck, rather than brew something with integrity. So far, I haven’t been impressed with the beers, I’ve tasted from them (this is just the first one rated). Boring IPA, yet drinkable!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled: Golden coloured. Hazy. Fluffy beige head. Is light herbal, citric and sweet in the nose. Is highly carbonated. Flavour has cocoa notes, is light hoppy and herbal and has some flowery notes. Ends on a light bitterness. Is rather dry and crisp, but seems to me to lack some balance. Pretty one dimensional.

Bottle. Fine head with lacings. Sour flavor. Hazy and golden. Sharp, but nice aroma, but with a flavour that doesn’t meet the expectations.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Great fruity aroma. Flavor however is sour and with none of the bitterness that I expect from an IPA. What a disappointment.
