In a can! Pours very pale yellow, clear. Not a lot of head. Pretty strong, jammy, pineapple hops aroma. Has a very quick, soda-water-like finish. It’s not bad, but I wish there was a bit more to it.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Booths, Media City. Clear golden with a small head. Hoppy and fruity, and quite crisp drinking too, it’s not very ’lager’ at all, and certainly has a recognisably ’ale’ texture. There’s a smoothness about the beer too. What lager malts it has are to be found in its nose, and there’s a rawness about them.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Svag maltet smag, nem at drikke. Ikke det store sus men den kunne nu godt have smagt mere af malt.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a golden body with a small head. Aroma has fruity and lightly sweetish herbal hops but also some sweet vegetable-like off tastes. Thin fizzy mouthfeel. Taste has slightly more hop bitterness than your average pilsner but that alone doesn’t really save it - the malt base is thin and has a strange vegetabley off-taste. An unremarkable pilsner that is only modestly improved by dry hopping.
