3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
50 cl bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika. Pours amber with a small long lasing white head. Aroma of orange, citrus and hops. Quite thin but with a good balance of bitterness and sweetness. Ok beer on a hot day.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours orangey golden with a little off white head. Diffuse malty aroma. But the taste is all fresh malt, with some good cereal and biscuit notes, with some floral overtones and maybe a bit of herbaceousness from the hops. I kind of agree with the brewery’s description- this is not an extreme beer by any means, just good raw ingredients, nice and drinkable. I like this style - it makes a nice break from hopmonsters.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Sample at Amager Bryghus, thanks!) Pours a clear golden with little, off-white head. Good retention and lace. Aroma is wheaty/grainy with barnyard notes. Oily texture, medium body with soft carbonation and a slightly tart finish. Taste is malty with tart and straw notes. Not really my style.

Hazy gold - amber beer. Neutral to slightly soft palate. Aromatic malt with butter and caramel. A little fruity hop coming through. Minerally crisp and semi dry finish. Hangs together reasonably well.

Hazy orange with a white medium sized head. Flavor was ok hoppy. The beer was drunk on the date which is believed to be a little too late as it had lost some flavor.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle.
Pours a dark orange colour with a large white head. Aroma of very sweet fruits, some floral hops and cardboard. Flavour of floral hops, sweet fruits, some mild caramel malts and some weak spices. Quite rough carbonation with a bitter, fruity finish. Not the best Golden Ale out there as this isn’t at it’s best anymore.
