1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
In short: A well malted golden ale with a disturbing rotting “stuff” character
How: Bottle 500ml. Consumed a few days after receiving it through private importation but it was already close to expiration date
The look: Slightly cloudy dark blonde body topped by a very small white head
In long: Taste of wet toasted bread, old citrus fruits, decomposing flowers, wet graham cookies, old dishcloth, moist. An overall sensation of wet/decaying organic stuff. The beer was still before expiration date but it felt like it was two years past due-date. Pretty bad. Drain poor. And expensive too (at least over here), this is my worst investment idea since my 2004 GM’s gonna bounce back investment strategy.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
My Bottom Line:
This approachable Golden Ale exhibits deep cereal notes alongside a citrus and mango-like hop fruitiness that eases into levelled earthy bitterness.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam skirts the cloudy orange-golden.
-The mouthfeel is cushy, smoothly carbonated and drinkable, but the flavor profile could be brighter.
-In the end, a light vegetal character rises.
-I guess the recipe is just not as compelling as most Amager beers I’ve had so far.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, from trade with Papsoe. It’s a hazy, slightly pale golden beer with some microfloaties and a white head. Some sourish notes on the nose, with fruits and lemon, hops and a little chalky touch. Fruity and malty-sweet with some grains, and piney hops giving a fine bitterness. Full-bodied. Long, piney, bitter finish. I suspect there’s something wrong with the bottle, as there were some sourish and chalky notes in the aroma. At least it wasn’t past BB-date. A very refreshing beer, not a big one, but a fine thirst quencher. (090213)

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
A golden ale with a fine head. The aroma is malty with notes of citrus and yeast. The same goes for the flavour, but it’s really not that interesting. A little too plain...

Bottle courtesy of papsoe. Pours gold with a nice white head. Smells of toasted malt, some light sweet citrus, wildflowers, dough. Tastes lightly bitter with a nice touch of caramel, some hints of biscuits. Some straw on the finish. Very enjoyable.
