COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Kast mørket af dig, slip gækken løs og byd lyset velkommen! Så enkelt kan budskabet i vores forårs-IPA ”Kåååd” opsummeres. Ikke mange ved dette, men en hel generation af Kobe-kvæg opfodres et hemmeligt sted på Amager med den mask, der bliver til overs fra vores ølproduktion. Da disse - verdens lykkeligste køer - åd masken fra lige netop denne øl, brød de ud i et jubel-muuh så højt, at det kunne høres helt inde på Rådhuspladsen. Køernes efterfølgende forårskåde bukkespring kom op i en højde så stor, at de lykkelige køer forcerede enhver indhegning og fortsatte dybt ind på Kalvebod Fælled. Siden har ingen set dem. Og hvad de laver derinde, kan vi kun gisne om... Men akkurat som Amagers hemmelige – og lykkelige - Kobe-kvæg, vil du kære livsnyder med garanti, bryde ud i spontan forårskååådhed, når du indsniffer den vederkvægende duft af frisk aromahumle, som Kåååd er pakket med. Tillykke med foråret – og gør nu ikke noget, som vi ikke ville have gjort...

English: Throw off the darkness, make merry and bid the light welcome! That is the simple message in our Spring IPA "Kåååd" (Frisky). Not many people know this, but there is a whole herd of beef cattle being raised in a secret Amager location on the spent grain from our beer production. This cattle herd, surely the happiest in the world, had barely tasted the grain from this very beer, before they let out a celebratory MUUH so loud that it could be heard all the way to downtown Copenhagen. The ensuing merriment in the herd caused a Stampede greater than any seen in Calgary in July. But one thing is for sure: If you, dear hophead, partake of this brew, you will become as frisky as our happy heifers as soon as you catch a whiff of the aromatic hops that we have jam-packed into "Kåååd". Have a merry old spring - and don’t do anything we, or the happy cattle, wouldn’t do...

Ingredienser: Vand, Malte: Pilsner-, Münchener-, Cara Pils og Melanoidin malt. Humler: Herkules, Tomahawk, Summit, Chinook, Simcoe, Centennial, Amarillo og Cascade. Gær: en amerikansk overgær.

lobs_ols (322) - LATVIA - MAY 1, 2015
Semi-opaque amber, medium white head. Fruity, malty aroma. Medium body, balanced bitterness. Finishes bitter but good. Overall nice, but batch 1000 takes the cake.

mcberko (8529) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 27, 2015
On tap at Henrik Øl og Vinstove, pours a clear copper with a small off-white head. Nose brings out piney hops and crackery malt. Flavour is quite dry, with crackery malt and astringent piney hops. Quite dry and astringent. It’s pretty solid but I don’t get why this has such high ratings.

Rob_D_UK (1186) - Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2015
A murky dark copper pour with a white head. Very very strong hop aroma. Upfront bitterness that is lasting and then peaks again in the finish.

villevav (301) - FINLAND - APR 23, 2015
[2015-04-17, Rooster, Oulu] Hieman samea, kullankeltainen, ohut vaalea vaahtofilmi. Tuoksussa sitrusta, märkää nahkatakkia ja tukena humalan katkeroa. Keskiasteinen hiilihappoisuus. Kokonaisuutena jotenkin yksiulotteinen: katkeroa löytyy, mutta humalan aromia voisi olla enemmänkin.

Draught. Only slightly cloudy, amber color. Lacy, creamy head. Nice hop aroma has sweet papaya, honeyish flowers, a hint of ripe strawberries. Minor resin notes too. Dryish, caramelly-round taste, mellow but chalky/resinous bite in the finish. Medium body, smooth texture.
