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.

w_adwersarz (271) - Cracow, POLAND - MAR 11, 2015
Barwa złocista, zamglona, odrobinkę pracuje. Piana ładna, drobno i średniobąbelkowa, w miarę zwarta, dość długo się utrzymuje i ładnie krążkuje na szkle. Aromat powala, rodzynki, cytrusy, ziołowe, trawiaste, trochę białych owoców. Do tego słody, ciasteczkowe, lekko opiekane, troszkę karmelu. W smaku jest cytrusowo, taka gorzka skórka z pomarańczy i grejpfruta, ziołowe i trawiaste klimaty. Słodów jest raczej mało, odrobinę ciasteczkowo. Piwo jest wytrawne, dość gładko wchodzące, z wysyceniem średnim w strone wysokiego. Goryczka jest intensywna, dość długa ale komu by to przeszkadzało, z wyraźnym iglastym finiszem.

King_Alex_II (297) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 16, 2015
Golden color with moderate foam. Flowery hoppy bitter smell. The taste is mainly painful in the aftertaste. Bitterness on the first sip, a whole lot of why-did-i-drank-that on the second. Probably infected (or a really weird choice by the brewers).

SinH4 (553) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 16, 2015
On tap at Erzbierschof. Nice deep oange color with big white head. Citrus fruits, marmalade, pines. Taste is heavily bitter, lots of bitter oranges, and a slightly metallic finish. The aftertaste is hard... Still fine, but on the very bitter side.

BlazerT (132) - POLAND - FEB 12, 2015
Bottle. Orange, little hazy with medium white head. Low lacing, medium lasting. The aroma is mainly piney, resin with quite noticable malty profile (biscuits, crackers). Taste is bitter orange peel, bitterness is medium, also some piney and floral flavours. Medium body, medium carbonation, finish is dry and hoppy. Overall solid IPA - not so bitter and well balanced. Quite good drinkable.
