COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Vi spurgte vores strømlinede marketingsdirektør om, hvilken øl der kunne illustrere dødssynden Grådighed. Efter blot et enkelt sekunds betænkningstid svarede han: ”Hvorfor gør vi ikke bare det samme som alle de store aktører i branchen: vi brygger en røvbillig øl og sælger den til en premium pris. Det er sgu’ da grådighed. ” Vores marketingsdirektør er en klog mand, så naturligvis gjorde vi, som han sagde. Og vi satte endda et billede af ham på etiketten. Øllen endte så faktisk ret ok. Det er en helt regulær sydtysk pilsner uden så meget pjat. Håber I kan li’ den – det ku’ vi.
Vi er ikke stolte over at være syndere, men i det mindste er vi åbne omkring det...

English: We asked our smartass marketing director what beer would be a good choice for the sin of Greed. He only pondered for a sec and then said: “We should simply do as all the big players do: make a cheapass beer and sell it at a premium prize – that’s greed for you alright”. Our marketing director is a smart guy, so of course we did what he said. We even put a picture of him on the label. The beer however turned out pretty badass. It’s a straight up German Pilsener without any fuss. Dig it – we do.
We’re not proud to be sinners, but at least we’re open about it…

Brewed from pilsener malts, Tettnanger and Hallertau Mittelfrüh hops and a Southern German lager yeast.

In short: a pretty decent lager.
Pours hazy hay colour, with some nice white head. Short head retention, poor lacing. Citrusy aromas. Light body, high carbonation, crispy texture. Taste follows the nose. Quite nice lager, but i was expecting more from a member of this awesome series.Somehow dissapointing.

TAR (2441) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Faded golden with slight haze. Thick and lathery white foam exhibits stellar retention. Lemony, herbaceous and flowery hops comprise the elegant aroma along with dusty yeast, butter cookies, melon, new mown hay and baguette. Distant whiff of nectarine and flower nectar. Soft, fine-bubbled carbonation. Pillow-soft maltiness caresses the tongue and fills the mouth with fresh baguette, bouncy hay and cracker dough. Flowery hops deposit ample nectar alongside a burst of refined oils for added depth and allure. Graceful pils malt soon takes on a delectable lemon cake sweetness. Hop bitterness is quite subdued, but the abundance of elegant hop flavor compensates nicely. Clean and characterful yeast coarsens the remarkably soft body as does a twinge of minerals. Pervasive but nonintrusive yeast also adds ample muscle to the already sturdy pils malt foundation. Closes softly lemony and complexly malty with cakelike flavors dabbed with a delicate butter cookie sweetness and lingering nectar. Well isn’t this a lovely little number! I guess they were going for a pils, but this screams kellerbier all the way down the gullet. And a very authentic one. Certainly softer than the Franconian examples, so I guess it could be more mouthwateringly minerally. Would love to see the bitterness ramped up few notches, but it’s quite clean and quaffable, features an exquisite hoppiness and luscious malt, and the bottle-conditioning, which has been masterfully executed, serves as a huge bonus. Delightful.

A fine beer with a decent character. Easy to drink. Good smell of bread or cereal. Hazy, yellow. White head. Lightly bitter. Light to medium body.

Fine beer but nothing special. But fully live up to the text at the label. Expensive but quite ordinary.

this is a pretty ordinary beer. Maybe a little bit expensive compared to the quality of the beer

It is indeed greed to charge 59dkk for this beer. It's a decent pilsner with slightly fresh citrusy hops and a touch of basement. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

wlajwl (3765) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Aroma is light citrus, pale malts, German lager yeast and grassy hops. The flavor is pale malts, light citrus/fruit, mild hops and a dry/mildly bitter finish.

Mieto tuoksu, hieman hapan maku. Raikas, mutta hieman turhan suoraviivainen olut.

Svesse (6044) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 29, 2014
(Bottle) Golden colour with lasting white head, leaving traces of lacing. Malty nose with notes of crisp-bread, citrus, peaches, hints of tropical fruit and fresh grassy, herbal hops. Malty, hoppy taste with bread, hay, citrus and a fresh, generous, grassy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, quite dry. Solid and well made German style pilsener, with a fresh hop presence. They could easily make this a permanent offering as their "standard" lager. Nice one.
