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.

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 10, 2014
Bottle @tasting, pours clear orange, grass and hay on the nose also some stale urine which did it no favours. Taste wise its sweet and bitter, nicely balanced. Tasted a hell of a lot better than its smell.

Pale yellow decent enough head. Farty malt nose. Frustratingly carbonated, steely and quick finish.

Ernest (6160) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Bottle from Kihoskh, Copenhagen (BB Aug 2014). Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium yellow, unfiltered. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain/bread), lightly to moderately hoppy (herbs), lightly yeasty (sourdough), with light notes of sulfur, melon rind, kumquat. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. It’s odd that Amager doesn’t advertise this as a Kellerbier, because that is precisely what this is...Franconian lager is something I’ve been particularly saturated in this year, having spent over a month across two separate trips in that region (including just two weeks ago), and visited a couple of times in previous years as well. And this smells *identical* to the unfiltered lagers of that area...if it were poured in a random village south of Bamberg I wouldn’t remark on it being unusual in any way from the next...and best of all, it’s an unflawed example (which *is* notable even for Franconia)...no DMS, diacetyl, etc. Really well done and authentic. If they were really going for a "straight up pilsner" well...they failed in that, I suppose, but they got lucky in making a nicely textured, balanced, and aromatic Kellerbier. Bravo!

Hazy gold beer with a decent white head. Palate is crisp and dry. Minerals. Dry malt. Peppery spice. Little citrus and dry seltzer. Dry finish. Dull and dry. Really wants something more to bring it alive. I want something more - is that greedy?

daje (2043) - NORWAY - NOV 18, 2013
Bottle. Unclear golden body, white head. Malty aroma with piney hops and grass. Dry and crisp taste, malt and bittering hops, slightly fruity. Very clean taste, though a bit onedimensional. A pretty standard pilsner with a bit more hops added, like the label says.
