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.

KimJohansen (10349) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2012 Clear golden with a medium white head. Aroma was nicely packed with grassy hops, flowers and a few hints of german malt. Flavor had a lovely authentic german pilsener taste with german hops and a breadish taste. Grassy and crisp. Dry and bitter. Very authentic. Any ratings of this based on a less than a 50 cl wont do it justice. Masterpiece!

77ships (3313) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 30, 2013
Sampled draft @ Borefts 2013. Pale golden with a white head. Nose is grassy & floral hops, hay, touch barn & some yeast. Taste is bitter, crisp with some grass hops, floral bitter, hay, slightly bigger malt than expected, very drying. Nice & crisp, no idea how traditional this is but I found this to be a very nice pilsner.

MartinT (7523) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 4, 2014
My Bottom Line:
This very authentic German-style lager shares cracking hay and herbal hop spiciness for a highly refreshing pint.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam sits atop the misty straw blond.
-Carbonation is appropriately prickly yet soft.
-Malts and hops are both expressed clearly.
-A floral character is found throughout, but more of the dandelion or sunflower variety (not the usual rose-like geraniol connotations).
-Drinkability is obviously quite high (if you like noble hops, that is).
-The flavor profile is also well balanced.
-The finish is perhaps a tad more bitter than the average German Pils.

Bottle.

Batch 561, bb 1.2014
Cloudy blond color with medium sized compact head. Nice aroma, although rubbery in the beginning, it shows some crispy cereal, and strong grassy notes. Light and smooth mouthfeel, with a crispy and clean malt profile, good contribution of cereals; very good hopping, both strong and aromatic, evidence of noble hops, with straws and grass.
Excellent beer, delivering fresh sensations.

Smell very pilsner malt. Very special beer with a sweet taste and citrus. Long aftertaste. But this is one of the better beer I drank. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Ernest (6031) - 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!

canary dog (649) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - APR 3, 2014
This beer is intriguing. Light and cloudy with a wispy foam head. Very light. The taste is light, but full of character somehow. Finish is lemony. This beer reminded me of a somewhat mixed concoction of German pilsner (about 3/4) and gose (about 1/4). A very drinkable and refreshing pils, in my best estimation. Greed is deceptively simple and, if you appreciate TRUE German style pils and keep an open mind, you will enjoy this half liter offering and discover it grows on you as you finish the glass. But it is, unfortunately, very expensive.

omhper (18966) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2013
Bottled, from Systembolaget. Cloudy pale golden, rocky head - looks delicious. Very distinct grassy hop aroma. Bone dry with clean, crisp mouthfeel. Plenty of salty, grassy hops, remarkably bitter finish. Pretty much very close to my ideal beer, however the lack of malt softness makes it a bit harsh and inky.
