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.

PalCabral (123) - - APR 12, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours hazy with a frothy wheat induced head. The head is okey but the beer itself looks pale blonde hazy. Most homebrewers would store the beer a little to make it somewhat more see thorugh but Amager doesn’t care. Minus points from me. The aroma is delicious, citrus and malt combining beautifully. A throrough thirst enhancer. But the taste is such a let down. The malt moves second and some citric hop gets to dominate. All the complecity in the build up lost to a one dimensional taste. It’s not a bad beer, but just so lost in taste, so one directional.

A pleasing pilsner. Pretty classic when cold, but it opens up quite a bit as it warms, with notes of cream, strawberry, and biscuit appearing.

Swaroga (1441) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 11, 2014
Butelka 50cl. OCZY : piwo jest mętne o jasnym, słomkowym kolorze. Piana piwa jest niewielka i śnieżnobiała. Średnio trwała. NOS : bez wstrząsania piwo ma delikatne aromaty chleba, skórki cytryny i zielonej herbaty. Po wstrząśnięciu wydobywam świeże aromaty nasion i cytrusów a nawet mango i marakui. USTA : piwo jest średnio gazowane, bardzo przyjemnie puszyste i miękkie w ustach o wodnistej konsystencji. Wytrawne i cierpkie o nutach skórki cytrusowej i niedojrzałych nasion. Gorycz średnio intensywna, prawie tak samo intensywna co cierpkość. Posmak piwa jest wciąż cierpki i gorzki, wyczuwam coraz bardziej metal, którego posmak jest całkiem trwały. ODCZUCIA : rozbawiła mnie etykietka i historia tego piwa. O wiele ciekawszy marketing niż przykry BrewDog. Piwo jest średnie ale orzeźwiające i robi robotę. Trochę za bardzo cierpkie bo po kilku łykach zaczyna dominować i przytłaczać całą resztę. OCENA : smak : 4/10 pijalność : 7/10 styl : 0

esp0r (2088) - NORWAY - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle from Meny Oslo City enjoyed at home
Orange, super hazy, big white frothy head. Smell of spice, grass, hay, pepper and malts. Moderate sweet, spicy, hints of fruits, herbs, grass, quite tasty. Ends with a moderate to medium bitter finish which is grassy and herbal. Quite good stuff. Far away from the premium priced pilsners from the big players :)

Bottle at home. Unclear yellow pour, thin white head. Aroma of soapy hops, tropical fruits, some wet dog. Flavor is quite bitter, fruity and a bit meaty. Strange brew.
