Draft at Sct. Clemens in Aarhus. Beers from this brewery never seems to surprise me. The yeast used is very noticealbe and not very good. But the beer look good though.

Draft at Sct Clemens. 2.1 Version. Creamy lightbrown good mostly lasting head. Brownamber colour. Very chesy/yeásty aroma like most Clemensbeers. Not very pleasent but it fades away while drinking. OK flavor, nice average bitter finish. Watery palate.

Theis (15150) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 13, 2006
Draught 25cl at Flakhaven in Odense. A beer startet as a conceptbeer (artprojekt) from the artgruop Superflex, who later made an Guarana softdrink. They try to save the world. Red/brown - light yellow head. Berries, malty, Spicy (guarana) bitter finish.

Hildigöltur (5105) - Křbenhavn, DENMARK - AUG 13, 2006
Draught at the brewpub. Hazy reddish brown coloured. Unpleasant aroma of sourish vegetables. Like bad Moskauergurken. Sweet and sour fruity flavour. Notes of peas.

Mads Langtved (2244) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - AUG 11, 2006
Horrible beer. Too sticky and chemical. Some hoppyness in the finish. A pretty bad experience. Could’nt finish my small one.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2006
(On tap) Basically clear, orangey brown with a nice and creamy, beige head. Slightly sweet and unclean aroma of malt and mash. Medium body with notes of roasted malt - perhaps even lightly burned. Unpleasant finish with the alcohol and the raw bittering hops fighting to be the least unpleasant. Not a good month for Apollo. 090806

(On tap) Unclear orangey brown with a creamy, beige head. Malty aroma. Notes of caramel in the flavour. Hard to sense any guarana here. Dry finish. 291005
Earlier Rating: 10/6/2005 Total Score: 3.1
(On tap) Cloudy, dark orangey brown with a fine, creamy, beige head leaving some laces. Malty, lightly sweet caramel aroma. A somewhat indefinable but enticing spiciness - must be the guaraná. Nice malty body and notes of caramel. Rounded by the usual short, dry Apollo-bitterness. 041005

Ungstrup (34364) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2006
This is a development from Skands Free Beer 3.0, which is a development from Apollo Free Beer 2.0. A hazy brownish amber beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of caramel, as well as notes of yeast, brewmash, chocolate, and some spices, I guess that it is the added Guarana, that gives it these notes. The flavor is sweet and very spicy, but also with notes of chocolate, herbs, and nuts, again it must be from the Guarana. The end is dry with a slight roasted note. A quite interesting beer.

A hazy red beer with a huge dense orange head. The aroma is sweet with notes of berries - and Apollo yeast. The flavor is sweet and very carbonated with notes of berries, Apollo yeast, and a dry toffeeish finish.

joergen (25926) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 1, 2005
Draft at the brewpub. Clear red coloured with a creamy off white head. Sweet aroma of malts and fruits. Flavour of malts and fruits with notes of anise.

On the sweet side and lacks body and power. Guarana is not really present.
