Pernille (518) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2005
Exactly how a pilsner should taste. Mild and hoppy with a bit of malt. Slightly fruity - especially in the palate. Very refreshning.

Cloudy light orange colour with a low creamy foam. Fresh peppery and grassy aroma. Dry but a bit unclean flavour of grass, spices and pepper. Ends with dry aftertaste.

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 25, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2006 [Flakhaven] A unclear green-orange beer with a huge off-white head. The aroma is faint, but what is there is yeasty. The flavor is malty and rather yeast combined with notes of straw - leading to a dry sweet end. It seems that the yeast used is not the same as the other brewpubs in the chain - or maybe yeast is just fresh? unfortunately I didn’t have the posibility to talk the the brewer.

[Apollo] An unfilteret brewpub speciality that has a very beutiful head and some hoppy taste.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - APR 7, 2005
Draught at A Hereford Beefstouw across the square from the brewery. Malty and fruity aroma. Some nice hoppiness. Soft and pleasant.
Earlier Rating: 6/8/2002 Total Score: 3.9
Slightly darker than normal Danish pilseners with a good head. More complexity and different taste notes than in other pilseners. A good beer.

ThomasE (5176) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2005
Cloudy dark golden colour with foamy off white head. Malty aroma with some sweetness, hints of caramel. Flavor is mostly malty, again with a caramel sweetness, slightly bitter finish.

Gazza (726) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2004
Buttery, dry, fairly well balanced bitter beer, better than the Århus version. (Draught in Apollo, Kobenhavn)

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2004 Draught at Apollo Bryggeri, Copenhagen.
Unclear dark orange beer with a foamy off-white head. Malty, hoppy and Apollo-yeasty aroma. Sweet and creamy and very full for a pilsener. Flowers, pilsner malt and hops in the flavor. Flavorfull and full-bodied with a bitterdry finish. Nice!
