ThomasE (5174) - 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) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - 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!

rauchbier (3655) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2004
Tap, at the brewpub May 2004. Hazy gold colour, moderate white head and gentle condition. Served very cold, so little aroma to speak of but some hoppiness developed with time. Yeast and sweet malt in the mouth with pleasant grassy hop notes, and a sweet yeasty finish.

fiulijn (16395) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 14, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2008 2008-02-18, draught at Sct. Clemens brewpub in Århus, 7-4-7-3-14=35
Hazy copper color. The aroma shows a very nice crispy malt and let’s hope for something great; indeed the flavor is not bad (maybe it takes some time to get a rounder mouthfeel), but not exceptional. The thing that disappoints me a bit is the bitterness: quite harsh (too long hop infusion?). Pleasant.

2003-05-14, draught at Copenhagen beerfestival as Sct. Clemens Pilsner, 7-4-5-3-13=32
Golden color, hazy. Nice aroma; some malt and hop, fruity. Too dry taste, not enough malt nor hop. Ordinary palate. Less interesting than the Apollo.

2003-01-07, draught at the Apollo brewpub, 8-5-8-5-16=42
Rather dry taste, with an impressive hop character, not too bitter, but a lot aromatic, and a bit fruity. Compared to <a href=’http://www.ratebeer.com/ShowBeer.asp?BeerID= Dunkles it’s more aggressive and the body weaker, compared to <a href=’http://www.ratebeer.com/ShowBeer.asp?BeerID= Italiano Tipopils it has more malt and less hop, fruiter and less herbal. Maybe too much aggressive with the high carbonation, and still a bit metallic; with less carbonation, it’s sweeter than the Tipopils and the malt is more evidentiated.
When warmer, the score may even be 10/5/9/5/18!

2002-07-14, draught at the Apollo brewpub, 9-5-8-5-16=43
Gold color, thick and generous head. Wonderful and deep hop aroma. Very good mix of malt and hop, good body, rather dry. Good hop palate, well aromatic, medium-long, with a residual sweetness/smoothness.
A surprisingly good pilsner.

madsberg (10684) - Søborg, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2003 Light amber coloured. Huge head. Aroma is very malty. Is very smooth and malty in the flavour. Notes of bread. Light bitter in the aftertaste.

omhper (20929) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 9, 2002
Rddish golden appearance. Sweet murky malty aroma. Firm malt character, some drystal malt character. Some bitterness and pleasant hop aromatic finish. Like a pleasant cross between a Franconian kellerbier and a Danish lager.

Mads Langtved (2244) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2002
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2004 More lige a German pilsener style. You, can taste a lot more power and body than the normal Danish discount pilseners. Very good og cheerful!

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 21, 2001
I wasn’t really a fan of it, perhaps a bit light on in flavour, good hoppiness though. Just not my style.

HansJM (358) - NORWAY - NOV 29, 2001
Was OK, but not much more, when I tested it. Gave me some ICE-feeling, and I didn’t like that. Lots of hops, but otherwise thin.
