Hazy golden/orange, small head. Weak grassy hop aroma. Hoppy, spicy flavor, the hops dominating in the finish. Dry.

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.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 26, 2005
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 (32864) - 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.

Hildigöltur (5105) - 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 (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 (3730) - 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 (17990) - 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.
