From tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma is buttery, quite thick buttery. Flavour is soft and mellow malty again with a clear buttery note. Slight fruity note before a rather short finish. Strangely the beer isn’t offensive nor bad despite the dominant buttery notes. Mideocre brew with a deduction in overall due to the dominant buttery notes.

Ungstrup (29987) - 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.

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 11, 2005
(On tap) Pretty pilsener golden with a creamy, white head. Weak hints of malt in the aroma. Starts malty and sweetish but ends dry and lightly hoppy with a sulphurous edge. 291005
Earlier Rating: 8/13/2005 Total Score: 3.2
(On tap) Pretty, deep golden colour, slightly hazy with a small, dense head that sticks to the glass. Very fruity nose, and the fruitiness continues pretty much all the way through. Aromatic from the hops which also leave a solid shot of bitterness that lingers for a long time. Low in carbonation and quite lovely. 111201

oh6gdx (21553) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 15, 2013
Draught@Apollo, Copenhagen. I’ve always missed this one, and this time was very close as well, until it struck me like lightning, I need the pils! Golden colour, mediumsized creamy head, that leaves good lace. Aroma is bready, slightly yeasty with some nice grass and grains as well. Flavour is grassy, floral and some hay along with sweet malts. Balanced and quite Czech like. Felt very fresh.

omhper (20450) - 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.

fiulijn (15760) - 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.

yngwie (14703) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 28, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2006 Draught at the Flakhaven brewery. Golden beer with white head. Light fruity, malty flavor. Nice pilsner. I may have been a little influenced by the setting and all the good beer this evening, should probably re-rate this sometime. (20051028)

harrisoni (14508) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2008
On tap at Apollo in Copenhagen. Gold, haze, lasting head. Pretty tasty pilsner, maybe unfiltered, it’s ok, maybe needs a few more hops on end to be really interesting. No cardboard. Fine.
