Draft at Sct Clements, Aarhus. This beer was not really the highlight of my 6,000-mile journey to Denmark. Pours an oily, hazy amber. This is a pilsner? No head. Big sweet vegetal and buttery nose. Kinda like artichokes dipped in popcorn butter. Slick medium body, low carbonation. Tangy cardboard mid palate with artichokes and butter. Long buttery finish.

Tap@Apollo, Copenhagen (21/08/2015 RBESG2015) - pours gold with a white head. Aroma and taste is grassy and grainy, straw, hay, crisp and light on the palate, medium to light in body, not bad.

Keg at the brewpub, RBESG ’15 day 2, 21/08/15. Clear golden with a moderate off white covering. Nose is cereal, grain, light bread, straw. Taste comprises grassy notes, touch of caramel, bread dough, vague citric tones. Medium bodied, spritzy carbonation, semi drying close. Ok pils.

olsvammel (4686) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 2, 2015
On tap at the restaurant at Tivoli in Copenhagen. Very light smell with some bread. Bready and light fruity taste. A bit artificial. Fairly smooth. Light bitterness but more then the other three beers I had here. Very light beer, didn’t stand out.

djoeye (2755) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 31, 2015
Look; off white layer, pale straw body. Aroma; spices, candies, toffee, malts. Taste; caramel, malts, toffeefee, dusty hops behind - leading to a easy sweet finish with light malts and grass. Light body, summer feel, good enough. [15cl taster "Flakhaven Pilsner" @ Flakhaven Odense DK, T@Ferie2015]

Damn, another one... I’ll have to recheck my entire journey’s worth of notes. Lost rating from my Denmark/Sweden/Norway trip in September 2010. Maybe when I visited it with Papsoe (and potential thanks? :)). Golden body, big head that went away slowly (damn... proud I managed to decipher my shorthand here... BhSlo (FFS Marko, FFS)). Light grainy nose. Nice grainy taste, quite nice graininess, vague hop bitterness. Something else that might be herbal acidity?!?, which I found nice?!? Overall not too special, but a solid beer.
