COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A mass-market brewery simply could not make a beer like this. Unfiltered, unpasteurized, and bursting with flavor, it has phenomenal body and freshness. Hazy to the eye, and full on the palate. 6 week brewing time. Barley, yeast, hops and water.

gazza_b13 (6) - - SEP 11, 2014 does not count
Refreshing lager, no particular aroma to speak off, cloudy unfiltered appearance, easy tasting very easy on the palate, a session beer of note, nothing like the usual bland mass produced industrial lagers

JorgeLee (1188) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle from Whole Foods Piccadilly. Light yellowish golden colour with a haze and a thick white head. Fresh modestly hoppy aroma. Very pleasant and drinkable lager, it is fresher and less chemically than your average macro. Soft malt, I felt it just played with being hoppy and erred on the side of caution.

JanLaursen (3084) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2014
Flaske, 50 cl. Uklar bleg gylden med et lille hvidt skum. Dufter er mere i retning af hvedeøl end af lagerøl med noter af banan, nelikker, citron, hø, græs. Ret sød i munden, nærmest idt lidt klæg. Drukket i dag, glemt i morgen.
