COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Maw Hyw ligger ikke langt fra den gamle drivvej i Lyne. Højen kaldes også Kong Maws høj, og der er tilmed også en dronninghøj. Lyne siges, at have været midtpunkt i et af småkonge-dømmerne, før Harald Blåtand samlede riget. Øltypen er en India Pale Ale eller forkortet IPA. Det høje humleindhold giver en bitter, men særdeles frisk smag. Kong Maw er upasteuriseret, ufiltreret og eftergæret på flasken. Derfor kan bundfald forekomme, og øllet bør hældes forsigtigt op for at undgå bundfald i glasset.

Bottle 500ml. @ DOE Tasting, Fox & Hounds, Holstebro.
[ As Fjordens Kong Maw ].
Clear medium orange amber color with a average, frothy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, chlorine, rubber. Flavor is moderate sweet, moderate acidic and moderate to heavy bitter with a long duration, chlorine, cleaning agent. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. IMO not a IPA just a bad beer ! [20100330]

Bottle. Hazy medium orange color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, beige head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, moderate hoppy, pine, grapefruit, orange, light yeasty, yeast. Flavor is moderate sweet and light bitter with a average duration. It is quite out of balance, it is like the bitter and sour stands alone. Body is medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft. (110907)

(Bottle 50 cl) Slightly hazy amber golden with a small, off-white head. Very unclean aroma of sewer water. Medium body, some roasted malts, vitamin notes and then an immensely brutal and unrefined bitter finish. 150807

Dedollewaitor (13686) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 30, 2007
Cloudy orange with a nice large egg white head. Aroma is of hops - fruity, flowery, piney plus some sweet malts. Body is medium. Flava has a good amount of bitter hops. Not very varied, rather one dimensional. Easy drinkable & not bad. A bit boring perhaps, but OK!
