An American inspired pale ale using European malts and American hops. The light addition of crystal and chocolate malt contribute to the orange hue of the beer along with some caramel notes. Cascade hops are added late in the boil along with Simcoe hops in the whirlpool to give this beer it’s unique apple, tangerine and citrus profile. The yeast from America also contribute some light strawberry notes to this tasty beer from Fuglsang. A celebration of Spring in Denmark!

Synes normalt ikke Fuglsang er det store at skrive hjem om. Men early bird er til gengæld værd at skrive om. Den har en klar smag af Cascadehumle, en rigtig tør smag. Den har en frugtagtig let sødlig eftersmag. Helt klart den bedste øl fra Haderslev!

PapaVillum (850) - Valby, DENMARK - APR 19, 2016
Kobberfarvet American Pale Ale med mindre køn offwhite skumkrone på 1-2 cm. Rolig og filtreret. Let sødlig aroma af appelsin, wienermalt og lidt fjern marmelade. Ikke så karakteristisk. Smagen er umiddelbart sødligere end andre sammenlignlige APAs, men har en solid bitter afslutning. Smagen er mere henad en tysk Bock IMO. Indledes sødt, dernæst kommer humlen og afsluttes humlebittert. Middel fyldig krop, fin frisk og sprød mundfølelse og almindelig karboneret. Overall: Bevares, ganske drikkelig øl omend genren er lidt svær at afgøre. Til prisen er det sikkert et godt valg. 50 cl, dåse, 5.5 % ABV, BB: 19/07/17, gave fra C. Handschuh - tak! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

500ml can @ Shrewsbury Beer Share, March 16, thanks to Mike! Pours amber, white head. Aroma is sweetcorn & syrupy orange. Taste is boozy with a barley wine marmalade sweetness, with a metallic dry finish. Not a great start to the evening.

500ml Can on 7th March 2016: Shrewsbury Beer Exchange Group meeting. Thanks Simon (I think), for bringing this. Clear amber pour, white head that tried to hang around. Fairly sweet tasting brew with a definite corn like feel to the whole thing, grainy beer and a long way from being an APA in my limited experience of drinking them.

Flaske. ravfarvet med en hvid skumkrone. Humle i såvel aroma som smag. Her får man god øl til små penge

The first time I had this one it was a few months old, i.e. not entirely fresh. This time, however, it’s a real oldie, it’s passed its best before date by a few days. It pours a crystal clear medium amber body with a rather large, creamy, long-lived head that laces the glass very well. Rather strong aroma that is very malty, but there is still a reasonable amount of hops left: caramel, pale malts and tropical fruits. Fairly strong flavour of caramel, pale malts, tropical fruits and grapefruit, and pine needles in the back. It’s surprisingly tasty for its age, but it was a tad more hoppy and citric half a year ago. Light sweet taste with a pleasant medium bitter finish. It’s quite light-bodied, has a dry texture and is moderately carbonated. A nice one, I’d like to taste a fresh one some day.
[50 cl can, enjoyed 5 days after BB date, from Fakta Strandby, Jylland]

50 cl can@home in lager glass@approx 6 degrees C. Pours amber orange with large white head and sufficient retention. Fruity aroma signalling American hops. Taste a good mix of caramel malt, fruitiness from the hops used and bitterness, especially in the long aftertaste. Well balanced beer. Tasty without becoming extreme, I will certainly buy this again when available. And it is not very expensive either :-)
