COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

What a great surprise this was! Fuglsang is a hit or miss for me. They’ve made some great brews and some mediocre brews through the years. Early Bird is an outstanding beer! Lots of Cascade hops dominate, but some slightly fruity sweetness weighs it out brilliantly. Probably the best and most complex brew from Danish Fuglsang. Highly recommend!

Clear amber, rocky, white head. Hoppy aroma, soft bitterness, orange, caramel. Creamy mouthfeel, not bad.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2014 Can, 50cl. Pours clear golden, light amber colour with stable white-off head that leaves ok lacings. Hoppy aroma with lots of citrus, apricot and apples in a light, fruity mix that reminds you of the spring and summer. Fruity sweet taste at first with oranges, tangerine, apricots and then lots of earthy, hobs in a medium-heavy bitter dry finish. Perhaps slightly overbalanced bitterness compared to the rest of the flavours. But still pretty refreshing, enjoyable and great value for money. Medium body, oily, creamy texture, average carbonation with soft small bubbles.

[Thanks to 1st European Secret Santa]. Coppery colour with an off white head with good lasting. Aroma has notes oh hops, grassy and light caramel. Flavor has a decent bitterness, some bittery orange and light caramel. Dry mouthfeel in the final.

Frisk duft af blomster og en anelse citrus. Smagen er frisk og fyldig med en markant bitter eftersmag. Meget hod balance ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I picked this up in a can from a supermarket in Jutland, Denmark May 2013 consumed at home in garden Sunday 17th August 2013 Pours dark gold with large frothy white head, a touch hazy. Clean nose, a little metallic. Mid carbonation, little buzzy in the mouth, some mineral maltiness, again a little metallic, but despite this I actually thought this is a decent beer, I’ve had 3-4 of these now this summer and they’ve veen good. Bitter but also a steady sweetness, despite the relatively modest abv it tasted stronger. Good beer. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.5
