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!

[Sampled at the MS-Swamp-lovers gathering.] Great surprise from Haderslev. Did not expect that, but the cascade is wellbalanced in normal doses and could do a very great job on tap in the summertime.

Can. Clear golden pour with huge white head. Aroma has some traces of freshness. Taste has some hoppy bitterness. Very easy drinkable. Not a lot of complexity.

Great Beer from Danish Fuglsang. Used to love The Black Bird, but The Early Bird is realy Good! Fruity taste, lost of bubbles. Great Beer to enjoy at sunset :-)

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!

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.
