500ml can from Rema 1000, Copenhagen - Amber pour with thin off white head and lacing. Sweet caramel malts, yeasty, some nice fruity hop tones in there as well. Certainly good quality to value ratio when you consider this is fairly cheap to pick up. Decent enough.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear copper liquid with a medium sized white foam that left big chunks on the side of the glass.
Lager-like smell, bread, malt, citrus and just a little bit of metal and hops.
Grassy hops, malt, citrus and also some fruits. Canít quite distinguish which, but feels like a faint tangerine taste.
Medium smooth with a medium thick body. Feels ok I have nothing to complain about really.
Comment: A fairly easy to drink American pale ale that I initially mistook for a lager. The only thing that made me think otherwise before trying it was the foam that didnít look much any lager Iíve seen. Even as I drink it I find some characteristics that I relate to regular Danish lagers. Not sure why I draw that reference, could it be the yeast? Itís also very moderately hopped, which is a bit disappointing.
This beer might work with your Easter dinner, but I have a feeling itís better suited for that first Spring sun. Find shelter from the cool winds and I think this beer would come to itís best.
