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. Can’t 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 didn’t look much any lager I’ve 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? It’s also very moderately hopped, which is a bit disappointing.
This beer might work with your Easter dinner, but I have a feeling it’s better suited for that first Spring sun. Find shelter from the cool winds and I think this beer would come to it’s best.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle) Pours clear amber with a small off-white head. The aroma is of sweet mandarin citrus, green herbs, flowers, dry honey, spicy bread, syrup, dough, nutshells, canned fruits, mild strawberry ice cream and light caramel. Lots of subtle aromas, yet surprisingly simple on the nose. Soft hops alongside a clean, crystal and tiny roasted malt profile. The flavour is light sweet and medium bitter with notes of bitter herbs, citrus peel, bread, nutshells, fruits, flowers and light dough. The flavour is clean, almost hard with a light papery touch. Medium carbonation. Floral, citric and cookie-like finish. Light to medium bodied. Ok, not fantastic.

21-AUG-2010, bottle @Erik, brough and served blind by Gert.
Orange amber with lasting almost white head.
Hoppy bitter nose with grape fruit and pine.
Quite a malty background if this is an IPA, as is my guess, with a fine long bitter aftertaste.
A pale ale?
Well, a very dark one, but anyway a fine beer and a comeback from the bock I had yesterday.
Now I understand this beer made into the 10 best brews in DK last year according to DØE.

0,5 l can from SuperBest, Hals, Denmark. Misty sparkling deep golden body with a small white head. Floral, piny, polleny malty nose. A malty sweetness quickly recedes to a pungent resiny bitterness. Medium bodied, carbonation on the heavy side and a lasting bitter finish.

Dåse: Orange klar øl med et fint skumhoved. Dejlig duft af citrus og tydelig amerikansk humle som lovet. Ikke så megen bitterhumle hvilket gør øllen særdeles drikbar. Positivt overrasket.

Bottled as Easter Bird:
Pours clear amber with a creamy head. Nose is butter, hops and soap. Flavour is all about resin-y hops. A bit raw and rough around the edges but still pretty drinkable.

[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.

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.
