JorisPPattyn (7929) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 31, 2005
Dark burgundy red-foxy colour; virtually no head. American hops nose, rich, dry hopsacks, grapey, green sultana’s, and fleetingly, some Thai herb. Rich, faint sweetness, malts, but watered down texture, very markedly. Bit of chocolate, tobacco (retronasal), and of course again a good dose of US hops. Grapey, not vinous, also bit of cardboard; warming up some sweat. MF is the Achilles heel of this beer. The thinness (for a 7% ABV beer!) is so marked it is embarrassing. Aftertaste has slightly burning component. Nowhere bad. It is interesting as it has some characteristics of a session beer, and some of a Big’un. Thanks for the switch, Jeppe.

Bottle, at home. Brown with off white head, almost diminishing, no lacings. Aroma moderate malty, heavy hoppy. Flavor light sweet, heavy bitter, long duration. Light body, watery, flat carbonated.

beerbrat99 (132) - Shanghai, CHINA - OCT 20, 2005
UPDATED: APR 8, 2006 A great American style ale from Denmark! Sampled a bottle at Elmers in Roskilde. The color is a brilliant red and the hop aroma is nice and citrusy. An ale with just the right balance of malt while still having some body. I could drink this all night long!

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2005
66 cl bottle. No yeast in bottom. Reddish brown colour with a nice lance head. Great cascade aroma. Very hoppy flavour, good mouthfeel. But a little to common.

sunevdj (3176) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - OCT 15, 2005
Pours brown with an off-white head. Slightly fruity Quite bitter with aromas of friut, yeast and hops. Mild and a bit watery. Very dry hoppy finish.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Beautiful, clear light brown beer - completely missing the head. The beer is close to flat. Marked - almost fat - hoppy aroma (Cascade). Loads of roasted malt and notes of caramel. Hops add lots of flavour too but don’t leave any excessive bitterness on the palate. Quite neat, but they really have to do something about their CO2 level. 031005

The first beer I’ve tasted from Gourmetbryggeriet. Very very good debute I think, I’ll definately keep an eye on this brewery and it’s products in the future. Color is amber, head is clear white, quickly dissappearing though. Strong notes of aromatic hops, high sweetness (but not too high). Highly enjoyable..

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - SEP 19, 2005
Bottle. Brown with minimal head. Low carbonation, light-medium bodied, hops in the forground; pine, grapefruit, fruit juice, nice bitetr finish. Nice enough but after Durham Cloister and St. Cuthbert it paled in comparison.

Very promising new little brewery. A very good and nice beer with good taste and nice feeling. Bottle and label are a little boring, but in the average.

Pernille (518) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2005 Sample at the brewery. The American hops give this beer a full, hoppy aroma and flavor. Notes of burnt sugar and liquorice. Wonderful! //Re-rate: This time I had a bottle version. And although the beer still tasted great, it unfortunately suffered from a complete lack of carbonation.
