12 oz bottle packaged 6/30/05-pours a thick creamy light tan head that reduces. Color is clear yellow-gold. Appearance of the beer is minimal carbonation. Aroma is hoppy-malt. Taste is hoppy with nicely balancing of malts. Good carbonation. This beer is much better out of a glass than the bottle.

madsberg (10781) - Søborg, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2004
Bottled: Golden coloured. Off white medium sized head. Hoppy and malty aroma. Not as distinct as I like it. Flavour is a bit watery and bland. Dies quickly on the palate. This isn’t the most interesting american beer, but nevertheless its my no. 100 american. Thanks Jacob and Martin for sharing.
