(Draught at Den Tatoverede Enke, Copenhagen, 18 May 2007) Golden yellow colour, slightly hazy, with white head. Malty nose with notes of spicy hops. Malty, rather bitter taste with lots of spicy hops. Dry, fresh and grassy finish. Very aromatic pilsner.

A Mes rate: Bottle @ Københavnske Øldage. Golden pils like colour. Lovely malty pils nose that really got my hopes up. Sadly the flavour is a let down of tangy bland malt and very little else. Watery palate completes the disappointment. Shame.

Rumours about this beer has been good and bad. When it’s at its best, maybe the best pilsner in DK, but infection can make this statement false. It has happend some times, also for me, so we have to wait and see, if they get better with the qualitycontrol in the future.

Very good beer,I can’t describe it like a pilsener,it is quiet pale. Too much malt in the aroma, finally honest beer.

The last of my pilseners from my incredible trade with Engelsmann. Consumed on 6/20/06. And still I marvel at the scores for these Danish pils.....Supremely unfiltered and unpasteurized, this now-well-settled beer decants to a near perfect clarity, with burnished copper and strong golden-brass notes. Mountains of unstoppable head fill the glass and are slow to recede, proving rocky at the top and lacing in large, clumps throughout. A large coating of sediment sits on the bottom of the bottle. Numerous medium-size bubbles rush in a flurry throughout the liquid. Bitter and hoppy in the nose, with some light grassiness and plenty of dry, unripened fruitskins (kiwi, starfruit, nectarine, white grapefruit). Quite startling to the senses, really, with a strong backing of honeyish pils malt and very light toastiness. Crisp yeast beckons on the end and not long can I resist taking a sip. I am greeted by a well-bittered and well-yeasted attack in the flavor. Bitter hops fluidly transition in to crisp lager yeast, carried on by a tight, natural carbonation that all the while draws strength from the sweet pale malts. Medium attenuation levels produce a slightly more sweeter than average pils, but the bitter hops work towards keeping this sweetness in check, while a definite smokiness is noted in passing through the middle. Vanilla and leafy, grassy, herbal hops combine to overwhelm (nearly) the palate as the finely bubbled carbonation resets well the palate at the end of each sip. So intriguing is this grainy, almost smoky, wood-like flavor. Never really seen this before in a pilsener and it really helps set this one apart. Working hand in hand with the hops as they grow more bitter and more dry with breathing. Light lime and lemon notes emerge, mixing extremely cohesively with the sugary pils malts to give a lemon-cake-icing feel on the finish. Sweet, for sure, but wonderfully interesting in both hop and malt flavor, with a crisp, appropriate, biting yeast. No alcohol noted, engaging carbonation.
