Fresh and wellbalanced flavour from barley and oakmalts and a fine aromatic touch of Amarillo Hops. Rich flavour with a good bitter finish. Drink solo as well as accompanied by food. The beer is unfiltered and unpasteurised.

Zesty citrus and floral hops are prominent in the aroma along with some bready malt character. Slight haze to the deep golden tan coloured body that is topped with a pillowy, fine bubbled, off white head that recedes very slowly to a lasting cover with plenty of lacing. Fair sweetness is offset nicely by a crisp bitterness and lasting notes of floral, citrus and grassy hops. Some toasty malt character is especially notable in the finish. There is just a hint of buttery diacetyl that seems out of place and keeps this from excellence for me and it becomes more noticeable as it warms up. Light, refreshing body with lively carbonation that engages the tongue. Fridge temperature. Tulip glass. Bottle (M.h.t. 30.08.2005 / B88, Ølbutikken, Aug-05).

bager (2120) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - JAN 6, 2006
Bottle. Not my favorite beer type - BUT - this is one of the best pilsners I have ever tasted. Great amber color with beautifull off white head. Really a nice taste of summer. Long lasting taste of hop, plums and maybe if I close my eyes I can sense a bit of apple too. Very good.

Amber colour with a creamy off white head. Moderate aroma of malt and hobs. Hints of citrus in the taste. A very powerful pilsner

Tasted at Fynske øldage. Wonderfull head, fully lasting. Nice aroma and very bitter flavour, a bit acetic in a good way.

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2010 Bottle 50 cl The Herslev Pilsner is a dark, amber coloured, unfiltered beer with a huge, lively and stable head. Distinct hoppy aroma and hoppy flavours on a very solid, malty base. Incredibly tasty for a pilsener with a lovely freshness. 091004

On tap. As "Herslev Magnum Pilsner" - a dryhopped version at the Copenhagen Beer Festival 2010.

Belgo (154) - Køge, DENMARK - AUG 4, 2005
Botlle. Very hoppy aroma with nice grainy/malty notes as well. Taste is hoppy and with elements of fresh toast also. Nice bitterness. Probably the best Danish pilsner currently.

ChristianSA (368) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2005
On tap. Beautiful creamy head on top of a golden beer, which has some chill haze, but clears up as it warms. The aroma is malty and sweet without detectable hops. The flavor is dominated by malt sweetness and it is very estery and slightly alcoholic. It ends with good firm bitterness. Syrupy, smooth mouth feel with a little too aggressive carbonation. Not a typical pilsener - reminds me more of a Belgian ale.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - APR 14, 2005
Bottle. Cloudy golden with large dense head. Malty, berries?, little lactic, dry finish, quite complex pilsener. Nice.
