4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2004 Bottled: Orange-brown, a bit hazy, off white head. Rich flavour with notes of roasted malts and something dusty-sweet (sherry?). A good hoppy bitter finish. Overall perfectly balance between malts and hops makes this an excellent beer.

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).

Nice pilsener with good hop bitterness. The style should be filtered but here it contributes to a softer palate

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
