4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 fl oz bottle, thanks to _angst_ (and Emma). Sampled on September 18, 2014. Marked 5.1% ABV and 35 IBU (OG 12.5 Plato). No clearly indicated BB date as far as I can find.
Clear honey to golden color, fairly big, fluffy, lasting, nice looking white head. Clean, malty, a tad bit malty sweet, light grainy and bready, toasty scent. Malty, fresh, smooth, a little bit sweet, herbal hoppy, light fruity, grainy taste. Herbal, grassy, malty aftertaste. Very fresh and clean indeed. To the low side CO2, makes for a rather smooth soft body and mouthfeel though, but I’d enjoy it more if it had a bit more CO2 still. Medium to medium high bitterness, but it is masked by (likely) noble hops and a balance to the beer, perhaps brewed with soft water? Very nice, highly drinkable, very glad I got a bottle to bring home and drink as well. Cheers!
Turns rather hazy when I pour the last of the bottle in the glass as well. The drink turns even more fruity with that pour too, still a wonderful beer.

bottle, at the well-stocked baren i kronborggade. sure enough, light and summery; zesty lemon aroma; dry on the palate, perfect for a beachy situation

Bottle at hoe. Clear yelow with a small white head, ok lacings. Aroma medium malty (grain) and hoppy. Flavor light to medium sweet, grainy and spicy/bitter, dry. Light to medium body, nothing special about this one.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from BOTW. Cloudy pastel gold, fine head. Noble hop nose with DMS. Nice lemony hop flavor. Could be good, I think, were it not for the off-flavor. DMS makes it undrinkable.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. It pours an unfiltered pale yellow with a big white head that fades some but never dissipates totally. The aroma has a nice toasted malt and vaguely spicy or herbal feel to it with a clean, grassy hop note. Medium body. The taste is much like a pilsener should be with the added herbal bite and a clean crisp finish. Worth a higher grade.

THANKS! More than half of a 355 ml. bottle @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Now this is a brewery that I have been looking forward to trying since forever. Hazy orange. Nose is a bit bland, light metallic lager note with some light hops. Taste is light bit empty sweetish lager upfront, white sugar, sweet bread, bit sticky yeast, crackers, finish is quite hop forward in USA-fashion, floral and soft citrus hops, reasonable hop finish, not extreme or anything but more than you would usually expect with a beer of this style. Light lingering grass bitterness, nice but misses some cohesion / balance between the pilsner & extra hop side. Decent but if this is an indication of their other stuff, this is heavily overrated.
