Xavalias (256) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2014
On tap at the Mother restaurant, Copenhagen, Denmark. Clear yellow with a thin but persisting head that leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma of malts, and a hint of hops. The taste is sweet with a hint of bitterness in the aftertaste. Smooth palate. Not a bad lager.

"it seems to me Italy does pale lagers better than just about everyone else. here’s another that’s nothing to write home about, but i’d have no problem ordering one at a restaurant."

C’est d’un blond très pâle, mais la mousse crémeuse tient le temps nécessaire. Un nez de céréales, d’herbes et de maïs. Le goût, picotant, est ordinaire. C’est effervescent, malté, poivré et c’est à peu près tout. Ça égratigne un peu au passage. M.A. 08,06,15 (1192-170814)

This is an excellent choice for a restuarant to have on their bottled beer menu. Enjoyed this immensely, and will def look for again - but only if there’s no real ale

Fairly standard lager, nice maltiness to it and dry on the palate, nothing special, but quite drinkable
