3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Serving: 500 ml bottle from Papsoe! Thanks Henrik! The color is a definitive amber with a large, frothy, off-white head. Lots of sticky lacing. The nose is on the light side with a touch of bread. The flavor has a lasting sweetness with notes of bread, caramel, a light fruitiness, and a slight bitterness. Sort of one sided to the malt. A little simple, but certainly serviceable, especially if you aren’t a fan of hops. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Meh, not too bad, but a little sweet for my taste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - Orange citrus, bread and some yeast. Clear orange with a nice frothy white head. Grains, caramel and a citrus acidity. Mild bitterness with a clean finish. Alcohol is barely present. Not a bad beer, but a little bland for a strong ale. I could drink this, but in this category there are so much better.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, from trade with Papsoe. It’s a clear, dark golden beer with a dense, off-white head of finger-thick height. The aroma is fruity and lightly caramel-ish, decent, but rather boring. The flavor has an appropriate bitterness, with some pale malts, and fruityness up front. Full to medium body, fruity and lighlty bitter finish. A quite decent beer, and considering the ABV, easy drinkable. 120525

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Amber colour, no head. Aroma of malts, dishwasher, candy and cardboard. Sweet flavour, malty, turning into something vegetable. Sweet finish, vegetables, adjunct. Not really your typical Pale Ale.
My guess is this brewery needs a bit more practice to get it’s act together. Still, nice to see that Greenland is getting a more active brewing community.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
dont know what they are smoking on top of the world but this is one very weird pale ale. Some floral nose but overpowered by something that can be best described as dust and metal. Surprisingly masked but a bit malty with a tangling bitter and metallic finish.
