Københavnske Øldage 07. Bottle. Golden and hazy. The aroma has notes of malt, fruit, citrus and the flavour is fruity, citrussy with a little maltiness and a nice, dry bitterness. It’s not an overwhelming IPA, but very British. 2152

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very clear golden brew, well-carbonated, with just off-white head. Toasted, or pre-sliced bread; warm malts, then fresh garden herbs and lunaria . In the taste, first a dull, sweet impression, alleviated by some grassy hopsflavour, but qutie subdued, a bit dull after all. Toasted again too. Medium bodied, ending a bit empty. Okells must be the only brewery in my knowledge, managing to make a wheatbeer that is more interesting than their IPA!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden ale, pleasing zingy hops here, but not as strong or as highly hopped as I think an IPA should be. The flavour had the character of a cask ale, usually absent in bottled British ales.
