Cask, at Olbaren, May 2006. An amber coloured bitter with a very authentic feel. Many overseas brewers (and plenty of UK ones) struggle to get much flavour into a 3.6% beer. Plenty don’t even think its worth trying. No such worries with this beer. The aroma doesn’t leap out but the earthy and tangy bitterness builds on the palate to very tasty effect. The dry hopping is obviously much more generous than most UK examples. Very nicely done

Cask @ Ølbaren. Pours a clear amber with a dimminishing head. Dry and quite hoppy. No CO2. Some malty caramel, but mostly hops. Fruity finish. I need more CO2 but nice hops profile.

Theis (15149) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2006
Cask at Ølbaren, earlier at Københavns Øldage 2006. Amber colour. Not much aroma, and very little flavour in the beginning. But the after taste is very dry and bitter, and a little caramel malty. A very dry hoppy version of a traditional English Bitter.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2006
Draught at Københavnske Øldage 2006. Amber colour with a weak head. Aroma of light toffee, caramel and some hints of fruitness from the hops. Tasty flavour of caramel and hops, ends up very bitter and little dry. Very tasty for the low alcohol.

Draught. Copper-orange with a tiny white ring of head. The aroma is piney and soapy. Very light body and immensely drinkable particularly because of the super-low alcohol content. Bready,yeasty, along with some piney hops. Sampled at the Ølfabrikken Brewday on May 19, 2006.
