3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from Superbrugsen for 4 Danish kroner (a little over €0.50). Now this is where the microbrew revolution reaches its goal (or one of them). This is a GOOD beer in a can and for an excellent price (for Denmark) - Tuborg and Carlsberg would be considered on special at this price. That is what I fear is unsustainable in the long run. I want to drink good beer every day - but it is too expensive. Ølfabrikken canned products are getting there. This is what the conglomerates should fear - not the Mikkellers of this world, which at best will only ever occupy a niche market at their prices.

Clear golden amber with nice head. Mild hoppy aroma of flowers, citrus caramel and spices. Flavour is bitter and so is finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can. Golden amber color with a beige head. Aroma: Toasted and sweet malt, grass, caramel and faint grapefruit.
Flavor: Toasted sweet maltiness, grass, caramel, a bit of grape. Dry finish. The old Pale Ale from Ølfabrikken was much better than this one. The best thing about this beer is the price.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2009 33 cl can, bought at Irma Vesterbrogade, København. Amber to brown color, nice big off-white head. Aroma is hops and roasted/caramel malt. Flavor is floral hops and malt. All in all a fine but a bit boring pale ale.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2010 Very easy to drink, I think there are missing som hops in the aroma and taste. Almost a traditionel pilsner, nothing special in it. And the say on the can "The life is to short to drink shit beer" I will never drink it again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml can. Firm, yellowish, mostly lasting head upon a clear, copper-orange colored body. Acidulous fruity and light floral hop aroma. Medium sweet malty taste, paired with a proper amount of light earthy and piney bittering hops. Feels smooth in the mouth. Fine bitterness in the finish. Both rounded and refreshing.
