1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Very light yellow color with no head. The taste is very watery with slight fruity notes. Boring but a nice change from the usual low alcohol beers.

It looks like urine, and has an ugly palate. It tastes better than it looks. but it is not a very good beer I think.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Yellow coloured with no head. Weak aroma with notes of brewing mash. Rather weak flavour and thin finish. Not good, but rather interesting for a low alcohol brew.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sampled from bottle at Danish Beer Festival 2004 (#27).
Clear yellow body, small white head. Aroma of brewing mash, quite heavy. Very light in taste. Grainy and yeasty with a little citrus. No bitterness. Flad and boring but drinkable, specially for a LA beer.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The traditionally small Refsvindinge head and low carbonation, white head. Colour variating from clear pale yellow to unclear yellow depending on the individual bottling. As in nonchill filtered whisky a sign of old style quality!? Traces of yeast in the nose. Slightly hopped flavour with almost no bitterness. On occasion a bit metallic. Thin palate. Overall a well balanced low-alholic pale hvidtøl. A better choice on a hot summerday than most ice-beer and the like. Be prepared for 'Monday bottlings' with strange sediments. Will occasionally turn sour. None the less very good considering its a low alcoholic beer.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
A dark yellow beer with no head. The aroma is brewmashy. The flavor is wheaty with a flat sweetness. Not much like a danish hvidtøl - pretty bitter - but too thin.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2005 Very light (lys) and in no respect "untidy". I guess this is quite typical for John Rasmussen’s romantic brewing style: better interesting than homogenic. Clear pale golden colour but small head. Flavour is dominated by an acidic hoppiness and a slightly bitter finish. Not bad considering the low alcohol style. It even has hints of smoke from John’s smoky malt.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I agree that this is very intidy. I’ve heard that the master brewer at Refsvindinge sometimes really has some bad days where he fucks everything up. This beer is a living proof of that! I can imagine how much dirt there is in this beer. The taste is a little more bitter than the dark "hvidtøl". There is no head and the beer looks like a classic cloudy German wheat. The taste is acidic and metallic. If the veterinary authorities would scrutinize this beer they would find the bug that was in Bob Marley’s hair. In spite of the doubtful purity of this beer it is quite unusual and quite interesting on accout of the beer being the only amber coloured Danish "hvidtøl". The Refsvindinge brewery has done it again! All the beers are a funny and different surprise every time you consume them.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden coloured. Fruity aroma. A bit smokey. Light body, bitter finish. Good for a low alcohol beer, but untidy is a good description.
