A full-bodied lager with lots of malt and hop character. A touch hoppier than many lagers yet perfectly balanced with lots of fruity hop character and fragrance.

thewolf (11986) - Kolding, DENMARK - JAN 26, 2008
Bottle, bought @ Øltorvet.dk. Pours a pretty, weak golden with a very pretty, frothy white head - rather large. Aroma is sweet, malty, some ginger and hops. Surprisingly full mouthfeel. Flavour is malty sweet, doughy, but with a nice hoppy finish that doesn’t get too dry. Nice Pale Lager.

Rune (10927) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 10, 2012
355ml bottle kindly shared by Finn at a drinking session. Partially gushing when opened. Near-clear, yellow-gold body colour. Fresh, but subdued, floral-fruity aroma as well as pale malts. Herbal hops and malts in flavour followed by a mild fruity tail. Clean tasting. Drinkable (at Finns in Tromsø, 09.02.2012).

daknole (10836) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 25, 2008
I guess its supposed to be cool that this is organic...but it doesn’t make it a better beer. Not at all. A typcial lager. Watery and thin. Boring. Blah.

hopscotch (10557) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 7, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2008 Crystal clear, yellow lager. Huge, frothy, white head which evolves into a small, creamy, swirling head. Spotty lacing. Spicy, peppery, hoppy notes with some mild, malty notes... straw and English toffee. Also a touch floral and citrusy. Very well-balanced with just the right amount of bittering hops. Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Crisp, astringent finish.
