@Skagen Bryghus. Menu says Simcoe-hops, same on their homepage; not cascade. Perhaps a new entry: "Grillstarter 15"? Amber coloured and almost clear. Has a white head. Heavy hoppy, pine, grass. Heavy bitter and dry.

DraftDodger (1081) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2016
Copenhagen 3/6 2016. 50 cl bottle brought home from a Plant Outlet by my girlfriend. Strange place to pick up a beer. Sizzeling coal on the label to imply that this is indeed a Barbecue beer (Danes are very enthusiastic about barbecues). Pours slightly hazy yellow with big white head. Settles as 1,5 cm thick layer of creamy foam. Some lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma of sweet malts with a light citrus touch. Soft carbonation and slightly thick palate. Taste is sweetish at first but more than balanced by distinct bitterness that lingers in the aftertaste. A fresh and nicely bitter beer that does what itís supposed to.

yngwie (16503) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle. An unclear one, dark golden to amber in color, with a dense, finger-thick off-white head on top. The aroma is quite weak, with pale malts, caramel hints and a touch of citrusy hops. Itís medium bodied and soft on the palate, with toffee hints, some yellow apples, and a decent bitterness. Short finish with caramel and bitterness. Not very balanced this one, and not very tasteful either. 150124
