COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Fribyttere eller “filibustere” har ganske vist deres måde at se på ejerskabsforhold, men det kan ikke nægtes, at de fører et eventyrligt liv. Om det så handler om vore dages somaliske speedbådspirater, der tapper af den vestlige verdens aorta, eller de romantiserede karibiske sørøvere.. Denne karmoisinfarvede ale er flydende gods, som godt må deles - dog uden sabelraslen. Den californiske gær giver sprødhed, medens de kontinentale humlesorter Hallertauer og Spalter leverer urteagtige nuancer. Om den så er et øl-politikum kan man føre en filibusterdebat omkring.
PS: “Filibuster” betyder envidere noget i retning af en taktisk tale i politisk sammenhæng, hvor den talende snakker noget værre snik-snak for at trække politiske beslutninger i langdrag. En filibusterdebat kan derfor fint møntes til noget fuldemands-bodega-snak som ingen vegne fører hen.

Lovely hoppy red ale with a wild frothy foam that hangs in lace. Bitter ale, fresh and easily drinkable with a good taste.

thewolf (11131) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 13, 2009
Bottle, bought @ Fakta, Kolding.
Pours a wonderful redish orange with a slight hazy. Impressive, creamy, off-white head. Great duration. Hoppy aroma, some pine, a little caramel, some grapefruit and oranges. Medium carbonation, fine and dry mouthfeel. Flavour is a bit too sugary sweet at first, but the caramel feel takes over soon. Then it’s replaced by a fine, heavy hoppiness. Good dryness and lingering finish. Very drinkable.

jesperhammer (2841) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 13, 2010
13-AUG-2010, bottle @home, from "Fakta". Most beautifull orange with nice beige head. Nose is first some charamelly ale-like stuff, but quickly the hops take over and grape fruit is dominant. Later on a slightly soapy note kicks in together wit yeast. Taste is long and bitter, and I would happily drink this as an IPA. I am not a Svaneke fan, but this is fine.

50 cL bottle. Pours hazy deep orange to red with a huge, thick, lasting and light tan head. Aroma is sweet fruity, light yeasty and with a light biscuit note. Semi sweet fruity flavoured, light bitterness slowly taking over. Mild orange fruity too. Subdued malt presence. Slowly building bitterness into the far finish alongside a lasting fruity impression.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - AUG 23, 2009
(on bottle) Rusty, light red, big white head. Hefty, dry and flowerish aroma from the old-world hops good start, the taste get´s even more powerfull and if it wasen´t for a surton sulphorish taste, it would be a great drink for the hot august days. Finish are rather yeasty and sweet.
