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.

Botle.50cl. Nice color and a ok head, but the rest of the beer is not ok. It is overpowered by sulfur and yeast.

Bottle 500ml @ home
Pours cloudy amber with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel and fruity hops. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter. Body is medium, texture is thin, carbonation is soft.

POLK (1944) - Hørning, DENMARK - FEB 22, 2011
Lovely hoppy red ale with a wild frothy foam that hangs in lace. Bitter ale, fresh and easily drinkable with a good taste.

jesperhammer (2646) - 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.

Bottle. Bit hazy amber body witha medium off white head. The aroma is caramel and peachy citrussy hops. The flavour is moderate hoppy with notes of citrus, light grass and caramel.

oh6gdx (20004) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 17, 2009
Bottled (thanks Papsoe!). Amber colour with small head. Aroma is grass, fruits, some slight toffee and floral notes as well. Flavour is fruity, grassy, caramel malty and quite rich on berryish notes. A bit sourish wooden tones in it. Mild yeasty notes as well.

Maria (9963) - Thisted, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2009
It is hazy, orange-red with a nice, creamy head. The aroma has notes of citrus, oranges, malt and other fruits. The flavor has a light sweetness and notes of malt, caramel, biscuits, citrus, other fruits and the finish is slightly dry. It’s smooth and pleasant to drink.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - SEP 5, 2009
Sampled at DØE Beerfestival 2009, Valby. Pours an unclear golden beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is weak. The flavor is hops, and leaves a bitter palate. Overall a weak beer.
