2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
50cl bottle from Lørenskog Brusshop.It poured an light, almost transparent, yellow colour with a big head that settles down fast in the glass and almost disappears. The aroma is bitter and smells of grass, honey, and hops. The flavor is slighly bitter and tastes of malts. It has a short aftertaste.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2014 Bottle. 4.6%. Best before 03.07.15. Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a white head. Good lacing. Sweetish, spicy hop aroma. Flavour is sweetish and a wee bit tart, with the same spicy hop note as in the aroma, and with a grainy touch. Light metallic overtone. Faint cardboard note as it warms. Mildly bitter finish, with a (citrusy) hop note. Lingering grainy and light apple notes. Overall okay, if nothing special, but definitely better than the last time I rated it. 28.09.14.
Old rating: 2 / 3 / 2 / 2 / 3 = 1.2
Bottle. Pours a hazy, pale yellow with a white head and some lacing. Looks like a witbier. Aroma is cooked vegetables; a delicate blend of potatoes, carrots and peas, I believe. As it warms, it develops some malty notes, but is still dominated by the vegetables. Flavour is sweetish cereals and cooked vegetables. Notes of hay in the finish and a decent, medium bitterness. The bitterness is the only good thing about this beer. This is crap! ...There, I said it! 04-07-08.

Pours clear and olden with white head. Great floral hop aroma with citrus. More body than commercial scandinavian lagers. A great pilsner.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml bottle. Delicate hazy white golden colour. Tall white fine-laced head that clings to the glass. Clean floral hop aroma. High carbonation level. Some light notes of hay and bread and some citrus as well. Flavourwise the hops are rather neutral. The bitterness is prominent, as the malts don’t come through that well. Light grainy malts. Overall a light-bodied beer. Refreshing indeed, but could have used a little more flavour.

Kobehavnske Oldage, May 2006. Didn’t note whether it was draught or bottle. Mid gold colour. Hints of grassy hop but more biscuity malt. Pleasant enough but not one of Svaneke’s more distinctive brews.

500 ml bottle. Average coarse white head. Golden colored with a slight haze. Aroma of freshly baked bread with a sourish accent, and some whiffs of toffee and grassy hops. Taste is light sour-sweet and grainy with a citrus note and a fine bitterness. Body is light plus. Light astringent finish. Enjoyable.

En rigtig tørstslukker lige til at tylle på en varm sommerdag, er ren og blid i smagen.
