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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Cloudy yellow with a disappearing hite head. Toffee and butterscotch in the aroma, ith grassy hops. Sweet pilsner malt flavour, with a decent background of hop bitterness, just not coming together in a very pleasant way

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tasted 2008-02-08. Fresh bottle. Pours hazy, yellow with white head. Aroma: Sweet and malty. Flavours: Slightly bitter with a malty aftertaste (strangely not the other way around). The bitterness is a bit off; unpleasant! It’s a fairly good pilsner but nothing special.
