Very pleased to have this beer, brought back from Denmark by a great colleague. Great label and concept--I teach a course on the politics of architecture, so to have the back say "Architecture is political"...well, that’s just great. As for the beer, it’s a fairly robust though not-untypical pale ale. I didn’t get as much funkiness from the brett that I thought I would get. Fine beer, not memorable. Bottle.

First impression: Bretts! Nice funk, malty aroma, spicy yeasts, grassy hops. Taste is funky again, quite clean and grassy. Impressive aroma, taste does not quite live up. Still very nice!
