3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Flaske, delt med Ovesen på Holmens aktivitetsdag: klar gylden, fint skum. Mye aroma fra amerikanske humler (citrus og grapefrukt) og det samme i smaken. Synes egentlig at den smaker mer som en litt tynn apa enn en pils. Halvitørr avslutning.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle shared with JMD at HNB 29.08.15. Orage. Uneven white head and lacing. Soft aroma of citrus and marmelade. Similar taste, also with succade and green grapes. Refreshing. Good drinkability. I wouldn?t be able to differentiate any element of this beer from an American pale ale.

Bottle. Quite alright. Drinking this feels like drinking an ipa without the fruits. It’s a nice pilsner but it still might be a better idea to drink a proper ipa.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
pours hazy light brown - amber colour with white weak head. Visually high carbonation with fast rising bubbles.
Aroma without presence of an alcohol, with strong presence of hops. Esters of tropical fruits, pineapple, mango etc.
Taste is similar, without presence of an alcohol and with firstly sweet note of malts, with bitter finish. Flavour of malts have notes of pine, but immidiately prevails notes of hops: You can detect various tropical fruits.
Malt sweetness is medium, hop bitterness also, but surprisingly high for pilsener.
But this is not an average pilsener: this is special, hoppy beer, made with love.
