3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear pale amber with one finger of dense off-white head, good retention and lacing. (4/5) Nose is toffee malt, pine resin, overripe tropical fruit, some floral. (6/10) Taste is mild sweet, moderate bitter. (6/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, lingering bitter finish. (4/5)
Not bad, but the malt-forward aspect isn’t great. There’s a note in the flavour that I suspect can be attributed to the malted corn. I guess I see what they were going for - a southern US style pale ale - but the fact is, it’s hard for me to smell corn and not think “crappy adjunct lager”. Bottom line, this one isn’t hitting on all cylinders for me. (13/20)

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very nice American Pale Ale. Pours a thick long lasting foam. Fruity taste with plenty of citrus and grapefruit just like most modern APAs but still balanced. The maize gives it a special round/sweet aftertaste. I can recommend this beer and I hope to drink it again soon.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a 330ml bottle on 21/2/2015. Pours a clear deep golden witha medium head, The nose is pleasant - lots of stone fruit and some light floral notes. Taste wise, it has a decent biscuity malt backbone, which supports lots of sweet fruit (apricot, peach) and honey, which is then countered some big, slightly grapefruity hops. Medium bodied with average carbonation. This is a really classy, cohesive, flavoursome pale. Yet to try a dud from these guys. Can’t believe much excellent beer comes out of Denmark.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured into a teku showing very dark brown cloudy and hazy with a finger of clean white foam that quickly dissipates to the edges.
The nose shows light pine but heavier caramel/toffee-like malts.
The palate is medium bodied and highly carbonated. First impression shows refreshing pine-like hops with slight tropical fruit flavors of pineapple and mango. Moderate fruit intensity throughout the whole beer. Continues throughout with a nice slight pale ale bitterness at the end. A solid pale ale but nothing remarkable. Still great for a warm day.
