Bottle from Supermarket near Holiday Inn, Helsinki. Unclear gold pour with an unremarkable white head. Summer fruit and grassy hop present in the nose. Bittersweet flavour with plenty of Nelson Sauvin on display. Some spice and fruity notes too. Dry bitter finish. Enjoyable stuff and plenty of character for the strength.

130912: Dørkegul beer with fine foam and lovely nelson Sauvin hop aroma. silly to write on the back label in English when it is 100% Danish beer. The beer is a bit thin place, with lots of bitterness, almost no body, but of course backed up by a good hop flavor and aroma. Fine singlehop beer to taste the hops despite it is so bitter.

From tap @Fermentoren, København. Slightly hazed, pure gold colored body. Low blond head. Tropical-fruity hop nose, and a whiff of light toasted malts. Taste is on the sweet side. Clean, restrained malt body. Fruity hop flavor, not very bitter though. Well-bodied for a 4.6% beer. Soft mouthfeel. Light bitter-sweet endnotes. A pretty nice summer seasonal.
