Danish: Kast mørket af dig, slip gækken løs og byd lyset velkommen! Så enkelt kan budskabet i vores forårs-IPA ”Kåååd” opsummeres. Ikke mange ved dette, men en hel generation af Kobe-kvæg opfodres et hemmeligt sted på Amager med den mask, der bliver til overs fra vores ølproduktion. Da disse - verdens lykkeligste køer - åd masken fra lige netop denne øl, brød de ud i et jubel-muuh så højt, at det kunne høres helt inde på Rådhuspladsen. Køernes efterfølgende forårskåde bukkespring kom op i en højde så stor, at de lykkelige køer forcerede enhver indhegning og fortsatte dybt ind på Kalvebod Fælled. Siden har ingen set dem. Og hvad de laver derinde, kan vi kun gisne om... Men akkurat som Amagers hemmelige – og lykkelige - Kobe-kvæg, vil du kære livsnyder med garanti, bryde ud i spontan forårskååådhed, når du indsniffer den vederkvægende duft af frisk aromahumle, som Kåååd er pakket med. Tillykke med foråret – og gør nu ikke noget, som vi ikke ville have gjort...

English: Throw off the darkness, make merry and bid the light welcome! That is the simple message in our Spring IPA "Kåååd" (Frisky). Not many people know this, but there is a whole herd of beef cattle being raised in a secret Amager location on the spent grain from our beer production. This cattle herd, surely the happiest in the world, had barely tasted the grain from this very beer, before they let out a celebratory MUUH so loud that it could be heard all the way to downtown Copenhagen. The ensuing merriment in the herd caused a Stampede greater than any seen in Calgary in July. But one thing is for sure: If you, dear hophead, partake of this brew, you will become as frisky as our happy heifers as soon as you catch a whiff of the aromatic hops that we have jam-packed into "Kåååd". Have a merry old spring - and don’t do anything we, or the happy cattle, wouldn’t do...

Slightly unclear. Nice off-white head. Citrusy aroma. Well-balanced and fine taste. Delightful aftertaste and good drinkability.

DraftDodger (1793) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2017
Copenhagen 21/9 2017. 50 cl bottle from Meny. Some kind of red Bunny Girl on the label. I suspect she's some kind of variation of the Easter Bunny (the Eggs that surround her is a give away). Pours hazy orange with quite substantial white head. Moderate lacing. Aroma is rich and intensely hoppy. Sweet base from the malts, exotic fruit intermingling with citrus and grape fruit. Pretty fresh with a citric twist. Soft carbonation and medium thick palate. Flavor is medium sweet followed by strong dry bitterness. Aftertaste is sour grape fruit and finish is dry. Refreshing and easy to drink if you like your beer bitter and slightly dry.

Melko hyvä. IPAlta ei maistunut. Jaakon kanssa illan päätteeksi soundbreakingin kera.

adamnowek (3509) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 3, 2017
Very murky brass colour with a rosy tinge. Very thin head. Aroma is hay and a bit of pastry. Taste is sweet tropical fruit and malt. Boozy character even though it isn’t that strong.

TET (3280) - Kaarina, FINLAND - AUG 1, 2017
An orange beer, a head is medium and blond. ARoma has tropical notes, mangos and citrus, caramel, pine and some wood. Taste has wood and pine, only some citrus, medium bitterness, balanced sweetness. Long and wooden end. Medium bodied, low carbonation. More fruitness would be better, but balanced.

bjorn77 (844) - Kraków, POLAND - JUL 14, 2017
Aromat: niezbyt mocny, żywiczny, sporo cytrusów, białe owoce, świeży i lekki. Wygląd: bursztynowe i złote, czyste, przejrzyste, bardzo ładna średniowysoka warstwa drobnopęcherzykowej białej piany, dosyć szybko zanikającej. Smak: wytrawne, bardzo rześkie, pijalne i sesyjne. Przede wszystkim sosnowa żywica na pierwszym planie, dalej bardzo lekka i subtelna słodycz owoców tropikalnych, mango, papaja, marakuja, ananas. Cytrusy głównie biały i czerwony grejpfrut, pomarańcza. Goryczka potężna, żywiczna, zalegająca, ale bardzo przyjemna i orzeźwiająca. Ciało i wysycenie średnie, piwo bardzo dobrze zbalansowane, słodycz idealna jak dla mnie dla stylu,. bardzo pijalne, udane i smaczne. 7/4/8/4/18

Icedwarf (1883) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUN 25, 2017
Oranjegeel bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is mooi bitter hoppig en fris fruitig met sporen van zwarte thee en ananas. Bitterheid is perfect in balans.

Maits (600) - ESTONIA - JUN 2, 2017
Clear dark golden beer with white head. Aroma is fruity citrus, malty. Taste is hoppy bitter balanced with medium sweetness. Medium body. Bitter finish. Overall descent beer.

Humlehode (866) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 10, 2017
Pours clear golden. Aroma of caramel, dried fruit, citrus, pine. Balanced bitterness ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kaserov (1102) - Oviedo, SPAIN - MAY 7, 2017
Color dorado, translúcido, con capa de espuma blanca de dos dedos de grosor (retención decente). Carbonatación media. Textura acuosa y un tanto efervescente. Aroma ligero a cítricos, herbal, y un poco de resina. Sabor planillo, me cuesta identificar lo que hay en boca. Cítricos sobre todo, algo de pomelo... Nada de malta. Final resinoso de amargor medio. Seca. Perfectamente fresca, no me llama la atención.

copestx (227) - Vesterbro, DENMARK - APR 23, 2017
Something to look forward to each Spring. Maybe Amager’s best IPA (at least when had super fresh). Just such a nice balance of fruit, resin, caramel malt and grain. Hoppy as hell, yeah, but just so tasty without being one-dimensional. A favorite.
