whoah, somehow this had slipped through my ratings. Had another of these the other night and remembered what a fine and fairly distinctive beer this is. I’m going to describe this as a "rough" beer. Like many straightforward ales but with an earth tone that gives it a certain unrefined element I enjoy biz82 (1327) - austin, Texas, USA - MAY 7, 2005
Almost clear and amber with an off white head. Sharp and spicey hop aroma with toffee and some diacetyl. Clean and caramelly with a nice bitter finish. Flavors of bread and malt and some resinous hops. Well made historic "lager." osmg95 (44) - Ohio, USA - MAY 7, 2005
I apprecaite this beer for being brewed well but it just doesn’t do it for me. Aroma is weak and I really don’t get it all the hype. JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - MAY 4, 2005
(on bottle) Clear, amber-golden; big beige head. Heavy yeasted nose, with a tiny hoparoma; good balance. Bubblegum-feeling in the mouth and a light caramel/toffeeflavour. Bit burby, but a good session beer. jcwattsrugger (12559) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - MAY 1, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2005 An amber with nice color and head that has reasonable staying power. Not much aroma and a not bad, but, less than satisfying taste.

A nice amber, good lager type beer about what you’d expect for a brand now seemingly nationwide. BeerAteHer (384) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - APR 29, 2005
This is a beer that was one of the first micros to become a common sight. At that time it seemed great; in light of the micro-Renaissance it’s still a very good beer. Malty, grassy-hop aroma. Flavor is almost exclusively malty with some tea notes and hops at the end. Very full mouthfeel. ancherrera (162) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2005
UPDATED: APR 16, 2006 Assertive hops with some malt. Good carbonation. Medium amber color with decent head retention. Some fruit and a bit more complex than a typical lager. One of my favorite all around go-to beers. It’s one of the beer s I like to keep in my fridge. JDUB (178) - Venice Beach, California, USA - APR 28, 2005
Beautiful clear copper/amber color with a medium light yellow head. Some decent lacing. Has a malty aroma with a flowery hop finish. Palate is a little dry. Schioth (41) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 27, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2005 Draught at Alumen Bar, Copenhagen. Very nice, malty aroma. Fresh light-red, golden appearance. Great malty flavor with just twist of hops, incredible for a 4,8%. Not a bad finish either. Mouthfeel very nice. Functions both as a thirst-quencher and as a special experience. Overall very recommendable.
