Tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration Day Two. Pours clear gold with a fine, white foam head. Massive spicy cedar nose. Big sweet flavor, lightly boozy with some honey and plenty of cedar wood. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Warm finish with some alcohol sting, mild pine bitterness, and just loads of cedar wood character. Light dryness, medium sweetness. Lasting woody bitterness. If cedar is your favorite you’ll love this. Otherwise, the cedar may be a bit much. I’m somewhere in between. Rasmus40 (20302) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2012

Oakes (17274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 18, 2012
Hazy light amber. Thin head. The aroma is massively cedary with orangey/marmaladey notes and some thick, overly sweet malts. The palate is sweet up front, with marmalade and lots of malt. There’s actually a bit too much as it gets cloying. The finish carries with it more dryness, largely on account of the dominant cedar character. The cedary spiciness is a bit out of balance, being very strong, and the malts probably could benefit from being a bit thinner. The impression is a good beer but probably too one-dimensional. chrisv10 (17273) - DENMARK - MAY 22, 2012
Tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration, 2012. Hazy golden with small white head. Aroma is malt, fruit, hops and strong cedar. Flavour is malt, fruit, strong cedar, hops, medium bitter, wood, pine and citrus. mcberko (17178) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 20, 2013
750mL bottle, sent from LateStart (thanks Jordan), pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out pungent cedar upfront which dominates, a bit of citrus, but not much else – this is all cedar on the nose. Flavour is similar, bringing out prominent cedar notes which dominate, with very light citrus notes. The cedar is monolithic in this, with a light body, leaving strong woody cedar notes. The best of the Dos Costas beers, but still nothing special. yngwie (17038) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2012
On tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. Looking more or less clear in the glass, golden in color and with a dense, finger-thick white head on top. There’s quite a lot of cedar in the aroma, with pine cones, grapefruit peel and a generic fruityness. Not much maltyness. The flavor is less influenced by the cedar, but it’s still there, along with grapefruit peel, fruityness, a little touch of pale malts and an appropriate level of bitterness. Full-bodied, creamy and soft on the palate, quite dry. Bitter, citrusy finish. A really nice one, tasteful and quenching even though it’s quite high on the ABV level. 120511 jtclockwork (16436) - , New Jersey, USA - AUG 3, 2012
