Danish: Maw Hyw ligger ikke langt fra den gamle drivvej i Lyne. Højen kaldes også Kong Maws høj, og der er tilmed også en dronninghøj. Lyne siges, at have været midtpunkt i et af småkonge-dømmerne, før Harald Blåtand samlede riget. Øltypen er en India Pale Ale eller forkortet IPA. Det høje humleindhold giver en bitter, men særdeles frisk smag. Kong Maw er upasteuriseret, ufiltreret og eftergæret på flasken. Derfor kan bundfald forekomme, og øllet bør hældes forsigtigt op for at undgå bundfald i glasset.

Bottle 500ml. @ DOE Tasting, Fox & Hounds, Holstebro.
[ As Fjordens Kong Maw ].
Clear medium orange amber color with a average, frothy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, chlorine, rubber. Flavor is moderate sweet, moderate acidic and moderate to heavy bitter with a long duration, chlorine, cleaning agent. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. IMO not a IPA just a bad beer ! [20100330]

Bottle. Hazy medium orange color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, beige head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, moderate hoppy, pine, grapefruit, orange, light yeasty, yeast. Flavor is moderate sweet and light bitter with a average duration. It is quite out of balance, it is like the bitter and sour stands alone. Body is medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft. (110907)

Bottled (as Kong Maw). Amber colour, small off-white head. Aroma is yeast, mild sourness, wood and some slight hoppyness. Flavour is rather sour with some malts and hops as well. A bit infected.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 1, 2010
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of fonefan. Comes as "Fjordens Kong Maw". Pours a dark amber with a slight haze and a rough white head. Sweet caramel and fruit in the nose. Medium body, fruity and caramelish with a dry and hoppy finish. But an IPA?? What a joke. 010410

(Bottle 50 cl) Slightly hazy amber golden with a small, off-white head. Very unclean aroma of sewer water. Medium body, some roasted malts, vitamin notes and then an immensely brutal and unrefined bitter finish. 150807

As Fjordens IPA. Clear amber with an off-white head. Aroma is malty, caramel and acidic. Flavor is medium sweet, light bitter and rather sour. IPAs are supposed to be bitter not sour and acidic. Badly infected. I’ve had two beers from Fjordens and both have been infected. I’m honestly thinking about trying the rest of their range just to see, if they are capable of brewing a clean beer. 180811

fiulijn (20507) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 15, 2007
Hazy golden color. Aroma of wet soil, wet cereals, some malt. Medium body strength, some sweet malt flavor, quite strong bitterness, with some hop oils; the final is long. Quite pleasant.

harrisoni (18578) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2008
Bottle at Chris_o birthday bash 08. Amber thin beige head. Expected more hop on aroma. OK, some hop, some malt, ok, but not really an IPA.

saxo (18302) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2008
