My overall favorite beer in the world. Lots of late hops give a terrific hop nose. Not much early hopping so makes it light enough for a session beer. Moderate alcohol which also makes it more of a session beer than the double IPAs that might have similar hoppy nose and flavor, but burn. Clean taste with no noticible off-flavors or aromas. Only available in about six states, but you are lucky if you live on one of these. starfireming (309) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 11, 2006
Lovely chestnut colour, medium off-white head. Aroma hoppy & crisp. Very refreshing palate. Cedar malt tones, simply fabulous. steelhead3686 (270) - Jacksonville, North Carolina, USA - JUL 1, 2012
Tasted this at the 2012 Brew Week in Athens, Ohio. Pours a light copper or even brown with a a thin white head. A nice blend of hops and and caramel malts. Medium bitter and sweetness. Light to medium body with a pleasant refreshing texture. This is best amber ale I’ve had so far. ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - AUG 13, 2007
Very fruity nose of berries, apricots, pineapple, nectarines, some alcohol, figs and yeast. The brew pours a sparkling clover honey. The fully lasting white head is both rocky and creamy and leaves good lace. The brew has a balanced front, moderately acidic middle with good complexity, but the finish could be more significant. Tastes like a good traditional IPA. The medium body is lively and dry, the finish feels crisp. Gave the brew an extra point added to the overall score for intangibles. This stuff could be habit forming, definitely a strong session offering. garrison (812) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - DEC 27, 2003
Yeah, it's got a lot of hops and is citrusy, but the body of this brew leaves a lot to be desired. Still, it's miles above the megabrew swill!

nicely pine and grapefruit hopped amber that is appropriately sweet and malty/caramel in nature.refreshing and moderate in the carbonation and palate. nice fruit sugar near the finish with a delightful melon (both honeydew and cantiloupe) pass of flavor that again is just delightful. do not miss it...and a value i think i paid just $1.99 a bottle.

Bottle at Ørsted. Tasted at pub crawl with local dept. of Danish Beer enthusiasts. When I had it I only managed to write down my rating, but no notes. Bit I liked it. Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - OCT 20, 2003
Amber-orange and hazy with a really nice smell to it (caramel-sweet and hoppy). Thick, satisfying mouthfeel and a nice carbonation level. Rich caramel sweetness in the malt profile. Yeasty-earthy, too. Very tasty hop flavors and aromas. Fruity apricot notes blend into the sweetness. Well-balanced and nicely bittered. Really tasty beer and I loved every sip!

Hazy orange color with a creamy white head. Aroama is more of caramel/toffee?? malt than hops. Flavor is pretty balanced between caramel malt and hops. Very good!!
