Well, here I sit in the pub where I last saw Oliver, slightly welling up, and not necessarily able to focus so much on the beer. But it’s a beer that’s befitting of a person and an occassion that demands respect. The first thing you notice is that it’s quite fresh and lively. Slightly hazy, but a good head, Full of character, and with the kind of bitterness that I really appreciate. No negatives, you enjoy every moment. And even when gone, those good things linger in your head for a long time. A real pleasure to encounter one like this. So I raise a toast to you, Oliver McFadden, it was an honour to have known you. Hmm, the question is now whether I should review this beer...
Bottle, 33 cl. Clear golden with a dense white head, quickly diminishing becoming a small fine layer. Very fresh fruity hoppy aroma of passionfruit, kiwi, lime, light vanilla. Quite enticing. Flavor is medium sweet light maltiness and lots of fruity hops, leading to a medium bitter finish. Very well balanced with a light body, but the oily hops make this is a perfect quencher and by far the best beer I’ve so far from Ugly Duck. jensgam (159) - , DENMARK - APR 13, 2013

Bottle at Bar & Cigar, march 1st 2013. A Single hop Nelson Sauvin pale ale, can’t let that pass! A clear golden body with almost no head got me thinking maybe I was wrong? Lookskind of boring doesn’t it? Well, one shouldn’t be fooled by the look, and in this case that’s absolutely true, a unmistakable peach and grapefruit aroma fromthe Nelson strikes me as soon as I lift the glass. Moving the glass carefully to the nose because I was distracted by something that DID look good I poured my glass way too full, the fruity characteristics are really strong, and finally there’s some malt,bread notes too. Not much, this beer seemsto be all about the hop, which I can’t blame anyone for. On to the taste, the hops are totally dominating here too, fruity with a slightly grassy stinch, some sweetness letting through, but the bitterness does it’s job very well and could easily be mistaken for an ipa, as I later read the label said too. No points for guessing the aftertaste. Yup, fruity, grapefruit mostly, lasting, and a very good first beer for the day. kalervo (1041) - FINLAND - JUL 14, 2013
Decent Danish quality. Quite strong bodied APA with well balanced hoppiness. Gubihumle (610) - Nørre Aaby, DENMARK - DEC 28, 2015
Den blomsteragtige, lyse smag der ind imellem minder om en let hvidvin, krydret med lyse malte og frugt gør denne øl til noget helt særligt. Tak til Indslev. Christian (13921) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2012
