Grovlam (4208) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2007
Bottle. Head was small foamy white with and average last. Slight lacing in glass. Body was clear light sparkling with an amber reddish colour. Aroma was light, grain, hay, grass. Light bodied with a very thin texture and a soft carbonation. Flavour was slightly bitter with some balancing sweetness. Light bitter finish. I have to agree with HenrikSoegaard, this was a ok beer, but not 2.7!

thewolf (12300) - Kolding, DENMARK - JAN 30, 2007
Pour very clear pale yellow. Aroma is sweet, with lots of malt. Flavour is definitely more hoppy than the aroma. A Citric hoppyness giving the beer a sour edge.
