Visited feb. 4th.: Cosy and small room with wooden panels on the walls. Chairs and benches. Friendly staff. Great selection and the possibility of drinking cask. A place to revisit and a must see, when in Odense.
Located in a quite back lane in the very centre of Odense, this cozy quality pub offers a perfect refuge to a tourist, far from the madding crowd (and yet so close). I visited it with Christian on a quiet, early Sunday afternoon, which was most possibly the reason why we accounted for 50% for all the guests. The staff are knowledgeable and very friendly and service-minded. The selection on tap is really impressive for a Danish pub outside the capital. Among some twenty taps there I saw (and tasted) delicious brews like Evil Twin Imperial Biscotti Break and Crouch Vale Amarillo (on cask!). The prices are not exactly low, but, to be fair, there is no reason why very good beer should be sold below its value. I will definitely visit the place again next time I am in Odense.
Updated October 2013. The place to go for Ratebeerians visiting Odense. One of few places in Denmark to get English cask ale, but these days the ever changing other taps may be more interesting. Lots of Danish micros from the best breweries, along with a few Americans, Belgians and Germans. The cask selection changes reasonably often - sometimes a lot of Fullers, sometimes nice little rarities. The bottle selection nowadays is also rotating, typically imperial stout and lambik.
And it’s not just a beer geek hang-out, lots of locals go here just for a good time and a beer. Thursday to Saturday it’s crowded in the evening. Service is knowledgable, and the beer is usually beautifully served.
The place to go if you want to go to a bar in Odense, but the selection is pretty much the same all the time, not much renewel. Friendly staff. Unfortunately some of the tapped beers has this buttery smell and taste. It’s pretty often actually.
