Bought this bottle at 'Meny' in Trondheim, Norway - I dont think the bottle was kept too well and this may very well have influenced the beer.

A - Golden amber, great 1.5 finger head with nice retention.

S - Citrus hops and caramel malts, I also detect some off flavors: green apples - acetaldehyde? maybe even some very slight diacetyl

T - Like it smells. The flavors are fairly stable and even all the way through, with a firm bitterness. Some acetaldehyde off flavors I think.

M - medium low carbonation, smooth and creamy for the abv.

O - A lager apa? This would be a nice beer if not for the off flavors, for now I'm not sure what the lager part brings to the table - the only yeast driven flavors I get are off-flavored.

Appearance: It has a nice hazy deep golden/orange color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately and leaves great lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of pine resins, citrus, some grassiness, floral hops and some grainy/toasty malts.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some bitter pine resins, a nice grassiness, some citrus, slight floral notes, grainy/toasty malts and a touch of caramel.

Mouthfeel: It has a low carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by good flavors and aromas.

A lager that really wants and tries to be an American pale ale. Apparently it goes by the name The Danish Dream in the US, due to market legal reasons.

The aroma is dominated by a blast of hops. The taste as well, plus some extra heavy (almost stale) bitterness. This "crypto-APA" was among the strangest thing I have ever drunk.

Do not understand the idea of ​​a bottom-fermented APA, but it’s also something that I like about this kind of cocky beer.
