330ml bottle. IPA Punk Pokal glass. Enjoyed on jun´12. Greenish brown –artificial tint?- headed by white, close, fairly lasting froth. Smells as an Industrial Dunkel lager with slightly metallic hues. Toasted malt, low bitter, flavor with caramel & cask wood hues is ruined by metal & harsh grain. Medium body, heavy carbonation. Bland mouthfeel & fat drinkability. (368 characters)

While walking through Copenhagen on on our way to Christiania, we were getting very parched and decided to stop at a bar (Sofie Kaelderen) that had tables along a lovely canal.

We saw the man next to us drinking this beer and asked the barmaid to bring us one too. Maybe it was the long walk or the heat but this beer went down very nicely.

The beer is a dark mahogany brown and created a rich 3 finger head on my glass.

The smell was a bit nutty/fruity and hoppy.

The taste was pleasant and clean that started off dry and finished with a bit of the nutty/fruity flavor present in the smell.

The mouthfeel was crisper than expected from the color. Not too thick but not watery either.

Drinkability - Very drinkable! Again, maybe it was the walking or the heat or the lovely canal-front seats but I could have stayed and drunk a few more. I finished mine and then another and wanted more but time was pressing so we moved on. I will be looking for this beer but I doubt I will find it here in California. If you have the chance, give this beer a try. I do not think you will be disappointed. (1,110 characters)

3.15/5  rDev n/a
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Ingredients: Malt and hops, top fermenting yeast. Additives: Colouring matter (caramel), carbon dioxide and antioxidant (ascorbic acid). It doesn’t really sound too well, does it?

The colour is dark amber/copper; the high airy foam is quite firm and it slowly sinks down leaving some lacing.

The smell is strong. Fruity malts, some bitter-dry notes and a slight spicy (black pepper?) flavour.

The taste is a little roasted with an interesting woody flavour (like it had been matured in wooden casks). A quickly passing earthy flavour is replaced by some nutty malt. The aftertaste is shorter than expected, there are however some malty flavours with a hint of apricots. The bitterness is present, but not much more.

The carbonation is strong, more like a Vienna lager than an English ale: Medium bubbles.

An odd beer, more like "a major lager brewery trying to produce an ale" than "an ale from a micro brewery". (932 characters)

500 ml bottle, bought in Vinens Verden, Odense, Denmark. An ale based on pilsener malts, with artificial colouring, hmmm? Filtered and pasteurised. Pours with a beautiful chestnut colour, with a good creamy tan head. Nice malty aroma with notes of caramel, oak and dried fruits, hints of roastiness and tobacco. Flavour is malty sweet with caramel, one-dimensional, minimal bitterness. Smooth and mellow, I expected something better than this. (443 characters)
