Pours out of the bottle a bit hazy, with some sediment in it. Not much to the smell, standard lager with a little bit of wet paper in the back. The taste is pretty fresh, with a hint of white bread. Not bad at all for a macro lager. Mouthfeel is light, with slightly less Thanks average carbonation. This is a good beer for summer, will probably buy a couple more to have while I barbecue.

The colour is gold with a tint of orange (7 EBC), the liquid is a bit hazy with lots of floaties (I rolled the bottle and shook the yeast sediment as instructed by the label). The large beige head is airy. It sinks slowly leaving no lacing.

The smell is sweet with distinct biscuit flavours. Hints of caramel malt. Some flowery hops, some butter. Very low bitterness.

The taste is quite mild, but I do notice that special Bavarian sweet biscuit-yeast-flowery Kellerbier flavour. The mild bitterness is very flowery, and there are some buttery notes, too. The aftertaste is basically the same with some added sweetness. The finish is sweet, almost insipid.

The carbonation is mild, the few bubbles small and smooth. The liquid is a bit sticky.

A decent, mild and cautious kellerbier. Probably an good introduction to the style for Joe Sixpack.

A clouded dark brownish straw colored brew, an off-white head with some lacing and small curtains.

Smelling of grass and nettles, some spices and a whiff of green apples.

Starting with sweet loaf of bread, some lemon marmalade, slightly yeasty spicy.

Little carbonation, very small bubbles, a soft texture, medium body, a slightly dry finish.

In all not a bad lager, and a very good Falcon.

A: Pours murky pale brown with a small white light head. Rather slow dissipation leaves some lacings.

S: Rather rough, malty but a bit unbalanced. A bit roasted. Bitter hops. An artificial off-smell ruins it a bit. Smoked ham in the back. Grainy. Nettles.

T: Roasted rich malt, bready. Some sweetness. A bit rough. Bitter hops. Nettles. A bit like swedish crisp-bread.

M: medium to full body, low carbonation and nice aftertaste; dry bitterness.

O: Nice, really nice. Considering that this is produced by a really large danish ( swedish) macro brewery - fantastic!
