330 ml can into shaker.

A- Golden, honey color. Clarity is great, but the white head dies.

S- Grassy/grain, some sweetness in the nose. A bit fruity, with some earthy/and mildly spicy hops.

T- Light grain and grass. Again, light hop with earthy characteristics.

M- Body is light, with a crisp finish.

O- Maybe a slight step above Tuborg Grøn. A little more flavor and aroma. Still light, don't-care-what-I'm-drinking kinda beer.

330ml bottle from kiosk in Copenhagen (10.50 Dkr):
This one was a fairly basic Vienna style lager but at the same time it definitely exceeded my expectations given I had thought it was another pale lager when I cracked the bottle open; especially consider it was described as a "Traditional Pilsner' on the bottle. Thankfully it was a little better than what I'd thought going in, there was some nice sweetness & a few basic malts to keep things interesting without it being a classic.

Purchased in Iceland, where the label said it was made with real Icelandic water. I think this is a different version, brewed at Egil.

Anyhow, it was a very solid example of a Euro pils. Fresh, crisp barley with mild grain complexities and no esters. The nearest referent I can muster is Heineken, only this has a much more pronounced hop bite as it finishes.

Tried this beer as well as Carlsberg Pilsner at their old brewery in Copenhaven. This was definitely the better beer.

Had a pint of this on-tap while travelling in Denmark on a patio in the shade in downtown Copenhagen. Cost was 50 Danish kroner. Served cold into an unmarked pint glass.

Appearance - a rich coppery amber color. Rather clear with few bubbles. Minimal head too. Still a very appetizing beer on a warm summers day.

Smell - minimal aromas, some lager yeasty aromatics, and some mild malts, maybe with a trace of caramel.

Taste - crisp, mildly bitter with some malt influence throughout every sip. Hop presence is very low, but still comes of crisp and clean.

Mouthfeel - smooth and clean yet not too refined that would cause the beer to lose its edge. Mildly dry finish and medium carbonation throughout.

Overall - better than I expected. Missing some of the bigger hop presence of other Vienna lagers I've had (Boston lager) this still delivered a very tasty and satisfying punch. Maybe slightly enhanced by the fact this was on a patio on vacation in Denmark on a beautiful summer day, but this is something I would repeat if available enact home.
