From Boxbeers. In Teku glass. Watching Vaiana. Boring, flat, just some grassy and flowerly notes and even a bit on rancidness, but not enough to completely spoil the experience

Why is this stated as herbed/spiced beer on BA?

Anyhow, nice golden ale, floral, grassy, poured almost no head.
Decent beer.
3 out of 5 stars for me.

Pours gold with a small lasting head.
Nose shows strong grassy notes, almost skunk-like. Later on some very subtle elderflower comes out alongside some plain bready malt. Somewhat herbal and minty.
Flavours are different, showing prominent toasty notes alongside a little honey with hardly any elderflower, just a bit of green plant-like character.
Could use more carbonation.
Different to anything else I’ve tried, but not in a great way.

500ml bottle from Slowbeer, poured into a Lost Abbey tulip.

Big snake-liss hiss upon opening. Plenty of carbonation as it pours a clear, light golden colour with a very large white head of foam. Head is packed with small bubbles that quickly subside to a layer of film.

Smell is different. Can pick up the honey and elderflower. However, butterscotch is upfront, along with the elderflower and bush honey. Some herbally note comes through, a bit like coriander mixed with basil leaves, but more faint than dominant.

Taste is sort of what you are led to expect. Some honey sweetness, a bit of herbal bite later on as a little elderflower taste comes through.

Carbonation is a little much on this. Hits the feel a bit and makes it a touch thin early. Nice rasp from the elderflower late has you wanting another sip.

Clear pale golden colour with a small, creamy white head. Fair head retention. Good lacing.

Malt and plenty of diacetyl. Some citrus and earthy hops. Nice but the diacetyl is over the top.

Crisp malt with some moderately-low bitterness. Nice light floral hops. The diacetyl is here again but on the whole it is enjoyable.

Medium-light body with moderately-high carbonation. A bit fizzy but nice.

A decent ale with a small technical flaw. The floral hops and light malt are good but the diacetyl is not great.

Brewed with Honey and Elderflower and named for the Amagerfælled, a nature reserve outside Copenhagen.

Pours a very bright and perfectly clear golden colour, initially with a brutally fizzy and aerated head of white. This settles down to a centimetre or so of froth, but the carbonation is rampant, meaning that the head is continuously fed. Looks bright and vibrant, at least, but the carbonation is verging on comical.

Nose is musty and touched with green organics. A little clipped grass and a slight Belgian-style spice. Aromas of dried beans and raw cotton. All very rustic, but pleasant.

Taste is smooth and light, again, rather reminiscent of a light-bodied Belgian Pale. Light crisp entry, with a touch of estery Belgian yeast. Finish is dry and a little grassy. Very light bodied, but the carbonation isn't nearly as bloating or insistent as I thought it would be.

It's a very decent brew, but a subtle one. It's actually very light and not all that complex, but it's incredibly smooth and crisp. It has enough flavour to keep you interested, but not so much that they could hide flaws beneath it.
