Don't know what went wrong here, but this is the only beer i've ever brought back and told them to make singles out of it. I couldn't even drink the stuff. Maybe if it had enough alcohol to get you buzzed i could choke it down, but it just isn't worth considering. Sour bikini may be good too but im afraid to try it.

Draft at Tørst in Brooklyn.

Pours a pale, slightly hazy light golden yellow color with a half finger white head that quickly settles.  Minimal spotty lacing left behind.

Slightly floral, earthy hop aroma with a subtle malt backbone.  Very bland with not much else going on.  

Light bodied with a subtle crisp hop presence countered by pale malt and subtle fruit notes.   Slightly crisp and bitter with some resinous pine and light fruit flavor.  Pale malt, bread and cracker underneath but this bee is very watered down and boring.  Just some one dimensional hop flavor and a faint pale malt backbone. Not very interesting.

09/29/13 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Don't ask me why I tried this. I should have known better. Taste is serious grapefruit/citrus with no counterpoint. If this is for those that fear craft beer...bad move. This should seal the deal & send them back to the safety of the known.

Sorry, but this has nothing going for it.

It's not bad, hard to describe, but like seltzer up front, with a "hole" in the middle, like the taste just disappears, then finishes crisp with a bit of citrus/hops. I could drink em at the beach naybe, but not at the astronomical price ($13/6pk + t&d), kind of disappointed

12 oz can into a pint glass.

A: Pours a lightly hazed amber color. The head is a finger high, with an eggshell shade. Retention is okay for the style, and as the head recedes, leaves behind some webs of lacing on the glass.

S: At first, it seems too mild: All I get are a kiss of piny hops. Letting it open up, though, will reveal some more floral tones, along with a bit of crackery malt. For 2.7%, it's damn good.

T: The flavor, though, is pretty much hop water. Lots of bitterness without much in the way of malt. It is what it is, no more, no less.

M: Really light and watery - there's no doubt this is 2.7%. With plentiful carbonation, it goes down very easily. This feels quite insubstantial.

O: Being an interesting experiment is the best I can say about this offering. Given its price point (fantastic by typical Danish standards, above average by 'Murican ones), I can't see any reason to revisit this - unless it was offered to me freely, of course.

2.7/5: 100% hop water

Appearance: Golden orange with yeast in suspension. The white head is large and pillowy
Aroma: A cracker malt note with DME homebrew
Taste: Very little but watered down crackers and a slight semblance of citrus hops
Mouthfeel: Very light and watery with a mediun-high carbonation
Overall: At 2.7%, this taste essentially like water with a pinch of malt to call it a beer

At 2.7%, you honestly can drink this all day and not get drunk. I got to try this at a local taproom; the fellow poured a small tulip(?) glass for everyone at the bar to try. Very light coloring. If you mix an average IPA with water, this is almost what you'd get. It has a very cut-down citrusy IPA taste for about a quarter of a second- then it washes away and you feel like you've drank some strange alcoholic water. Very easy to drink but I'd rather something with more character.
