400ml on-tap at Mama Ludbas restaurant, Copenhagen (44 Danish Krone):
A basic & fairly average pale lager overall here, this one was drinkable but fairly light overall for the most part. There was some nice malts & a little sweetness in short bursts throughout but not much else grabbed my attention & it seemed too much like a regular macro lager for my liking; I can't imagine it's one I'll go for again to be honest.

The colour is yellow with a tint of gold (6 EBC), the liquid is clear. The three finger head is off-white and compact; it leaves thick lacing on the glass while sinking down.

The smell is sweet with bitter-fruity notes of grapefruit, orange peel, green bananas and a touch of wine gums. Highly balanced.

The taste is highly balanced, too: Sweet clean malts with a touch of caramel, grapefruit hops, smooth bitterness and hints of oranges and peach candy. Light to medium body. The aftertaste brings some alcohol, citric peels, biscuits and lemons. Balance? Yes. Lingering bitter-fruity notes in the finish.

The carbonation is strong (like a lager carbonation is supposed to be), the small long-lived bubbles are fresh. The liquid is semi-smooth.

I had this beer back in 2006 and gave it a raving 4,42 review. 10 years later, it is still a great interpretation of the modern pale lager.
