I found this to be rather rank and unappealing. Much better choices out there, even among the "classics".

Overall this beer didn't do it for me, it has a funky smell, the taste and body is too late for my liking,

1000 ml can poured into a pint glass

A: Pours a straw pale yellow with a bright white head, good amount of carbonation, no retention or lacing.

A: Subtle aromas of lemon grass, grain, spice, honey, bready malts.

T: Grain, spice, light bitterness in the middle, finish has lemon and bready malts, crisp and refreshing taste.

M: Light bodied with a crisp, clean finish, very light on the palate, easy to drink.

O: Not that flavorful or aromatic but definitely very drinkable, would pair well with a hot summer southern CA day while working around the house or grilling.

L: brilliant gold under a 1/2" layer of white foam with moderate to poor retention

S: light bread crumb, traces of hop spice and a hint of sulfur

T: Lightly sweet bread crumb leads the flavors with mild hop spice, and a trace of apple. On the finish, mild bitterness and slight acid tartness fade into a gentle drying

F: The body is light and the carbonation is medium high

O: The beer is fairly well balanced and drinkable but the brewer should do more to protect the beer from becoming light struck.

Clean, smooth, whimpy and easy drinking pilsner.

A poor man's Heineken. Ok, a poor already-intoxicated man's Heineken. Sorry, I just don't know how such a taste is 'good'. But, to each his Danish own.

I bought a thousand milliliter can of this and it poured out a clear yellow color with a thick somewhat creamy head. It had a very strong sour grain smell with a little smell of malt and hops typical of a heavy lager. The taste was malty and metallic with a light taste of hops but was mostly overpowered by a wheaty/grainy taste. The aftertaste was very metallic and unpleasant.
