500 ml bottle, as Thisted Claes, from Voldby Købmandsgård. ABV is 4.6%. Clear golden brown to amber colour, moderate white head. The moderate aroma notes of decaying fruit, band-aid and yeast, with a hint of caramel. The flavour is moderately fruity with a hnt of caramel, but is not too sweet. A fairly decent bitterness in the finish.

A: The beer is crystal clear amber in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high beige head that quickly died down, leaving a patch of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of sweet toasted malts are present in the nose along with some hints of toffee.
T: The taste follows the smell and is predominantly malty and sweet with flavors of caramel and toasted malts plus toffee. The malts seem to be more in the way of the malt extract variety. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied, a little thin and clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer seems to be a little lighter in body compared to other beers in the style but is a nice choice if you like something that has sweetness.

The colour is deep amber. The two finger head makes a fizzing sound when poured. It sinks slowly down to a firm off white head leaving some lacing.

The smell is malty and bitter with nutty notes of roasted malt. There are some mild sour flavours, too.

A generous amount of malt dominates the taste. There are some roasted nutty flavours and some grassy notes. Medium body. A somewhat metallic simple bitterness builds to a surprisingly bitter aftertaste, balanced with some sweet malt and a hint of raisins.

The carbonation is fresh with lots of medium-sized bubbles. The liquid is smooth.

Normally, a Danish “Classic” tends to be a richer version of the breweries’ standard “Gold” lager. This one is not like the other ones: It is a full-fledged Vienna lager. Still, it got those notorious hoppy-mineral notes of Thisted Brewery.

Thanks to my bestest biggest bro for bringing this back for me to sample.
Aroma shows a somewhat rich malt quality that mellows to a more sweet watery state that seems thin.
Brown amber with reds. Water clear. Small head that disappeared quickly.
Taste is fairly malty with a striking dryness that's only slightly bitter. Runs clean start to finish. Nice sweetness up fromt. Darker malt in the middle to end, but not toast or roast. A little nutty.
Pretty thin. Quite a bit of bubbles with some bite. Fullness from carbonation. Extra dryness makes it crisp and refreshing.
This is alright. Not quite light, not quite dark.

3.17/5  rDev +0.6%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: light brown, good clarity, poor head formation and no retention of the foam that does appear, a bit bland looking

Aroma: malt, Danish rye bread, continental hops, a bit toasty, hint of roast

Flavor: dusty malts, hint of roast, quite dry, mild hop flavor and a quick pass of bitterness, finishes dry with a vegetal bitterness and some roast in the aftertaste

Mouthfeel: medium body, prickly carbonation, minerally, a bit rough in texture

Other comments: Label says this beer embodies Thy (the section of Denmark where it is brewed) and the four malt types in it, I can get a sense of the coastal region of Thy, but it's not really much of a "malt fest". In fact, the hops are more noticeable than the malts. This beer is somewhat bland on it's own, but it goes great with food.
