A very pleasant lager well worth repeating!

The pour held plenty of promise and potential! A beautiful, intense, rich colour that hovered halfway between gold and copper was, if I do say so, duplicated beautifully by the product people on the can itself. A very modest head dissipated quickly but left some nice lacing that was replenished with each sip I took.

The aroma, while hardly unique or outstanding, was a pleasant combination of corn and sweetness ... sweet corn, I suppose, is the better description. The bitterness of the hops added a distinct tang to the flavour and the carbonation, while modest, was long-lasting and added a pleasant tactile sensation to the drinking as well.

Not only was this a beer I would go back to for a second try but I wouldn't hesitate to pull back two or three in a row if I was in a beer-drinking mood during a Sunday afternoon barbecue on a nice warm day.

When I reviewed Asahi beer, I suggested that it didn't distinguish itself from the crowd in any other way than being remarkably pleasant adn thirst-quenching. While Asahi and Denmark's Faxe Amber are distinctly different in flavour, they are alike in terms of their having a repeatable pleasing flavour that is not particularly remarkable or even definable.

Recommended.

That is a lovely color and it sounds refreshing, too.  Thanks for sharing this great review, Paul!

About this beer

Wiki

FAXE Amber has a generous golden colour. With its full and rich taste, characterised by slight sweetness and a pleasantly bitter touch, it is an extraordinary experience. The taste very much resembles that of dark lager.
