3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Mikkeller Shop, Stefansgade, Copenhagen; bottled Aug 2013
Muddy dull amber color with generous compact head. Strong aroma of British yeast, somehow beesy and cheesy; very light citrusy hops. Good body strength, smooth mouthfeel; the flavor tends to be rather yeasty, with moderate sweetness in the front, but becoming drier in the end because of some astringency; strong bitterness, not excessive; the hops give some resins and some unfresh fruity touch.
Not bad, but very rough.

Tap. Hazy orange color. Small size, off-white head, stays. Alcohol, fruity, grapefruit, juicy, hops in aroma. Weird aroma. Alcohol, hops, fruity, fruit-flesh in taste. Puke-like bitterness in aftertaste. Not for me.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap (Drink Baar, Tallinn)
Hazy orange, small off white head. Odd minerally aroma. Hoppy too, but the minearls dominate. Watery for itís strength, over-carbonated to hell and back. Massive mixed peel cakey taste, some muscvado caramelliness too. As you swallow, itís jus perfect. Nice resiny bitter finish. Needs tweaks to be really good, at itís core itís great, but the carbonation is a fuck-up. 8 for taste - thatís fucking excellent, but the whole thing went a bit wrong.
