3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
It’s hazy coppery bronze with a huge and long lasting head. The aroma has notes of spruce, exotic fruits and malt. The flavor is sweet with loads of fruit notes, spruce, caramel and malt, and the finish is fairly bitter - lovely!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Draught at Hádanka, 20130419) The beer poured reddish orange and cloudy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had clother plaster, fruitiness, citricness and herbalness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were frutiness, herbalness, tangerine, citricness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A combination of hops that didn’t work together so well, unfortunately. Interesting experiment in any case.

Aroma: citrus, pine, strawberries.
Appearance: amber, little hazy, nice foam.
Taste: resin, ctirus and strawberries, medium bitterness, nice balanced.
Palate: medium carbonation, long resin finish.
Great beer, well balanced. The biggest disadvantage is alcohol, which is not well covered.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Good Spirit Co, Glasgow (330ml, £4):
A balanced citrus and grapefruit aroma with light pine hops and floral notes. There is a light grassy hops aroma along with some tropical fruits and caramel.
Orange amber with a two fingers tall, bubbly head that is a slightly off-white colour and holds very well and leaves a great lacing too.
Floral and pine hops with a light amount of bitterness, some good citrus and tropical fruit flavours such as peach, grapefruit and some passion fruit. Again a very nice blend that goes down great.
Smooth with a light citrus tang and a touch of bitterness, there is light medium carbonation and a mild bitter mouthfeel to this one. The beer is quite refreshing and goes down great with good balance.
An excellent and perfectly balanced beer with all the flavours working well together and complimenting each other perfectly. A very refreshing with a nice, fruity and light bitter taste that goes down incredibly easily.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours hazy amber....small tan head.
Aroma is bready, fruity....slightly cheesy/funky.
Flavour is malty, not overly bitter at all,
The hop mix evens out to a fairly neautral state and the low ABV keeps the sweetness down
Not the hop-bomb you’d think, just a very nicely done balancing act from Mikkeller.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught. Pours clear orange with a white head. Aroma is floral and citrus hops with passion fruit and grapefruit with some pine as the main aromas. Mouthfeel is slim and medium carbonated and has some sweet maltiness. Flavor has the main components of aroma with pine being the dominant flavor and having some additional dill. Aftertaste is piney bitterness with dill. Otherwise great, but I personally dislike the sweetness combined with pine and dill a bit.
