3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Date: February 19, 2012 Mode: Bottle Source: Heritage via BVery Description: Opaque orangish brown pour with minimal head. Aroma is malty/caramel, cardboard and some musky basement thing going on. I think this is well past its prime because taste is not what I am guessing it should have been. Basically a malty sweetness with a very slight bitterness in finish.

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2013 Bottle. Old bottle - $1 discounted, and there was dust on the bottle when I bought it. Ooof - well, here’s what we have here in Feb. 2012. Hazy orange pour with a small soapy white head. Aroma and taste of caramel, cardboard, and some citrus hops. Wish it was fresh.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a huge white head with good retention that settled to some nice lacing. Aroma was mostly floral and citrus hops with a hint of toasted malt. Taste is dominated by floral and citrusy hops with some malty sweetness to balance things out. This is a very enjoyable pale ale with a medium body and good carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle in a shaker. Pours amber with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of pale and caramel malts with lots of citrusy/floral hops and a little cereal. Flavor about the same, but the bottle might be a little old. Average texture. A good beer of this style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Gusher! Pour is dark brown with a big beige head. Good retention and lacing. Aroma indicates this bottle is not so fresh: cheesy hops, grapefruit, pine, resin, some caramel. Taste is quite bitter, more cheesy hops, nuts, pine. Palate is quite bitter, oily. Came off as unbalanced but I’m guessing the trip across the Atlantic didn’t do it any favors.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle purchased while in Chicago. Dark amber brown color, big bubbly head. Aroma was a tad sweet for my liking. Hops prevailed but the malt was a little too up front here. A good beer from Mikkeller but certainly not his finest.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle @ home. Pretty clear, red orange appearance with a fairly small off white head. Grapefruit, light Belgian candy, mild to medium hoppy, bready malty flavor. Fairly bready, light to medium grapefruit, pretty malty flavor with a mildly bitter, bready, dry finish. The color, aroma, and flavor all seem a little off.
