Bottle. High white creamy and lasting head. Hazy dark orange body. Relatively mild and hops dominated fruity aroma. Mild and hoppy flavor without the aggressivemess of other Mikkeller beers. Still the aftertaste is long and bitter. Carbonation low. The label claims it to be a gusler beer. Well I think it is much better than "ordinary" beers and a beer to be enjoyed.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Drunk to celebrate my rating number 9800. A slighltly hazy amber beer with a medium light tan head. The aroma is lovely hoppy with notes of grass and grapefruit, with underlying notes of malt and caramel. The flavor is sweet - but right from the beginning the body seems thin - my guess is that the final gravity is quite low - I’d have liked a bit stronger body - afterall the beer rings in at 6% ABV. After the thin body, the very dry finish is noticed next - the finish is also very bitter - which is nice and refreshing. And finally when You’ve grasped the relative thinness and the enormous bitterness, then You pick up notes of grapefruit peal, fresh cut grass, and lemon, on a subdued background of malt and caramel. There is very little sweetness to balance the harsh bitterness. Good - drinkable and OK refreshing for a hop head like me - but I know Mikkeller beers I’d rather drink all night.

Draught at Plan B
Beautiful hazy amber color. Wonderful hoppy aroma, fruity and grassy. Medium body, with strong caramel flavor and toffee, and very strong hopping. The final is drier, the hop aftertaste is a bit fruity and oily, very good. Deeply pleasant.

(Bottle 50 cl) Courtesy of Mikkeller. Very hazy, amber golden with a creamy, off-white head. Fantastic fresh aroma of peach and citrus. Medium body with very dry caramel accents and a dry bitterness. Very fresh and drinkable indeed - and the closest Mikkeller has come to a session beer so far... 120107

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
All Others pale 6% and my # 2200 rating.
Bottle. Courtesy of Mikkeller [Amager – Mikkeller Brew session @ Amager Bryghus] Large thick and creamy head that really lasted. Beautiful appearance I must say with somewhat cloudy golden colour with an orange glow. Excellent lacework. Very exceptional nose of passion fruit, pineapple, sweet grape, apricot, citrus, sweet flower like never before. Some underlying malty notes and fruit. Texture was impressive smooth as silk. Very full bodied with an average to lively carbonation with a very dry texture. Dry and slightly bitter floral finish that lingers forever. Well done Mikkel. 9 / 5 / 8 / 4 / 16 = 4.2
