3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Taps Beer Bar, Changkat, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a hazy light amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is yeast, grain, light orange citrus. The flavour is moderate bitter with a woody hop, light resin, light marmalade orange palate and a lingering bitter finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation. A fruit beer??

330ml bottle shared by Finn. A rocky white head to an almost clear straw-golden body. A mild scent of tropical fruits on the nose. Fresh oranges and lemony hops to the flavour profile followed by bittersweet ending. Refreshing and easy to drink (at Finn’s place in Tromsø 24.10.2015).

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
It’s a 330ml bottle and is spot on for strength, coming in at 4.7%. It poured, perhaps with zero surprise, a pale, hazy orange colour with a 2-finger white head. Carbonation was reasonable, if not particularly strong. The aroma is heavily dominated by orange with just a subtle hint of light malt. It’s smooth on the palate with the taste coming across as a very fresh glass of orange juice. You wouldn’t think it was a Pilsner at all. But wait for it…The bitter hop-led citrus finish is complemented by an underlying dry, slight mineral edge.
Mikkeller have pulled it off again. Just. It may only really reveal its Pilsner roots at the very end but it’s still a very refreshing summer beer nonetheless.

Big off-white head with clear citrusy flavours. Doesn’t really taste like a lager, which is nice. From bottle at Ica maaseskjæret.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Mikkeller Tokyo for Mikkeller Running Club #2. Clear gold with a nice big off-white soapy head. Nose is all orange zest with some orange juice sweetness that is detectable. Taste is very similar with good juiciness. Fruity but not sweet with a nice crisp dry finish. Perfect after running the Mikkeller 5K.

Unclear orange golden color with a solid nice white head. Looks really inviting. Nice aroma. Oranges and citric hoppy. Mmmmm. Nice fresh bitterness and a semi dry texture. Lots of oranges that are well blended in here. Yummi. Citric and fruity also. Lovely lager.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from ICA Maaseskjæret, Bergen. Pours a near-clear pale golden body with a small white head. Nose is heavy citrus tones, pale malts, straw and hints of orange peel and floral notes. Taste is pale malts, straw, citrus, grass and hints of citric zest, floral notes and mild oranges. Light body, medium to high carbonation. Nice, light, drinkable and refreshing. Very citrusy without going overboard. Pretty much on the target they aimed for, I guess.
