KnutAlbert (6364) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 9, 2011
On tap at Håndverkerstuene, Oslo. Soft and inviting, yet a bitter edge underneath giving far more character than I associate with this style. Hazy gold, thin head. Some mint, herbal dry finish.

espenra (916) - Kurland, NORWAY - FEB 8, 2011
On tap. Hazy light golden colour. Small to no head. Aroma is hoppy with notes og citrus and tropical fruits. Flavour is fresh and bitter. Lot’s of hops and bitterness. Tropical fruits again. Some creaminess perhaps, but this is more reminiscent of an IPA. Medium long aftertaste.

LordDrachen (116) - reggio emilia, ITALY - FEB 8, 2011
Quite interesting. Amber hazy ale, average white head. Grapefruit aroma, intense hoppy as usual. Some mature "yellow" fruits aroma (peaches) is also present. Strong bitterness with a light round sweetness. Light to medium body. Not so "cream ale", very "Mikkeller".

JohnBarleycorn (537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 7, 2011
Bottle. Murky light-orange with an enticing creamy off-white head. Bold aromas of orange, vanilla and pine. Flavour dominated by a piney bitterness, pineapple and pink grapefruit. Very, very enjoyable.

Japalo (1391) - DENMARK - FEB 4, 2011
UPDATED: APR 9, 2011 Citrus grass aroma with a pale yellow hazy appearance. Light sour-bitter hoppy finish. Fresh southen-europe style under the burning dessert sun. In north Europa the taste longs for the coming spring and summer. Pleasant but prefer more dryhopping. May have been stronger brewed 16/11/09!

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - FEB 2, 2011
Pours slightly cloudy yellow with medium off-white head. Hoppy and citrussy aroma. Flavour is hopped grass with a malty aftertaste. Ultimately this is slightly overhopped for me.

kappldav123 (5369) - GERMANY - FEB 1, 2011
Thanks to yespr for this one! The bottle looks good, the beer in the glass also. Very zippy, huge head. Starts quite dry, woody-hoppy, a bit grasy-sourish. Finish milder, not as dry as the beginning. Well balanced and grasy-spicy finish. Nice!

Brix (633) - DENMARK - FEB 1, 2011
Tasted 2011-02-01. Pours hazy, pale yellow with white head. Aroma: Fresh hops. Taste: Very fresh - and only moderately bitter - hops. Very tasty, mild (Mikkeller wise) beer. I think it would make a good intro to hoppy beers.

Kriegbaum (845) - Randers, DENMARK - JAN 27, 2011
Flaske 33 cl. Ugennemsigtig gylden hælde med et mælke hvidt skær, med et lille hvidt hoved. Aroma af malt og citrus. Smag af malt, humle og grapefrugt. En frisk og lidt sammensnerpende mundfornemmelse, med let bitter grapefrugt smag i afslutningen.

DruncanVeasey (7424) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2011
330ml bottle. Clouded apricot almost like a witbier, low and uneven white head lacing considerably. Aroma of lime juice, blackcurrant and perfumed exotic fruits; good crisp flavour with a sparkle of fizz, a perfumed, soapy bitterness suggesting crystallised lemon peel, some peanut husk and a squirt of neat mango cordial. Not sure what the hell a cream ale is, or if I’ve just drank one but this is a beautiful, zesty beer I could see off in some quantity.
