COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Vi er sikkert mange der længe har gået og troet, at det øl man drikker til asiatisk mad, skal være tyndt og på kanten af ligegyldigt. Men sådan behøver det ikke være længere. I hvert fald ikke hvis man tager på Ricemarket eller Kiin Kiin. For der kan man nemlig bestille en Dim Sum fra Mikkeller til sin mad. Kiin Kiin er en af to thai-rasturanter i verden, der har en stjerne i den franske Michelinguide. Det er Kiin Kiins chef Henrik Yde Andersen og Mikkel Borg Bjergsø der i fællesskab har snakket sig frem til, hvordan Dim Sum skulle smage, før Mikkeller bryggede den. Dim Sum er en lager der er delikat krydret med citrongræs og koriander. English: Pilsner-style beer brewed with coriander and lemongrass.

dfearnley (940) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 26, 2014
Bottle to pint glass Aroma of apple, orange, grapefruit, sprite, and caramel; very fruity and nectary sweet. Slightly hazy light amber with a 3 mm long lasting, creamy, off white head. Taste is lemongrass, malt, apricot, and bitterness. This isn’t great, but it’s still interesting.

TBone (12544) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 10, 2014
Tap at Beer Hunters. Deep clear amber color, small off-white head. Aroma has herbs, caramel and lemongrass. Light-bodied. Light palate. Soapy dish wash cleanser flavor. Light herbal note. Caramel. Perharps ok with spicey Chinese food but way too "perfumic" for my liking.

Garrold (1227) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2014
Bottle from StarmoreBoss, Sheffield. Hazy, amber. Big, bubbly, white head. Aroma is sticky malt. Light spice. Taste is fruity dry. Well carbonated, but accentuates the thin palate. Lemongrass comes through, though. Dry and fairly bitter on the finish.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy amber with an off-white head. Aroma of lemongrass and coriander, some pale malts and dough and a little bitterness. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent beer.

tricksta_p (1044) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUN 3, 2014
Aroma of light malt, citrus, coriander, spices, lemongrass, light vegginess. Flavour is light malty sweetness and spices. Curious brew, definitely reminiscent of certain Asian dishes but I can’t pinpoint it.

andyhwcinc (1434) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Purchased at Mikkeller & Friends in Copenhagen, DK; enjoyed at my hotel room area in Stockholm, SW. Appearance is a lightly brownish gold with a very fizzy and frothy light tan head. Aroma definitely has an Asian flair, with a bit of soy sauce, spice, lemongrass, green tea, smells pretty good. Taste goes down nicely, has a definite lemongrass finish, nice and dry, there’s a nice light pilsner malty finish as well. I think this is a pretty good one, wish I had this with food, but that’s alright.

Brandman (2068) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 29, 2014
Semiclear copper body, white head. Aroma has grind coriander seed, quite a lot. Bit celery. Some lemons too. The flatness from the spices is quite overwhelming.

mjs (4544) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 26, 2014
(Keg at Ølhuset Stockholm, Helsinki, 20140426) The beer poured deep amber and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had sweetness, caramel and grain. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, sweetness, caramel, malts and sweetness. Aftertaste was sweet. Perhaps this beer would match a portion of Chinese food but as itself its quite boring and disappointing.
