2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at Ricemarket restaurant in Copenhagen. A dim sum dinner was served. Reddish / deep orange colour, moderate off-white head. Herbal aroma and flavour, but not as fresh character as Mikkeller Kiin Kiin, which we also had, and found to be a better choice with the dim sum food.

Bought for my fiancee at BREW in Bangkok as she’s a lemongrass fan... she ended up not liking this. I did though. Nose of fruit, pine, spice. Flavour is herb, pine, lots of spritz. The lemongrass acts as a freshening agent, I think, making this feel really light. It’s not front and centre like ginger in a ginger beer. Really enjoyable in the background, the way I like my spice/herb beers.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle pours a slightly hazy pale amber color with a finger of white head that leaves some very thin lacing on the glass. Aroma is lemongrass and citrus with some coriander. Taste is a lemon and grass bitterness with a light tartness and a caramel malty sweetness. Quite a nice beer for the style and definitely enjoyed every sip. Recommended.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, 5.0%. Fruity aroma, not really hoppy, but a bit like burnt rubber. Cloudy amber colour. Small stable off-white head. The flavour is yeasty with a low bitterness. Slightly spicy, seems more like mild lemon than lemongrass or coriander. Too yeasty.

Bottle @ home. Aroma is very sweet and spicy of a candylike coriander. Not much else. Flavour is tangy spicy very bubbly candy like coriander with a little byte. Weird and not my thing.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Kiin Kiin, CPH. Hazy gold/amber pour, with thin lasting white head. Lemongrass dominates the aroma, some citrus juice, coriander and light malt sweetness too. Lemongrass fills your whole mouth upon tasting, coriander hits next as does some fairly biscuity pale malt. Very herbal. No real bitterness to speak of. Lingering lemongrass and herbs in the aftertaste. Great with Asian food, probably wouldn't have another bottle on its own though.
