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.

Slightly hazy amber colour, off-white head. Spicy aroma, ginger, lemon and malts. Bitter flavour, malts, hops and lemongrass. Bitter spicy finish, coriander and malts. Quite all-right.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1572) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 1, 2013
5% bottle 30DKK from Mikkeller & Friends. Lovely cloudy honey pour with a decent head of foam. Great spicy lemongrass aroma. Full body, lemon & coriander tastes which does go really well with Asian noodles. Great easy drinking stuff!

Sigmund (4932) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 20, 2013
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.

WheatKing (1233) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 8, 2013
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.

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. This is an amber beer with a floral lemon and violet fruity flavour, sweet herb notes and more floral notes on the warming finish.

reebtogi (4033) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 24, 2013
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.

MiP (13477) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2013
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.
