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.

Beese (1667) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2014
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Slightly passed its best before. Poured a hazy copper colour with a thin off-white head. Woody aroma with some butterscotch and dried fruit. Initial flavours of caramel, lemongrass and ginger. The finish was orange peal, toffee and coriander. Flavourings were fairly bold in this, would have been nice to have been able to pair it with some dim sum.

GoufCustom (805) - HONG KONG - JAN 2, 2014


330 ml bottle bought at Craftissimo in Tsim Sha Tsui East.

Clear golden honey amber colour with some dirt-like yeast sediments; One finger head with thick, crumpety off white foam which lasts for 2 minutes; Excellent sticky lacing with slight carbonation; Fragrant sweet aroma of ale malt, with strong lemongrass, coriander, grapefruit peels, yeast, spices and lemon; Light sweet taste of light ale malt, with light grapefruit zest, spices, bread, dry crackers, yeast, liquorices, lime and sharp grassy hops; Medium body. Dry and pretty slick palate; Mouth feel is light pale ale, grapefruit taste is only in light zest. Really strong lemongrass character, zesty and spicy. Also really dry and biscuit. Hmmm… Hoppiness is grapefruit zest nose, bitter lime, liquorices and sharp grassy taste. Pretty astringent with lasting medium bitter finish; Dry after taste. Light crisp and quite bitter to mouth.

Comments: A light brew with strong lemongrass and coriander in nose than in taste. Very dry and crisp. Pretty refreshing but pretty light weight. Pair well with any kind of meals not just dim sum. So-so, and I wish it carries a bit more weight.

Botella de 33 cl en el lupulo. Mayo de 2012. Sabores cítricos (lima, limón, pimienta...) y especiados en una cerveza de cuerpo ligero que se bebe sin ningún problema. Muy sencilla. Una curiosidad sin más.

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 (5088) - 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.
