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!

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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
