Yellow with a fragmented head. Floral with further notes of lime, lemongrass and coriander. Very refreshing with more kick to it than a regular Asian lager.

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!

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.
