3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2013 Keg at Friends of Ham, Leeds. Pours a hazy orange, two fingers of head. Aroma is really nice - breadiness, perfume, floral hops. Taste is nice too - citrus, some perfume, some wheaty breadiness and a touch of banana. Body is of course thin, nice clean, dry, bitter finish. For 1.9%, this is ridiculously impressive, and objectively, damn good too.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, shared december 6th 2012. Blond unclear body, white foamy head. Hoppy aroma, amarillo, with a light malty edge. taste is mostly hops, pine and grapefruit, high bitterness, probably due to this being 1,9% not having much malt to balance it out. Body is of course a bit thin, but for a low abv there’s nothing wrong with this.

It’s tasty and true to style. It’s really not a style I love, most wheat beers are usually just ok in my opinion. Although there are exceptions this is just another well crafted wheat ale that Im not really into. That said, I love Mikkellers beers, all of them, he’s my favorite brewer. This one is just not really for me, but not because I hate it its just ok in my opinion.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
In short: A moderately hoppy, yeasty and dusty dark blond low abv beer that doesn’t feel slim. Decent.
How: Bottle 330ml, consumed as fresh as possible a few weeks after purchase in North-America
The look: Cloudy pale golden-amber body topped by a large white head with medium retention
In long: Nose is moderately hoppy, a smell of dusty old rug coming out strong (yeast related I guess) and with fruity notes. Taste is dominated by the dusty yeast, this beer is a bowl of dusty yeast soup. The yeast presence helps create a body making you forget about the lack of malts but it also create a strange mouth drying sensation. Feels nourishing, which is quite unexpected for 2.9% beer. Hops do show up adding refreshing fruitiness with a mild juicy bitterness. A decent beer but a far cry from its ancestor Mikkeller Drink’in the Sun 10 which I really loved. Anyway to day is dec 22 2012 and apparently the word is supposed to end, however if my calculations are correct the world ended three years ago, my calculations are probably not correct.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Craft Clerkenwell - 27/11/12.
Hazed mid amber with a mahoooosive slightly off white head.
Nose is mango, pineapple, soft and sweet tropical tones, light floral notes and a little soap.
Taste comprises light pine, hops, bitter grapefruit, mineral tones.
Light in body, a little thin and watery as you’d expect for 1.9%, soft carbonation leading to a light bitter finish.
Hats off for a tasty enough beer at 1.9% !

Bottle. Hazy golden with a huge foamy head. It might be low on alcohol but it has plenty of carbonation. Nice big floral citrus hops aroma. I can sniff this beer all day. Good light crisp lemony taste with a tea like herbal finish and some straw/hay noted. After I finish AA this will be my beer of choice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(tap@Craft Beer co, London EC1N) Cloudy/hazy gold with a white head and light in body. Citrus hop aroma. Taste is tangy citrus with a sharp finish but has a rather empty mouthfeel overall. Good when you consider the abv, (but not as great in contrast to the slightly higher abv Mikkeller Marathon I had straight after which was amazing)
