3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Carlsens Kvarter. Cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma of citrus hops, orange peel, a little pine and a faint hint of grainy malt. Dry, thin and bitter flavour with some citrus hop character. Too rough and bitter to be refreshing, but better than I remember from last year.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
33 cl bottle. pours a light hazy orange colour with white dense foamy head.
Aromas are very faint, but a bit hoppy, amarillo like.
The taste notes follow the aromas. its knda hoppy, some wheatlike malty flavours, but all very faint. some citrusy notes aswell.
I like the concept about making some low alcool beer, but for the price of the brand, Mikkeller shouldnt be making it. its simply way too expensive comparing to what you get IMO

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle.
Pours a golden colour with a frothy white head. Aroma is lovely fresh and floral with sweet exotic fruitiness. Flavour is quite extreme for such a low ABV beer; rich with strong floral hops, grapefruit, sweet mango and some pale malts. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and a high bitter, tangy finish. Light and refreshing, just as it should be. A top-notch low alcohol beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 07.12.2013
Aroma is hoppy and slightly sweet with exotic fruits, especially mango. Flavour is rather hoppy too. It starts with exotic fruits but unfortunately turns rather quickly towards the ashy, vichy‐like feeling typical to beers with this ABV. Still probably the best low‐alco beer I’ve had.

Hazy orange color, small white head. Fresh hayish hoppyness with notes of pineapple. Light-bodied. Fruity, slightly grapefruity with some pine needles. Of course watery, but very tasty for this ABV. Perhaps the best low alco "IPA" I’ve had.
