3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
"Very good example of a pretty nice beer that was oversold. First off, the barrel influence is so light as to be almost sugestive, only manifesting in a slightly sweet maple aftertaste. Otherwise, a nice straightforward imperial pilsener. In other words, not a beer worth over a buck an ounce."

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12.7oz bottle. Shared with abistany. Bottle gushed a bit upon opening, open with caution. Moderately hazy golden orange color. Good thin off-white head. Leaves kind of loose lace, but thicker globs stick. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Lightly slick finish. Refreshing, bright, easy-drink. Not overcarbonated. Nice bready malt taste, good moderate citrus and peppery hop, and a nice light note of that maple syrup in the finish. It all works very nicely. Moderate bitter taste, good zestiness, light to moderate sweet. Alcohol well-hidden. Great stuff. Very complex and well-integrated, it works well.

Bottle from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours light orange gold with a slight white head. Aroma of cooked caramel. With some following noble hop. Med body or better. Flavor is noble hop quickly subsumed by maple. Really quite different, but clearly pilsener for the basics. Rather intriguing.

1st May 2014
Mikkeller & Friends. Bottle share with Fonefan, Rlgk and ChrisO. Hazy gold beer, big pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and airy and crisp. Light creamy malt, touch of vanilla. Light spice. Light floral fruitiness. Whisper of something maple like but you would need to known it’s there. Light crisp finish. Hangs together very well, very drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Clear copper with a medium sized creamy white head. Good retention and lace. A bit discreet nose with sweet tropical fruit and barrel. Peach, oak, honey, light perfumy. Light malt sweetness, little bitterness. The barrels are easy to detect, and I’m starting to appreciate the barrel aged lighter beers. They make for a good slow complex drink without being too heavy.
