COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed by Mikkeller at Amager Bryghus.

An American Strong Ale brewed exclusively for Pikkulintu Pub in Helsinki, Finland. Enthusiasm, expertise, dedication. Those are the words best describing the work of the guys of Pikkulintu Pub in Helsinki, Finland. With their vast knowledge and a decade of experience in the crazy world of beer, Pikkulintu has been able to change the face of Finnish craft-beer scene within the past few years – for good! Always finding the best beers available with their noses of truffle pigs they also dug Mikkeller out from the fertile soil of dnish craft-brewing and ended up being the first European importers of Mikkeller beer. This beer – strong, bold and beautiful like the boys behind it - is a result of a long partnership and a tribute to the daring beer-guerrillas of Pikkulintu.

Uklar orange farve med et flot hvidt skum. Dufter af humle, bagegær og grapefrugt. Smaget af mere humle , bagegær græs og citrus. Man bliver helt tør i munden.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 12, 2008
Yellow-brown colored with hazy appearance. Medium sized white head. Rich aroma with fruits dominating, licorice also present, still some glue distracting here. Medium to full bodied. Flavor is drier with fruits strongly present, hoppy bitterness also with some apple too. Aftertaste lasts with dry notes and apple. Well, some distracting notes, still ok brew.

(Bottle 50 cl) Hazy golden with a dense off-white head leaving laces. Fresh and fat peachy hop aroma. Full-bodied with sweetish caramel and fruit and again loads of peachy accents from the aroma hops that also leave a solid dose of bitterness. 310808

Ungstrup (29303) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2008
Bottled. An unclear amber beer with an orangey head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of hops lending it notes of grass, citrus, and peaches. The flavor is sweet with a clean malt profile and notes of citrus fruits - especially grapefruit, leding to a dry finish.

50 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a lacing white head. Dense hoppy and mild caramel malty aroma. Sweet peachy and light wooden start flavour. Goes gradually more dry and bitter into the finish with a mild spice note emerging from the hops. Light yeasty touch into a rather dry and hoppy finish.

Grovlam (4154) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 31, 2008
Bottle. [Papsoe tasting 31-08-2008, thanks buddy] Huge thick and foamy off-white head that really lasted. Excellent display of lacework. Cloudy amber color. Aroma of lovely chewy peach and apricot, mild grapefruit and dusty floral notes. Mild underlying caramel. Over the palate came strong bitter hoppy notes with a combination of fruit and mild toasted malty and caramel notes. Full bodied with an average carbonation and very dry texture. Moderated bitter flavor with good counter sweetness. Lingering chewy hoppy dry finish.
