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.

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.

Ungstrup (34666) - 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.

oh6gdx (25472) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 15, 2009
Bottle@Beer Hunters, Pori. Amber colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is nutty, fruity hoppy and also quite spicy and yeasty. Flavour is fruity hops, grass, yeast and some gluelike sweetness. Hop, glue and some nuttyness in the aftertaste. A bit strange but drinkiable. As it warms up it all gets into a glueish überfruity mess.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2008
(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

TBone (16197) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 7, 2009
Bottled, Beer Hunters’ (BB 05/2010). Deep orange color, small creamy white head. Yeasty, mango-citrus-orange nose with some alcohol too. Grapefruity, tangerine-mango spicey flavor. Quite yeasty. Fruity spicey brew, which is too ordinary for being label beer for Pikkulintu.

FatPhil (14122) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 26, 2009
500ml bottle (Porvoo BF2009)
Fruity hoppy aroma - big and nettley. Pleasant carbonation - big nettley retronasals. Sweet malty body, a bit sticky. Big sugar hit, bold hops. Finish sweet and hoppy, but only moderately bitter. Long finish is a bit nettley and spicy. Tasty, but a bit one-dimensional and sweet.

Almost clear golden colour with big frothy off-white head. Dark bitter hops and toffee sweetness in aroma. Flavour is pretty much the same. Hops are very dark bitter and intense.
