3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen
Parallel with Willamette
Hazy amber color; small head. Mild caramel aroma, light toffee fudge and candi sugar, and sushi (better than the Willamette). Neutral caramel flavor, on the dry side, and neutral hop component; there is a correct (strong) bitterness level and a light but pleasant fruity touch, but also a bit dusty in the final.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.33l bottle from Kihoskh, Copenhagen shared with ClubGonzo and the rest of Bergen Tasting Crew. This one pours a clouded copperish body with a light beige bubbly and sidesticking head. The aroma has tones of the, by now well known, cat piss, some berry-branches and perhaps even some light sweet melon. Average carbonation levels here and a mild oily mouthfeel. Flavors are malty, some berry and melon tones. Ends light dry with a mild clustery-bitter aftertaste. Maah, not a favorite this hop.
