Drinking this second back-to-back with a Challenger, neither is outstanding as Mikkellers go but this is definitely the better of the two. Hops are more prominent and it’s more balanced. Definitely enjoyable.

Flavor is light to medium sweet and slightly bitter. Tastes of malt, caramel, and some hops. Medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Medium sweet malt finish. 6.8%ABV is completely hidden throughout.

330mL bottle generously sent across the pond by stobbe74. The bottle pours copper with gold edges and a bit hazy when the yeasty sediment is involved. The hop laden liquid supports a near white sort of head. The aroma a mix of dank earthiness, spicy hops and sweet pilsner malts. Overall a timid hop aroma. The taste has flavor hops like spicy notes, sort of candi cane and then a thin vague resiny hop sensation. This one tries to get going with the taste.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample from 33 cl bottle at SBWF 2011. Almost clear amber liquid with small to medium off-white head. Aroma of honey, floral hops, caramel. Overall a bit faint aroma. Tate is medium to high bitter with light sweetness. Quite floral. Medium bodied with nice carbonation. Quite similar to the Tettnanger, and about as boring. Both aroma and taste is though a bit nicer and less weird.
