3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Kihoskh, Copenhagen, shared with Palme and friends. Pours the seemingly default (good) look of Mikkeller Hop Series: a slightly hazy orange body with a medium off-white head. Nose is licorice, herbs, grass and hints of pine. Smooth and mellow, but a bit too weak for a high score. The same goes for taste: licorice, pine and hints of fresh grass, albeit too faint for my liking. Nice, but a bit too neutral all in all.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Meh...a decent beer at best. Aroma mostly caramel malt with notes of hay. Pour was a nice enough medium gold with a one finger off white head. Taste was heavy on the caramel with an underlying very green hoppiness. A mix of grass and burnt hay. Weird combination, though I was happy to pick out any hop flavor in the beer. Finish was slightly bitter and sticky sweet. Decent carbonation.

light amber color, big caramel and piney nose, but myth was a bit oxadized. Not as lively or fresh as the tet. Clearly not in top shape.
