4.8%ABV. Lager. Tapped out gold. 6şSRM. Nose is actually pretty floral of a lager with some nice citrus notes like ripe lemons or just ripe oranges, grapefruit juice. Mouthfeel is watery. Palate has some nice clean pale malt and wheat malt flavors with bread dough and white bread predominating. Hops are aggressive and bitter with grapefruit peel, lemon and lime zest. Some cilantro spice, but overall populated with fresh, citrus, herbaceous and grassy flavors. Finish is clean, lightly beery.

Cloudy golden color. Frothy white head. Huge hoppy nose with honey dew and citrus notes. Mouth is full on bitterness. Definitely an ipl.

Draught at Garden House Crafts. Rich apricot and peach fruitiness from the hops, decent malt base, fairly smooth and refreshing, would probably be even better paired with the actual Illegal burger.

Tap at the summer pop up. Hoppy, caramel maltiness, something pine like. Nice, refreshing first drink. Quite malty but decent bitterness.

Marko (4991) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 6, 2015
Huge thanks to Petar for sharing this with Pornoguru and me (and others). Poured a misty amber bodd. Mild, quite mild tropical fruit aroma hop nose. The same continues on taste, reminding a little of aloe (nice catch by Pornoguru), Solid, medium bitterness balances it out. This is a lovely, well crafted little lager - great job Mikkeller!
