larsga (6621) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 10, 2015
Big coarseish white head. Clear yellow body with light carbonation. Resiny gooseberry aroma with dusty notes, quite faint. Very dry, and quite salty, resiny gooseberry taste. Mid-bodied. Sharpish mouthfeel. Dry resiny tropical fruit aftertaste with funky notes. Itís not bad, but itís very dry and austere, and I donít really like the hop character that much. (0.33l bottle, I donít know where from.)

Smaskifa (136) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 25, 2015
Bottle @ Illegal Burger, Oslo. Golden colour, decent white head. Not that much of an aroma, some sweetness, light citrus, a little hops. Pretty much the same from the taste, quite dry beer with a medium sweetness from the malts, citrus, not much hops from the finish. Itís quite refreshing, but not that exciting. The palate was a bit boring as well. Reading some of the other reviews I assume I might have gotten a quite old bottle, the last they had in the fridge, since the hops were hardly recognizable.

Yorker (1479) - Herning, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2015
33 cl bottle @ home. Pours slightly cloudy yellow with a white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma and flavour are citrus peel, grains, and herbs - with a dry finish.

Leighton (13565) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2015
Keg at the Kings Arms, London during the Mikkeller tap takeover. Pours clear yellow-gold with a foamy white head. Great hops, moderate sweetness. Fresh citrus. Clean, crisp. Light bodied with average carbonation. Moderately dry on the finish with crisp pale bread, a bit of rindy citrus. Solid.

fiulijn (16175) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Viktoriagade
Cloudy blond color, small head. Very fruity, fresh aroma; tropical fruits are most prominent; then, a bit of manure. Lean mouthfeel, dry; there is some delicate nice malt flavor, a bit crispy, but hidden by the strong bitterness; the hops are resiny, lightly fruity too.
Refreshing, very nice.

teorn88 (3555) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2014
Backlog rating. Keg at the Kingís Arms tap takeover. It pours a hazy straw color with a small white head. Aroma is quite hoppy with citrus peel, grass, tart apricots and hay. Taste is bitter and grassy with pint hops, grapefruit, grains, biscuit. Finishes dry and bitter, grainy. Light bodied with good carbonation. Overall, tasty lager with a nice hops presence
