Eberndt (173) - - APR 26, 2014
Drank from 12 oz can and didn’t see color. Very hoppy but still drinks very much like a pilsner.

This is my first from Mikkeller that hasn't tasted like garbage and metal. Decent aroma with some fruitiness. Decent taste with some bitter back notes.

tectactoe (1716) - Michigan, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Can: Golden amber body with excellent clarity. Soapy white head on top; long-lasting with plenty of chunky lacing left behind. Aroma of milled grains, honeycomb, dense floral notes, & a bit of candied grapefruit. Big-time herbal & floral essence grows heavier over time. Taste has that same large floral presence with light pine, grapefruit rind, bitter citrus peel, pale malts, cereal grains, & some lasting perfume notes. Slightly watery at times. This is more like an IPA than a pilsner, at least as far as aromatic & flavor profiles go. Not bad, though.

slowrunner77 (646) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Wow...took a chance on this 4 pack instead of a know quantity, and I’m glad I did. As with Czechet and Dream Pils, Mikkeller makes (another) of the best pilsners I’ve ever had...and this is a little more reasonably priced and in a can. Nose is fantastic...kept going back to it all night. Crisp and clean as it should be, but not for lack of flavor. Very grassy hops, fruity, light grain and very light honeysuckle type sweetness. Dry and biting. Mikkeller #138

mcberko (6306) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 19, 2014
Can, pours a clear golden with a voluminous white head with long retention. Aroma is quite complex and exotic for a pils, with spicy hops, some grass, and biting biscuity malt. Flavour is spicy and dry, with notes of spice that I can only label as somewhat bamboo-like, with a touch of grass and dry crackery malt - no residual sweetness at all. Very drinkable and well-balanced pilsner. Nice one from Mikkel.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 12/20
Pailhead (4761) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Can: The aroma consists of light tropical fruits, citrus, light apple, and a touch of floral notes. It pours a transparent gold with a large white head that eventually fades to a soapy film. There’s a good amount of soapy lacing on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with light honey, fruit, and a touch of cereal notes. The finish has light florals, grass, and a hint of apple. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel.

jeremyh70 (693) - Missouri, USA - AUG 14, 2014
Pours a clear and bright golden color with a nice white head that settles to a film with good lacing. A good looking beer. Aroma has some sweet fruitiness along with a bit of dankness, some grassy hops and a little biscuit malt. Taste has a mild tropical fruit sweetness and a bit of dankness at first that progresses into a bright grassy and almost piney hop bitterness. The bitterness becomes boldly astringent, providing a chalky dryness and almost peppery in the finish. That flavor certainly lingers and builds the more you drink. Mouthfeel is semi slick and light/medium bodied with moderate/high carbonation. A very bold and hoppy pilsner that that I would enjoy more if it weren’t for the big astringency.

joergen (20662) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2014
Can at home. Cloudy golden coloured with a huge white head. Aroma of hay, hops, citrus peel and candies. Hoppy flavour of candies and pine needles with notes of citrus and grapefruits. Dry hoppy finish.

Yorker (1162) - Herning, DENMARK - AUG 5, 2014
