Bottle to glass
Aroma of orange, grape, biscuit, and malt. Amber with lots of particulates floating around with a huge bubbly head...it's not very nice to look at. Taste is bitter up front which fades and then comes back...there's a little sweetness in there too.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Brewdog.com (330ml, £5):
Strong fruits on the nose to start things off with, there is some apricot and a touch of mango with some sweet hops and plenty of citrus notes. The beer is very fresh smelling and quite juicy too with some apple and some grapes.
Light, golden amber colour with a pretty big, three fingers tall head that is foamy looking and holds well. The beer shows lots of evidence of strong carbonation.
Bitter hops and summer fruits to begin with here. There is some apples and apricot with a hint of mango but the bitter hops and pine seem to overpower the rest of the beer and definitely dominate the taste. There is some lemon and citrus flavours with a touch of orange.
Smooth & medium bodied but very bitter with some fruits and a touch of sweetness in the background and the beer is quite refreshing around the middle. Carbonation is about medium and the finish is crisp but very dry.
The beer had a nice and refreshing aroma to it with plenty of summer fruits and a great, hoppy bitter feel to it but this became slightly overpowering as I worked my way down the drink. A pretty average offering from Mikkeller if I’m honest, and after a few good ones recently as well.

From tap @Mikkeller & Friends. Cloudy orangey golden. A layer of patchy blond bubbles. Nose is fruity hops, zesty citrus and oranges. Some herbal notes. Clear, lightly toasted malt base. Firm fruity bitterness. Grapefruits and oranges, herbs/flovers and mild resins. Smooth on the palate. Medium full. Nice hop bite in the finish. Good one. [26.03.13]
