3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Mikkeller bar, from my feet, as the last beer I’m likely to drink in Copenhagen on this trip. Unless I manage to get a couple of Norwegian pale lagers cold fast without a fridge but that’s irrelevant :). Poured a hazy amber-orange body with a small white head. The nose belied some soft notes of aroma hops but a distinct vinuous note that I might’ve been imagining but I hope not. The taste came close too, A soft underlying peachy malt, light aromatic hops, some fruity, grape-like notes. A cool enough beer, though not entirely my style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Slightly hazy amber golden with a small off-white head. Sweet, juicy and fruity nose with very distinct Nelson Sauvignon notes. Medium body, dry notes of white wine, some yeast and again distinct Nelson Sauvignon. Some alcohol in the finish. Good, but doesn’t reach the levels of the barrel-aged version. 080510

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at KØ-10. A golden, chill-hazed beer topped by a small, dense, off-white head. Fruity nose with some sugary hops. Warming and fruity in the mouth, full-bodied and a bit sweetish, finishing fruity and warming. A rather pleasant one, nothing special. 100506

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A Mes rate. Bottle at Københavns Ølfestival 2010.
Hazy dark gold colour with a thin off white head. Big hops on the nose with a hint of amonia, nice floral notes and somegoodgrassy bitterness. A little white wine in there too. Much sweeter in the mouth with the malt almost overpowering the hops but then some assertive grapefruit character easily takes over bringing with it some more fruity notes from the malt. Decent dry and bitter finish. Good stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ Mikkeller bar. Hazy orange body with an off-white head. Aroma is fruity like citrus and gooseberries and currants. Flavor is light malty, fruity, quite bitter and dry. A bit unusually, interesting and balanced.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at DØE Beerfestival 2010, TAP1. Pours an unclear, light amber beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is caramel and hops with flowers. The flavor follows the nose with some additional sweetness. The palate is hops and sweetness. Overall an average beer, the barreled edition is better.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
well-crafted doubly champagne-feel/bitter ale on the nose (that’s quite an achievement, I reckon) the taste is quickly dominated by cooked veggies, and that really put me off
