2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A lot of carbonation at the start. Slowly faded. Lingering puffy white head. Flavor was of some ginger slight honey. Makes for an interesting flavor not at all what I was expecting just very herbal but not in a good way. Expecting a bit more but this didn’t deliver unfortunately. Drinkable but not worth the money.

4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Day 9 of Julepakkekalender from Mikkeller. Bottled.
Aroma: Has a cheesy nose, reminiscent of pecorino. Slight whiffs of ginger and hops.
Appearance: Pours a hazy gold. Has a light head, that sat on top for the whole time (30 minutes).
Taste: A sweet, mild ginger flavour. A very smooth honey aftertaste.
Palate: A bit bitter from the ginger, but overall very sweet. The use of honey lets the beer slide down your throat. Light carbonation. Medium body. Slightly creamy.
Overall: I thought I’d hate this beer, but I was wrong! The ginger taste isn’t overpowering, and the addition of honey helps this beer become FAR too drinkable. It’s almost like a sore throat cure for beer lovers. It reminds me of sparkling mead.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at House of Beers, Thonglor, Bangkok. Poured a hazy light amber with a frothy white head and a little broken lace. The aroma is yeast, light malt, light citrus fruit. The flavour is moderate bitter with a crisp refreshing light honey ginger hop spice palate. Light bodied with average carbonation. Nice to drink in its own, but needs food I feel and that’s what It was brewed for after all.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled 330ml. -from Svijet Piva. Pale golden coloured, medium sized airy white head that went away fast, mild spicy nose. Sweetish malty, light spicy and fruity with notes of ginger and yeast. Mild hint of honey in rather dry finish. Not the best one in town, and for sure 5€ for this is a way too much.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle from Hop Corner. Light sunrise orange, pretty clear, with an average, creamy and persistent bright white head. Quite herbal and perfumy nose, some grass and spices, dark/rye bread, light hoppy notes. Very light and zingy, pretty sweet and astringent. Malty and salty/mineral taste. Harsh medicinal aftertaste. Average to lively carbonation, light to medium body, slightly creamy texture. Not my cup of tea.
