gururyan (647) - Stillwater, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 7, 2013
My bottle label is some kind of abstract shades of brown as opposed to the image shown here, but apparently it’s the same inside. I should note that I think Mikkeller is an over-hyped, over-priced POS...at least in my experiences. However, I really like the idea of their single hop taste test with 19 hop varieties. So, let’s taste armadillo hops. Aroma is, well...apparently what amarillo hops smell like, very piny. Appearance is a muddled brownish orange with sediment. Large head quickly dissipates. Taste is woody, chalky, and gamey if that makes sense to you. If this is a good representation of amarillo hops, I can cross them off my like list. Does this make the beer bad? Well, yes and no. Bad to me, because I apparently don’t care for amarillo hops. And since I use this site as a diary for ME and MY beer tastes...sorry Mikkeller, you get yet another bad check from me. However, I applaud your series idea and only wish the other 18 were available and damn it to hell wish they weren’t $9 a sample.

olsvammel (4008) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUN 27, 2015
On tap at Örebro Ölcafé. Buttery smell with caramel, some fruits and sugar. Malty taste with caramel, also fairly sweet. Diacetyl? Lacks hops and feels faded and poorly balanced. Way to malt focused for a single hop.

This is an excellent beer, works great with a grilled lamb fillét. Or just as it is on a cold day when u are sitting infront of a bonfire.

Pours cloudy dark amber with ivory head. Aroma is porridge, bread, peach, grass and passion fruit. In the mouth it tastes well balanced between sour and bitter, and feels fresh, not very lingering.
