Very strange nose ! Smoked ham and cooked vegetable ... I don’t really know if Apollo hop variety gave this profile to the beer or if this is a reduction note linked to a fermentation issue. Anyway, that’s interesting for tasting, not really for drinking ... maybe served with a Sauerkraut ... nothing else !

gunnar (6424) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JAN 5, 2012
On tap at Henrik, Bergen. Pours hazy dark golden with a small white head. Strong citrus and flowery hop aroma. Taste of really fresh hops, fruity with a herbal touch of mint at the end. Not bad at all. Dry mouthfeel.

Skinnyviking (7790) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2012

olsvammel (4140) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 30, 2011
Bottle at Bishops Arms in Örebro. Apollo reminds me a bit about Sorachi Ace, but the dill aroma isn’t as agressive. Nice to try a new kind of hops, but I don’t think I will be using this one in one of my own brews.

jesperhammer (3497) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2011
29-DEC-2011, bottle @home, from "Kihoskh". Amber/golden with lasting beige head. Nose is grape fruit, resin, and grass. Also a slight skunky note is there. Taste is grape fruit, iron, grass, earth, and a bit more skunk. Ends bitter and long, but not in a superfruity pleasant hoppy way. Malty notes in this brew as well, but i sort of concentrate on the hop variety. Not a favorite hop.

Draft @ Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen. Pours a hazy orange color with a small off-white head. Has a fruity malty grassy bitter aroma. Fruity malty hoppy bitter grapefruit flavor. Has a fruity malty hoppy bitter grapefruit finish.

JorisPPattyn (8442) - Ursel, BELGIUM - DEC 11, 2011
Fully hazy amber-orange beer under fluffy, dense, dirty cream-coloured beer; shards of lace. Horrible basement smell, mushrooms, sulphur or/and saltpetre, cat’s pee, ureum, valerian and old, oxydized oatmeal (I was going to write ’socks’...) Again ureum to the fore, the smell of lilies, or cut lilies in a watervase. Retronasal, the basement aroma, with meaty and mouldy notes return. Rather well-bodied, thick and creamy MF. But that smell... Yikes. That one (catty) hop can change so much. Agreed, there is some amount of fleetingness, the intensity of this off-smell diminishes somewhat warming up. Yet, another Sorachi Ace for me, please.
