UPDATED: JUN 9, 2014 If I did not know better I would think this was a very good session IPA or a very hoppy pale ale. It’s not - it’s a premium lager, but that doesn’t change the fact that this is a bloody good beer. Sticky white head, murky golden/yellow color. Very hoppy aroma with lot’s of flowers, grape, citrus. The taste is equally hoppy and citric and with a long aftertaste and a nearly prickly pine-like bitterness in the end. If a lager can taste like this then fuck the rest... Pardon my French

Nice aroma, good fruity notes, mango, pineapple and passion fruit. After taste is bitter and long. Lacks malt depth and Bitterness isn’t the nicest one - too sharp for my taste

I was hesitant about a bottom-fermented beer would manage to carry such bitterness and Mikkeller almost succeeded. Good smell and good taste, but a stale and a little burnt character pulls unfortunately down the impression.

A lager that really wants and tries to be an American pale ale. Apparently it goes by the name The Danish Dream in the US, due to market legal reasons. The aroma is dominated by a blast of hops. The taste as well, plus some extra heavy (almost stale) bitterness. This "crypto-APA" was among the strangest thing I have ever drunk. Do not understand the idea of ​​a bottom-fermented APA, but it’s also something that I like about this kind of cocky beer.

Renobob (550) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAY 28, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 33 cl. Bouteille périmée mais dégustation plutôt agréable tout de même. Bel équilibre pour cette bière légère. On sent les levures très présentes, peut être parce qu'elle est trop vieille. À regoûter.

Fat Nybrogatan - fin vit skumkrona som inte vill ge sig. Frisk aroma och kraftig beska. Bra bira! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

McWorta (539) - LUXEMBOURG - MAY 22, 2014
Fine fading white head. Light golden-honey coloured with a hint of opalescence. Noses lightly of grapefruit, litschi and mango. Soft texture, light body with light sweet-bitter tasting notes. Well balanced offering a somewhat dry finish with an astringent fruity touch to it.
