Clear golden body, white head. Aroma of lychee, passion, pineapple, caramel and soap. Hoppy but not too bitter. Nice one.

Bottle. Mostly clear reddish golden color. Thick foamy head with a lacing. Aroma of fruity hops and lime. Some bitterness in otherwise fresh fruity taste. Bitter finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours amber with a large head.
Nose shows piny, resinous hops but also some light fruit. A fair bit of sweet crystal malt in there too.
Fairly hop focussed flavours, including a piny, resinous bitterness. A reasonable malt presence too. Pretty clean.
Could use more carbonation.
Very easy-drinking stuff.

Drunk straight from the bottle as directed. I like Mikkeller so it looked great in the bottle. Bottle, metal and tangerine aromas. Full with sweet caramel upfront with a tropical fruit middle and a lasting grapefruit pith finish. Very nice head forms inside the bottle.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Wonderful aroma, fruity, hoppy and slightly malty. Taste is quite full but not heavy, which means this will go down fast! The aftertaste is short and slightly hoppy. Could linger for a longer while, but this is just wonderful to drink.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is a standardish lager aroma in the backround but fresh hops make it appetizing. Appearance is 4 instead of 3 due to the large frothy head which lasts long. Taste has the malt background giving it fullness but bitter hoppyness gives it a bite that lingers on ur tongue for a long time. Didnít know i could like a lager this much.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cl bottle @ home. Pours a beautiful deep golden colour, amber-ish at times, with a thick, lasting, off-white head. The aroma is the thing I liked the most about this beer: aggressive grapefruit at first, then tangerine, even a softer apricot and a touch of honey. Light bodied and not really balanced in the mouth (lacks a bit of maltiness), still does the job itís been designed for. 33 cl is really not enough. Could do from the bottle, as suggested, but the aroma was really elegant, would have been a pity to miss. Very short aftertaste, but leaves your mouth clean and dry.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy orange/amber liquid, pours a white thin foamy head. Aromascape is full of fruit with a herby twist. Deep fruit aromas, with a dark spicy notes; very enjoyable. The taste is smooth with a bitter wash. The sweetness tingles with the round sourness. Intelligent composition. The palate is dry but keeps the tastes moist. A sophisticated beer from Mikkeller, very nice.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Wowee, the_bish wasnít lying: this is a) a Premium Lager and b) massively, highly rated. I liked it too, pretty thick in the mouth, hoppy in a non-US, slightly continental way. Didnít really pick it as a lager I must say, but it was very tasty indeed. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm nice.
