3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Amber golden colour with with yellow/white creamy head, which quickly dissapeared. Aroma of wood (beech, birch, citruses (especially lemon, grapefruit - amarillo dry hop?). Similar is flavour: Full body, soft carbonation, medium carbonation. Taste is firstly fruity sweet, finish is hoppy dry (amarillo?) and bitter/ fruity-sweet aftertaste. Is this premium lager? Then every lager should be like this one!

On tap at Beer for Geeks. A light gold pour with a vibrant hoppy nose. Crackery malts and bitting hop bitterness make for a solid hoppy pils.

I thought this was the same as Mikkeller’s American Dream as well so I am guessing this is a Japanese name variant??? On tap at World Craft Beer Tasting. A deep copper pour with a big citrusy sweet lemon hop bouquet. The taste is bitter green earthy pine, kind of one dimensional but with enough malt backbone to support it. The finish is a clean lingering bitterness. Overall nice but not so special.

33cl "Mikkeller, or Die" bottle from beer52.com. A hazy pale amber pour with a tight white head; citrus aroma; sharp grapefruit taste with some tropical fruit; and a lingering bitterness with a dry finish. Pleasantly refreshing.

Bottle @ home. Pours hazy orange with a large white head. Taste is mainly of malt, caramel and lots and lots of hops. Very bitter, dry and drinkable - I can see how this would be good (read: dangerous) in the summer. :-)

Bottle, 0.33l. Clear deep amber color with large soapy white head, good lacing and soft visible carbonation. Aroma of passion fruit, mango, resin and caramel. Taste starts with moderate sweet caramel malt and resin, following is refreshing fruity and grassy with moderate bitter finish. Medium body, oily texture and soft carbonation in palate. Hoppy sessionable lager...

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Wygląd: Piwo o pomarańczowej barwie, przejrzyste z białą i niską pianą która dość szybko opada do ringu.
Aromat: kwiaty, cytrusy, miód, pieczywo.
Smak: Solidna goryczka w grapefruitowym stylu, kwiaty, cytrusy, dość pełna słodowość.
Piwo średnio wysycone. Warte uwagi.

Keg at BrewDog Shepherd’s Bush - London. Pours lightly hazy deep gold with a creamy off-white head. The aroma holds a lot of citrus peel, some grapefruit, minerals, pale bread. Light sweet flavor, fairly dry, with plenty of minerals, pithy lemon and grapefruit, pale wood, hay. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Finishes with a bit of pithy and rindy citrus hop, touches of grassy bitterness, dried out pale malts, pine needles. A very nice hoppy lager.
