3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home. Pours a slightly hazy, pale orange colour and an off-white head. Fruity aroma with apricot, citrus, mowed grass, pale malt and fruity hops. The flavour has more fruity hops with grapefruit, pine, harpix and grass. Has a slick mouth feel, and a solid bitterness. A tasteful and aromatic pilsener, but I feel the hops takes too much place and maybe and the beer is a bit one dimensional.

33 cl bottle.
Pours hazy golden color with a large head. Nice floral hops on the nose, tropical fruits and mild piney, resinous sweetness. Resinous hops, caramel malts and lots of grapefruits on the flavor, slightly grassy lingering bitterness on the finish. Strong carbonation, very refreshing grape-y brew. Very nice and balanced.

Wow, this is a really nice one. Looks just that way one wants a lager should look like on a hot sunny summer day, now it’s the middle of winter but what does it matter? Fresh, fruity taste, that bounce around in your mouth for a while. Hopped that typical Mikkeller way!
