Very pleasant, discreet bitterness, soft, round, true to type. Don’t feel the oak very much.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours clear golden with a tall, rocky head. Really carbonated. Smells like orange peel, lemon and grass followed by a bready malt. Taste is lots of bready/toasty malts and a fruity sweetness. Carbonation is near overpowering and won’t settle. Frustrating, could have been a good beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle) Golden colour, slightly hazy, with rocky white head, leaving traces of lacing. Malty, fruity nose with bready malt, honey, tropical fruit, canned peaches and fresh floral hops. Malty, fruity taste with notes of tropical fruit, bread, honey, grass and fresh floral hops in a finish with a fairly short and quite balanced bitterness. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Feels more like a perfumy premium lager than a kellerbier, but it’s quite enjoyable.

pours a golden colour with a fairly big head.
This is a fairly lively brew with hoppy flavours.
Light body though.
Nothing that Mikkeller touches disappoints.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, Brew Dog, Newcastle. Slightly hazy golden pour with a middling white head. Grassy hop, sweet malt and citrus notes in the nose and flavour. Plenty of malt in the flavour in tandem with some robust hop bitterness. Tidy balance .Smooth , crisp and very drinkable. An excellent take on the style.

Hazy gold beer, good pale cream coloured head. Dry airy palate. Dry lagerish malt, nutty and creamy. A little bitter orange hop on the backend, marmalade as well. Dry finish with minerals. Bitter linger. Interesting!

0.33 l bottle at hotel room in Copenhagen, thanks Rauno! Golden color. Herbal and citrusy aroma. Herbal, oaky, bitter, honeyish and slightly citrusy flavor. OK, would be better with less oak.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a 330ml bottle into a German 0.3l handled glass (drank Feb ’12).
Pours a crystal clear blonde/light amber in colour with a big big frothy white head.
A lot of aroma to this beer! I got mushy peas, wasabi/mustard, hops and malt roughly in that order. Most unusual smells!
Flavour wise, grassy hops, a little citrus and some nutty/wood tones to it. A crisp bitter-dry aftertaste.
Medium in body and moderate to low in carbonation.
On OK take on a Zwickel but perhaps trying a bit too hard to be ’whacky’ and different when there isn’t a need to! The smell was something way out! Nothing like (nor as good) as the many kellerbiers I’ve drank in Deutschland!
