JoeMcPhee (8314) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 16, 2010
Tap at Blind Tiger. Deep amber-garnet pour. The nose is lightly earthy with a soft caramel sweetness. Lightly fruity hoppiness although none of them come across as terribly distinct. A bit hot on the finish and the normal yeast contribution seems to be a little lost as well… I think it’s proof that more isn’t always better.

Draught@Bishops Arms Vasagatan Stockholm in Autumn 2009. Hazy reddish/orange/amber colour with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is fruits and floral hops along with some mild caramel malty and grassy notes as well. Flavour is similar and ends in a rather strong bitterness.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAR 19, 2010
On tap at the Blind Tiger for their Mikkeller single hop event. Pours a hazy ruby with a medium sized beige head. Malty and sweet smelling with a good amount of hoppy citrus. Rich caramel, medium bodied and creamy, lots of nice malt. Light grapefruit finish.

TeamTrappist (830) - jericho, New York, USA - MAR 17, 2010
Tap at Blind Tiger. Poured a cloudy amber hue with a thin white head. Nose has some sweet fruit notes but is on the light side. Firm flavors for a pale ale. Lots of malt and fruit notes followed by a firm bitter finish. Nice

anders37 (16390) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 24, 2009
Draft @ Ørsted Ølbar, Copenhagen. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a small longlasting off-white head. Has a fruity malty and slightly spicy hoppy aroma. Fruity malty hoppy flavor. Has a dry malty hoppy finish with some bitterness in the aftertaste.

ricke (476) - Malme, SWEDEN - NOV 19, 2009
Hazy amber with a very big and hard off-white head that stays around for quite a while. Lots and lots of grapefruits and citric notes in the nose. Powerful hoppy character, but it is slightly one-sided due to the emphasis on grapefruit and citric notes. Some notes of grass and caramel malts. In the taste there’s also lots of grapefruit and lemon-peel that seems to cover the hole mouth with a layer of hop flavors. Some oily hop notes and quite a lot of grass as well. Nice sweetness in this one. Every now and then I pick up a taste of yeast. The finish has a long bitterness to it and more hops. A hint of alcohol. Despite the prominent hop character, the flavor is quite balanced. Medium body with a nice sticky texture. Another fine beer from Mikkeller. Very hoppy and refreshing. I enjoyed it from start to finish. Serving type: on-tap (Copy of old Beer Advocate review)

fiulijn (14327) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 28, 2009
Draught at På Besök, Malmö
Beautiful hazy amber color, creamy head. Perfumy hop aroma; the flavor is dryish, caramel, no sweetness, with strong ending bitterness. Quite harsh, but good for the summer thirst.

Marsiblursi (2993) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 25, 2009
(Drught) Pours reddish amber with a creamy sand coloured head. The aroma is fruity and floral with hints of toasted malt. Undertones of pink grapefruit, pine and wine gum. The flavour is light sweet and medium biter with tones of flowers, fruits and grapefruits alongside a “tight” maltiness. The mouthfeel is clean and light watery. Flowery and light citric hops lingers. Light bodied.

Finwe (412) - Grankulla, FINLAND - AUG 17, 2009
Draught @ Pikkulintu. Amber colour with a whitish head. Somewhat fruity aroma that includes a faint hint of malt. Fresh hoppy taste which develops into a bitterish aftertaste.
