TBone (12333) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 31, 2009

FatPhil (9002) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 30, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2009 Draught (Pikkulintu, Helsinki)
Rich orange, huge keggy head (hard to pour). Fairly nondescript hoppy aroma, sweet and fruity. Harsh carbonation, very acidic. Very bland taste, just some sugary fruity hops, and little else. No balance, no malty backbone. Mikkeller seem to have forgotten that beer is a fermented malt drink, it is not a hop squash. Dull and unsatisfying. Bored me witless within a couple of sips. No balance. Rather than malts this has sugars. Sticky, not refreshing. Not designed for drinking. Worse than that, there is actually something unpleasant about it - it’s soapy and barky and dirty. Like chewing on a forest floor.

Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - JUL 25, 2009
On-tap. Tre Små Rum. Gothenburg. Red/light brown colour with an off-white head. American hops, strawberries, caramel, light tropical fruitiness, grass, grape skins, aspirin, alcohol. Very bitter finish. Too heavy on the bittering hops and the alcohol for my liking. Didn´t feel entirely fresh.

yespr (30689) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2009
From tap at Ørsted Ølbar. Pours clear and golden dark orange with a small, creamy and off-white head. Aroma is light grapefruity and peachy hoppy, smooth and elegant aroma. Light roasted malty, note of brett-ish hops accent and nice fruity hoppy base flavour. Bitter and fruity finish. Outstanding.

Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2009
Draft. A hazy deep red beer with a lazing off-white head. The aroma has notes caramel and light notes of hops lending it light notes of grapefruit. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel and strong notes of hops again lending it notes of grapefruit primarily. The finish is bitter and a bit grassy.
