bulldogops (1039) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 28, 2014
Rating #932 - January 20, 2014 - #mondaynightbeers at the Underground Tap and Grill - an @Mikkeller #dailydouble - Pours a slightly cloudy golden amber, bubbly white foam, mild retention. Aroma is a lot of cool brett funk and citrusy hops. Palate is more of the above, a mild sourness that syncs up with the hoppy fruit punch. Very nice.

beerbaaron (1129) - Arizona, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Side by side with lager, brux, and English. Has been cellared for a bit so the hoppiness has been knocked down a bit. Pours a medium amber. Solid small creamy white head, partly lasting with some lace. Aroma is light malty, semi-sweet, dry hoppy, subtle fruity, little dry woody, yeasty, touch of spices. Flavor follows. Lighter Medium body. Solid but not overpowering bitterness, and dryness. Just the right amount of fruitiness and sweetness. Good balance, yet doesn’t quite come all together.

MarinEvelyn (525) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Has been cellared for a while so the hoppiness has somewhat dissipated. More yeasty, light fruity aroma. A little cereal. Semi sweet, a little hoppy. Taste is strong orange. Decent hoppy/malt balance. Leaves my tongue tingling

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
maekchu (1943) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 13, 2014
Bottle from Yamaichi. Pungent, hoppy nose, light fumes, some caramel. Hazy orange/copper color, small beige head. Mild caramel initial, with some interesting tanginess / mid palate features a small bitter explosion in the sinuses (is this the result of some yeast experiment?) / hits the back of the tongue hard with some undefinable funky chemical note. Tasty, except for the serious mid-palate burst.

Marduk (2472) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 11, 2013
330ml bottle. Clear amber color. Medium size, thick, white head, stays. Fresh, tinned fish, metallic notes in aroma. Not very pleasant smell. Pineapple, metallic, vegetables, dusty taste. Very messy.

FatPhil (8996) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 7, 2013
330ml bottle (Ale House, Riga)
Light fruit - lychee aroma first, then tinned peach, including the tin. Taste has tomato, lots more fruit. Thin sweetish malts. Even slick palate. A bit messy. Lacking the nuts and the resins. The only positive is that it still covers the alcohol. Sweet, and messy. Thank you Mikkeller for helping me work out why I’m no fan of American Pale Ales - it’s quite possibly the yeast.

JanLaursen (2985) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2013
Flaske, 33 cl. Diset, ravgylden bryg med et stort hvidt hovede og godt holdbarhed. Citrus-noter. Mild karamel. Ret let aroma i fht samme bryg med engelsk gær. Meget velafbalanceret krop, maltsødme vs bitterhed.
