mcberko (5362) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 6, 2012
11.2 oz. bottle, pours a murky, opaque orangey brown with a medium beige head. Aroma of grassy hops, herbal notes, earth, and some feint tropical fruits. Flavour of earthy dry hops, grainy malts, rye-like bread, and finishes with a very slight fruity tinge. Nice dry body, though a little dirty and messy. Decent.

Bov (9050) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - AUG 2, 2012
from Erzbierschof - hazy dark orange-blond beer with a persistent foam; chewy malts and some fruity notes; full-bodied, sticky and corny; solidly bitter; quite dry and with a long fruity hoppiness

Headbanger (2978) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 22, 2012
12oz bottle 7/22/12 (Binny’s Naperville)-41° in Lager Glass-Pours a hazy amberish golden with a small white head. Aroma of hops, caramel, and sweetness. Taste of hops, citrus, malt, caramel, and bread. This medium bodied brew was not bad. I don’t know what I was expecting but it hides the ABV very well.

beerguy101 (5267) - Newark, California, USA - JUL 19, 2012
Sampled on 5/5/2012. This “IPA/Strong Pale Lager(?)” pours a slightly cloudy orange gold color from a 330ml bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity, caramel and sweet. A medium bodied ale. The malts are caramel and sweet. The hops are herbal and earthy. Decent carbonation. Not a whole lot of that typical pilsner spiciness. A touch of sweetness at the finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Hazy amber beer. Good white head. Light dry palate, slightly soft. Spicy hops - grapefruit. Trace of orange, finishes dry and slightly soft. Nice beer but not very lager like!

Habanero (2142) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2012 Bottled: Pours hazy murky amber with a huge fluffy, off-white head with excellent lacing. The nose is with piney, earthy hops and caramel. The flavor is medium sweet with bitter hops, with citrus fruits and caramel notes. Medium bodied with a bite, oily texture and lively carbonation. Solid bitter and more dry finish. OK.

Ughsmash (7003) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 4, 2012
Bottled. Poured cloudy orangey-amber with a tall, sticky off-white head. The aroma picked up clean bready notes and lighter-skinned fruits, with fresh oranges, peaches, and other fruits around.. light peppery notes too.. surprisingly good!. The flavor found bread and mixed fruity malts at the core.. Orange and pine resin bitterness and light sourness around.. finished dry, fruity, and peppery.. tasty! Medium-bodied and well-carbonated on the palate.. smooth across the middle.. good transitions through the mouth.. excellent stuff!

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 19, 2012
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, opening night
Bright amber color. It’s the first of the series, I can’t yet compare it, but the fruity hops are somehow too strong to reveal the qualities of the yeast. Both aroma and flavor are rather fruity, and the yeast seems to build a spicy character; good toffee backbone.

pours hazy caramel, decent white head. doesn’t really look like a typical lager, as expected from Mikkeller. nose is herbal malts, earthy hop profile, Belgian yeast. full bodied with long, bitter aftertaste. I dug it.
