3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A cloudy copper color with half the pour being light tan foam that seems to take forever to reduce. A light but pleasant aroma with pepper, malt, fruit, and pine. Mikkeller seems to love brewing with lots of hops and this is an example. They lead the flavor profile with tart bitter citrus, pepper spice, passion fruit. Nothing really exceptional but a nice, well rounded beer, flavorful beer.

Draughtt at Churchkey. Bright golden color, medium white head, great lacing. Aroma of white pepper and malt. Taste is bitter throughout with some pepper. Very similar to the lager version. Seems rather pointless to vary the yeast, but change the base beers, and to include so much hops and alcohol, overwhelming the yeast. More gimmick than taste.
