3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at Bishop’s Arms, Malmö
Hazy blond color; medium sized stiff head. The aroma is powerful, but not what expected; the hop is very nice, and aromatic, a bit germanic, a bit sweaty, and with some apple (strange), no signs of citrus fruits. Even if the body is not stong, the mouthfeel is quite round, also helped by a not-too-strong carbonation; dry toffee flavor, but with some fructose sweetness; very strong bitterness, resiny, with a lot of pine needles and, finally, just some bitter oranges. The final, with a light trace of apples (again?) Is less interesting, strong but just resiny (soft resins). Enjoyable (but nothing to compare to the Mikkeller, just in case you wonder).

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at 3 Små Rum.
Pale golden colour, airy cottony head. Sweet orangey nose, along with plain citrus. Dry hoppy from start to finish. Really absent in maltiness, but the dark plum is there as a a house character, from the yeast. A bit of Gin & Tonic here, with the dry, puckering bitterness. No balloon here, which is common with hoppy low abv beers. A clean beer, with no off- flavours whatsoever and a medium bitterness.
