fiulijn (19160) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle from Mikkeller Shop, Stefansgade, Copenhagen; bottled 14-08-13, bb 14-12-13
Hazy blond color with small fizzy head. The aroma is mild; there are citrusy hops, grass, light manure. The mouthfeel is smooth but also quite dry; the malt flavor is simple; medium-strong bitterness, with some hop resins and very light orangey fruitiness; the final is a bit papery.
Good but not exciting.
