2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the brewpub. Served in a tall goblet.
Pours a ligh copper color with a half-finger of white head that faded and leaves a bit of spotty lacing as well as a thin collar. The nose is really quite plain wit just a bit of light malty sweetness.and some very faint tropical hops.
The taste is a bit of a disappointment. There are some tropical hops and some lightly-sweet malt, though it is a bit medicinal and boozy toward the back. Finish is oddly alcoholic and has a bit of a medicinal component. Not my favorite brew from them, sad to say. Interesting, but not all that good in the end.
Serving type: on-tap

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen. Hazy amber, almost no head. Caramelly nose with notes of honey. Sweet and full bodied, packed with sticky caramel., syrupy mouthfeel. More honey in a warming finish where there’s also notes of lingonberries. Feels too rough and immature.
