3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium, yellowish head over orange to amber beer. Grapefruit, passion fruit, lytchee, all the classical fruity hops. Fruity, very lightly caramel, grapes, passion fruit. Bit empty finish. Refreshing, medium bodied, slick, not very well-bodied. Oh well. Not bad, excellent hops, but not much else.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark golden coloured beer with a nice sized and good holding head. Good amount of hops, nice grassy and a nice amount of citrus and grapefruits. Decent amount of spices, a hint of caramel, a good biterness. One of the better lagers I’ve tasted till now for sure. Even wondering if this still is one. Decent tastefull beer, and not what I was expecting before opening the bottle. Also way more fruity, but in a good (even pleasant) way.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours golden amber with off white head. Aroma of nice juicy hops, citra is kinda present with some rather tropical stuff going on. Also some pine, grassy hops, weak bread crust and weak herbs. The taste has nice fresh juicy hops, alot of nelson, some sweet citrus fruits, rather tropical fruits aswell along with a grainy character. Very good. This is "up there" along with my favorite pilsner "Vesterbro Pils".

330ml bottle. Clear golden colour with huge, firm, frothy, moderately lacing, white head. Grassy, strawy, slightly floral hop aroma, a touch of juniper, decent caramel malt undertone. Taste is dry hoppy with a decreasing slightly fruity undertone, dry hoppy finish. Nice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Mikkeller Bar, july 18th 2012
Clear and golden in color, with a white bubbly head. Aroma is a punch-in-face of fresh hops, apricot, citrus, passion fruit, taste is mostly the same direction, with crystal malt in the background, dominated by the what I beleive to be generous amounts of fresh hops, grapy and finishing in a bitter way with pineapples dancing around in my mouth. A very well crafted lager.

Bottle thx to benzai. Golden, slightly hazy orange colour with a decent white head. Smells hoppy, bitter, orange, grapefruit, fruity, fresh, nice. Tastes like an ipa with low alcohol. Bitter, grapefruit, hops... Very nice. Could use a bit more body and a bit more taste. Great beer though. Nice carbo.
