330 ml bottle at home - taken from notes. Copper colour, decent head. Nice fruity aromas, frapefruit. Pine. Bitter body all the way through, sweet bitter finish. Nice drinking beer, nothing special though.

One of the more complex single-hop Mikkellers. This brewers beers always look great and this is no exception: IPA bronze with an enduring head. Quite a faint aroma of watery tropical fruit cordial and caramalt. Full mouthfeel - my favourite aspect of this beer. Quite a subtle flavour mix crowned by nice Orval herbal notes. Some grapefruit tartness and a dry, earthy finish. (33cl bottle from Leura Cellars. BB 6/10/13)

Hade inte ens hört talas om Apollo-humle tidigare. Tydligen en alfabomb på 15-17%. Kan ju aldrig bli bra att singelhoppa på en sådan humle. Fattar ju vem som helst

Tasted from the bottle, 08/03/2013. Aroma is sweet tropically fruity, sweet oranges, a bit floral. Taste is almost identical, but it's quite citrusy upfront and only then fruity sweet. Aftertaste is proper piny/hoppy bitter, lovely! Definitely recommended. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not bad but also not great. The hop was a little too much on its own. Had a little belgo like funk.

330ml bottle (BB Brevinga, Riga)
Wowsers, Ive rarely met a beer with an aroma like this - its like pouring caramel syrup straight up your nostrils! Slightly watery at the start of the taste, nothing really coming through the retronasals, despite the fizziness moving vapours around. Theres some dark sticky resiny hoppiness, and plenty of dark syruppy malts. I guess together theyre in balance with each other, but theyre both a bit disfunctional. Some huskiness and graininess in the bitter finish. Leaves the mouth a bit sticky. Very drinkable for 6.9%, it actually slips down quite easily, but in part that also means its a bit dull - theres nothing saying "Im here, and Im interesting" (sorry, I dont find sugar interesting). Perfectly adequate. I could drink it again.

Light haze on this darkish amber beer. Big fluffy white head. The head has a startling garlic flavour! Palate is smooth, a little soft and slightly dry. Creamy malt base - mild. The Apollo follows the head with more garlic and just a whisper of citrus. Finishes semi dry. Never had such a garlic led apollo beer!

Bottle from Blackhearts & Sparrows. Nice balance. Aromas of biscuit, bread, and light herbal notes. Taste is sweet and bitter, long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Amber, with a big frothy head.

Yorker (1939) - Herning, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2013
33 cl bottle @ home. Pours clear amber with an off-white head that leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma is caramel and mild floral and herbal hops. Flavour is floral, herbal, and caramel with a dry finish.
