This is my first taste of this style of Mikkeller, but love almost everything else they make.

Honestly, the beer poured out pretty cloudy and full of little yeasty chunks. It didn't put me off, necessarily, but it is certainly worth noting. Especially since this beer has been upright on the shelf at the store, and it was transported home the same way. I thought it would settle more.

The copper color certainly adds a nice appeal, and the head is sticking around the entire time--good foam. A little of the yeast has started to settle.

Although this beer is meant to feature the Simcoe hop (which it does), the malt is what really comes through for me. I was expecting a little more bitterness. It's definitely there up front, but this beer finishes on the malty side. It reminds me of DFH 90 minute.

This beer gives a nice roll around the tongue. Very well rounded, even though the malt dominates for me. Carbonation is perfect.

Not a bad beer overall.

This was my first review. I hope it helps.
