The colour is amber-red (40 EBC), the liquid is hazy. The thee finger thick head is beige and airy; it sinks slowly leaving some lacing in the glass.

The smell is hoppy with notes of pine needles, resin and citric peels. There are thick sweet notes of toffee and beef stock. It is a bit unclean.

The taste is quite sweet with notes of butterscotch and dried flowers. Passing hints of smoke and delicatessen. Growing bitterness and citric juices. Medium body. Soda-like sweetness, prunes, perfume and lemongrass in the somewhat wort-y yet balanced aftertaste. The finish is sweet with caramel and a pinch of salt.

The carbonation is medium to strong; the fresh mid-sized bubbles are long-lived. The liquid is smooth and a little sticky.

During the last 6 months or so, Mikkeller has released a few low alcohol beers (< 0.5%) with or without gluten. This one is the least beer-like of them, it reminds of a German hop-lemonade that I had some years ago. Not a bad drink.
