330ml bottle - I swear that I searched for 'E.C.M.C' on Mikkeller's page (current and retired) before adding this - something is screwy here. Anyways, this is a brew produced for the European Cycle Messenger Championships, ostensibly being held in Copenhagen.

This beer pours a clear, medium golden yellow colour, with a teeming tower (uh-huh) of puffy, rocky, and chunky bone-white head, which leaves some stellar spooky forest branch lace around the glass as things evenly recede.

It smells of bready and crackery pale malt, musty orange peels, a free-range yeastiness, some further corn sugars, faint peppery notes, and some leafy, weedy, and piney green hop bitters. The taste is gritty and grainy pale malt, corn cereal, muddled orange/tangerine/lime citrus rind, reduced phenolic yeast, and more earthy, weedy, and leafy hoppiness.

The bubbles are fairly average for this overwrought, carbonation-freaky brewery (I'm talking about de Proef), the body a so-so middleweight, and sort of smooth, as the citrus pith thing somehow fucks with this otherwise unrelated metric. It finishes trending dry, the very generic orange and friends citrus element sniffing around for more.

Overall, this is yet another wan and underwhelming offering from this gypsy brewer who thinks his shit don't stink. There's orange here, for sure, but it's so neutered, that one is hard-pressed to identify it as such. Not really worth it.
