MIKKELLER GREEN GOLD

Mikkeller Green Gold. I’ve heard people raving on about Mikkeller so when I saw this IPA I thought I’d give it a go. It’s an American style IPA hopped with Simcoe, Cascade and Amarillo.

Red/amber colour, low carbonation with thin a head. There are some nasty looking chucky bits in the bottle. Boozy malt aroma. Medium body and moderate carbonation.

Vegemite malt flavour with some underlying piny hops but the vegemite comes back and takes over.

As it warms up is starts to get a caramel flavour and the hop flavour dissipates. It tastes like an extract homebrew with some hops thrown in.

Given it’s brewed in Denmark, it’s highly likely the bottle was quite old and badly handled in transit.

It doesn’t make me want to try another Mikkeller beer.

 

3/10
