Mikkeller – Pale Ale Swindle – 5.6%
Another good beer by Mikkeller. Decapping gives virtually no aroma, other than a slightly sweet, non descriptive smell, however, once in the glass, the hop aroma develops into an unusual, yet pleasant wet clothes aroma with hints of sweetness. Certainly not a bitter beer at all. Noticeably this has great head retention, probably influenced by the oat presence. Good body, very pale and a decent mouthfeel with a wee hint of sherbet emerging. This ale works a treat on your tongue, a great deal of compact carbonation. Nice beer! www.maisondubiere.com in Elsecar, Barnsley.
