Revelation Cat Cream Ale – Mikkeller (Denmark)

Revelation Cat Cream Ale – Mikkeller, 5% ABV, (Denmark)

“A Cream Ale inspired by the pre-prohibition America with Mikkel of Mikkeller”

My notes:

  • My Rating: C+
  • Why I don’t love it: not enough depth, carry, or complexity
  • Where I got it: Keg n Cork
  • How much: $5 , June 2012
  • Do I love this enough to drink it again: no
  • Would I recommend this to beer aficionados: not really

Tasting notes: pours cloudy orange with a decent thick foamy head, lots of active CO2 streams. Tangerine oils, orange blossom, and hops on the nose. Drinks with a rather straight-forward, one-dimensional bitter orange peel, grapefruit peel up until the finish of sharp bitter hops and light malts. Dry finish. Low-medium complexity, medium depth, good transitions, okay carry, good drinkabililty. Above average, but not terribly exciting.
