Breakfast Beer Tasting: Mikkeller/To Øl Walk on Water


It’s a rather a special breakfast beer today. It’s that much loved pastime of brewers: collaboration. And this is no ordinary collaboration; it’s one between the mighty Mikkeller and the equally mighty To Øl. So great things expected. Especially from something that advertises itself as “the lightest beer in the world”.

It’s a 33cl bottle and comes in at a-is this a breakfast beer record-whopping 14%. To slightly jump ahead, I wasn’t aware of this until I opened the bottle and then had to check the label. It’s a good job I’m not driving to work. Talking of the label, I rather like the simple design and apparently that’s the folks at Mikkeller and To Øl on the front.

It poured hazy golden with good carbonation and a medium off-white head. The aroma was a real mixed bag: lot’s of orange and peach and grassy hops, but malt and most definitely phenols. This continued in the taste where there were plenty of fruity hops but the overall result is of a sharp, alcohol-heavy flavour.

I don’t know if this is the lightest beer in the world, but the body is indeed light; something of a surprise in a beer of such strength. However, the backbone just isn’t there to neuter the high alcoholic content and its phenolic nature makes for a rather unpleasant mess.

Tyson says: Another? No thanks.
