Lines on outer surface (Extrusion problem?)

Hello,

I have a UM2 with Olssen Block and 0.4 nozzle.

Today I wanted to print a housing, which I already made a couple of times. But at this time, the quality of the surface is very very poor:

I use Simplify3D and Colorfabb PLA/PHA.

I did not make huge changes in the settings im comparison to the previous prints. No I wonder why the one looks this bad...

My first guess would be the filament "age". It was a 2.2 kg spool which I use since December 2015. So I might got wet due to the humidity in my room. But I do not hear any zips during printing....

I have already ordered a new spool, to see whether it is to blame on the filament quality.

Which other factors could lead to such bad surface?
