COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Belgian-style Extra Pale Ale is brewed with heaps of sweet Mandarin oranges from Blossom Bluff Farms and California two-row barley. We dry-hop with generous doses of aromatic Cascade and Columbus hops and finish the beer with a hint of lightly toasted American oak.

Draft at sb. Pours a clear medium amber with bright edges. Dense creamy white head that sticks around forever. Tons of lace. Big orange pine nose. Creamy medium body with bright carb. Caramel, oranges, orange peel, and pine on the mid palate. Crisp refreshing finish.

Garrold (1243) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2014
Bottle from Beermoth, Manchester. Hazy, pale amber. Loads of lumps. Thin, sticky, white head. Big, piny, resinous, orange zest hop. Some rubbery fustiness. Background of minty herb. Taste is caramel sweet, for a moment, then orange zest bitter. Some dryness in there, too. Full, slightly greasy palate. Finishes long, earthy bitter. Good gear. Love that aroma.

77ships (3692) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2014
THANKS! More than half of a 355 ml. bottle. Orange, creamy white head. Nose is lots of sweetish caramel orange hops (I know that there are actual oranges in this but you could get the same profile with hops & this could just as well be hops – seems bit of a waste, same goes for the taste), there is some light grass bitterness going on as well. Taste is caramel mixed with light grass & same orange / hop thing, sweet caramel oranges with light bitterness in the back, touch dry yeast, floral, biscuit,… Lightly malty body. Nice but should have been more outspoken, considering the ingredients, bottle is gorgeous as with all Almanac beers.

Bottle at home. Pours mostly clear deep golden with a creamy off white head. Fruity berry like hoppy aroma with some sweet malty notes. The flavor is juicy hoppy and bitter with light pine, biscuits and orange notes. Very nice.

Ferris (3909) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 5, 2014
Bottle - Leafy pine and grapefruit. Hazy orange with a decent beige head. Bitter sweet pine and orange and a long bitter finish. Dry woody finish. I don’t get the sweetness of oranges, maybe an old bottle?
