Had this many times but its a classic pa. Aromatic cascade hops in aroma and taste, bitter enough not to be boring, sweet enough not to be too hard to drink. A harmonic and refreshing experience. Very good

bartlebier (3303) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUL 18, 2016
About a 6-pack of 12oz bottles every year since 2010-2016; also served during What’s Brewing 101 and sampled at tastings 2016. (This rating based on Bier&Co/Bierlinie import bb02/2017.) - Bref: This quintessential APA’s sweet & zesty aromas and appearance are marked by delicate nuances, its taste is straightforward and of an uncouth simplicity - natural carbonation in league with UK ESB’s tealeafiness makes this extremely moreish and addictive. - Easy parallels drawn to the US character are entirely coincidental. - Ap: lovely orangeat copper, impressive organically dented head. Ar: lemon candy, ice tea granules, flower petals, Thai basil, caramels. T: mainly dry grapefruit and lemon candy and sorbet with a classical zesty bitterness stopping short of pine. A tealeaf dryness (flowery Orange Pekoe, Lady Grey) and delicate carbonation crown this beer’s straightforward appeal for me. Simple layer of toasted malt biscuit with a caramel edge does the job. Lingering orange rind and pith bitterness, quenching and drying. - In league with Fuller’s ESB in terms of classic Anglo-American ales. Is it the whole cone hops that make this beer feel so natural? Can easily cut through a 6 pack of this classic when nearer to the source.

PotjeBier (2621) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 17, 2016
12 oz bottle @ a friend’s. Clear golden to orange color. Rocky off white head. Aroma’s: fruit, ale-yeast. Fruit, some herbal hops and light malt retronasal. Flavor is moderate bitter with light sweetness. Medium bodied. Long, moderate bitter finish. I’d like to retry this fresh from draft, if I ever make it back San Fran.

Sweet aroma. A bit weissy. This is like a mix of pils and weiss and ale. Sweet and hoppy. Noticed this one in the book 101 beers to drink before you die.
