American pale ale made in London à la Unit 17. Niveau abv de 5,4 %. Cannette métallique (what’s???) de 33 cl... Couleur blond légèrement abricoté, avec un petit voile de levure. Bulles fines en fontaine centrale très vive. Mousse blanche épaisse à la belle texture solide en haut. Arômes de malt, agrumes, épices, herbes, pointe de métal (hurlant ..). 1ère bouche souple à l’entame sur malt, herbes, fanes séchées de pommes de terre. Arrière-bouche déséquilibrée sur herbes et métal (pleurant …). 2ème sur malt et herbes, un peu plus équilibrée. Arrière-bouche avec agrumes, et une amertume intéressante. 3ème bouche très jolie, fleurie. Arrière-bouche maintenant à l’équilibre, très belle. Longueur agréable, mais avec des passages à nouveau faibles, herbeux. Jambes fines, marquées, un peu huileuses. Levure correcte. Alcool correct bien que faible, il manque toutefois au soutien complet de l’ensemble. Finale inférieure à la longueur. CONCLUSION : formule en canette très discutable, et qui laisse d’ailleurs des traces de métal. En emporte sinon le vent, du moins la cote … Même les martiens en ont pris leurs fusils à rayons gamma ...

Can. Almost clear golden color, white head. Nice aroma has lot of fruits, citrus notes, hops. Fruity, hoppy, fresh, malty body.

gyllenbock (5913) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2015
Can, thanks SirLimpsalot. A bit hazy golden with a white head. Aroma and taste of citrus, hay, some biscuits and grapefruit. The finish was fairly bitter. An ok one.

Vells (1061) - Rīga, LATVIA, LATVIA - AUG 29, 2015
Simple even boring APA with some citrus bit tropical fruity, some sweetness, but overwhelmed by dull bitterness. Not disaster, but my first and last try

@ Basunen 15-8-29: en ganska ordinär Pale ale. Lite höig smak men annars inget. Ganska standard.

Parmenion777 (10) - - AUG 28, 2015
On tap - hazy light gold colour with a thick creamy off-white head. Big fresh citrus hoppy aroma; lemon. Good body, sweet, malty biscuit taste with a nice smooth bitter finish.

Very strong aroma - tropical fruits, citrus and strong bitterness (as for APA). I must admit this is the best APA that I have tried.

Another great beer from these guys. I’m becoming a big fan of Beavertown’s output. Better hurry and try them all to make sure.....

adster (533) - HUNGARY - AUG 17, 2015
Sűrű, opálos testű sör szegfűs, gyantás aromákkal, mézes beütéssel. Nagy formátumú kortyok, karcos lecsengésű, kristálytiszta ízjegyek. A mangós, grapefruitos alapok hosszú utóéletű, harapós zárással búcsúznak, ahogyan az egy american pale ale-től elvárható.
