COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pale Hops unite the best from the American and British traditions in ale brewing. With a complex malt profile and a solid foundation of floor malted Maris Otter barley malt, this beer is intensely spiced with some of the most expressive American hops.

Light amber in color with a pungent aroma of grape fruit, hay and oranges leading to a smooth palate with light breadiness and slight sweetness balancing the hops bitterness, which lingers in the back of the mouth.

Ingredients: Maris Otter Pale malt, Wheat malt, German and British caramel malt, Belgian Special B dark caramel malt, Amarillo, Centennial, Simcoe and Chinook hops. American yeast. 40 IBU.

RexTalionis (2701) - FINLAND - JUL 8, 2013
Draught. Pours hazy amber with a small off-white head. Light fruityness in aroma, feels almost tropical at some times. Also a bit of hay and grapefruit is present. Fresh grassy notes appears later on. Subtle grassy bitterness in taste, bit of mild soap and floral notes too. Refreshing and has a nice bitter afterpunch to offer. Soft and no sign of harshness, nice one.

humlelala (1046) - DENMARK - JUL 5, 2013
(on tap @ Café Habengut) Pours a slightly hazy amber with medium, white head. Decent retention and beautiful lace. Aroma is malty with notes of bread. Medium to light body, soft carbonation and a grassy, bitter finish. Flavour has more of the hops making it moderately bitter with a little sweetness upfront. Tasty but could probably be more fresh - at least I would have enjoyed more hop presence in the aroma.
