A decent beer. Definitely a spicy finish. Could drink a few, not the best pale ale, but worth a try.

Muted sweet malt initially. Richer bitterness than expected. Pilsner like bitterness on the finish...peppery. Lingers a bit.

Bottle from Mikkeller Webshop. Pours hazy yellow with white head. Mild floral and grassy aroma with perfume and some spruce and yeast. Bitter, grainy taste with some lemon, caramel and spruce. Mild and balanced but with a little bit hard finish.

Bottled. Okay. A little bit thin in taste and hop character for a pale ale. Mediocre.

tnkw01 (1677) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 4, 2015
Bottle. Very slight hazy, golden in color. Medium to large head with just a tad of lace. Aroma is very mild floral, grass hops, just a tad weak and watery. Taste is a nice crisp hoppy bite up front with a mild, not too bitter finish.

George999 (335) - Colorado, USA - NOV 27, 2015
From the bottle the pour is cloudy with yeast present suspended in the beer, the head is white, the aroma is yeasty and a little dank, the taste is a solid pale ale and carbonation is great, the finish is a little dank

zoucrew102 (1175) - - NOV 15, 2015
Bottle. Grassy hop aroma with floral notes. Pours cloudy golden colored with one finger of white head with excellent retention and no lacing. Starts with grassy hop flavor with slight notes of floral hops. Finishes dry with the floral hops really taking control with a strong bitter finish. Started off ok but the finish was a bit harsh.

chinchill (3779) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 13, 2015
{from notes} A good looking pale ale with a hazy, yellow-golden body topped by a good head. The aroma is, perhaps lightly mild for a APA and slightly more yeasty. The flavor is mildly fruity and spicy. The hops mainly come out in the finish and aftertaste. Feel: a bit too light bodied but well set carbonation level. O: very good.

A standard apa...nose is some golden hay...notes of lemon...taste is a little lemony...some grain...bitterness is spot on...appearance is exactly what you’d expect...what comes around is all around...
