Pours golden-amber. Brilliant but with significant amounts of sediment, despite pouring with care. Yeasty film sediment left in the bottom of the bottle. Three-quarter inch , off-white, creamy head formed. The heads dissipated quicker than desired but retained 1/8 inch after a few minutes. Fresh malt and hop nose. Crisp palate and delicious modestly bitter lingering. Certainly moreish! Rather modest carbonation. Highly developed Belgian lace. A delicious ale!

danielst (306) - AUSTRIA - MAY 17, 2016
12 oz bottle: Straw blonde color. Grainy, hay, sweet corn aroma. On the palate it reminds me of a pilsner or a crisper Kölsch with an unexpectedly robust hop bitterness. Some nice ester-y complexity in the finish. Not your typical pale ale - a nice summer brewski.

Vignale (3147) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 13, 2016
Flaska från Mikkellers webshop. Riktigt fin maltkropp, stor för stilen, mjuk, krämig som passar bar med den lite gräsiga och örtiga humlen med en lätt blommig touch. TRevlig.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

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