tmoreau (2134) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - DEC 22, 2013
12 oz. bottle poured to a Czech-pils glass, showing a hazed, orangey gold color, with good persistence to the fluffy, soft white head foam, and spiraling rings of clingy lacing. The nose was light grain, perfumey citrus as oranges, with a hint of apricot scent. Light to medium bodied, with lively enough carbonation, the taste presented moderate malt, and moderate, lingering hop bitterness that was rind-like, with a bit of earthiness to it. A clean, no nonsense, sessionable Pale.

Bottle. Hazy copper with large off white head. Aroma of grains and floral hops. Light body of floral hop bitterness with some spicy notes and light malt malt backbone.

Strangebrewer (794) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 8, 2013
Bottle. Poured slightly hazy amber with a thin white head. Aroma of sweet malt and a bit herbal. Medium dry palate with a lingering finish. Flavour is grainy with tart citrus and bitter hops.

Pours a fizzy amber with a two finger head. Rather malty with no real hop presence. Good beer to drink all day.

Really good session beer. I like very hop forward beers, so the hop profile they talk about really wasn’t there for me. It still tasted good. Good beer for watching a game or backyard bbq’s.

This pours golden with an orange blush on it. It has quite a bit of sediment and it’s very cloudy. The head is fat and off white and fell slowly to a ring and film on top. Left soapy lace. Nose is citrus and a sweet malt. The citrus is faded a bit but it’s orange peel and stone fruits. The malt is biscuit and honey on the nose. The taste is muddled. It’s got a body that is a bit thick and it travels the palate slowly because of that. It’s not crisp or light. The carbonation is prickly and that’s a good thing and adds to the drinkability. The fruits combine for an all over citric taste that has a bit of pith and hop floral . The cracker malt starts out strong but then that taste flattens out in the drink and there’s hardly any finish. Spice doesn’t come forward until mid glass and by then there is a bit of hop oil to add to the slow body. Has a some herbal in the finish. It’s just ok.

Flaska. Både smakar och doftar med som en medioker lager. Den örtigt blommiga humlearomen, som bryggeriet skriver om, saknas nästan helt och hållet. Plus för etiketten; tyvärr var den inte drickbar.

Une bouteille bue dans mon camp de chasse. Batch 12388. Embouteillée le 3 octobre 2013. Une robe de Pale Ale avec sa petite mousse frétillante. Des arômes de grains pâles, de petites fraises des champs et d’épices s’infiltrent délicatement dans mes narines. Autour de ma langue se positionne des houblons bien épicés et des malts blancs (blé?) bien mordants. Au palais se vautre un liquide léger et bien pétillant. En finale se développe une sévère âcreté dans les mouvements amers amorcés par les cultivars utilisés. Ordinaire.

Not a bad pale ale. gokeen and sedimented. I like the bready barnyard taste that evokes the bottles farmland label. Aside from that nothing is particularly remarkable. Could be agood party bbeer. Drank it during a football game
