A well balanced and very pleasing fresh crisp pale ale. Just the tonic for our Australian climate.
A great attribute is that it is not one of these OTT hoppy US ales that have flooded the market down here in recent times. This is far more sensible and appealing pale ale that would and does appeal to the larger market.
I have passed a few around to my mates and all have thoroughly enjoyed it which is a pretty hard task with most them.
My beer for the summer!

This was a bad ass brew. I would buy this over any other Big Sky Brew. I like this more than their summer ale.

Poured a light golden/amber color with decent white foam head. The nose was a nice potent, whisper of caramel-toffee and light citrusy, piney hops. The taste started with a sweetish, caramel-drenched maltiness that’s threaded with floral and lightly fruity hops that help to balance it and give it a nice dual character. the end was nicely backed by a solid bitterness that leaves it dry and refreshing in the finish. Alcohol content is relativly low and it’s smooth medium body; rich caramel malt character; and great balance, this makes for an excellent session ale.

Bottle in Anchorage AK: Inviting copper sheen with a brewy head. Malty nose. Coppery/bittery flavors. Nice metallic hoppiness and a cran-apple finish. Nice flavorful, yet light beer! Gets even better as you go. Nice tangy hoppiness.

Bottled at Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm. Lightly hazy pale amber, rich head. Lovely aroma of ripe mango and lychees. Fairly sweet with light-medium body and soft mouthfeel. Gentle honey atop light grainy malt seemlessly covered by lychee-like hops. The bitterness keeps creeping on, but ever gets aggressive. Perfectly balancedm unusually soft APA.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Beautiful copper color. Pours a rich, creamy head. Aroma of fresh bakery, but not overly so.
Flavor is lightly bold, & buttery. Like warm caramel but not really sweet. Quick finish, but it leaves a wonderfully bitter after taste. The bitter taste isn’t fully detected until after you swallow.
How did they do that?

Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Medium amber brew with a persistent off white head. Aroma of grapefruit and other citrus hops. Crisp clean flavor dominated by a fine hoppiness but supported by a solid malt background. Excellent pale ale.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fruity, hoppy aroma. Thick, fine bubble head with an attractive, mahogany color. Light to medium hop flavor, but with no bite. Medium to heavy malt. A smooth, pleasing beer, but not enough bite from either the alcohol nor the hops. A slightly above average Pale.
