A true pale ale. The full body and rich gold colour comes from a blend of wheat, pale ale and crystal malts. It’s floral and lime citrus nose is created by the extensive use of carefully selected New World aroma hops. The final stage of dry hopping then produces a rich berry flavour for a big refreshing, satisfying brew.

On keg at Cloisters. A golden beer with a decent foamy white head. Smells hoppy. Aromas of fruit, malt and a little yeast. Fruity, caramel flavours. A little bitter with a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Also nice in a bottle but great on keg.

4/5 i mörkhet. Friskt och väldigt humlig i doften. Oljig, besk och lite torr i smaken men ändå fyllig med en skum besk eftersmak.

A pleasant pale ale, with the usual caramel aromas. The hopping was a bit lighter than in a typical american pale ale. I would have preferred a bit more carbonation.

Ingevara (804) - SWEDEN - MAY 21, 2011
Brown with a hint of ashes. Small proteinic head. Grand round mouthfeel with really bready dominance together with some marmelade tones and lots of hops. A solid scottish ale, nothing spectacular but very allround and very likeable.

olsvammel (3289) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAY 14, 2011
Bottle from Systembolaget. It poured a dark golden liquid with a medium to small foam that quickly lay down. Fruity and fresh smell, with ripe fruit and caramel. Similar taste, fairly mild. Fairly lean mouthfeel with a medium thick body and low amount of carbonation. An easy to drink English pale ale that doesnt stand out.
