COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle. It pours a clear, dark golden body under a dense, off-white head that lasts. Rather butterscotchy aroma with some fruityness. Some pale malts. The flavor has some bready notes, with caramel and a pleasant hoppy fruityness. Some bitterness too, lasting for a good while, keeping the malty sweetness company. Full body, very soft on carbonation, and it feels quite dry. Not much pleasant aroma in this one, but the flavor is quite nice. 140418

Andy_ (629) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 2, 2014
Clear coppery-orange beer with frothy off-white head leaving lacing. Aroma has wood, citrusy and tropical fruits and toffee sweetness. Kind of an English-American mix. Flavor is resiny and piney woody, caramelly sweet and a bit salty. Mild amount of bitterness on the finish leading into a salty and caramelly sweet aftertaste. Palate is medium full and medium carbonated. A nice pale ale that falls somewhere between an English Pale Ale and an American Amber Ale, with the easy drinkability of a Golden Ale. As the beer warms up the Amber Aleish caramel-pine needle-combination gets stronger. Bonus point for being organic.

MSBrindbergs (204) - Solna, SWEDEN - APR 2, 2014
Flaska från SB. Kopparröd klar vätska med en liten krona som dock lämnar spår. Malten finns där samt lite kola och blommig. Många skriva grapefrukt, men den hittar inte jag. Svårt att identifiera specifika smaker tycker jag, men citrus blandat med något mörkare, kanske lite rostat? Behaglig beska dröjer sig kvar. Stort plus för extremt snygg etikett!

kobberrød/brun farge. Klar og med lys beige skum som henger i glassveggen. Aroma av malt, humle, sødme og noe karamell. Frisk i smak med humlepreg. Lettdrikkelig, frisk og absolutt en god øl.
