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, 33cl, as Black Isle Organic Goldeneye Pale Ale, 5.6% abv) Clear, deep golden colour with a mid-sized and slightly off-white foamy head.

Moderately bitter and slightly sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a well-carbonated, almost dry mouthfeel. Cara-malty, slightly bready base with fruity hops; bitter-sweet, balanced malty and hoppy finish with notes of fruit-confit. 08.VIII.13

Bamsen78 (2886) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 28, 2013
Bottle from McTapps - thank you so much, Sabine! Pours clear orange with small but stable off-white head. Clear aroma of hops with distinct flowery notes. Intense, bitter hoppy flavour with subtle citric and floral notes. Bitter aftertaste with some unwelcome notes of metal. A good thing, but it would be better without the metallic finish.

stefannilssons (1446) - SWEDEN - AUG 16, 2013
Tja, det här var väl en helt okej öl även om den inte riktigt föll mig i smaken. Doften och smaken är torr och konservativ, den för tankarna till England helt enkelt. Men även om den inte föll mig helt i smaken så kan jag uppskatta hantverket här.

VictorStr (1201) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2013
Ljust brun, vitt skum som stannar kvar i en minut eller två. Lite dov aroma. Bra humle och beska i smaken.

McTapps (3558) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 10, 2013
Pours out in a clear amber colour with steady low head and medium body. Nose of hops and citrus. Taste of young, aromatic hops, grass, citrus, coriander, lemon and thyme. Grassy and citrus, very dry finish. Quaffable, refreshing, easy to drink - good and really nice ale.

Classic IPA-style piwo with a nice hoppy and citrus nose. Full bodied, dry in the end and quite delicious. To recommend.

Bathory (458) - Bryne, NORWAY - JUL 30, 2013
Pours a hazy light copper colour with a good white head. Aroma of apricot, grass and some floral notes at the end. Caramel, peach, apricot and honey makes a good balanced taste. Really refreshing. Easy to drink, yet composed by quite a few different flavours. Soft carbonation, which makes the different tastes shine better through. Low bittermess for a pale ale, but this is the way I like it. Overall this was a fantastic beer.

Idiosynkrasie (3584) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 21, 2013
330ml bottle. Clear dark golden colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lasting, white head. Minimally piney hop aroma, a touch of wet hay. Taste is fruity hoppy, tangerine, a touch of peach, some grapefruit and citrus, minimally sweet pale and caramel malty basis; soft palate. Nice.
