DSG (6242) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 26, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Tom Cís place. Thanks Yochai. Clear deep gold. Aroma of rather stale hops and some malt, a bit honey-ish. Sweetish malty flavor with a bit of caramel, a honey note, stale hops and a bitter finish. Medium-bodied.

My biggest issue with this bottle of beer is that it plants itself right in the middle. Itís fine, session able beer which if someone handed me a bottle of it on a summers evening I certainly wouldnít complain but as soon as Iím done with it I donít think Iíll ever think of it again which is kind of sad

RichardGretton (4274) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2014
Bottle. Amber beer with a strong head. The aroma is lightly hopped, and the flavour is very well hopped with a thick floral finish. Overall a nice American pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BeerViking (2630) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle, amber-gold, peppery hoppy nose with touches of dry grass and grapefruit, medium bodied with a a drying bitterness over juicy golden malt. Clean and crisp, with a long very dry grapefruit bitter finish. Very fine APA.

Deu (721) - Nantes, FRANCE - APR 20, 2014
500ml Bottle. Amber pour with a decent white head. Very aromatic with a decent amount of hops. Pine, grapefruit, toffee,cat pee. Very crisp, refresing and tasty. Certainly one of the best Irish Pales so far.

stravale (2224) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - APR 1, 2014
Bottle from Drinkstore [010414]
Golden, clear, big frothy white head, some lacing
Aroma of citrus zest, grapefruit zest, lots of citrus hops, sweet pale malts background
Taste of bitter zest hops, citrus zest, some grassy hops, plenty of hops in this, soft sweet pale malt background, not as fruity as aroma
Palate - soft carb, bitter zest palate, light sweet malt background. Finish as main flavour, long lingering considerably bitter zest
Overall - Decent Pale Ale, but taste not quite as good as the excellent aroma, less fruity than expected
