A-- Poured a clear dark gold color with a fluffy white one finger head that took its time in dropping to film. Decent head retention. No bubbles on the sides of the glass and just a bit of lacing. S-- Grapefruit and lemon hop smell with just a small amount of a biscuit background. Crisp and fresh smell. T-- Lemon citrus followed by grapefruit. Malt is a hearty biscuit like taste. M-- Not a lot of bite to this, more aromatic and kind of floral perfume like finish. Not a big hop driven finish and flavor dies off pretty quickly. D-- Low ABV at 4.8% so quite drinkable and refreshing, just not enough of a WOW factor to keep a Pale Ale fan interested. Good stepping stone from lagers to Pale Ales. After a while would want something bigger and bolder in the Pale Ale department.

On tap. Pours a cloudy golden with an off-white head leaving a discreet lacework. Fresh citrus in the nose, dry but also somewhat dusty. Very lively - bordering over carbonated - dry and grapefruitish with a lightly astringent finish. 080912

On tap @ Beer Temple. Pale blonde color, hazy. Enormous white head, rocky, good lacing. Aroma’s: citrus, with retronasal something like smoke and/or wood, earthy. Flavor is lightly bitter, a bit roasted? Light bodied. Finishes dry, with lots of hop aroma, but just mildly bitter.

Defreni (2649) - Husum, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2012
Fad: Fint eksempel på at andre lande har taget den amerikanske pale ale til sig. God duft af citrus med en god del zest i sig. Meget drikbar med en fin bitterhed til at bakke sødmen op med.

Rangi (605) - NEW ZEALAND - AUG 24, 2012
Poors a murky off yellow colour but what a nice fruity aromatic beer with sweet fruits and citrus to balance. Lively on the tongue and thirst quenching very different from the usual pale ale and another I will be buying for the up coming BBqs this summer.

Ungstrup (29846) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2012
Draft. An unclear dark golden beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of citrusy hops, malt, and bread. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, citrusy hops, bread, straw, leading to bitter finish. The body is light.

Rating from way back in late 2008 haven’t seen it since in the west!
Too eager to get out the glass. At just on cool it foamed once the cap came off and poured a head strong, hazy and floaty ridden, proteined up Summer gold - definitely a ’pale’ ale. The head just all anger and foamy carbonation that persists and laces well. Bright hops on the nose; juicy, sweet and fresh fruit punch with underlying burnt sugar, rye bread and floral notes - nice. A gear change on the palate - why does my fruit taste of wood. Overly woody, dry, piney ; a little state forest in flavour. But then there is the ripe melon of the ever present finish to balance. A hint of pale nuts and grass add a depth. All this from a light bodied ale that is light on in the carbonation department. (33cL, no date stamp)
