COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Think about it. If nothing wasn’t here to keep things apart, everything would be one big, stressfull, balled up, messy thing. Probably boring too. Which is why pausing to enjoy nothing is a very good thing. With Hale to Nothing, of course. There’s nothing artificial or phoney in it. Only good stuff. Like organic malted barley and hops that give this ale its own, individual refreshing taste. We think that’s something special. So relax. Enjoy. Nothing in particular We use echological Pilsener- and Munchenermalt. For hops, we use echological Perle plus Centennial and Fuggles. It has a flavoury taste with a slightly hint of citrus. Hale is somewhat malty and well balanced.

Alengrin (3396) - BELGIUM - MAR 13, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2015 Organic pale ale from Sweden. Medium, egg-white, slightly lacing and reasonably stable head, leaving a steady rim around the edges; pure and warm, clear ’old gold’ colour with low sparkling - this looks more like a pale lager than like a pale ale. Somewhat skunky aroma (lightstruck hops) so, even if this comes from a brown bottle, this must have been exposed to light for a long time; other impressions I get are toasted bread, sweaty and sourish grains, a suggestive hint of dried orange peel but not to the extent where it suggests to actually having been used, flour, weeds, cigarette tobacco, iron. Minerally onset, dryish, sourish grains as in a cheap pale lager, some subdued bready malt sweetness underlying this, very low fruitiness though a faint suggestion of dried fruits is there, lightly nutty, somewhat metallic, with grassy and leafy, ’low’ hop bitterness setting in rather quickly and leading to a drying, relatively long, bitter finish, not unlike an English bitter - or indeed pale ale; lightly honeyish and nutty malt sweetishness lingers as well. Lacks body and character in the malts department to be a credible pale ale, though. Quenching and acceptable alright, but I can’t help feeling I am actually tasting some more-than-averagely-hopped lager. Not too good for this style, not really bad in isolation of style. Don’t know what to think of this one... In any case: big thanks again to Sabine for buying me this in a Systembolaget in Sweden!

Flaska på 1000 & 2 - doftar ljus lager men där tar likheterna slut. Härlig fruktig smak med en tydlig beska. Ljuskopparfärg med vitt skum.

Flaska från kollega, tack. Klar guldfärgad vätska med vitt skum. Söt koladoft. Smakar söt engelsk, som förväntat. Efter en kraftig iipa så känns den här lite väl klen men funkar.

Literally nothing. Almost no aroma, tiny hints of hops. When it’s a bit warmer, you can easily smell garlic. Boring taste. Almost no finish. The head is okay, though. Don’t buy it.
