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.

JanLaursen (3063) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2013
Bottle, 33 cl. almost clear golden amber with a small white head. Soapy, perfumed nose of citrus, orange, passionfruit. Flavor has light caramel notes and a light citric hop punch. Medium bitter finish. Average carbonation. Refreshing on a hot day.

Nische (675) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - JUL 8, 2013
Macro pretending to be micro. Not very much of anything. Some slight bitterness but overall just another macro "ale" that taste about the same as a boring lager.

Hermod (3139) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JUL 8, 2013
33cl bottle. Unclear golden, thin white head. Slightly fruity, nutty aroma, distant skunky off-notes. Flavor has caramel, hops, floral notes. Finish s sharp, short and quite biting bitter with some caramel as well. Light to medium bodied. Without the off notes in the aroma, quite enjoyable.

larsga (6177) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 28, 2013
Small offwhite head. Clear amber body with some small particles and very light carbonation. Light nutty caramelly aroma with wooden notes. Dryish earthy caramelly taste with papery wooden notes. Mid-to-light body. Slightly sharp mouthfeel. Dry-bitter wooden earthy aftertaste with spicy metallic notes. Too sharp and one-dimensional, really. (0.33l bottle, Systembolaget, Charlottenberg.)

airikka (12) - SWEDEN - JUN 24, 2013
Light golden with white head. Some bitterness in taste, but nothing remarkable. Is this an ale (it says Eco Ale)?

daje (2254) - NORWAY - JUN 11, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget, march 22nd 2013. Another macro pretending to be a micro, what’s wrong with honesty? Clear golden body, tiny white disappearing head. Light caramel aroma with honey and earthly hops. taste is also light, with hay and a flower hop note dominating. Neither aroma or taste is actually bad, it’s just too little of it all to satisfy. On to aftertaste there’s vegetables and metal, which destroys this beer for me.

stefannilssons (1458) - SWEDEN - JUN 9, 2013
Jag hade inga direkta förväntningar på den här ölen, och det visade sig vara ett smart drag för att undvika besvikelse. Aromen är inlemmas med svaga nyanser av koriander. Smaken är bitter med torra gräsaktiga toner, kort sagt var det här ingen höjdare.

nazzty (921) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2013
Too much carbonation destroys the impression and affect the mouthfeel in a negative way. The flavors are not quite up with the nice hop bitterness and then a distinctly annoying sourness in the aftertaste.

BillHick420 (424) - North Dakota, NORWAY - MAY 19, 2013
Pours pale straw, some minimal head. Tastes like pilsner, some bitterness of hops, and a slight hint of citrus. Okay but too bland for me.

Roberdus (4) - Enschede, NETHERLANDS - MAY 10, 2013 does not count
Offcourse a bottle from the systembolaget in Stockholm, cooled in a hotelroom cocktailbar fridge. It looked nice and promising, placed in between the ipas and tripple. Nice top when poured, although it disappeared quite soon but that might have been the hotel wine glass. A tastefull little too hoppy afrertaste, I like an IPA full of hop but this doesnt fit the taste of the pilsner like beer. Smells really good somewhat fruity hops. First zips had typical cardboard-like, muffy bite, hence my rating. Have to say the last few zips were much better probably because the aftertaste now has fully taken over my taste and i am now expecting the worst.
