Cask; Keg & Bottle Conditioned; Regular.

A delicious beer. Hopped with armfuls of American Chinook hops, this beer oozes citrus flavour and aroma. It has a lovely sweetnes balanced with a lingering bitter finish backed up with a late grapefruit hit.

500ml bottle. Pours very cloudy amber with a small head that reduces quickly. Good hoppy aroma. Some mild tropical fruit flavours quickly buried under mountains of bitter hops and intense grapefruit. An exceptionally long bitter finish. Refreshing and satisfying. Love it.

Kauge (182) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 4, 2014
Bottle from Tallinna Kaubamaja (Ä 3,00) in Oct 2014. Bottled in Apr 2014. Pours a translucent pale orange with a white top (retains and laces nicely). The aroma is juicy, piney and grapefruity bittersweet. The one Iím having lacks freshness due to the bottling date, and has acquired a not pleasant pungent note - I remember it being better the other times Iíve had it. Taste is at first modestly sweet, then the nice hop bitterness takes over, leaving a lingering grapefruit seed finish. Excellent balance between bitter and sweet. Body light to medium (not at all watery), carbonation soft. For a mere 3,6% this beer is impressive - itís definitely among my favourite lighter pale ales we have around here. Love it!

330ml bottle from The Beerhive. Big frothy white nose settles quickly, a little lacing. Hazy golden body. Sweet nose, honey and lemon. Flavour is sweet fruit, more honey, bitter grapefruit finish. Good lingering bitterness on the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is good, medium carbonation and good bit of body, fills the mouth well. Really well balanced and easy to drink. Tons of flavour and low abv, a superb session beer.

Osprey87 (1821) - WALES - SEP 11, 2014
Bottle from Eebria. Very pale golden yellow, translucent, slightly sparkling, small ring of white head. Aroma is very light jasmine, slight metal. Body is light, pretty spritzy, slightly foamy. Taste is malty, lager-like, enduring saaz-ish bitterness is quite nice, but itís not living up to the bill as an APA. Too watery. Very average.

Clear pale golden color, small foamy white head, stays for a while, fair lacing; strong citrus nose, grapefruit, lemon; fresh bitttersweet taste (more bitter than sweet); light to medium body, never watery, soft carbonation; crisp light bitter finish. Good balance, you donít notice the low ABV. Really good.
