_angst_ (4499) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 21, 2015
Draught @ BBB. Pours hazy pale golden with a small frothy white head that leaves a small trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is fruity and slightly grassy with crackers, grapefruit juice, mango, freshly cut grass, pine needles, minerals and lemon zest. Taste is bitter, fruity and grassy. Mouthfeel is crisp, slightly dry, slightly astringent and light bodied. Finish is bitter with crackers, grapefruit juice, unripe tropical fruits, freshly cut grass, pine needles, minerals and lemon zest. Solid hop profile and very refreshing.

phfyysik (702) - Tartu, ESTONIA - DEC 14, 2015
Pours light yellow with big white medium lasting top. Aroma is balanced, some flowers, hops, citrus. Taste is medium bitter, notes of pine, pineapple, pepper, oats. After changes little bit in time - in beginning it is soft and bit unclear, but give it a time. Afterwards you feel some chilli, citrus and bitter hops. Excellent!

BeerNinjaUK (243) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2015
Tasted some time ago - transfer from notebook. 330ml bottle from Honest Brew. Apperance when poured is pale ever so greenish tinged yellow, with a tall rich white chocolate coloured head with big bubbles left with lacing. Aroma of sweet apples, lemon sherbert and elderflower. Tastes more bitter than it smells, with lemon and lime to taste, slight black pepper and coriander. Tasty and refreshing.

corkyrory66 (1394) - BELGIUM - OCT 17, 2015
Special pale ale, refermenté, non filtré, non pasteurisé. Trois céréales : orge, froment et avoine. Houblonné au citra. Niveau abv de 4,1 %. Et, comme dit son brasseur : hoppy, fresh and light. Exemplaire à 9 mois d’âge. Couleur jaune citronné, à la clarté nette, pure. Bulles fines par centaines, comme un perlé de champagne. Superbe. Mousse d’un blanc pur, épaisse, à texture ferme en haut. Sublime. Arômes avec les tropiques en direct par les fruits, et l’Angleterre par les blés d’or. Magnifique. 1ère bouche souple à la sublime entame malt/houblon, à forte dominante houblon. Arrière-bouche pointue, fine, précise, longue. 2ème avec ce magnifique houblon qu’est le citra. Arrière-bouche longue, fine et également complexe. 3ème au superbe ensemble malt/houblon. Arrière-bouche divine. Longueur qui explore toutes les nuances du houblon. Jambes fines, bien marquées. Levure fine et précise, belle ligne. Alcool léger, mais tout à fait adéquat pour préserver le citra. Finale élégante, racée. CONCLUSION : pale ale non seulement spécial, mais idéal comme le palais du facteur Cheval .. Blague à part, un extraordinaire pale ale …

Nice lemon and grapefruit aromas on the aroma, this is a real summer gluging beer, with a fresh but bitter finish
