NOTE: The recipe ofr this beer changted significantly in 2011.

A light, refreshing, hoppy pale ale. A showcase for the incredibly aromatic North American hop – Citra. It has a lovely citrus aroma, with juicy fruit flavours in the mouth. Medium bitterness.

Pale, slightly cloudy pour with thin but persistent white head. Malt and stone fruit aromas, a little grapefruit. Taste is caramel and citrus, bitterness comes on fairly quickly, with a nice dry finish. Good one

Butelka 0.33L. Złote, lekko zamglone. Piana biała obfita, drobnopęcherzykowa - bardzo ładna i trwała. Aromat: słodki, owocowy, intensywny, mango, papaja, cytrusy i lekka cebula i piwnica. Smak: Chmielowy, owocowy, cytrusy i żywica. Goryczka niska+ ale przyjemna. Odczucie: wysycenie średnie+, ciało niskie do średniego ale piwo bardzo gładkie i kremowe. Całość bardzo pijalna i orzeźwiająca. Bardzo dobre APA.

Teku glass. Golden, yellowish, clear with one finger white head, which pretty fast dissapears, lacing is medium rather low. The aroma is refreshing, citrus, bread, orchard, some exotic fruits, in general light refreshing aroma. The taste i citrus, in the middle bitter (hops), and aftertaste is sweet, bready and malty, which is very nice, also some yeasty elements. Dry beer, light to medium body, flat, quite drinkable. In overall did not knock med down, but really solid beer, which combine citra hops and english malts. Really good for hot weather.

Barwa: słomkowa / pomarańczowa, wyraźnie zmętniona. Piana biała, niewielka, drobno pęcherzykowa. Szybko zanikająca, ale ładnie oblepiająca szkło. Wysycenie niskie do średniego. Aromat: słodowy oraz chmielowy (wyraźnie cytrusowy), ale nie jest specjalnie mocny. Smak: słodowy, mimo wszystko dość pełny, wytrawny z chmielową kontrą. Goryczka umiarkowana, nieco kwaskowa, przyjemna [ Sięgnąłem po SPA po przychylnych recenzjach innych blogerów. Niestety nieco się rozczarowałem. Browar zaleca, aby pić je świeże. Od rozlewu nie minęły nawet 4 miesiące, ale aromat już jest nieco przytłumiony. Smak jest również dość płaski, ale z drugiej strony jestem sam sobie winien. Czego spodziewać się bowiem po pale ale. Nawet special...

The Etruscan (498) - Tuscany, ITALY - MAR 22, 2014
White creamy full lasting head. Light amber colour. Aroma is malty, fruity (grapefruit, peach, apricot) with light herbal notes. Flavor is malty too with fruity (light grapefruit, tangerine and apricot) with light hoppy tones, ending in a balanced fruity/bitter finish. Light bodied.

minutemat (1286) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2014
330ml bottle from Beermoth. Bright and fresh aroma, pouring a slightly hazy blond. Presents a zingy grapefruit pith with a good use of citra. Refreshing but perhaps not as lively in the taste as I’d like, perhaps even being a tad watery. Still an enjoyable beer though.

craftycarl21 (2205) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 19, 2014
Draft at Churchkey. Clear, blond pour with a small white head and good lacing. Nose and flavor are lovely, with soft lemongrass, a hint of citric bite, lemon, touches of biscuit. Clean and effervescent. Immensely quaffable and really pleasant.

TET (1548) - FINLAND - FEB 14, 2014
A light orange colour, a head is quite weak and white. The nose is tropical, mangos, some papaiyas and gooseberries, nice fructose. Taste is slightly tropical but not so fresh as aroma, pine needles, medium bitterness. Medium bodied, mild carbonation, easy to drink. Not totally convincing beer, taste should be more fresh. Well, easy and tastefull, anyway.

visionthing (2581) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 10, 2014
33cl bottle from Drink Shop, Tallinn. Pours hazy pale golden with a white head. Mild fruity and hoppy aroma with some yeasty notes and pale malt. Moderate sweet with fruity and citrussy flavours and a rather mild, but pleasant bitterness. Pleasant and sessionable.
