presents well poured in a shaker with a decent white head. Not much aroma to this puppy. The hoppy taste really is refreshing and has earthly feel on the palate a good beer.

Can. Pours a light pale golden with a small white head. Aroma...smells like it’s a bit older. Sweet and caramely with every little hops presence, and what is there is a touch piney and very dumbed down to the sweet candy. Flavor is a touch hoppier but only in the lightly bitter finish. Still mostly malty candy caramel and toffee. Light to medium body and a sharp carbonation. Bleh, this isn’t tasting great

12 oz can. Pours a hazy a hazy gold with with medium white head. Aromas of citrus and tea; flavor is the same. Not bad for the price.

This beer had the makings of a pale ale, but I was a little disappointed with the overall taste. It is missing something.

Poured a nice gold with a light fruity aroma. Taste was of malt and citrus with a mid to strong hop finish. Not a bad pale ale - actually very decent.

On tap at the brewery - Deep amber pour with a big white foamy head. Flowery and lightly tropical fruity hops on the nose, with light, caramel malt in the background. Tastes sweet and fruity, with light lemon and a bit of grassy hops on the finish. A bit flat, however. Medium-bodied and slick in the mouth. Smelled good, but nothing out of the ordinary.

probably the lightest most sessionable apa I ever had. light pine hops and light malt in both the aroma and flavor. flavor is a littile stronger in the aroma but kind of a watery body.

Bottled@Monks Café Sveavägen, Stockholm. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is bready, slightly fruity and wooden as well as slightly herbal. Flavour is quite much the same. A rather dry pale ale which probably is near to it’s best before by now...

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Weak grain aroma, and nothing but grain in the taste. Did have some lingering hop bitterness---that wasn’t in the aroma or taste. Light amber color, and thin body. Not a memorable brew!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours amber with white head, aroma is citrusy with a bit of malt. Taste up front is orange and lemon, tangy, and heads into a bit of bready/caramel sweetness that bitters a bit at the end. Not a bad session beer.
