Keg& bottles, regular.Dry hopped for extra aroma, this pale ale has a light malt base with just the right mouthfeel to allow the hop character to predominate. Grapefruit like bitterness is full and lasting and is balanced by a zesty citrus burst of aroma from two late additions of cascade hops.

Drafted in Copenhagen. Very enjoyable beer. Good Balance. It’s quite nice off draught, but might not work out of the bottle.

Pours a hazy golden color with medium white head. Citrusy aroma, herbal and white pepper, with a nice bready/biscuity malty backbone. Taste follows the aroma, lemony, piney, grassy, herbal and little spiciness, with a moderate bitterness on the palate.

JorisPPattyn (9247) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUN 2, 2016
Medium, light yellowish head over copper-golden beer, low carbonaion. Hops, slightly spicy and herbal. Sweet, pale & toasted malts; finish has the hops returning. Not really New World, but fruity all the same. Feels better than it looks, medium bodied at best. More than halfway decent.

imdownthepub (12908) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2016
Keg at Exils, Strasbourg, France. Hazy yellow gold with white head. This is pretty bland for an American Pale, sweet with a toffee, caramel background. Thin. Not great.

Grass, pencil shavings, caraway and thyme on the nose. Clear amber, medium yellow head, nice lacing. Honey, orange peel, dough. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Seems to have a herbal spiciness I often find in rye beers. Quite nice.
