COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

On tap at Naboen. Hazy light orange colour with a small white head. Aroma has floral notes as well as some hops. Some bread as well. Flavour is dry with notes of bread, hops, some grapefruit and sweet malty notes. Short aftertaste. A decent Pale Ale but nothing spectacular.

ElDesmadre (1623) - Mikołów, POLAND - SEP 19, 2012
Bottle. Light hazy golden with a medium head. Very hoppy aroma - citrus, pine, citrus, pine,... and grapefruit. Oh, some apple esters seem to be in here as well. Very nice. Dry body countered by a light oiliness of the hops. Decidedly hoppy flavour with a very bitter finish and an aftertaste of pine, citrus, earth and grass. Very tasty hop bomb from Ireland.

A tasty refreshing drink. Easy to knock back and has a decent alcohol percentage to boot ;-)
