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.

Palme (2988) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 18, 2011
0.5l bottle @ Henrik, Bergen. Pours a near clear light cloudy orange body with a small dense off-white head. Aroma is light fruity with notes of malts. Average carbonated and medium-bodied. Tastes light fruity and yeasty, notes of leafs and green apple, grass and something best described as beach. Ends medium bitter and light dry. Not to exciting but definitely drinkable.

Marko (3766) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 4, 2011
Bottle from the Kuća Piva in Zagreb, shared with Pekko and heavy. Poured an amber body with a big white head. Sweet grainy malty nose. Bitter herbal taste, really not distinctive, and not too complex. Strong long bitter aftertaste. Another O’Hara’s that I just couldn’t bring myself to like (only the Celebration Stout wasn’t like that and I loved it). Meh. Will rerate though.

DSG (5022) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 22, 2011
Bottle. Clear golden color with a small white head. Fresh aroma of floral and grapefruity hops and some biscuity malt. Nice hoppy flavor with flowers, some fruitiness and some backing malt sweetness (biscuits and bread hints), finishes moderately bitter with some citrus. Medium-bodied with a rather strong carbonation. I’d like a bit more bitterness, and the over-carbonation is a bit annoying, but the hops aroma and flavor are nice and make for a good drinkable beer.

Shared bottle at Cardinal. Clear golxden body. Creamy tanned head that becomes a film, leaving good lacing. Invitingly hoppy, grassy and herbal on the nose with notes of citrus. Light sweet, mild bitter flavors with a distinct aromatic character containing malty notes, but also hops, especially in the bitter and dry finish. Medium body. Flatish and smooth.
