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.

This one looks like a pilsener, with its crystal clear, sparkling golden body. The head is slightly off-white, long-lived and laces the glass very well. The aroma is fairly strong and is dominated by hops, but there are also malty traces in the back. It’s sweet fruity with peach, grapefruit and orange, and some refreshing herbs. Very crisp and clean! Moderate to light sweet taste with a moderate bitter finish that is quite long-lasting and slightly dry-ish. The hops are not surprisingly the main contributor to the fruity flavours: again it’s peach and citric notes, also bitter resin and herbs. The flavours aren’t as strong as the aroma, but still a very tasteful brew. Wonderful mouthfeel, the texture is creamy and smooth and the beer isn’t as light bodied as I often find pale ales with this low ABV. This is close to being the perfect session beer, I could easily drink this one all night!
[50 cl bottle, from Vinmonopolet Storo, Oslo]

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 28, 2012
Bottle 50 cl. Slightly hazy golden with an off-white head. Some fresh hops in the nose but also a buttery twist. Medium body, sweet and heavily fruity, slightly phenollic with a solid hop presence. Nice hops alright but the malt bill and the fermentation is not all that hot. 280312

lusikka (6206) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 27, 2012
Draught @ O’Hara’s, Tampere.
Pours a deep copper colour with a white thick head. Aroma of sweet malts, bubblegum and grains. Flavour of grassy hops with some floral notes, hay, bubblegum-like sweetness. Medium bodied and a dry and grainy finish. Too sweet and the hop profile is a bit weird.

KnutAlbert (6067) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 21, 2012

Sizzler80 (447) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAR 2, 2012
Dark golden pour with a white head and lacing. Dominant aromas of hops and barley with slight pine and grass. Medium carbonation. Its slightly dry and bitter from the hops. Not a huge amount to it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

CanCrusher (620) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - FEB 27, 2012
Copper/orange colour, almost without head. Typical IPA smell, but not too intensive - hay, citrus (grapefruit), pine. Bitter taste and aftertaste with long duration. It doesn’t disappoint, but I’ve expected a bit more from it.

Finn (4141) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 22, 2012
Flaske 0,5l fra Vinmonopolet, bestillingsutvalget. Gyldenbrun med et høyt bobleskum som varer en god stund. Fester seg litt til glasset. God fruktig aroma med innslag av bær. Myk munnfølelse. Litt oljeaktig. Smaken er dominert av bitterhet med en undertone av tørr frukt. Avslutter tørt.

Aroma is fresh with hops, grass and citrus notes. Flavour has hay, some citrus and hints of grass. Nice and dry, although I like my APAs more hoppy.
