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.

.5l bottle from The Wine Centre. Lightly chilled which seemed to be just right. Light golden colour. Creamy head with light lacing. Hoppy aroma with a citrus finish. A very balanced taste of light grass and citrus with a lovely balanced hoppiness. Light carbonation with a lingering balanced hoppiness. A very impressive beer with perfectly balanced hops.

Pours a golden colour with an off-white head. Aroma is malt, fruit such as grapefruit, some grass and hops. Taste is mild sweet fruit leading to a nicely balanced bitter finish. Decent stuff.

O’Hara’s generally makes decent beer, but this one is definitely not amongst my favourites. It pours with a light ruby color and a very generous creamy head. The aroma is very nice - sweet and fruity, citrusy hops. I like it. The creamy body taste extra bitter and extremelly hopped which is not really what I like. I’ll keep away from this one.

Good white head; low sized bubbles. Amber color transparent liquid. Hoppy, fruity (apple), herbal aroma. Light to medium body; bitter dry finish. Taste is smooth and bitter. Not very complex but amazingly balanced. Apple hints.

Mpuntmuts (142) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 25, 2013
From tap. Clear golden orange pour with fast dissipating bubbly white head. Yummie hop citrus fruity smell. Great bitter hop flavor. The grapefruit and oranges come out really nice. Sweet and bitter are in perfect balance. Thin to medium body and tip of the tongue prickling carbonation. Very nice pale. Would drink this one again if the chance is there.

Clear, golden colour with low and quickly diminishing head. Intensive aroma of citrus and malts. Taste is malty on the beginning, after that appears strong and long pleasant bitterness. Moderate carbonation. Maybe it’s not outstanding beer, but really tasty.
