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.

bigguns22 (675) - Maryland, USA - MAR 21, 2014
A very nice and easy drinker that is still a little different from most pale ales witch makes it a nice change. Aroma is dry,hoppy and sweet but malts are in the show case. A medium to lite body beer with a nice sharp finsh that is dry and a little bitter.

onceblind (4042) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 18, 2014
Almost clear golden with a thin semi-rocky head. Nose has a bit of mossy grass for a hop tone with a earthy but light and faint blonde pale malt backing. The taste is a bit sharp and astringent with some bitter grassy tones and a flavor of alcohol esters, some bitterness, and pale malt earthy tones supporting it. Not very pleasant.

Blonde or limpide, sans carbo, fine pellicule de mousse. Arome caramel, pain grille et agrumes. Bonne présence des houblons Assez liquide, amertume longue et relativement sèche sur le final agrume.

Bottle. Almost clear golden body with a medium head. Aroma has slightly caramelly Cascade hops and even something toasty. Thin mouthfeel. Taste has a light caramelly note and a dry hoppy finish with more Cascade. Quite typical pale ale.

0,33L bottle, BB 31.07.2015. Pours golden with white head. The head doesn’t stay. Aroma is fruity, floral, and grass. Taste is slight bitter and sweet, caramel, and floral. Overall: drinkable, but nothing special.
