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.

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.

Marduk (2967) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 10, 2014
330ml b. Clear golden color. Small size, fizzy head, disappears in a speed of light. Sweet, faint hops, disguised fruitiness in aroma. Metallic, hops, buttery, toffee in taste. Massive carbonation. Mild bitterness in aftertaste.

FatPhil (9591) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 8, 2014
330ml bottle
Pours pale gold, fizzy head settles to a few spots of scum. Slightly acidic aroma, harsh hopping, lightly husky grains. Watery, slightly sticky resins, carbonation a little harsh. Tastes industrial, a bit chemical. Resins in the finish, bitter a bit like artificial sweetener. This beer is dead to me, it’s everything about hoppy pale ales that I don’t like.

thebizbizon (21) - POLAND - MAR 1, 2014
Smells a bit grassy, earthy? Quite bitter in taste. All in all quite good.

kidmartinek (3742) - austin, Texas, USA - FEB 19, 2014
33cl bottle. Pours a hazy gold color with a huge 10cm frothy white head. Very frothy, lasting white head. Good balanced malt and hop aroma with mild sweetness and appreciable bitterness. Flavor is tingy. Danky bittersweet, but mostly danky. This is a dank beer. Those northern irish!

VictorStr (1421) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - FEB 16, 2014
En ytterst lättdrucken pale ale. passade bra till maten, kanske inte en öl om man bara ska sätta sig i soffan och njuta.

Blonde légèrement c uivrée avec un fin col de mousse. Nez de céréales et d’orange confite. Bonne amertume qui dure. Notes d’agrumes : zestes d’orange. Peu de corps. Bonne bière "de soif".
