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.

Clean barley taste with a bit of cream on the open and a clean bittered finish. Avoids being overbittered. Built very simply, but balanced well. As coarse as the style can be without taking a turn for the worse. Very carefully constructed. Buttery, actually.

Bottle, picked up in Ireland at Ellen’s wedding. Light golden colour, quite a clean, basic malt bill. Dry. Quite hoppy, kind of generic crafty c hops, but decently bitter and a bit citrusy. A little over fizzy for me. Some slightly fruity yeasty notes, I don’t mind that. Simple but enjoyable pint.

Bottle on holiday. Pours light orange-amber. Slightly cloudy with foamy head. Overpoweringly bitter and without nuanced aroma but somewhat citrus aftertaste.

Gyllenbrunt med lavt skum. Noe frukt i duften sammen med karamell. Lite annet enn bitterhet i smaken. Veldig ordinær.

PlutonowyMan (512) - POLAND - AUG 25, 2016
Kolor bursztynowy, zm?tniony. Piana ?rednio wysoka, g?sta, koloru ecru. Redukuje si? do?? leniwie pozostawiaj?c mnóstwo zdobie?. Aromat slodowy z mnóstwem owoców tropikalnych i cytrusów. W aromacie jest ca?kiem s?odko z miodowymi nutami. Smak: ponownie s?odowo??, tutaj jeszcze bardziej wyra?na i intensywna, dalej s?odkie tropiki, cytrusy wycofane. Jest s?odko ale nie ulepkowato jednak brakuje rze?ko?ci. Goryczka jest niska, owocowa, tylko na finiszu. Wysycenie ?rednie.
