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.

MoritzF (8676) - Bochum, - JUN 30, 2013
(bottle) Slightly hazy, golden colour with a mid-sized, slightly off-white foamy head. Herbal, slightly grassy and subtle fruity hoppy aroma with a slightly buttery malty background. Moderately sweet and slightly bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a modest carbonation. Buttery and doughy malt upfront with mainly herbal and grassy hops; dry and moderately bitter finish with a lasting herbal and grassy hoppy aftertaste. Not bad but I missed the fruit character. 29.VI.13

0,5l Flasche. Orangenes Bier mit kleiner Schaumkrone. Riecht blumig, leicht fruchtig mit einer Note nach Toffee. Schmeckt malzig, nach Toffee. Angenehm!

Golden colour with almost no head. Aroma of malts, fruits, caramel, and little citrous. The same is flavour with little bitterness. An average beer.

crossovert (8675) - Illinois, USA - APR 10, 2015
33cl bottle. Golden pour, large foamy white head. Aroma is earthy malts, toasted, caramel, hint of tartness. Carbonation is sharp, flavor is earthy malts, hint of grapefruit, hrbs, some bitterness in the finish. Dry but not qute crisp. Well within its best by but still seems like the journey over tamed it a bit.

Ambro206 (223) - ITALY - MAR 23, 2015
Una birra sufficiente. Bionda scarica cn schiuma normale. Aroma leggermente erbaceo, maltato quasi assente. Dry hopping non molto efficace. In bocca è onesta, bilanciata, ben poco appassionante.
