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.

brnandersen (2009) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 16, 2014
Draught at The Shamrock Inn, Cph. Slightly hazy golden colour with a thin, white head. Fruity aroma with grasses, citrus, biscuits malts, some peach and pines. Taste is bitter. Medium body with a lively carboantion and a creamy texture. Finishes rather dry and bitter with fruits and pale malts. Would be rather good with a bit richer malt bill. Otherwise an enjoyable and straightforward Pale Ale.

BobyFischer (65) - FRANCE - NOV 14, 2014
Pale Ale à l’anglaise : classique et équilibrée.Qui a sa touche d’originalité : subtiles saveurs amères et florales.Jolis arômes dus au "dry hopping" / houblonnage à cru.Plutôt sèche, amère et résineuse que fruitée/florale mais relevée par un subtil houblonnage à cru. Pas trop astingante pour autant. Réussie.

erickok (3742) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - NOV 1, 2014
Golden body and unstable smooth lacing. Raw hops, green, plant like yet interesting and appealing. Taste is more classic straightforward, again different than an American style ipa, for sure. (33cl bottle from a Irish import products shop in Angers)
