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.

KØ15. Good caramelly and piney hop aroma. Almost clear dark golden colour. Small stable white head. The flavour is sweetish and nicely caramelly. Has a medium to high bitterness which is held nicely in check by the sweetness. Good chalky finish. Tastes like a DIPA but perhaps with less alcohol.

Bottle, pours hazy gold brown, small bubbly head which doesn’t last. Aroma is light medium cereal & biscuit malt, pretty hoppy, with a mixture of traditional & new world hops, orange marmalade with grapefruit. The finish is long and bitter, a bit unbalanced maybe, but I quite liked it

bought at the Drink Store, Dublin by MoM .. . Pours a wicker tan , decent foam .. . sap, balsa, and week old flower aroma .. . a very decent pale ale but lacks a bit of creativity - but still a damn fine effort! .. . That’s right a maid, a maid I can bang

tomer (2684) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - APR 15, 2011
0.5L bottle, medium head with some lacing that lasts for a very long time, clear deep gold colour, aroma of frius and herbs, flavour of citrus and herbs with strong bitterness that develops to an extremely long bitter aftertaste, the effects of the dry hopping are quite noticable. Nice session ale

Bottled@Cosmic Comic Cafe, Turku. Amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is fruity and floral hoppy along with some grass and mild maltyness. Flavour is quite much the same. Quite close to Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.
