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.

Geruch leicht C-hopfigm ansonsten aber vor allem herb. Im Geschmack auch, zum ende hin leicht astringierend. Ein PA ohne massiv C-Hopfen! ;)

Bottle @ Republikken, Kolding.
Pours clear orange amber with a medium, staying, creamy, off-white head. Good lacings. Aroma has good, fresh hoppiness, peachy. A hint of metal. Low carbonation, a bit light but fine creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is soft, light malty, doughy, light biscuity. Fine fruity and floral hoppiness with a good, bitter bite. Quite delicious.

Sigmund (5129) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 1, 2011
500 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 5.2%. Dry hopped. Golden colour, big white head. Strong fruity / citrussy aroma of Cascade and Amarillo hops, some hints of stale / rotting citrus peel too. The flavour is also citrussy and zesty, with a proper bitterness in the finish. Quite good.

wyzzywyz22 (1961) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2011
Bottle from O’Brien’s, Ashbourne, Co Meath. Poured a slightly hazy orange colour with a mid sized white head. Aroma and flavour had some notes of citrus and grassy hop. Pretty lively carbonation. Dry bitter finish. Straightforward, but perfectly drinkable and a decent take on the style. Ireland could do with more decent beer and this is a step in the right direction.

onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - DEC 6, 2011
This is a nice development on the Irish beer scene; a good solid medium strength ale on bottle. Moderately hoppy, clean and very drinkable. A sort of go-to beer.

Fairly clear light orange with a small foamy head. Grape fruit, caramel and some grass in the aroma. The flavour is bigger, fruity and earthy, with grapefruit and some restrained caramel. Moderately long finish. Light palate.

TET (1659) - FINLAND - OCT 6, 2012
A yellow beer with a almost medium and blond head. Aroma is fresh and fruitfull, some tropical fruits, peaches, mangos and fructose. Taste is biscuity, citrusfruits, some caramell and grapefruity sourness, quite dry and slightly herbal aftertaste. Medium bodied, slightly biting carbonation, fresh to drink. Fresh, citrusfruity and easy beer.
