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.

Bière de couleur blonde légèrement foncé est très légèrement trouble Au nez on va sentir les agrumes (citron pamplemousse ) Bouche on va sentir des notes de pamplemousse et le blond est bien présent une bonne amertume pour un taux d'alcool si bas !! Une bière légère vraiment sympa qui a du goût!

Keg, Beerdock, Crewe. Light & zesty pale gold beer. Grapefruit and orange aroma, plenty of tangy citrus in the taste, with subtle background caramel and biscuity malt. Some lemon sherbert in the finish. Tasty.

omhper (21889) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2010
Bottled, from Bull and Castle, Dublin. Clear deep golden, rich airy head. Aroma of lychee and pear. Freshly hoppy and fairly sweet with well rounded doughy malt. Growing bitterness. Pleasantly hop aromatic, though a bit sweet to be truly drinkable.

50cl bottle @ Bull and Castle, Dublin. Thanks Dave. Dorée claire, col blanc. Une bière citronnée ayant les bonnes qualités d’une IPA avec ce petit côté irlandais. Le dry-hopping donne une bonne note herbeuse au palais avec une très bonne balance entre amertume et un profile malt qui se veut discret. Un côté fruité de citron, agrumes et pamplemousse viennent agrémenter la dégustation. Une très bonne surprise.

tfredvik (1501) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 10, 2012
This one looks like a pilsener, with its crystal clear, sparkling golden body. The head is slightly off-white, long-lived and laces the glass very well. The aroma is fairly strong and is dominated by hops, but there are also malty traces in the back. It’s sweet fruity with peach, grapefruit and orange, and some refreshing herbs. Very crisp and clean! Moderate to light sweet taste with a moderate bitter finish that is quite long-lasting and slightly dry-ish. The hops are not surprisingly the main contributor to the fruity flavours: again it’s peach and citric notes, also bitter resin and herbs. The flavours aren’t as strong as the aroma, but still a very tasteful brew. Wonderful mouthfeel, the texture is creamy and smooth and the beer isn’t as light bodied as I often find pale ales with this low ABV. This is close to being the perfect session beer, I could easily drink this one all night!
[50 cl bottle, from Vinmonopolet Storo, Oslo]
