Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 24, 2008
(Can 37,5 cl) Pours a clear, golden with a neat, white, lacing head. Sweetish malt aroma. Medium-bodied, a little low in carbonation with sweet notes of malt, brewing cereal and an edge of cardboard. There’s actually a discreet whiff of hops in the finish and also some alcohol presence. But Pale Ale? Not really. 240108

Bottled. Golden colour, clear, no head. Dryish with clean, hard maouthfeel. There’s a hint of boiled vegetables before a lightly hoppy finish with medium bitterness.

Oakes (15797) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 12, 2016
On tap at the brewery. Blonde, thin head. A bit cidery/industrial there’s a little bit of body, but overall it’s a fancy pale lager/ golden ale sort of thing that lets me down a bit.

Sparkling Pale Ale. Bottle. Yellow colour with a short but big nice white head. Aroma of hops and some sweet maltiness. Good fruity flavour with some sweetness. Dry aftertaste. A good pale ale though a little to watery.

Was disappointed by this one. I really like their premium pale lager, so I thought this would have even more "character" as a pale ale, but it didn’t. Decent enough I guess.

Pale 375 ml bottle. Pale golden beer, pale malt and grassy aroma. Thin malt flavour. Neither terribly fresh, nor terribly good.

jgb9348 (5717) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 18, 2004
Golden coloured body with some light orange highlights and a thinnish white off-white head. Aroma of nice light hops (with more of a floral quality), pale malt and some slight caster sugar essences. Light to Medium-bodied; Assertive hoppiness (compared to other Aussies) with a strong malt backbone the whole way. Long refined aftertaste showcasing the malt, but bringing bitterness to the palate with the hops. Overall, a nice and welcome variation from the norm with subpar Aussie beers to date. I sampled this 12 ounce bottle at the Crown Casino on 03-June-2004 in Melbourne, Australia.
