3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I saw a few of these in the store the other day and immediately thought, support the locals! This pours a dirty gold color with a nice frothy white head that leaves ample lacing. The aroma is of caramel, bread, cereal grain, and light floral notes. This goes down nicely with sweet caramel, mineral, grass, and citrus flavors. Slightly dry and hoppy finish. There’s a little bit of bitterness here but not a ton. Medium-bodied and a bit toasty. This is solid stuff. I look forward to trying others from this brewery.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz Bottle. The pour was a cloudy medium yellow with a light reddish hue and a small (1 finger or less) white frothy head that was mostly lasting, eventually receding down to a thin film and possessed some good spotty lacing.
The aroma was of a grain malt, floral hops and a soapy yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (orange).
The taste was lightly malty and bitter sweet with a hint of caramel from the onset, progressing with a mild citrus sweetness and a bitter hop finish. The flavor lasted an average duration with a fruity hoppy taste settling in on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was a few steps above light in body, watery and a tad dry in texture with a lively carbonation.
Overall a very good Pale Ale, which possessed a decent hoppiness that was set off slightly by a mild citrus sweetness...

Pours golden with a creamy white head. Nose is of citric, lime hops and some toasted malts. Slightly drying, toasted malts medium-to-low bitterness, round mouthfeel. A bit of lemon fruitiness in the flavor as well. Drinkable slightly off-the-wall APA.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle from smith4498, thanks Jason! Pours a somewhat hazed, deeper gold colored body with a thin, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is fruity citrus florals and grass with a bready pale malt backing. Some decent lemon, grapefruit, and orange notes with a slight sharpness. Flavor is similar. Lots of floral citruses up front with a bready pale malt backing and a caramel sweetness. Finishes dry and moderately bitter with some malt sweetness and a good amount of citruses. Fairly lengthy aftertaste following a medium-light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, nothing special, but a pretty decent pale ale. Enjoyable enough.

Not a bad brew at all. Nose is sweet citrus fruits (orange) and light caramel malt. Not much else going on there. Average. Very sweet nose though. Pour is nice with a golden/bronze color and a big foamy head and solid lacing. Taste is grassy hops with some grapefruit and pine tree on the finish. Malt and sweetness hit you upfront with some lingering straw notes. Pretty nice actually.

Tasting at Papsø’s
Hazy golden color. The aroma is fruity, flowery, and with some herbs and yeast, some soap. Dry mouthfeel, with some fruits, but also too much yeast.
Something is wrong.
