COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This crisp, zesty American Pale is characterized by the sharp bitterness missing in many domestic pale ales. The clean finish and slight fruity notes help make our flagship brew a delightful treat.

Dark amber with a slight haze and a medium sized, foamy head. Aroma is kind of a musty, floral scent. Flavor is earthy perfume and a bitter backbone with a smooth finish. A little different from most APAís but not bad.

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2008 I retried this one, and itís pretty solid. Good balance of malt and hoppiness. Quite drinkable.

Not a hoppy Pale Ale just as it states. Wasnít bad, nor was it great. Lack of Hops is a big turn off for a beer in the Pale Ale style if you ask me. Has an odd aftertaste that stays on the palate for much longer than most.

Hazy golden yellow with a medium quickly fading off-white head. Aroma of pale malts, earthy hops, light skunk, mild citrus and caramel. Taste of earthy hops, light caramel and some citrus. Mild bitterness on the finish. Nothing really stood out about the beer either way.

Basic, but a step above other pale ales. IT has a slight bit of hops, and an unannoying malt bill.

12 oz bottle from a recent trip up to Wisconsin. Pours a glowing golden orange pour, good haze, with a decent frothy bright white head that dies to a decent film, laces better than expected. A fiery sunset glow. Aromas are subtle touches of lemon cookies, crisp pale malts, bread, some grassy hops. Subtle, mellow, a touch soapy. Initial is mellow, light bodied. Gentle citrusy lemon, grass, moving into bread dough, pale malts, and faint toast. Touches of soap, the lemon grows a bit more as it warms with a light but refreshing hoppy quality. Overall, a bit bland for my liking. Finish is soapy, sweet pale malts, bread, touches of grass and mellow lemon. I guess itís a by the book APA, with less hops than desirable. Clean and drinkable, itís an ok APA. Lemon cookies, in particular Girl Scouts Lemonades, decent bitterness into the finish grows. A touch of cleaning product. Meh.

12oz bottle- A copper body with a not so evident off white head. An aroma of hops and fruit with a taste of hops and malt. Not bad.

Ungstrup (29217) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 18, 2007
Bottled. A hazy orange-amber beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma is sweet with a weird fruit note and a light touch of yeast. The flavor is sweet with light notes of alcohol, and spices - especially coriander, and some notes of peaches. The body is watery. I guessed this as a Belgian style - though a boring one - not hoppy enough to be an APA.

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of Skyview. Hazy, amber golden with an off-white head. Malty nose with a light whiff of aroma hops. Fairly light-bodied with a subdued malt base - slightly biscuity. Very dry with some peachy notes, The finish is quite hoppy. 171107
