COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cold Boy Pale Ale has been designed to offer pale ale with real taste and aromatic impact. The initial bitterness is followed by a surprising sweetness culminating with a long dry finish.

yngwie (13555) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 16, 2013
Bottle, thanks to Cunningham. It pours a pale golden body topped by a medium sized head. The aroma is rather boring, citrusy and lightly malty, very straight forward and boring. The flavor has a little sweetness, it’s citrusy and faintly bitter, but far from interesting. Nice carbonation level, medium to thin body. Well, it’s an easy drinkable beer, flawless, but superbly boring. The Norwegian consumers can take more than this. 121116

gunnfryd (10557) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 1, 2013
Bottle. Golden colour with an off-white head. Aroma is fruit, malt, hay. Flavour is fruit, malt, hay, hint of butterscotsch, hop. Boring beer.

rlgk (10514) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - DEC 1, 2012
Bottle from a trade with Cunningham. Clear golden beer with a small white head. Malty bready aroma, nutty and with a strange and rather bad hoppiness. Bready flavor, hay, metal, fruity notes, nutty, grass, a bit strange bitterness.

Rune (8044) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 17, 2012
500ml bottle bought at Meny Oslo City. Clear golden body, no head. Smell of hard water with fruity hints. Subdued taste of sweet fruits with notes of earthy malts. Brief bitter endnotes. Anonymous, indeed, no side notes though (hotel room, Oslo 11.12.2012).

Bottle 500ml @ home
Pours clear golden with white head. Aroma has notes of malt, grass and hay. Taste is light sweet and light bitter with a slightly dry grassy finish. Body is light, texture is thin, carbonation is soft.

larsga (6206) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 8, 2012
Medium offwhite head. Clear coppery body with carbonation. Caramelly nutty aroma with perfumy papery notes. Dry-sweet caramelly toffee taste with perfumy fruity notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish caramelly nutty toffee aftertaste with papery notes. Nice, fairly full-flavoured, but a bit artificial-tasting. Tastes much more like a UK pale ale (that is, a bitter) than a US pale ale. (0.5l bottle, Meny Oslo City.)

KnutAlbert (6093) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 16, 2012
Bottle. Light, English style pale ale. Golde beer. English hops, grass, citrus. Would make a nice summer tipple. Not outstanding, but an honest excample of the style.

gunnar (5293) - Sandnes, NORWAY - OCT 23, 2012

Sigmund (5116) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 23, 2012
Shared 500 ml clear bottle, at local tasting. ABV is 4.5%. Golden color, moderate white head. Moderate aroma of English hops, a hint of toffee. Reasonably refreshing dry flavour, tolerable hops in the finish. No masterpiece, but decent enough.
