Aroma: yeast and citrus very light. Appearance: transparent dark golden color with copious amounts of thick white head. Taste: mainly just clean bitterness that doesn’t linger on the palate, barely picked up on the malt. Palate: very light bodied and watery but lacking.

Moolesen (405) - NETHERLANDS - APR 19, 2016
Bottle 33cl. Red with beige foamy head. Nice hoppy aroma, pine and little citrus. Nice bitter taste, medium rich followed by a bitter finish. This would be a pleasant beer to drink in the summer, not too strong and tasty. Good one.

Pours hazy light copper, small off-white head. Aroma is earthy and zesty. Flavours of citrus, dried fruit, light earth, a little pine. Very slightly watery initially, but the flavours develop nicely. Pretty good.

willisread (1876) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 27, 2016
Bottle from Stone in Asagaya. Hazy caramel color with a velvety head that lingers throughout. Amarillo forward aroma with some lemon, orange, toffee, minerals and light biscuit. Good carbonation with a slight prickly bitterness on the palate. Good carbonation with more lemon and grass flavors. Finish is bitter and dry. Quite nice. A carbonated bitter.

Muggus69 (1866) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JAN 22, 2016
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. BB 13/11/14 Labeled as Amerikaans. Creamy white head atop a hazy copper body. Aromatic hop nose - lots of floral herbs, grass & spice, citrus rind & pine, touch of caramelly malts. Medium-to-full body, nice touch of malt chewiness, moderate carbonation. Doesn’t quite explode with flavour but nicely tempered flavour on the body - once again grass, floral spice & grapefruit/lemon rind. Bitterness somewhat subdued (for style), lingering spice to finish. Not too shabby - fail to see how it’s a Bitter of any sort though.

Lore (1892) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 15, 2016
hazy amber colour, medium sized creamy, slightly yellowish head; aroma of peach, tangerine, orange zest, some caramel and bread notes; taste is also dominated by fruitiness (peach, grapefruit, tangerine) with adequate amount of bitterness, some bready notes and pine resin; excellent beer, though for me, it’s more like an APA than a bitter

corkyrory66 (1210) - BELGIUM - JAN 12, 2016
American pale ale (apa) de 4,5 % abv, pour 10° plato, et 37 ebu. Malts pils et cara. Houblons sladek et amarillo. Exemplaire à mi-validité pour 2 ans préconisés par le brasseur. Couleur ambre pêche (23 ebc), à la clarté nette. Bulles très fines, partout assez vives et quelques moyennes par à-coups. Mousse beige clair, à flocons moyens, nappage stable à 2 mm. Arômes de houblons fins, malt riche, agrumes, pointe légère de citronnelle, et touche de framboise. 1ère bouche soyeuse, à la très belle entame malt/houblon avec une nette touche de tabac. Arrière-bouche à l’amertume ciselée, quelques touches de trèfle. 2ème avec houblon fleuri et pointe de baies rouges, airelles. Arrière-bouche très fine, complexe, incisive. 3ème avec des nuances ultimes sur le houblon et l’amertume. Arrière-bouche très longue, délicieuse. La longueur donne une infinité de nuances et d’assemblage, du bois de pin, mangue, lichee, groseille blanche, et. Jambes fines, groupées, serrées. Levure fine, construite, un peu épicée, très belle ligne. Alcool : malgré son faible niveau, il agit à très bon escient sur l’amertume. La finale se déguste à tous petits flots, qui sont chacun de purs moments de bonheur. CONCLUSION : l’apa bien réalisée est un chef d’oeuvre comparable aux plus belles ipa. Nous en avons la démonstration ici … Qu’on se le dise !!
