Un pale ale très malté. Pas trop amer. Facile à boire et très agréable mais rien de trop spéciale. Très bien équilibré. Couleur du cuivre avec un tête moyen beige. L’arôme est du malt et agrumes mais c’est un peu sourdine.

Bottle. Clear amber color with ivory head. Subtle floral, citrusy hop aromas. Medium bodied with average co2. Nice mildly bitter citrus, floral hop flavors with lightly sweet pale malt---good.

Gerbeer (1736) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 2, 2014
650 ml bottle. Pours a yellow/copper with very light head. Aromas of brown sugar, rubber, dry fruity marmalade and pine. Flavors of toast, pine, and bitter citrus rinds. Clean, bitter finish but expecting more based on the aromas.

Westchesterco (905) - mclean, Virginia, USA - AUG 2, 2014
On tap at Thai me up in Jackson Wyoming it is a clear light ambercolor with a creamy head due to the fact it is a nitrous. It has a pineapple aroma and the taste is light and bitter on the palate

Barreras (969) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Pours an amber color with a floral aroma. Taste is crisp, clean, and slightly bitter. The hops flavor comes through with a mild fruit flavor. Served on nitro which gave it a slight creamy flavor.

On nitro draft at a Thai Me Up. Pours a clear amber with a thick white head. Fruity nose. Malty notes. Soft mouthfeel. Smooth finish.

daknole (9052) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 31, 2014
Nitro pour at mellow mushroom. Very fruity beer. Hops are pretty much lost in a maltier almost sweet pale. But it’s not bad at all. Very refreshing.

DocLock (7829) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2014
Draft at Craft. Hazy dark straw pour with off white head. Nose was tropical fruit, hops, pale malt. Tasted hoppy, with notes of grapefruit, melon, and pale malt. Crisp finish.

Oly (35) - Crawfordsville, Indiana, USA - JUL 29, 2014
Poured a nice hazy orange from a bomber into a pint glass. Aroma was pine with some sweetness and a bit of citrus. Taste was better, with a great balance and more hop character than you’d expect with its 58 IBUs. A touch more carbonation than I would like, but that’s a minor quibble. This had just the right balance of flavor and easy-drinking quality for a hot summer day.
