Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2008
(On tap) Clear, amber golden with a creamy, off-white head leaving some lacework. Fresh aroma of citrusy hops. Medium-bodied with lightly sweet caramel notes before some excellent aroma hops in the finish that has a solid bitterness. More American than English Pale Ale. 300108

Bottle thanks to will. Pours a cloudy orange with no head. The aroma is a pine and hemp. Medium mouthfeel with nice pine and grapefruit, light dry finish. Good.

DuffMan (9592) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 19, 2009
Bottle, purchased at the Invercargill Brewery bottle shop. Also sampled on tap at the brewery in Nelson when I was there a little over a month ago. Clear sienna amber with a big sudsy tan had that retains beautifully and leaves lacy trailings. Aroma of spicy floral hops and toffee malt. Sweet butter toffee malt with fruity hop character (peach, citrus peel) and an interesting spiciness (mace). This is a malt-forward, sweeter pale ale, but I really liked the hops it is married to. I’ve said before that I like a strong malt presence in my IPAs, and in this case I can say the same for this APA. I really liked this beer.

phaleslu (9415) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 19, 2009
Draft at the brewery. Pours amber with a big off-white head. Hops take up most of the nose, with some malt and caramel. The flavor is also hoppy, smooth from the malt, and sweet from the caramel. Just a little bitter, as expected from one with the hops so prominent. Straightforward and pretty good overall.

sunevdj (3963) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - MAR 21, 2008
On tap at brewery. Pours a clear dark amber with an off-white head and some lacings. Smells of hops and alcohol. Quite bitter with a heavy maltbase. Also strong hops aromas. But a bit too unbalanced towards the malts and caramel. Heavy bodied. Medium to low carbonation. Long and very bitter finish with citric and grape hops aromas. Very robus beer.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 25, 2007
Bottle, poured a slightly effervescent reddish-copper with a foamy yellowish head. A good juicy malt aroma with spicy hops of orange and cinnemon. A moderate bitterness on the palate, fruity flavours at first, then getting more dry and tangy in a long finish. A well brewed Pale Ale.

Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 12, 2012
Light amber colour, almost rosy-gold with a thin white head. Excellent hoppy perfume of honeysuckle and pine resin., Evident in the flavour with plenty of good carbonation and a tingle of bitterness on the sides of the tongue. Not overly complicated and a perfectly quaffable pint.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - APR 11, 2009
Draught at Founders Brewery, Nelson. Pours copper with a medium white head. Aroma of caramel, grapefruit, kiwifruit, lychee and pine. Similar flavour with a smooth mouthfeel and lingering bitterness in the finish. A standout beer from these guys.

beerledgend (1196) - Waterloo, Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 21, 2008
Hazey bronze colour with big off white head. Big hop aroma. Honey accent. Well balanced malt and hop flavours, mild tangy mouthfeel. Cross between an amber ale and an Amercian pale ale.
