Schnabelhund (73) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 23, 2015
Pours copper with an off-white head with decent lacing. The aroma is on the maltier side for a pale ale, unfolding notes of caramel and roast, while the hops contribute resin and fruitier aspects which are rather short-lived. The flavor follows the nose closely: caramelly and rather roasty for a pale ale up front, followed by resin and citrus peel on the mid-palate before a profound bitterness and warmth from the alcohol kick in to make up the long, dry finish. Decent.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5168) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 22, 2015
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a murky tan color with a bit of orangea dn a small foamy orange-tan head that left decent lacing. The aroma was malty, meaty, caramel and vegetal - rather bock like to me. The flavor was bitgter, drysih, vegetal, meaty and earthy - again bock like. Medium length finsih. Medium body. Meh.

Bottle - Cloudy golden color. Slight dry hop flavor with not much malt counterpart. Tons of floral notes on this beer that are pronounced.

runaway (67) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 9, 2015
12oz bottle pours cloudy amber with a thin cream head. Smells of orange and booze and faintly pine too. Tastes fruit sweet with a mildly bready malt note and a complex but mild juniper-spice-hop twang on the finish. Carbonation and body are average with an acidic finish. Surprisingly complex pale ale... hopefully it remains so after the AB buyout.

Squizzle (167) - Idaho, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Super pretty orange looking brew. On tap at Brick room. Complex taste, way more than a typical American pale ale.

markas101 (1955) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 9, 2014
33 cl bottle, Calgary, AB, Cnada via Zyn. Hazy amber gold. Nice caramel orange citrus aroma with some honey. Mildly carbonated, sweet, then a nice brown sugar honey flavour that transitions to an herbal hop finish.
