COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed and matured with generous quantities of distinctive Amercian hop varieties.

The return of an old favourite! First brewed as a festive brew for BrewNZ 2004 where it won two trophies; Festive Brew and the Peopleís Choice award. Now returning as a limited release. Sweet, biscuity, toasty malt flavours support the stonefruit, pine and citrus U.S. hop notes.

Emersons have done it again, a beaut of a beer that exemplifies the style. The long lingering array of hops left the taste in my mouth for quite some time and the malt made me fizz at the bung. Easily one of the best beers I have ever tasted and will ever want to taste.

Maybe itís the water, maybe itís the hops, maybe itís Richard or maybe itís me, but this beer is one of the best on the Planet! Calling this beer a Pale Ale is the most understated understatement Iíve ever seen. I live in the US Pacific Northwest and we have hops a plenty and plenty of hoppy beers. I love this beer so much that I left my golf bag in NZ last trip just so I could fill my hard case golf carrier with Emersonís Beer - mainly the APA. I can only hope Emersonís makes it to the United States somewhere sometime other than In my DREAMS!

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 26, 2006
Bottled. Hazy orange with large white head. Hoppy and slightly perfumy aroma of flowers and grapefruit. Floral hoppy flavour with malty backbone of white bread. Finishes hoppy and crisp of grapefruit, flowers and grass. Really refreshing.

Marsiblursi (2989) - GŲteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 23, 2006
(Bottle at Plan B, Copenhagen) Pours clear amber with a big white head. Smells hops and a certain perfume I donīt know the name of. Flowers. Malty caramel sweetness. Fresh. Taste: Starts with fudge, carbonation and some hops. Rasin. Then the taste dies out and leaves a small bitterness. A bit watery. Malt.

Orange-rÝd Ýl. Humlet og parfumeret smag - nśrmest sśbe smag. Tydelig duft og smag af amerikansk humle. Blev dog drukket ofr varm, sŚ den er svśr at bedÝmme

thx to beerkŲnig. FG : 1012. Cloudy amber ale. Nice head with perfect lacing. Peachpitt, apricot and limy aromas. The taste is malty and dry. For me, one of the better pale ales. Aftertaste very smooth maybe somewhat too gentle for this kind of beer.

lachesis (756) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - MAY 26, 2006
Nice hazy orange-amber beer with a nice off white to slight beige froth. Aroma is very original and complex. It has touches of apple shampoo, stone fruits, malts, honey, maple sirup, sweet Bual Madeira and fine hops. The taste is malty and slight dry. There is a fait crispy sourness of lime zest and a good dosis of fine hops. In the afthertaste you can notice touches of pepper, bark, cedar wood and some hints of a cigare case. Very original and tastefull beer.
