marcus (6359) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Bottle from Star Grocery, Berkeley. Pours hazy golden with a rich off-white head and ad citrus aroma. There is a hearty pale malt flavor with lots of toffee and a smoothly bitter finish. Nicely balanced.

after4ever (6088) - Brier, Washington, USA - SEP 16, 2012

lusikka (6043) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 29, 2012
330 ml bottle.
Pours a copper amber colour with a white lacy head. Aroma of bready malts, grass, wet carpet(!) and earth. Flavour of really strong and bitter hops, malts, floral notes, weak fruitiness and some caramel. Medium bodied, thick mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Finishes very bitter with caramel sweetness. Actually has some German elements, possibly from the maltiness. Not the best Hipster Ale.

mcberko (6029) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 15, 2013
12 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy vibrant orangey amber with a substantial beige head. Nose smells like a highly adjuncted pale lager, to be honest, with notes of corn. Flavour is much better thankfully, with highly bitter grassy dry hops and a biscuity malt backing. The astringency lingers on and on, with notes of dry grassy hops. Decent stuff.

DrSilverworm (6021) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 22, 2012
11.2oz bottle. Pours a mostly clear yellow orange color. Very big foamy off-white head, leaving thick lace. Some grass and pine in the aroma. Hoppy, but flavor has a solid clean toasty malt aspect to it that balances it out. Good bitterness, but there is something soapy about this that is weird. Soft, smooth carbonation, more dry texture, medium body. Great pale ale for sure, has that unique european feel to it. But $8 retail for this bottle is outrageous, even by Evil Twin standards.

33 cl bottle. Vertical tasting with (Global) Hipster Ale.
Pours hazy orange color with small head. Aroma of yeast, floral notes, some wet carpet and malts. Flavor of yeast, earth, caramel, some hops, goose berries and malts.

Camons (5653) - Hasselager, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2012
Bottle @ home. Pours slightly hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of malt, light caramel, citrus, herbal hops. Flavor is malt, caramel, citruss, pepper, spice, herbal hops. Medium body, soft carbonation, nice bitter finish. 120712

33 cl bottle @ lusikka
Vertical with Global Hipster Ale, this was worse.
Aroma is rather stale with gooseberry bush, some ripe fruits and grainy malt typical go German lagers. Also hints of moldy cellar. Flavour is sweetish with resin, some grainy malt and moldy cellar. Not bad but I wonder if the bottle was ok?
