12 oz bottle into a Samuel Smith pint glass. A: Pours a hazy golden color that’s surprisingly attractive given its lack of clarity. The head is a typical one finger white shade. Not much retention, but good residual lacing. S: Slight caramel sweetness, biscuits, toffee, sweet citrus, and faint hints of pine. The aromatic qualities are a bit mild (especially hop-wise) for me, but are nonetheless enjoyable and even mildly complex. T: In general, it’s a bit low on flavor. The initial flavors are classically biscuity, before finishing with faint grapefruit peel. Hop bitterness washes out nicely after a couple sips. On the other hand, I feel like the hop profile could be more distinct. I notice a distant aftertaste of slight diacetyl and nuts, also. Not bad. M: The strong carbonation works well with the combination of a sweet, malty finish and resiny texture. I could use a drier aftertaste here, but this drinks fine either way. O: It’s a decent offering to have with a sandwich at lunch. Worth a shot, but there are a lot of other pale ales I’d much rather have. A bit too safe and inoffensive for my tastes, but it’s better if you go in expecting an English-style pale ale.

Hazy orange body with a small, lasting, off-white cap. Malty aroma with distant floral hops and a note of citrus. Malty body with minimal bitterness. Decent, but not my thing.

joejames (374) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours clear amber, one finger quick white head, light lacing and retention. Aroma smells like leather and barnyard. Taste is light sweet, light bitter. Light bodied, light carbonation, watery mouth feel. Finishes earthy and metallic with notes of bread, pine, wood and yeast. Strange.

Sparf (185) - Östersund, SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2014
Provdatum okänt. Avslagen smak, men inte kolsyremässigt. Märkligt kantig maltbotten med metallisk ton. Mesig beska som bara kommer efteråt. Eftersmaken är tanig och med en osmaklig beska.
