3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured two fingers of head on a medium straw colored body.
The aroma is a wonderful mix of pine, whole cone hops and honey.
The taste starts with mild sweetness and then goes to pine bitterness. The transition is abrupt.
The texture is soft with some fizz.
An enjoyable and drinkable ale at a low ABV.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2014 355 ml bottle, from CITTI-Markt Flensburg. ABV is 4.9% according to front label, according to rear label (from German importer BraufaktuM) it is 4.6%. BB date 30.07.2013. Malts are Pilsener, Pale (Maris Otter), Münchener, Caramel. Hops are Fuggle, Cascade, Centennial, Chinook. Deep golden colour, moderate white head. Aroma of caramel, orange marmalade and American hops, also some herbal notes. Smooth mouthfeel and flavour, moderate carbonation. Not too sweet, a little caramel, herbal hops but not very bitter. Not bad at all despite BB date, but will sample again when I get a fresher bottle, might be even better fresh.

A well made pale ale. Too straightforward to make me love it but if looking for a safe pale ale without unique hoppiness this is a refreshing and solid choice.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
4th July 2014, on tap pint in The Public House Bar, Venetian, Las Vegas. Solid enough Pale Ale with plenty of citrus hop notes in both the nose and taste, crisp and refreshing. The bar is fairly dark so the exact colour eluded me, light amber maybe? Medium bodied, if a little over carbonated for my UK palate. Came very cold, flavours appeared gradually as the beer warmed a little and became more bitter as time went on.

A "California Pale Ale". Doesn’t taste that great, actually. I would be interested in trying more from this "style", if they exist.

It's a good pale. Honestly, I had it a couple hours ago at a BBQ and don't remember much about it, other than, "Hey, that's good."

12oz bottle from the "Beer Shoppe". Pours a clear golden orange color with a small foamy white head. Aroma of caramel malt, citrus, and pine. Taste mimics the nose. Decent, but nothing special here. Your run of the mill pale ale.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This was a very solid beer loads of citrus and floral notes on the nose which are balanced well by the malty backbone which shines through at the end

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Świetny aromat chmielowy, cytryna, grejpfrut, winogrona, bardzo czysty i zachęcający. W smaku wytrawne, z wyraźną goryczką w stylu amarillo (pestka grepfruta), za którą nie przepadam, ale tu była ok. Finisz za to lekko męczący trawiasty. Niemniej jednak nie przegięte, orzeźwiające, idealne na plaże itd. No i dla hopheadów...
