HoppyAlesToYou (167) - Saint John, Indiana, USA - JUL 12, 2012
Light caramel and citrus, but mostly passion fruit in the aroma. Golden in color, it retained a thin head until the last drop. The taste is lightly sweet with a light bitter finish, and the palate is very creamy for a pale ale. Overall, this is a fantastic pale ale. Trying this beer reminded me of trying Zombie Dust the first time, when it was still named Cenotaph. The aroma really differentiates this ale from other pales, similarly to Zombie Dust. While Zombie Dust is extremely hopped for a pale, the palate is thin and the bitter finish can become a bit overwhelming if enjoying more than a couple of pints. Walkabout is balanced much better, and more easily enjoyed with its soft mouth feel. If Three Floyds brewed this, it would be an instant smash. However, if Flat 12 keeps brewing ales likes this, the rest of the country may have another Indiana brewery to envy.

355ml bottle. Amber pour. Stale nose of caramel and balsamic. Soem nougat. Falvor is citrus and caramel malt, maybe its not old by the taaste just a caramel forward and shitty apa.

Leider zu bitter im Vergleich zum Hopfengeschmack. Sehr schönes, fruchtiges Aroma nach Zitrusfrüchten. Geschmack unrund, astringend. Zunächst extrem bitter, danach wird es süßer. Karamell und Honig ergänzen den Hopfen. Gut, aber durch die übermäßige Bittere leider nicht sehr gut.

Light, citrus aroma accompanying a hazy yellow pour. A little sour for my taste. Lemon, citrus, wheat.

Thechasm442 (661) - Manhattan, Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2016
Bottle pour. Hazy apricot with an average white head and nice lacing. Aroma is tropical, with citrus and pine notes. Taste is citrus up front with pine and bread flavors. It finishes with more tropical fruit. Papaya and pine resin finish it out. Average thickness and a bit dry. Good beer.

Nice malty aroma. Big pillow head sits a top a rusty copper. Taste is peppery and bitter fruit. Medium bodied beer. Overall a good pale, definitely would get again.

Unique pale ale. Hints of grapefruit. Pleasant finish: bitter with some malt; refreshing with substance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
