nick76 (4379) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 23, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2009 The aroma is very hoppy and sweet with plenty of malt, sour dough bread, and nuts to balance. The choice of hops give it a smell reminiscent of spruce pines. The appearance is not bad either. It has a copper color and pours a nice head with some lacing. The taste of this ale is bitter at first, but then quickly gives way to toasted and caramel malts. The finish is buttery and somewhat nutty. Well done.

kaserov (174) - Oviedo, SPAIN - SEP 27, 2016
Color dorado anaranjado, translúcido, con capa de espuma blanca de un dedo de grosor (buena retención). Poca carbonatación. Aroma maltoso muy agradable con un toque frutal específico que no soy capaz de identificar (a mí me huele a naranja, pero podría ser mandarina o podrían ser mil cosas). El sabor es también maltoso, vuelve a notarse ese toque específico, al igual que en el aroma, y apenas tiene amargor. Muy fácil de beber y muy sabrosa.

Franckg (1179) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 13, 2016
Bouteille avec un BB du 27/10/2016. Robe presque ambrée légèrement trouble sans col de mousse. Arômes de malt caramélisé avec une touche houblonnée, tangerine, litchi, sucre résiduel en peut-être trop grande quantité. En bouche, malt caramelisé, houblons herbacés, agrumes, zeste d’orange, cassonade. Texture un peu aqueuse et corps moyen. on dirait une double ipa à faible teneur en alcool et un corps moins riche. Spéciale.

Huhzubendah (3477) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 7, 2016
Golden / copper body with an off-whit cap. Steady effervescence emanating from the bottom. Aromas of malt, cracker, cracked pepper. Pine, hops, alcohol, atop a sturdy malt body. Light to medium bodied. This isn’t my jam, in terms of pale ales.

gripweed57 (1365) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - AUG 5, 2016
12 ounce bottle. Pours a copper color with a thick beige mousse-like head. Fragrant, fruity malt nose. Flavor is sweet toasted malt with a spicy hop backdrop. Notes of caramel and citrus offer a nicely balanced American Pale Ale. Full of flavor and easy to drink.

heavy (2773) - Split, CROATIA - JUL 16, 2016
May. ’16. A 0.355 l bottle. It poured a clear amber to copper body with medium sized head. Very fine elderflower, citrus and pineapple fruity aroma. Lightly sweet flavor, also flowery and fruity like the nose. Bitterness came in with a small delay, driven by citrus and herbal hops. Medium bodied with long finish that showed even more bitterness and some spices. More specific, pepper, citrus and herbal hops. Really nice.
