Lovely beer. Very drinkable, perfect for upcomming sunny days and higher temperature. Aroma is nice, aftertaste lasts just long enough.

Archiwum

Kolor : Przepiękna pomarańczowa barwa. Delikatnie mgliste.
Piana: Średniotrwała i niezbyt wysoka. Po chwili redukuje się do wąskiej obrączki. Pozostaja do końca. Zdobi szkło malując doskonałe wzorki.
Aromat: Nie jest jakiś powalający . Można jednak śmiało powiedzieć że jest owocowo-ziołowy.
Smak: Perfekcyjny! Wszystko czego można chcieć od dobrego APA. Jest bardzo owocowo : cytrusy i owoce egzotyczne. Na początek dominują pomarańczę i mandarynki, następnie przechodzimy przez nieco słodsze owoce - mango, papaja. Gdzieś pośrodku pijawia się ziołowy i pikantny posmak. Mocna goryczka chmielowo-ziołowa ze herbacianym finiszem.
Wysycenie: Nagazowanie dość mocne.
Podsumowanie:
Mega APA ! Wszystko dobrze skomponowane. Mocno chmielowe z odpowiednim słodowym wsparciem. Średnio treściwe piwo z gładką, niezalegającą goryczką. Wszystko jak należy.

16-12-2015 Delft Wellicht wat van zijn smaak verloren omdat hij te lang heeft gestaan maar het smaakt gewoon echt niet. Enorm slappe, waterige smaak. Weinig aroma.

Beautifully frothy ale that is a shade darker in color than expected. Smell of fruit, malt and hops in part. Clear notes of lemon and grapefruit and which leaves most of acidity in the mouth. Only a little sweetness from the malt can vaguely hinted at in the background. Hop bitterness is long and quite comfortable. The brewery calls it a classic pale ale and the high acidity makes it also atypical. I would not dismiss it as boring or downright bad, but just today it is not optimal for my taste.

Interesting: retired pale ale!? Pours dark amber, haze colour with creamy yellow - white head. visual medium carbonation. Aroma without notice of an alcohol. Prevails notes of Herbal / green tea, some spices and grass. Taste is similar, without notes of an alcohol, with grassy / friuity (grapefruit, citrus) notes, but at the same time you can also detect notes of an herbal tea. Malt sweetness is medium, hop bitterness also, carbonation is soft, finish is dry and long lasting bitter. Proper pale ale.

Pale ale with a slight hoppy finish. Overall the beer is a pretty good pale ale

Bottle. Big grapefruit notes with lemon and sweet malt. Pine and spiced orange show up too. Amber with a 1 finger tight head. A refreshing pale ale with a lot of flavor. Medium carb, body, and texture. I didn’t get any specific lemongrass or basil, but this definitely is a bigger, more full bodied pale ale than most.

On cask at Meridian Pint. Pours a hazy, burnt orange with some cloudy, white head. Nose is piney, pithy, orange, grapefruit. Smells like regular Doggy Style. Flavor is malty, orange, grapefruit, a little medicinal, some herb, lavendar, maybe a touch of cardamom. Medium bodied, astringent finish.

Gravity cask at Meridian Pint. Hazy amber color, large bubble head. Aroma is subtle citrus. Taste is fresh hay and lemon peel. Decent.

Poured a slightly hazy copper color with a wispy head. Aroma was light malts, light hops. Flavor was light malts, hops, not a lot of lemongrass, some basil on the finish.
