An American inspired pale ale using European malts and American hops. The light addition of crystal and chocolate malt contribute to the orange hue of the beer along with some caramel notes. Cascade hops are added late in the boil along with Simcoe hops in the whirlpool to give this beer it’s unique apple, tangerine and citrus profile. The yeast from America also contribute some light strawberry notes to this tasty beer from Fuglsang. A celebration of Spring in Denmark!

The first time I had this one it was a few months old, i.e. not entirely fresh. This time, however, it’s a real oldie, it’s passed its best before date by a few days. It pours a crystal clear medium amber body with a rather large, creamy, long-lived head that laces the glass very well. Rather strong aroma that is very malty, but there is still a reasonable amount of hops left: caramel, pale malts and tropical fruits. Fairly strong flavour of caramel, pale malts, tropical fruits and grapefruit, and pine needles in the back. It’s surprisingly tasty for its age, but it was a tad more hoppy and citric half a year ago. Light sweet taste with a pleasant medium bitter finish. It’s quite light-bodied, has a dry texture and is moderately carbonated. A nice one, I’d like to taste a fresh one some day.

50 cl can@home in lager glass@approx 6 degrees C. Pours amber orange with large white head and sufficient retention. Fruity aroma signalling American hops. Taste a good mix of caramel malt, fruitiness from the hops used and bitterness, especially in the long aftertaste. Well balanced beer. Tasty without becoming extreme, I will certainly buy this again when available. And it is not very expensive either :-)

DraftDodger (630) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2015
Copenhagen 7/8/14. Pours slightly dark yellow with white head hanging as curtains on the side of the glass as it evaporates. Strong fruity slightly perfumed aroma. Fruity taste with long distinct bitter aftertaste. Clearly my favourite from Fuglsang.
