500ml Can on 7th March 2016: Shrewsbury Beer Exchange Group meeting. Thanks Simon (I think), for bringing this. Clear amber pour, white head that tried to hang around. Fairly sweet tasting brew with a definite corn like feel to the whole thing, grainy beer and a long way from being an APA in my limited experience of drinking them.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear copper liquid with a medium sized white foam that left big chunks on the side of the glass.
Lager-like smell, bread, malt, citrus and just a little bit of metal and hops.
Grassy hops, malt, citrus and also some fruits. Can’t quite distinguish which, but feels like a faint tangerine taste.
Medium smooth with a medium thick body. Feels ok I have nothing to complain about really.
Comment: A fairly easy to drink American pale ale that I initially mistook for a lager. The only thing that made me think otherwise before trying it was the foam that didn’t look much any lager I’ve seen. Even as I drink it I find some characteristics that I relate to regular Danish lagers. Not sure why I draw that reference, could it be the yeast? It’s also very moderately hopped, which is a bit disappointing.
This beer might work with your Easter dinner, but I have a feeling it’s better suited for that first Spring sun. Find shelter from the cool winds and I think this beer would come to it’s best.
