50cl bottle at home. Pours clear golden with thin, diminishing, creamy white head. Good lacing, slightly thin bodied for an APA, oily texture, bitter finish with strong aftertaste. Aromas of flowers and citrus, a bit weak though. Taste is hoppy, with hints of lemon, pineapple and citrus peel. Does remind me the character of a lager with a hoppy twist. Canít say I found similarities to any of my favorite American brewers, despite what the brewery claims. So, not the typical APA, in my humble opinion, yet decent refreshing ale.

Weak floral and citrus aroma. Crisp, moderately bitter taste, with a somewhat metallic and dryish aftertaste. Medium body, smooth on the palate. Would be really similar to a mediocre Pilsner, werenít it for the weak citrus notes. Nice mouthfeel and decent aroma, but really bland taste to be honest.

Stine (1745) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 27, 2015
Fairly clear, golden appearance. Floral honey and perfumed, musty house yeast carry the aroma, very evidently an English filter here. Lightly caramelized grains and grassy hop notes in support; the balancing of sweetness and bitterness, with each maintaining a degree of mellowness, is careful. Leafy bitterness and honey are the simple, straightforward components of the flavor, not much variance shown or needed really. Earthy yeast undertones are right in place. Clean texture, mid palate is sweeter but a strong pac-nw dry-hopped bitterness spreads out at the finish. Well-made pale ale. Nice to taste some malt sometimes.
