COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Brown color, small head. Has a hoppy aroma. A good medium body beer. Had it on tap and bottle, bottle is always better.

Thure (152) - DENMARK - FEB 28, 2009
Evaluated up against the BJCP.org #14A. Brilliant clear amber to copper colour with a tan head. Moderate spicy hop Aroma with some maltiness.Medium mouthfeel with some nice sparkling carbonation. The flavor is pleasently hoppy with some nice suttle bitterness at the end. There is a somewhat anonymous malt backbone, but it does support the hops of the beer well. There are some toasted caramel compounds in the flavor and aftertaste. Overall an over averages example of an English Pale Ale. Well brewed and balanced, but lacking a bit in the maltiness.

Bottle. Pours clear golden brown. Light head with little lacing. Nice aroma with a hint of fruits. Medium body with a sharp bitter taste that is somewhat lasting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Look: pours a gold straw color. Thick white head. Smell: hoops in the beginning. Pine flavors almost zero fruit smell. Taste: taste pint, slightly bitter on the back end. Also good amount of malt. Feel: good carbonation. Easy on the palate. Not heavy at all. Leaves no film on the mouth. Overall: not a bad summer beer. Not as citrus as I like but still a good flavor. Well balanced. First drank: 5/25/14 at CCD

M E L L O W. Pours a clear golden brown with a small head that doesn’t last very long. Little lacing. Nutty, hoppy aroma. Malty flavor, very smooth. Good ’drinking’ beer. How can people quaff the likes of Bud when there’s something like this around?

BillyM (151) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 19, 2006
Crisp sharp bitterness. God mild taste combination of roasted malt, caramel, fruit remains beneath the hops, but blends well to create a good session beer with a refreshing and clean taste. Close to an IPA.

LePoopie (151) - Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 17, 2006
Has a hazy amber color with a very thin white head. Faint hoppy aroma, but almost non-existant. Flavor is fairly pleasant, hoppy and a little spicy. Kind of a light body, but good carbonation. Overall, it’s OK, but nothing special.

Sombeast (151) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 13, 2007
Served on tap at The Gathering. Clear dark amber with a respectable white head. Aroma was pleasing but difficult to characterize in this environment. Medium-light bodied, mild bitterness, dominated by a pleasant hop flavor. Drinkable session-oriented APA, one of the best in a sketchy selection.

I must go along with Gusler on this, but it is still a fine beer. Really good with a hearty meal.

I thought that this was a good Ale. I must thank Got Stout? for this one.
