Ungstrup (29988) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2007
Bottled. A hazy orange beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with light hoppy and straw notes, the flavor is sweet malty with light metallic notes, leading to a slightly bitter and dry end.

omhper (20325) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 26, 2002
Dark ruby with creamy head. Huge flowery citrusy hop aroma. Rather dry, nicely malty, bitterish finish, but it actually feels surprisingly mild. Extremely hop aromatic and very drinkable. Thanks PsychProf for sending me this!

fiulijn (15436) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 27, 2007
Bottle at Hop Leaf, Chicago
Light amber color. The aroma is a bit eggy, but it has a nice malt and caramel flavor, crispy, with a good hopping. Very good.

Travlr (14159) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 17, 2010
Tap at Birreria Paradiso in Georgetown. Golden color, thick amber head. Aroma of grass and subtle licorice. Taste is straightforward and lager-like. Uninteresting.

Oakes (13021) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 4, 2003
Bright reddish-amber; big cascade nose; light pale maltiness, well-balanced citrus - wood, pale and amber malts. Very nicely balanced. Dry, pithy, citrusy finish.

brokensail (11998) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 9, 2011
A: The beer pours a clear amber color with a finger of white head on top. S: Slightly sweet aroma with a little bit of toast and bread character. There isn’t too much of a hop profile to it, but there is a bit of citrus peel and grass. A light caramel aroma which gives it a slight creaminess. T: A similar story on the palate. Sweet bread, toffee, and pale, cracker malts. A light floral and grassy hop flavor along with a soft hop bitterness. Creamy caramel notes on the finish with just a touch of orange peel. M: On the light side of medium in body with a medium carbonation. O: While this is a drinkable beer, it isn’t up there with the better pale ales that I’ve had.

argo0 (11818) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 29, 2005
(12oz bottle, best by 11/24/04) Small off-white head atop a hazy amber body. Aroma is grapefruit, floral, caramel, bready, faint sourness. Taste is grapefruit, floral, bread, caramel. Finishes pretty bitter grapefruit and some bread. Medium body, quite drinkable. Very enjoyable beer with a good malt backbone to balance a still powerful hoppiness -- a bit too high an ABV for a session, but I could still see trying to make it a session beer.
