lethe (177) - New York, USA - APR 20, 2012
Pours a very hazy pale yellow. Looks like a Pilsner or a Landbier, but the nose dispels that with way more notes of hoppy grassiness in standards of those styles. Fair amount of body to the palate and low carbonation. Flavor is very nice and is most reminiscent of a U.S. harvest ale: grassy, herbal notes and healthy dose of bitterness. Some citrus flavors as well, but mainly bitterness and grass. This is really nice and a great single hop from a German brewer. If this was a little stronger and a little hoppier it would make a great IPA. One of the best hoppy German pale ales I’ve had.

ALIBALI (286) - Kiel, Schleswig-Holstein, GERMANY - APR 29, 2016
Lecker. Citrus. Tropical. Erfrischend. Toller leicht malziger Körper. Dezente Herbe und eine angenehme nicht zu aufdringliche Süße runden den positiven Gesamteindruck ab. 0,3l vom Hahn im GUTENBERG Kiel. 3,30 Euro.

Renobob (1545) - Besançon, FRANCE - APR 7, 2016
Bue en bouteille. Blonde, nez agrume. Palais décevant comme sa cousine. On sent le grain, l’alcool est trop présent, mauvais équilibre. Apreté finale désagréable.

freretoc (1506) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAR 4, 2016
Bue en bouteille de 33cl à la brasserie. Couleur ambrée, peu de mousse et peu d’effervescence. Nez sur le grain et l’alcool En bouche, attaque sur le grain avec une énorme amertume et une pointe houblonnée à l’anglaise, j’ai pas senti le Citra !

LLaurin (221) - Motala, SWEDEN - FEB 7, 2016
Slightly hazy but still a nice pour with a small but nice head. Taste is citric and very refreshing with some malty notes. Palate gives a rich citric onward experience. For such a low ABV beer it is surprisingly rich in taste and palate.

kustie (704) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 27, 2016
Bottle. Hazy golden color with quite small white head. Aroma has citrus, apples, raspberry and tropical fruits. Taste is very fruity with quite long somewhat bitter aftertaste. Flavors of citrus, mandarin, berries and some grass. Very fruity and refreshing one.

martin00sr (2390) - Haderslev, DENMARK - JAN 25, 2016
Bottle, 1 week past BBD. Hazy orange, snow white froth. Light mango and peach aroma. Lemon and peach flavour, bittersweet and almost a little sugary. Lasting bitter and citric finish. Ok but actually a little watery.

massingasetta (598) - München, GERMANY - JAN 17, 2016
My oh my can this category be improved by such a sleek bottle. It can. One taste of this amazing beer shows you how well you can use the Citra Hops. Not too much citrus not too much hops (can there be too much some would say). A wonderful surprise.

Foerdifuxx (165) - Franconia, GERMANY - JAN 12, 2016
Hazy orange coloured beer with a medium, white, medium-lasting head. Aromas of thyme, mango, maracuja, lime and cheesy yeast. Sweet citrus and tropical fruits in taste together with malt, wheat, caramel and yeast. Medium body, avarage carbonation, creamy texture.
