The hop profiles of Hallertauer Mittelfrüh, U.S. Tettnager, Brewers Gold and" East Kent Golding has fruity notes of citrus fruits such as limes and grapefruit. But even gooseberry, lychee, passion fruit and passion fruit are found again and fit well with the best of our six selected malts Bamberg Pilsner malt.

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.

Zlotta (29) - Bonn, GERMANY - AUG 31, 2014
Hazy yellow ale with white lasting head. Intensive aroma of citrus and lime. A bit too sweet in my eyes. Medium body. Average carbonation. A slightly bitter finish which makes it a beer at last. Easy drinkable on warm summer days.

goochflies (50) - Kaiserstuhl, SWITZERLAND - AUG 21, 2014
Fizzy big bubbled head. Surprisingly slight basement mango aroma. Fizzy lagery mouth feel. Light and not impressive at all for the style...

(Bottle). Pleasant and slightly acidic aroma of grassy hops, citrus and pine. Taste of citrus, yeast, tropical fruit and hops, but somewhat harsh and unbalanced. Fizzy carbonation.

graziano85 (311) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 8, 2014
Hazy orange/yellow colour with a huge head, incredible, too much (with 10cl the Duvel glass was totally full!). Smell is citrus, yeast, some ripe fruits (peach, mango) but also some soapy notes. Taste is very fruity, basically only fruity, sweet, any bitterness, not really...sincerely, it’s not bad, it’s also nice in a hot summer day, but it seems too much a fruit juice with gas. Sure not between the best APA I had.

Chopper925 (147) - Gross Gerau, GERMANY - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle. Hazy, amber yellow color, big foamy head. Fruity aromas, citrus, ginger, banana, great. Taste is light sweet, light bitter. Great fruity aftertaste, with a malt note which stays a bit longer. Fizzy carbonation and a thick mouth feel are making this beer round.
