MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
My Bottom Line:
This New World Pale Ale’s peppery, citrusy hop resins establish themselves on the tongue for the long run, leaving plenty of bitterness on top of suave honeyed malts.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam laces well atop the misty honey gold.
-The hop aroma was brash compared to the bright hop flavour and finish.
-Drinkability is hindered by the high intensity of the flavour profile.
-The mouthfeel is slick and professionally rendered. This was a well tendered cask as well.

On cask at Old Fountain.

Rune (8487) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 6, 2013
From the keg menu at the Hanging Bat, one third pint. Orange-gold coloured body, near-clear. Diminishing white head, fragile lacing. Inviting citrus hoppy nose. Blended flavours of pineapple and grapefruit offset by lightly sweet pale malts. Super fresh fruit bitter aftertaste. Smooth in the mouth. Medium bodied. A pleasure to drink this one (Edinburgh 11.08.2013).

Nice mouth full of pineapples, papaya & grapefruit finishing with a bucket full of fuck off hops. This beer is a sweet & sour joy to behold. Rated by BrewTom

From a 50 ml bottle purchased in Ocracoke NC. Pours a cloudy gold with an off white head. Fruity nose. Flavors of lemon and orange with floral notes. Bitter finish. This is a fine pale ale.

poured a deep straw colour with a dense foamy head. lots of hoppy grapefruit in the nose and plenty of hop flavour in the mouth. a powerful bitter finish. overall very drinkable, especially considering the ABV - which is barely detectable. cask, old bell tavern. harrogate

Got a bitterness that’s not overpowering. Bready notes, very little head that sticks. It’s a good brew, but a little disappointing.

Ungstrup (29847) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2012
Cask at ACBF 2012. A dark golden beer with a yellowish head. The aroma has notes of hops, lemons, and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, hops, and spicy hops, leading to a dry finish where a hay note lingers.

Cask@Euston Tap, London. Goldeny orange colour with a small off-white head. Aroma is fruity, floral, nectary and mild honeylike notes along with a quite nice malty balance. Flavour is being rather similar in a refreshing way. Pleasant and quite easy to drink for being 6 %.
