itfitz (10) - California, USA - MAY 27, 2010
Calling this American Pale Ale "average" does no justice to the wonderful amalgam of caramel maltiness, light and balanced bitterness, an inviting grassy-citrus hop aroma, and a nicely-carbonated feel. Karl Strauss’ Pintail Pale Ale just works -- it goes down smoothly, leaves a pleasant aftertaste, and is the perfect accompaniment to a nice summer day.

laiti (7264) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 20, 2015
35,5 cl bottle @ Sankt Hans Tasting, Ulfborg.
Aroma has very sweet fruity tones and some sweet malt. Also resiny hops. Flavour has sweet malty tones, resiny hops, tropical fruits and caramel. Also minerals. The hops are nice but this is just too sweet - drinkability suffers.

If you haven’t yet tried it yet? Do yourself a flavour. This is a fine example of how an American Pale Ale should be. Ticks all the boxes for me. A hop forward bouquet with equal malt. Nice creamy lacey head all the way to the bottom of the glass. Tastes as good as it smells. All that resinous pine and grapefruit. Not overly Carbonated. Goes down easy without any bite. Sweet malt backbone with 45 IBU’s of bitterness that isn’t over the top. Very sessionable and leaves you wanting more. No need to drink this ultra cold. It’s an ale, not a lager. So why try and tame it’s flavours? How anyone could not give this a full score is beyond me. I love it. Will definitely be buying a case or two soon.

TedE (443) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 12, 2015
355 ml bottle into tall glass. Excellent citric hop/caramel nose. Hazy copper beer with solid small head. Medium carbonation. Quite flat light mouthfeel. Taste starts as malt then turns all pineapple on you. Unexpectedly sweet finish that lingers. It’s like Belgian chocolates at the start but Juicy Fruit at the end.
