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.

guzgorog (582) - FRANCE - JAN 14, 2016
Blonde cuivrée, très fine mousse blanche. Nez agrume, citron, citron vert, agréable mais léger. Bouche agrumes (citron, pamplemousse). Amertume moyenne, corps léger. Une APA typique, sympa, mais sans aucune originalité !

harrisoni (16047) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2016
Bottle from Terre de Boissons Calais and drunk at home. Clear amber colour lasting beige head. Quite a tasty APA, fresh enough. Some danky grapefruit, some bitterness. I rather liked it. Good APA.

tricksta_p (2672) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2016
Bottle at home. Aroma is piney, pale malt, biscuits, caramel, citrus, grapefruit, leafs, hops. Flavour is light sweet and just about medium bitter. Body is medium. Rather mild malty piney APA, but enjoyable.

ciocanelu (591) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - DEC 6, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Clear golden color with white head. Aroma is somehow faint, some malts and earthy hops. Taste is also pretty simple. Slightly hoppy, slightly malty, not too bitter. Medium body with quite low carbonation. Easy drinking but nothing more.

Plovmand (7290) - Helsinge, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2015
Bottle. It pours mostly clear golden with a creamy white head. The aroma is quite malty with a fruity and light piney hop character. Caramel malty backbone in the flavor with lighter piney and grassy hops. Citrus and bread notes. Easy drinkable.
