Kurtos (119) - Sydney, - MAR 24, 2013
Bottle. Pours an Amber colour, looks a little like a lager. Aroma is quite faint, canít really smell anything, though what i can smell is a bit of apricot and pine. Taste. I can mainly taste apricot, with also some grapefruit, followed by a nice toffee and sweet bread malt backing. Overall. A good beer, easy drinking, although a little bland for my liking, i would enjoy this as a session beer and it is something i would rate very highly as an entry level apa.

Piney and citrusy fruity, hoppy aroma, notes of grapefruit, lemon, orange zest, caramel malty background. Taste is bitter hoppy, sweaty, minimally fruity hoppy, caramel malty background with hints of almond; unbalanced at first sip, later more reconciliatory with an accumulation of citrusy lemon flavours and a cleaner caramel malty basis, minimally soapy nevertheless.

If you havenít 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 IBUís of bitterness that isnít over the top. Very sessionable and leaves you wanting more. No need to drink this ultra cold. Itís an ale, not a lager. So why try and tame itís 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.
