Editor’s note: Previously called ’Kissmeyer West Coast Pale Ale’

English: Dry, crisp, medium malty body, medium smooth bitternes, big, fruity hop aroma and flavour. Think a bolder and more aromatic version of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.

(13.3 % P, 6.0 % ABV, 35 IBU, Colour 20 – 25 EBC).

500 ml bottle @ Patricks. Dark golden body with an off-white head. Quite weak malty aroma with just a hint of citric fruit. Flavor is malt with notes of citric fruit and moderate bitterness. Medium body. A good looking OK beer, but pretty straight forward with nothing extra at all.

UPDATED: APR 23, 2015 (33 cl bottle from Kervan’s; L00138; P: 19/11/14; E: 19/11/15) Excited to see Kissmeyer’s beers produced at 961 brewing, who also brought us the much beloved Lebanese Pale Ale. This one was poured into a small Ølfabrikken snifter revealing a semi-clear amber body with medium white head. Good retention and beautiful lace. Aroma is dusty with hints of banana and grain. Oily texture, medium body, medium carbonation and a bitter finish. Flavour is moderately bitter with sprucy notes. I think the flavour has improved markedly since the one I tasted in 2012 and I would certainly like to try one of these in a fresher version to give the aroma a chance to unfold well. Original rating from February 3rd 2012 (A: 4; Ap: 4; Fl: 6; Pa: 4; O: 13): (50 cl bottle from Bunker Beer; BBD: 050113) Pours a clear, dark amber with medium, white head. Good lace and retention. Aroma is mostly malty with hints of dust and grain. Not much detectable hop aroma. Oily texture, medium carbonation, medium body with a slightly sweet finish. Taste is more sweet than bitter and definitely not dry. Easily drinkable, not very demanding, pleasant but perhaps not that terribly interesting.

Maria (10190) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 16, 2012
It’s hazy bronze with a huge, creamy head. The aroma is nicely hopped with notes of citrus, fruit, malt and light spruce. The flavour is moderately sweet with notes of citrus, caramel, exotic fruits, and the finish is dry and slightly bitter.

Idiosynkrasie (5156) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 15, 2012
500ml bottle. Cloudy dark golden to amber colour with medium frothy lacing white head. Distinct but moderate hop aroma. Taste is more "powerful", dry and bitter hop, herbal, metallic. Definitely not easy to drink. The hop notes are not on the flattering range of the tongue’s spectrum, but rather strenuous. Nevertheless worth the fray.

dmac (4849) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 11, 2012
Bottle shared at jcwattsruggers. Poured a light gold/amber body with a foamy white average sized head. Aroma of honey, toast and green grapes. Body is nice with a medium mouthfeel, fuzzier carbonation and a quick fading aftertaste. Flavor is a solid step backwards, dry cardboard, grains and straw. Meh.

jtclockwork (11246) - , New Jersey, USA - DEC 22, 2011
Bottle. Pours yellowish light brown with a white head. Nose/taste of grapefruit, barley, guava and bready malt. Nose has more of a grapefruit and guava feel than the taste which is more bready. Medium body.

Grovlam (4170) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 20, 2011
Bottle. Large bubbly beige like head that mostly lasted. Fair display of lacework. Cloudy golden/amber color. Aroma of preach, passion fruit, pineapple, light toffee. Quite hoppy fruity aroma and mouthful. The aroma is right up there with Sierra Nevada in my opinion, but the body is a bit too thin. Light to medium bodied with an average carbonation and light oily dry texture. Light to moderated bitter and sweet flavor. Gets a little bit of that liquorish like finis from the hops.
