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.

Sample from 33 cl. bottle, Amagerbro Beerfestival 2015. This beer is brewed by 961 Beer in Lebanon. Slightly hazy amber-golden colour with a thin, white head. Fruity aroma with caramel malts, grass, citrus and light earthy notes. Taste is light bitter. Medium body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes dry and slightly bitter with caramel malts and citrus. Nice APA, I prefer them drier and more fruity-bitter.

ALLOVATE (2912) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 7, 2013
Produces up a deep, ruddy copper with little evident carbonation. Head is lax; a mere island of beige and a little reminder inits lace. Heavily malty, like Horlicks™, comes across prominently on the nose with underlying notes of caramelised rhubarb, manky raspberry conserve, marmalade and grapefruit, and pale nuts. Nutty, buttery and doughy on the palate and in fact this dominates making it heavy in the stomach. Rose water and oddly fusels show giving it a chemical taint. Mild bitterness starts mid-palate and lasts but the hops are ill defined; more earthy, floral and spiced. My guess would be Goldings or a clone there-of but I reckon I am wrong, and whatever else is going on falls short. Earthy, floral finish. Lasting burnt fruit note. Body is light to medium-light with moderate carbonation.and a dry, herbal and burnt fruit finish. Pretty average stuff. (50cL, no date stamp, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - OCT 29, 2011
A clear orange/amber colored beer, with a thick foamy light beige head. The aroma of sweet fruits with hop bitters. The taste is a little watery, some bitter hops with fruits like orange and citrus. The aftertaste has some bitter and sweets.

Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Deep amber, super big tanned head. Smells of malts, some hops. Where is the big fruity aroma promised on the label? Some dark overripe fruits appear though. Medium malty, medium sweet, some dry dark fruits and caramel. Nice medium bitter finish, some resins and zest in there. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, light oily feel. Totally i don’t feel that this beer deliver what it promise on the label. Even not sure if this really is an APA. Seems like people before me have questioned the same issues

On tap at Churchkey. Pours a clear amber with a decent white frothy head. Nose and flavor both hold solid spicy and herbal hops, some grass, and a touch of tangerine citrus qualities. Palate has light to medium body and decent hop bitterness. Good, but not great.
