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.

Bottle from De Molen, courtesy of Deanso. Poured a cloudy medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is malty with a little bit of barnyard. The flavour is medium bitter with malt and rich hops. A very drinkable beer.

lusikka (7700) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 3, 2011
Tap @ Hilpeä Hauki, Helsinki.
Pours a deep amber colour with a long-lasting white head. Aroma of faint fruits and caramel. Flavour of caramel malts, fruits such as grapefruit and floral hops. Quite sweet. Medium bodied with a slick mouthfeel. Hoppy fruity finish. Not bad but lacks character.

Draft at Rattle with Linh and Chris. Pours an amber orange body. Aroma is sweet malts, floral and citrus hops. Mouthfeel is medium and refreshing with notes of citrus hops, earthy, floral tones, and sweet malts.

larsga (7313) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 31, 2012
Medium beige head. Slightly hazy amber body. Roasty malty aroma with caramelly notes. Dry-sweet caramelly dusty taste with roasty grainy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish caramelly chocolatey aftertaste with grainy dusty earthy notes. Nice, drinkable, and understated. More of a brown ale than a pale ale, if you ask me. (0.5l bottle, wine monopoly, Vika, Oslo.)

jackl (7069) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 12, 2013
Keg @ The Euston Tap. Medium amber color with a small white head. The nose is some orange peel, light grass, some confier, light toffee. The taste is pale malts, light orange and citrus fruit salad. Notes of caramel. Mild bitterness on the long finish. Smooth, easy to drink. Overall, a solid effort. Just OK. Not really my idea of a ’west coast pale’.

Cunningham (7051) - Halden, NORWAY - AUG 6, 2012
Amber colour with a tan head. Malty and fruity aroma. What on earth did they think about when they wrote: Think a bolder and more aromatic version of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. No way. SNPA rules! This had a solid malty background in the flavour with some fruity and bready notes. More malty than hoppy this one. APA? Hmmm. Soft texture.

Sigmund (6745) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 4, 2013
500 ml bottle, from Vinmonopolet Nettbutikken in May/June 2012 Beautiful dark amber to brown colour, large and creamy off-white head Nice aroma of caramel, bakery and dark fruits. The flavour has first a nice fruity acidity, followed by notes of caramel, nuts and brown bread. Not too sweet. The hops are too moderate for something waving the "West Coast" flag, but this is still a pleasant and drinkable beer.

Lovely dark amber, fluffy head. Aromatic hops lovely interwoven with nice malty body. Herbs, white petter, sutlte rather than extreme.
