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

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.

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.

Finn (4201) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 16, 2012
Flaske 0,5l fra Vinmonopolet, Bestillingsutvalget. Drukket i heimen 16 Jul 12. Orange-brun. Litt uklar. Høyt kremaktig skum som varer en god stund. God fruktig aroma. Innslag av mandler. Lite kullsyre. Myk munnfølelse. Smaken sammensatt. mandler & aprikos. Svakt syrlig ettersmak. OK tørsteslukker - men også egnet som koseøl. KI=7.

Grovlam (4154) - 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.

ClubGonzo (4024) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2012
Bottle. My first Kissmeyer Beer, so expectations are pretty high! :-) Pours a deep bronze body with a coppery hue, crowned by a big bubbly white head. Aroma is fresh strawberries, overripe melon and hints of peaches, syrup and nuts. Very original and nice; like a combination of a brown and pale ale. Taste is earthy nougat-like tones, red berries and wet leaves. Hints of sweet biscuits. Hard to discern and rate really, as the flavors are blended very well. Smooth in mouthfeel, but somehow not very refreshing. This doesn’t strike me at all as an archetypical west coast APA. All in all a nice beer, but it lacks the winning edge and vanishes a bit in its own subtility. Still solid craftsmanship on display here.

dmac (4007) - 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.

UPDATED: MAY 3, 2014 Hazy in appearance with an excellent, juicy hop aroma. The flavor is very much what a great APA is supposed to be, great hoppiness mixed with a good maltiness and a juiciness that balances the dryness. Overall this was slightly more bitter than other APAs, giving this a bit of uniqueness to complement the rest, making this among the best APAs.

Idiosynkrasie (3811) - 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.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - MAY 6, 2012
Pours a hazy and copper beer with a white head. The aroma is malt, caramel and hops with citrus and peach. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is bitterness. Overall a good beer.
