COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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).

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.

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.

Grovlam (4163) - 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.

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.

0.5l bottle @ Patricks, Kristiansand. A blurry dark copper-ish beer with a big and lasting off-white head. Nice lacing on this. On the aroma this one has candy tones, fruity hops, caramel and it’s quite fresh and almost zesty as well. A bit thin - almost watery texture and the carbonation level is comfortably average to soft. Nice flavors, perhaps a tad sweet and it’s really fruity! Hints of fruity citrus plants all the way. I would describe it as very easy to drink little of, but not great to drink a whole lot of. Really low bitterness all the way, and perhaps not utterly exciting, but I found it quite tasty. Just what I needed now. 30.03.2012

Thanks Wally for bringing this one out. Expiration date was first week in April. We opened it April 22nd. Poured into a Hill Farmstead Glass

A - Half-Finger yellow and creamy head. Light orange beer with some solid haze.

S - Vanilla, oranges, mango, hops, tangerine and cinnamon. Delicious smelling beer!

T - Fallen off for sure. hops were faded and rough around the edges. Cream, spices and oranges.Still very tasty.

M - 20/80 carbonation, dry with lingering hops and pepper spices

O - Solid C...perhaps a B if fresh.
