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).

ALLOVATE (2332) - 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)

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.

Gr0ve (2127) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 23, 2012
500 ml bottle. Light brown and clear. Medium-sized off-white head that clings to the glass. Nutty spicy aromas. Reminds me more of a brown ale than a pale ale. Rounded nutty sweet malty flavours. Quite rich. Malt driven instead of by hops. Some bitterness but it’s all well hidden. Biscuits and fresh bread. Well balanced and nicely drinkable.

Orange hazy body, white head. Aroma of peach, exotic yoghurt, same goes in flavour. Very nice bryness and bitterness.

Clear amber body, huge beige head. Malty aroma, some caramel, taste is malty too, with straw and a scent of alcohol. A Light fruity hop taste hides in the back. As the label clearly states "Big, fruity hop aroma and flavour" this is a disappointing beer as almost all hops I sense are bittering hops. It’s not a bad beer by any means, it’s just far from the beer both the name and label indicates, in my opinion at least. Accompanying the elsewhere nice bitter hops is a crisp malt finish. I guess I’d have enjoyed this beer more if the name and label didn’t prepare me for a totally different beer than what was inside.

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
