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

50cl bottle from Vinmonopolet. Pours amber with a small off-white head. Fruity and malty aroma with caramel and hops. Sweet and malty with some bitterness. Medium body. Pleasant beer, but the name gave me higher expectations... Slightly citric and dry finish.

UPDATED: FEB 28, 2012 Orange golden. Hoppy aroma with distinct grassy notes. Green flavor, malty backbone, very well balanced: Not sweet. Dry, flowery aftertaste.

Habanero (3079) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - MAY 12, 2012
Bottled. Pours a deep amber with a medium sized off-white head leaving a fair lace. Nose of floral hops, citrus fruits, peacy notes and caramel. Sweet flavor with grapefruit, peach and caramel. Medium bodied, watery to oily texture and soft carbonation. Ends up more dry and nice bitter. An OK APA maybe a little weak on the palate.

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.

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.

ALLOVATE (2547) - 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)

brnandersen (2377) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 22, 2015
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.

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

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.

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
