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).

Draft. Pours golden orange with a white head. Floral and lightly citric hoppy aroma. The flavor has lightly sweet malts and floral and citric hops. Pretty good.

Idiosynkrasie (3228) - 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.

ClubGonzo (3509) - 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.

50cl bottle (best before april 1st 2012) @ home shared with Joes. Hazy dark orange color, medium to full sized, decently lasting, fair lacing white head. Smell malts, lightly fruityness, a hint of flowers, hops. Taste malts, hops, light to moderately tropical fruits, light to medium bitterness, slightly some flowers. Low to medium body, medium carbonation.

Sigmund (4809) - 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.

madquacker (1019) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - JUN 8, 2013
Toasty and malty and somwhat sweet. Red and coppery. More like an english ale and than a pale ale. But anyway.
