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.

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.

humlelala (1091) - DENMARK - MAR 2, 2012
UPDATED: APR 23, 2015 (33 cl bottle from Kervan’s; L00138; P: 19/11/14; E: 19/11/15) Excited to see Kissmeyer’s beers produced at 961 brewing, who also brought us the much beloved Lebanese Pale Ale. This one was poured into a small Ølfabrikken snifter revealing a semi-clear amber body with medium white head. Good retention and beautiful lace. Aroma is dusty with hints of banana and grain. Oily texture, medium body, medium carbonation and a bitter finish. Flavour is moderately bitter with sprucy notes. I think the flavour has improved markedly since the one I tasted in 2012 and I would certainly like to try one of these in a fresher version to give the aroma a chance to unfold well. Original rating from February 3rd 2012 (A: 4; Ap: 4; Fl: 6; Pa: 4; O: 13): (50 cl bottle from Bunker Beer; BBD: 050113) Pours a clear, dark amber with medium, white head. Good lace and retention. Aroma is mostly malty with hints of dust and grain. Not much detectable hop aroma. Oily texture, medium carbonation, medium body with a slightly sweet finish. Taste is more sweet than bitter and definitely not dry. Easily drinkable, not very demanding, pleasant but perhaps not that terribly interesting.
