3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a cloudy copper with tan head. Big malty nose: sticky caramel and toast. American hops present a short resin hop aroma with a slight grapefruit back. Flavour is pretty big for a pale ale, malt really present on the tongue and hops take a backseat until the lingering bitterness. Quite well bodied for a standard pale ale, interesting take on an APA.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Now known as the Kooinda American Pale ale. Bottle at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Pours a clear medium copper colour with a frothy white head. The aroma is malty with a little hoppiness in the background. The flavour is medium to strong bitter, a little malty and with lots of bitterness on the palate and in the aftertaste. A nice beer which is a little sadly all about the bitterness and not much else. We need more flavour.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Quite a sweet aroma. A little citrus and honey. Flavour follows through. An oily palette and a bittetness that starts light but builds in the aftertaste. Not bad.

Bottle. Real standard pale ale. Had this one on Tap. Bready citrus aromas. Pretty Simple APA. Taste isn't that great. Doesn't promise the aroma. Ok pale not awesome.

Aroma is fruity from hops, appearance an opaque red-gold with good head. Taste is hoppy, balanced with malts, touch fruity and piney and a bit of citrus. Palate is mild, pleasant bitterness.

Pours a coppery colour with wispy disappearing head. The aroma is citrus hop resin and caramel. The flavour is a wonderful balance of hop bitterness and wort sweetness.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2012 On tap at Archive Beer Boutique, Brisbane. A translucent honey gold colour with a thin white head that faded quickly. Laced quite well. Moderate carbonation. Aroma of moderate intensity of malts and yeast. Taste initially of hops bitterness. Medium body. Long slightly bitter finish. Quite nice. From bottle there are some differences - colour is same but poured with a two finger off-white foamy and frothy head that lasted and laced well. If sediment in bottle is poured then the beer turns an opague cloudy honey gold colour. Carbonation was high with a fast and steady stream of bubble trails. Taste, palate and finish similar.

This beer starts with a lovely aroma, full of bread and caramel with an undercurrent of pine and lemon. Unfortunately the taste is disappointing as the malt seems to disappear and you’re left with that heavy dose of hops, leaving a very dry and disappointing finish.
I really like Kooinda, but this one’s disappointing.

33cl bottle at Taps Beer Bar, KL. Pours slightly hazy golden with an off-white head. Fruity aroma with citrus, tropical fruits, malt, caramel, pine and hints of spices. Quite hoppy and well balanced. Nice bitter finish. Refreshing and nice APA! (2012-05-04)
