COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is not the original Pale Ale as brewed in far away 1993 in the back of the Old House of Richards Building in West Marin hamlet of Forest Knolls right next to little Lagunitas. It is way better. Back then the beer tasted like broccoli and kerosene and the carbonation ate right through and drained your stomach into your gut...

From bottle to pint glass. Aromas of wet grass and citrus. Moderate low caramel malt. Clear brushes gold with full, creamy white head that lingers. Taste is fresh citrus juice and moderate low pine. Moderately bittering makes this an easy one to quaff.

Flaska systembolaget. Gyllengul kulör med vitt skum. Fuktig doft av hö, barr, lite citrus och frostbitna äpplen. Sötmaltig smak med tallbarr och lite citrus. Rejäl och aningen sträv beska.

Golden colour with a small offwhite head. I like the crispy feel when it hits the tounge. tastes of light hop and pine. Citrus notes at the end. Overall a good beer.

I enjoy a pale that drinks like an IPA. Little on the heavy side for the style, and I appreaciate it. Copper toned, hoppy, and no reservations pale ale. Good job. Multi 12oz beers

mambossa (45) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - FEB 24, 2015
Bright golden pour, gently speckled with yeast. Smell is skunky hop and earth. Nice pale, musky-citrus taste but with a solid malt body to back it up. Sweet hoppy linger. Good drink.

HourGlass13 (178) - North Carolina, USA - FEB 24, 2015
Pours a clean clear amber with moderate white head. Aroma is fresh citrus hops, and citrus fruit. The taste is oranges, mango, tangerines, apricot, light pine, wood, and some light spicy hops. Slightly bitter. Refreshing afternoon beer.

@Roland’s post Mondial tasting; beautifully merging bergamotte, grapefruit, lemon, honey melon aromas, good mouthfeel, unobtrusive malt base, typical grapefruit bitterness. Nice one.
