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...

Flaska från SB. Ganska klar bärnstensfärgat skum. Fint krämigt vitt skum! Doftar fint av humlen, men någonting surt sticker igenom. Samma sak med smaken, fin första touch men något surt förstör festen tyvärr.

The history behind it is so cool, adds some to the taste. Guys that have that good taste in music must now what they are doing.

Bottle, many thanks to StefanSD. Láhev 355 ml. Aroma je velmi výrazně znát po karamelu s podtóny sladu a cereálií. Pěna je jasně bílá, jemná, středně vysoká a držící. Barva samotného piva je zlatá. Chuť je opravdu úžasná, má velmi příjemný karamelový střed s opravdu lahodným a výrazným pomerančovým nádechem, v pozadí je jemně znát zrající sýr. Finiš je příjemně kávově hořký,též lehce připomíná hořkou čokoládu a je držící. V ústech je pivo velmi příjemné, lehké, ale přesto mohutné chuti a velmi pestré, má střední říz. Celkově se jedná o velmi lahodný pale ale a musím uznat, že přesně nějak takhle, si představuji pivo co by se tímto stylem mohlo nazývat, pivo pestré chuti, lahodného aroma a vysoké pitelnosti.

Bottle. Smells wonderful but hard to place. Floral? Little fruity? Pours paddle yellow, thin head, fades to the edge with some lace in the middle. Taste follows the aroma with just a hint of bitterness. It’s a little more bitter than I’d like overall, but it’s a good pale ale.

SilentJo (65) - Chocowinity, North Carolina, USA - MAR 12, 2014
Aroma is strong upon opening, seems to mellow after the pour. Fruity aromas mostly, and the sip is smooth at first. The hop bitterness comes sneaking in at the end and lingers. Each sip furthers this taste. Not bad.

Golden to amber color, white head. Tropical fruit nose, passion fruit, peach, hints of butterscotch and tobacco. Light sweet taste with a crisp grapefruit finish.
