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...

Unde (486) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 14, 2015
Orange amber looks and barely any head on top. Aroma has citrus, pines and some flowery notes. Taste has pines, grass and grapefruit. Not that fresh taste to be honest. Medium body with high carbonation. A little too straightforward pale ale.

Beerenberger (1551) - Fischer, Texas, USA - FEB 13, 2015
On tap @ Hoppy Monk S.A. - Floral noted aroma rises from a clear amber pour with a medium lasting white head and abundant lacing. The taste is tangerine, grapefruit, and nice floral notes. Medium body and medium carbonation. Crisp, clean mouthfeel. Overall, a very rewarding taste experience. Would drink again.

freekyp (1557) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - FEB 7, 2015
A rugged hop forward west coast pale that showcases the citric hop profile of the region it was brewed in, but keeps a lightly malty base to play against. Somewhat heavy handed bittering hops lend a long finish that would not play well with a variety of foods. A pale for hopheads.

Turboninja (148) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 24, 2015
Medium aroma with citrus and sweet malts. Light golden color with medium, natural white head. Lightly hazy liquid. Medium, fresh taste with citrus, malts and pine. Some bitterness and hops. Balanced with medium taste spectrum and medium, malty and slightly hoppy aftertaste. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overally good performing, balanced beer.
