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...

Bottled 355ml. -from Kihoskh, Copenhagen. Cloudy golden/orange coloured, medium sized off-white head, intensive grapefruity nose with hint of rosehip???Moderate malty, caramel and very fruity hoppy with hint of alcohol. Pleasant hoppy finish and aftertaste.

Courtesy of and shared with ogivlado, thanks! Nice misty golden body, white head, fluffy head. Sweet orange aroma hop nose. Orange drops in the nose. Nice interplay of hop and malt, not favoring any direction, herbal bitter aftertaste, long but slightly less intensive than expected, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Not flashy but quality stuff.

What an insanely delicious pale ale! Loads of hops both in flavor and aroma with just enough sweet malt to take back the edge just a tad. Very crisp, refreshing and oh-so-delicious!! This brew is light and definitely won’t weigh you down! Definitely one of the best APAs I have yet to savor!! Looking forward to many more!!

Very nicely made pale ale. Good citrusy hop aroma, light aroma. Good fruity hop flavors with like malts. Good hop bitterness. If I were a beer nubcake I’d be very happy with this beer all the time. Great job.

BenDover (201) - Texas, USA - SEP 17, 2011
Pours a cloudy yellow, lots of carbonation, with a small amount of off-white foam that never really dissipates -- keeps on coming. Aroma is hoppy and very fruity, smells like peaches. Taste as well is fruity and hoppy but more citrusy.
