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...

humlelala (1080) - DENMARK - DEC 21, 2011
(35 cl bottle from Petit Paté; BBD: No idea but print on bottleneck says "23709813") Pours a clear, golden with little off-white head that dissipitates quickly. Aroma is a subdued hoppy with earthy notes. Full-bodied, lively carbonation, oily texture and a short, bitter finish. Taste is mildly bitter with sweet notes. Okay but doesn’t feel that fresh.
