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...

MaltOne (297) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 14, 2013
Pours yellow gold, brief but ample white head. Nose is citrus and pine, with a hint of earthiness. Taste is noteable for its immediate presence, not overpowering, not harsh, but from the instant it hits the tongue, the fun begins. As it plays on the tongue it goes through a variety of tastes. It has a touch farmhouse ale, both in the aroma and the taste. Nice balance, good mouthfeel for a pale ale, medium body, long finish. It evolves over time in the glass. Overall, it’s hard for me to pin down why, but it is a substantial beer, with a subtle but complex character.

craftbeersweden (507) - SWEDEN - APR 30, 2016
Clear, golden beer with a huge, four finger high, offwhite, fluffy head that leaves a lot of lacing on the glass.

Nose: Lemon, orange, pine, grass, floral hops and caramel malt.
Taste: Pine, resin, grass, lime, grapefruit, citrus and some herbal spice.
Mouth: Medium body, crisp carbonation. Bitter ending.

Biroholik (613) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - APR 18, 2016
Kolor jasnego złota, całkowicie klarowny. Niezła piana tworząca liczne pierścienie. Umiarkowanie mocny aromat owoców cytrusowych. Bez szczególnych fajerwerków - grejpfrut, pomelo. W oddali delikatna nuta mięty i ziół. W smaku wyraźna ziołowość i owoce cytrusowe. Grejpfrut przeplata się z mandarynką. Goryczka ziołowa z dość trawiastym finiszem. Dość wysokie wysycenie. Początkowo wydawało się dość wodniste, potem pokazało odrobinę więcej ciała. Niezłe orzeźwiające piwo na ciepłe dni, niestety niczym szczególnym nie zaskoczyło mnie. Kolejny kapselek do kolekcji ;)

GenkiGonzo (926) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 5, 2016
Bottle from O’Donovans. Clear gold with a quickly disappearing head. Huge aroma of grapefruit and passion fruit. Same with the flavour along with some pine in a long bitter finish. Almost an IPA.

haggis03a3 (194) - Orinda, California, USA - MAR 2, 2016
Clear gold with big fluffy foam. Hoppy citrus/pine aroma. Very bitter, hoppy, some malt flavor. Kind of in balanced and more IPA-like than a pale ale.

Gerbeer (2810) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 24, 2016
On tap. Pours a clear gold with moderate head. Aromas of tropical fruit, pine, citrus, and sweet malts. Flavors of tropical fruit leaning towards melons, pineapple, rubber/resin, and dry toasty malts. Very nice.
