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...

Bottle at Ølbaren, Copenhagen. Clear amber coloured with a huge white head. Fruity aroma of peaches, hops, pine needles and grape fruits. Fruity flavour of peaches, hops, pine needles and caramel.

omhper (19383) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 17, 2008
Bottled at Ørsted Ølbar, Copenhagen. Clear deep golden, small head. Lychee aroma. Chewy, bready crystal malt actually overpowers the hops. Medium bodied with god bitterness. A well made beer with more depth than first meets the eye.

Light haze on this amber tinted golden beer. Small cream coloured head. Nice mild hoppy nose. Palate starts beautifully crisp and turns softer. Mild creamy malt. Lovely fresh hops. Orange, pith, a little grapefruit and a whisper of skunk. Finishes creamy with a trace of tropical fruits coming through. Good bitter linger. A belter!

Draught at Hamnmästaren, Malmö
Hazy deep blond color with medium sized creamy head. The aroma is fruity, fresh, with some biscuits. Smooth, with good toffee flavor, good mouthfeel, very light residual sweetness, strong bitterness, nice fruity presence, apricots, drier in the end.
Very good, professionally done.
