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...

On tap. Michigan. This is just a great pale ale. Amber. Small head. The slightly cloudy appearance of a wheat. Wonderful floral hopping. Citrus edges. Grapefruit hints, but not overpowering. An all night long pale ale.

Bawelt (542) - Lyon, FRANCE - SEP 22, 2016
Nez bien équilibré bien que léger. Très porté sur les agrumes. Petit fond vert très agréable, très frais. Bouche très légère, un peu trop. Après l’équilibre est niquel entre un léger maltage, les agrumes, un petit fond vert/résineux.

Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from One Stop Market. Appearance is clear, gold with nice sparkle, finger-width foamy white head with good retention and sticky sudsy lacing. Aroma is citrus, floral, light pine, over malt base. Taste is as aroma. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with foamy texture, average carbonation and mix of bitter and sweet finish. Overall, solid all around.

Foffern (1678) - Bodø, NORWAY - AUG 28, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours a golden colour with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit, fruity hops, grass, pine and more tropical fruits. Similar flavour with more grapefruit, grassy hops and pine. Has a slick mouth feel, medium body and a medium to heavy bitterness. A hoppy and well balanced APA.

Yeah this one works for me. It smells great, feels refreshing. Slight minor sweet vague malt existence so if you have a complete aversion to that flavor in beer this might quietly nag at you. I keep my distance from malt these days and this amount is not too bad. Didn’t realize this brewery was owned by Heineken. can’t escape the long rude consuming reach of capitalism. soon there will be just one brewery: Budweiser.
