COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A nicely hopped pale ale brewed with 4 American hops, dry hopped with Cascade and Willamette.
Ale in American Pale Ale style. Orange-coppery in colour. On the nose, it features a delicate note of chestnut honey surmounted by the citrus taste of mandarin and bitter orange deriving from the American hoppers used in this beer. Just a slight herb note in the end. In the mouth, clear citrus notes accompany the moderate body and the final dryness tempts another sip. 12.5°

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2010 pinta spillata direttamente al birrificio. ottima birra, estremamente beverina ma non per questo poco gustosa. Aroma e sapore sono piacevolmente complessi per lo stile birraio in questione. Nell’insieme direi una buona birra.

thebeertourist (4822) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 3, 2010
Bottle from De Bierkoning. Hazy amber with a creamy head. Potent hoppy nose, promising plenty of citrus. Quite bitter in the mouth as well with more of the same. Good for a low strength beer.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 30, 2009
Bottle at GBBF 2009, 4th Aug 09. Very cloudy amber with a bit of whitish head. Quite fresh taste but an undercurrent of funkiness. I think we got a bad one with this bottle. Looks like I was sharing with maeib at this point in the afternoon!

Bottle@Home. Lovely fruity, floral and light grassy aroma. Hazy, dark yellow colour, off-white head, good lace. Sweetish start, sourish middle, very bitter grassy finish. Enough body, dry mouth feel. flavourful, well present hops, highly drinkable.

maeib (8726) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2009
Bottled GBBF 09. A hazy light amber coloured beer with a whitish head. The aroma has as hint of spice but not much else. The taste has some bitterness but again a lot of nothingness. Pretty poor and dull.

Bottle at GBBF ’09. Many thanks to harrisoni for a chance to enjoy this fascinating beer. Gold. Odd hoppy aroma of grapefruit and ginger which seems typical of Italian craft brewing. And that goes for the taste: an unusual, complex, indeterminate melange that is more interesting than appealing.
