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°

pivnizub (8919) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAR 2, 2013
Bottiglia: Hazy, golden to deep golden, big rocky and stable off-white head, herbal grapefruity hoppy aromas with a delicate malty (almost chocolatey) background; moderate - not too dry - bitter-sweet flavour, too light bodied; grapefruity-malty finish with a slight tartness. Nice brew, but too thin…

maeib (8750) - 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.

Benzai (8530) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 6, 2012
75cl bottle @ ZZT V. Hazy orange color, full sized frothy white head that leaves a fair lacing and lasts for quite a while. Smell malts, sweetish, slightly spices, slightly yeasty. Taste malts, slightly yeasty, some hops, lightly bitter, slightly fruity. Nice one. Nice bitter aftertaste. Medium carbonation, low to medium body.

Rune (8173) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 1, 2009
Sampled on tap at the Italian exhibition stand, Danish/Copenhagen Beer Festival 09. Amber body, partly hazy. Thin layer on he surface. Smooth malt-fruity aroma. Hoppy citrus in flavour mixed with malty sweetness. Dry hopped ending. Ok pale ale (15.05.2009).

JorisPPattyn (7970) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 9, 2008
Draught Small head, very fast gone over (cold) hazy pale-orange beer. Nutty nose, slighly oxydized malts, followed after some time by UK-like hops; further caramel. Very nice lightly bitter in the British way, but with a strange retronasal flavour, very outspokenly reminiscent of peanut butter. Not really light body; good carbonation. Strange, but certainly not bad - makes a good ’quaffing’ ale.

MartinT (7952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 11, 2008
My Bottom Line:
Earthy hop resins surround the mild malt sweetness in this smooth and moderately bitter American-style Pale Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A pillowy head of foam slowly sinks into the hazy blond orange.
-Some caramel undertones are felt.
-The handpump serving imparts a very smooth mouthfeel.
-I am used to enjoying more hop aromatics from the style, so the politely citrusy nose was a little too subdued for my tastes.
-The resinous hop bitterness is lengthy but never overbearing.

On cask at the brewpub.

Bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch malzig hopfig, fruchtig herb. Geschmack hopfig bitter, exotische Früchte, fruchtig malzig.
