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°

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.

kermis (9041) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 9, 2013
Bottle shared at the De Molen Tasting. Pours clear orange with an off white head. Aroma of malt, orange, citrus, caramel, honey. Flavour is over moderate sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with light carbonation.

MartinT (8957) - 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.

maeib (8749) - 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.

Rated on 01.04.2014.
Pours clear copper color with a small head. Sweet fruity aroma, hops and resin too with mild juicy notes. Caramel malt flavor, sweet orange and resinous hops. Decent, though a bit too sweet.

Draught @ Luppolo 12
Tap said ”Ligèra”, chalkboard ”American Magut”
Aroma is somewhat mild with fruity hops and grain. Flavour has grapefruit, resin and grainy malt. Unusual pils; resiny and fruity. Also caramel and pine are present. Refreshing, easy to drink yet rich. Feels actually like a session IPA.

Bottle at the De Molen July 2nd Tuesday tasting. Poured a very lively champagne like clear medium amber with a bubbly white head. The aroma is stale malt with a little citrus and caramel. The flavour is medium bitter, big malt, nutty, alcoholic and with some toffee in the finish. It sounds great, but in all honesty, I didn’t like it that much.
