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°

Light hazy copper golden body with firm, rocky white head that’s not going anywhere. Nice! Fresh pine aroma, not overly powerful. Crusty bread, fresh hops and a soft wheat base. Quite balanced still. Dry palate, pungent bitterness that’s only mildly contrasted by the fairly high carbonation. Ending is only bitter, and very drinkable for me. Recommended drinking temperature was 4°C on the bottle and it actually isn’t too cold to still get flavours going. Even more surprising with this light body and low abv. Bit of a surprise for me from this unknown brewer. Not super complex but very quaffable. (75cl bottle, somewhat expensive)

Vaiz (3394) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 9, 2013
Bottle @ 2nd Tuesday tasting at De Molen, hosted by dEnk. Clear golden pour, foamy white head. Aroma is somewhat yeasty, some grains, floral hops and somewhat bready. Flavor is bitter and watery with grains and some yeast. Boring but not much to complain about.

750ml bottle from Peckham’s. Hazy reddish amber brown colour, not much head. Orange & tropical fruit aroma. Biscuit & orange flavour, Very dry finish. Different take on an American Pale Ale, less hoppy than expected but not bad.

Med Amber color. A bit earthy in the nose with some citrus fruits. The mouth is clean light but not too exciting. Modest bitter finish.

Dobre, smaczne chmielne i aromatyczne, zwlaszcza amerykanskimi piecioma az odmianami. Wyglad ladny, pomaranczowo rozowawy, metnosc spora, a piana gesta i kremowa i tworzy znaczne skaldy na szkle. Finisz gozko wytrawny.

visionthing (2798) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 25, 2013
On tap at Schouskjelleren. Almost clear deep golden to amber with s small, white head. Moderate hoppy and grainy aroma with citrus, pine and something slightly unpleasant. Moderate sweet with hoppy and grainy flavours and a quite decent bitterness in the finish. Quite nice, but there is something here that I don’t like, but can’t put my finger on it. Decent enough, but not something I would buy again.

AshtonMcCobb (2684) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 15, 2012
75cl bottle. Pours cloudy amber with a lovely creamy head. The nose has grapefruit and pine. The taste has more grapefruit with a touch of malt on the end. The palate is medium bodied with a creamy texture and a bitter finish. Overall, it seems a bit too bitter at first but you get used to it.

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!
