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°

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.

JorisPPattyn (9048) - Ursel, 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.

Bottle. Medium high white and lasting head. Clear golden body. Fruity aroma with grassy notes. Mild but fairly hopped barley malt flavor with caramel low carbonation and a long dry aftertaste.

teorn88 (5580) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2010
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.

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.
