3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 18B). Bottle 33 cl - Batch KL09:39. AROMA: moderate hop aroma with floral / tropical notes (passionfruit, some grapefruit). Almost neutral background with a slight sweet malty presence. APPEARANCE: gold color and clear. moderate white head, creamy, with medium to good retention. TASTE: moderate hop flavor similar to aroma, dominating the presentation, with floral / tropical notes (mild passionfruit, faint grapefruit). Almost neutral grainy malt background, with a very faint sweetness to support hops. Moderate bitterness that lasts beyond a semi-dry finish. PALATE: medium-light body with moderate carbonation. no hop astrngency. OVERALL: a very nice American Pale ale with good hop presence, good drinkability and with a more neutral malt presence.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cl, can conditioned. Golden amber, creamy one-finger off-white head medium carbonation, LOTS of sediments giving it a murky/dirty appearance. Aroma-wise the american hops hit your nose within a second after you crack the can open. It’s piny, grassy and citrusy. Mouthfeel is dry, dank, sticky Taste is hoppy and bitter, grapefruit up front. And maybe some flavours from the yeast, I’m not sure. Not the best APA around.

Pale Ale på ekte amerikansk vis. Florlett, fruktig og forførende friskt. You might get lucky, Jack!Pilsner/Crystal // Amarillo/Citra/Chinook Inspirert av iddisen Senior, Stavanger Norway.
