COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & bottle conditioned; Regular.
Formerly known as Withens IPA. Rebranded in 2011 to avoid confusion with the more recently introduced Python IPA.
Light and bright, Withens Pale Ale uses refreshing floral Cascade hops with hints of spice, orange and citrus, giving a delicious dry bitter finish.

A very full taste, with a bitter finish. Not entirely my favourite, but still leaves you with a very rich taste over your tongue, with a hint of fruit. Would not mind drinking this again.

Aika tavanomainen kalja. Jaakon makuun liian humalainen loppu, liian mitäänsanomaton alku.

Shared by ma Dad. Pour hazy pale yellow, with a small white head. Aroma of hay, sligh skunk, light citrus. Taste has very faint sweetness up front, but is dominantly bitter. Watery bodied, with a fizzy carbonation.

Palme (3454) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 5, 2014
0.5l bottle. This is a light blurry golden looking one with lots and lots of small unfiltered particles floating around and a small kinda bubbly white little top. It has a super citrus infused almost lemony nose. Fresh and almost grassy with a really high amount of citrus. Can’t remember the last ’light’ beer I’ve had that has this amount of citrus on the nose. Like it! It has a really nice taste as well. In the mouth it’s kinda light as expected but not directly watery or thin. The bubbles are about where they should be. Zesty hops, some grassy sharpness and a gentle malty sweetness in the back. A light lemon hint in the soft and bitter aftertaste. This is quite good, sessional and definitely moreish. 26.12.2013

KoNrRiI (475) - Århus, DENMARK - APR 3, 2014
0.5 bottle. A little hazy, gold color and a medium, white head leaving decent lacing. Aroma is yeasty with a touch of pale malts - barnyard, some cheese, and grain but also floral and citric additions. Taste is medium sweet with sour notes but other than that hard to describe apart from an overarching, spicy character. Medium body, slick texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is much sourer than the rest, needs a proper hoppy, bitter offset in my opinion. Overall the beer is alright but seems watery and unbalanced.

Easy drinking pale ale, refreshing dry finish, light carbonation. Good summer drinking .

ERB92 (338) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 15, 2014
Grains, citrus, berries and some floral perfume notes in the aroma. Hazy pale golden with a white head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Light body with a average carbonation. Overall this one did not impress me very much Easy drinkable and the flavour is not to bad, but the overall impression is not very good.
