The beer we produced is a 5% US/German style Pale Ale, using a UK Pale Malt/German speciality malt bill, Centennial whole hops in the hop back and then dry hopped with Hallertau Mittelfruh and Centennial in conditioning. We kegged it this week and we think its tasting great, really fresh and easy to drink with a light body and herbal/citrus almost ginger beer hop flavour, which should make for perfect summer drinking.

abemorsten (3565) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - MAY 31, 2013
Sampled from tap at Haandøl 2013. ABV is 5,0%. Clear golden body with an inch thick creamy beige head that leaves excellent lacing. Inviting nose of fresh cut peach and resiny pollen. Light to medium body, sharpish mouth and a watery texture. Malty flavor with papery hops. Less rewarding to drink than the nose suggests.

jackl (7063) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Keg @ CBC Islington during the Un-Human Cannonball launch. The pour’s amber with a small head. The nose is chalk, lemon zest, earthy underbrush. Light tropical fruits. The taste is lovely, clean summery citrus fruits. Lemon peel. Nice earthy hop accents. Nice balance. Crisp finish. Light mineral. Great economy of flavor. Overall, a great beer. I returned to this one multiple times through the evening. A brilliant sessioner.

Scopey (12511) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2013
Keg at CBC Islington. It pours clear golden with a medium white head. The nose is earth, dough, spice, grass, varnish, apricot and nectarine. The taste is upfront bitterness, earth, dough, grass, touch of spice and orange citrus with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and moderate, effervescent carbonation. Smooth, well balanced and rather drinkable!
