UPDATED: JUN 2, 2013 Golden crisp color on the pour from the bottle. I was able to pick up light citrus and sweet aromas. Taste is very clean, crisp and smooth throughout the drink. Only draw back would be very lightly hopped and would have liked a bit more hoppy taste. Other than that, I loved this pale ale and will be going back to it for a go to style beer!

Can from Brewers Haven. Big foamy outburst, very active. Pours a medium. Hold with abundant billowing head. Mild citrus nose on top of otherwise sweet malts aroma. Taste also favors the malts, grassy, not hoppy except for a tinge at the finish, almost minty. Decent weight and feel.

Can@Ølbutikken, Copenhagen (29/07/2016) - fuzzy golden amber coloured pour with white head. Aroma and taste is a mix of tropical and citrus fruits, medium pale malts, some light caramel, grapefruit, peachy, pine needles, refreshing, hoppy bitter finish.

DocLock (9855) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 14, 2016
Shared bottle. Poured hazy straw with off-white head. Nose was piney hops, caramel malt, mild peppery notes. Assertive hoppy and piney flavor, spare malt, some black pepper notes.

jjsint (2251) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2016
Can from Aleś by Mail, drunk at home. Dark gold/amber, tony little bit od white head and quite a bit of carbonation. Papaya, spruce and resin in the slightly muted bit still enjoyable arome. Initial sweet taste, heavy on the małt with more sticky resinous notes. Finish is really short, and palate is thin bordering on watery. But all in all it’s an excellent little pale ale.

Barreras (1539) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JUN 12, 2016
Pours a been color with a sweet malt aroma. Taste is smooth, malty, with a nice crispness. Flavor is well balanced and easy drinking. A nice beer for the style.

WillemsUrenkel (1422) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - MAY 16, 2016
1 pt 6 fl oz bottle bought at a Safeway in Mille Valley, CA. Clear dark golden in the glass with an one finger head. British style hopy on the nose. Taste starts hopy, mid bitterness, some malt in the background. Resin sequence in the middle part with some increasing citrus elements. Really fresh! Enjoyed it!

gunnar (7745) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAY 15, 2016
Can from AbM enjoyed at "Gunnarsbu" Canned 17.07.15. Pours hazy deep golden with a big creamy white head. Resiny and herbal hop aroma. Taste is light crisp resiny hops, some mango and bready sweetness before it finishes off with a minty kiss at the finish. Good, but probably better fresh.

Theydon_Bois (16615) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2016
Keg at the brewpub, 29/01/16. Golden orange with a decent off White head. Nose is toasted malt, straw, orange pith, light hops. Taste comprises tangerines, straw, lemon drizzle, bread dough. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with some hop bitterness offered. Ok APA ... easy drinker but lacks any discernable hop presence to make me want to revisit.

This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a thin one finger white foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace. Bubbly to foamy white lacing glosses nicely around the glass in a messy sort of way. The smell started off with subtle sweet to bitter citrus pulp and rind over top of a nice caramel backbone. The taste balanced nicely between the sweetness of the malt to the sweetness to the hops and then the bitterness of the citrus fits in for a nice overall balance. Semi-dry citrus to malt aftertaste. Dry sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body. Semi-dry citrus/piney - bitterness hitting my tongue - not too harsh. Overall, I wanna say a heavier version of Zombie Dust, slightly...definitely not as smooth as ZD, but I would have this again.
