Quack-Duck (8653) - Down South, GERMANY - JUL 26, 2015
bottle, courtesy of pivnizub! Hazy orange colour, fluffy white head, fruity nose. Medium-bodied, malty start with quite pleasant fruity flavours and a pleasant hoppy bitterness. Much better than expected.

The beer pours out in a cloudy golden colour with a steady head and medium body. Aroma of yeast and hops. Taste of yeast, wheat, bread, fruit salad. Yeasty finish.

Bottle as "First Bavarian Pale Ale" from Dilo in Bochum. The beer has got a hazy golden-amber colour with a steady head and medium body. Aroma of hops and grains. Taste of hops, grains, straw, mild fruits and light herbs. Mild finish.

pivnizub (9400) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUN 20, 2015
Bottle(as Apostelbräu First Bavarian Pale Ale): Cloudy to "milky", big off-white - very stable - and very creamy head; sourish-grainy nose with aromas of unripe wheat, turpentine and yeast; moderate dry sourish-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied, slightly adstringent MF; lingering sourish-fruity and bitter finish. Too sour, no pleasure…

ippopotamo36 (779) - Rome, ITALY - APR 28, 2015
0,50 bottle at Peschiera del Garda-Italy. Pours extremely cloudy yellow bright, huge frothy white cap. Nose: citric hops, a bit of pine needles. Mouth: kind of confusing but ok, grainy with a strong American style orientation. Far too bitter and herbal in the end. Inoffensive ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Atom (1816) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 17, 2015
Bottle pours a clear pale copper with a huge off-white head. Dry caramel malt with grassy dry hops. I can really taste that German malt, has some faded grassy hops. Maybe slightly better than your average German macro lager.

Man, that’s a huge head of foam! I see a cloudy yellow gold liquid underneath. A mix of hop smells I get. Grass, pine, a bit of citrus and, that smell of spelt malt that I’ve come across before. The taste is somewhat hoppy, grass stands out I think, the spelt malt, as usual, adds an almost vegetal character to it. Not much sweetness to this Pale Ale. Nice mouthfeel, easy to drink. I like this but it does take some getting used to.

Pailhead (5732) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle: The aroma has light caramel, fruit, and herbal/spicy notes. It pours a hazy (bordering on cloudy) dark orange with a large creamy off-white head that has great retention. There is a lot of soapy webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of caramel and faint citrus. The finish has some moderate herbal and spicy notes with some light lemon peel.

obguthr (4659) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Babyfood banana and honey. Clear amber, thick sticky head. Honey flavor, awfully metallic, tangy. Soft carbonation, thin. Has a very British feel, and not much in the way of a recognizable hop presence.

argo0 (12291) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 4, 2014
50cl bottle. Large white head atop lightly hazed light amber body, though the second pour reveals yeasty murk. Aroma is medium sweet, spicy, orange, some bread, light banana. Taste is medium sweet, spicy, some banana, lemon peel/grapefruit. Light-medium body, some effervescence, nicely drinkable.
