ronaldtheriot (1690) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - APR 9, 2016
Cardinal Pale Ale has a thick, spongy, bone-colored head, a hazy, orange-gold appearance, and lots of lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of floral and citrus and white bread, and the flavor is of those pleasant elements, with mild hop oil bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and a bit grainy, and Cardinal Pale Ale finishes dry and mellow. RJT

blackisle (1737) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - JAN 25, 2016
Can 17fl.oz. Hazy medium amber, small frothy off-white head, diminishing slowly, good lacing; aroma is pale malts, apricot, light grapefruit, pine; taste is medium sweet and bitter, with average to long duration, malty, light fruity, touch of toffee, mild dry bitter finish, pine notes; medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation; nice but rather tame for an APA, but perhaps therefore very quaffable.

olio (8747) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 11, 2016
355 ml can @ Timo A.
Pours clear golden color with a small head. Aroma is apricot and floral hops on the nose, some resin and maybe even peach. Flavor is sweet fruity with apricot and orange, mild resinous hops and pine. A bit too malty for my taste, not that hoppy either. Slightly disappointing.

Sampled at GABF 2015. In the tasting glass a golden orange with a white head. Nose of citrus hops. Medium in body. Flavor is a good balance between clean malts and citrus/floral hops. Fruity finish. Easy drinking and tasty. Like this one a lot
