On tap at the brewery. Clear dark yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is lemon and citrus. A hint of pine notes in there. Lots of Simcoe hops maybe. Tons of lemony aspects to this one. Flavor was lightly bitter, citrus, lemon. Nice drinker.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle:   Orangish side of amber, fine sediment abounds, moderate frothy off-white head, spotty
lacing, very little carbonation.   Soft musty malt nose, very faint hop and sweetened citrus zest.
Pale hop bitterness on the tongue, a little mealy and soily, minor.   Otherwise malty with a slight
astringent citrus zest.   Not as sweet as the nose suggests.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.
Finish is a little stale.   Lingering wet cardboard.   Could stand to be brighter.   Not bad, but

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Bevmo: Created a thick pillow of foamy head that was thick like shaving cream while the liquid was a golden blonde color with a little bit of sediment floating around. The aroma is spicy and floral with signs of squeezed citrus perhaps orange and lime. Also, there is a trace of oily and sticky green hops that really sets this apart from the other ales coming out during spring time. The flavor is moderately bitter with notes of citrus like hops and a base of grainy type of malts. First beer by this brewery and it’s an optimistic beginning, so I will need to try more stuff from them.

The texture is light with bitter aftertaste. Nothing especially prominent, easy to drink but lacks character

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled 0,65l (bottle bought in Portland, OR)
Deep golden color, small white head. Bready malty, honeyish, a bit herbal aroma. Medium-bodied. Sticky leafy, grassy hoppyness with woody-piney notes. Lingering piney bitterness in the aftertaste. Aroma was a bit off, but flavorwise a solid brew.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lightly clouded orange hue, delicate but enduring head formation. Herbal, hoppy aroma, a little mint, mild caramel malt. Some caramel but very light on the malt, fair amount of hop citrus in the finish makes this more of a refresher than a serious pale ale. At least it drinks well while there’s a nice touch of orange in the aftertaste.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from the bomber into a glass. Seemed fitting as we have been having a really wet spring. Pours a light amber color, amd pretty clear. Decent head with lacing. Aroma is grassy and earthy. Flavour is also earthy. Mouthfeel is watery, definitely thin and finishes bitter. Overall this is not the best impression of ninkasi, hopefully their other stuff is better.
