COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Spring forward with this refreshing seasonal ale. Notes of toasted malt up front with a bright and crisp Northwest hop finish. It’s a session beer that everyone can enjoy.

Pours amber with a white head. Citrus, lemon, pine. Starts off great but didn't really like the finish. Kind of reminded me of a lager. Good mouthfeel. Average pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Un couleur ambrée avec une petite mousse beige/blanche. Le goût a un peu de malt suivi par d’houblon. Pas trop remarquable.

Floral hops are strong in the nose. Slightly hazy golden-copper body is topped by a generous, fine bubbled, white head that lasts throughout and coats the glass with lace. Deliciously malty toasty flavour with a nice complement of floral and spicy hops and fairly pronounced bitterness in the backend. Medium body with wonderful fine bubbled effervescence. Enjoyed on tap at Portland Craft.

Poured from bomber, the last of that 22oz four pack that is out right now. Clear, medium gold in color with a small off white head. Nose was mild, hints of grass and citrus, but not predominant. Taste was on the biiter side. Not too bad, but after trying all four, there appears to be a "Ninkasi" profile emerging, which could be a good thing, similar to my experience with Lagunitas.

10oz. Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver. Slightly muddled golden yellow pour, with modest white head. Nose is fresh and floral (daffodils!).  A very understated, but tasty and balanced ale. Malty start, with a very light sour transition to a bitter finish. Very good and sessionable.

A rather insipid offering from Ninkasi. I was disappointed in almost every way possible with this beer. It looks nice when poured and that’s about it. For being so hyped up I would expect more than just a pretty beer that smells okay.

I had this back in the early spring. I’m not sure why I didn’t rate it. Like almost ever single beer Ninkasi makes, there is a lot of hop flavor. Very original {sarcasm}.

GuinnessHong (147) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2012
Clear, dark golden color, with medium head. Refreshing, hoppy aroma. Fruity, citrus, slightly acidic flavor. Some bitterness & astringency. Slightly bitter aftertaste. Very refreshing & tasty overall.

Sweet floral nose with glistening and creamy white head. Hazy amber. Med body clean resiney hop finish. Decent american pale.

My first Ninkasi, and certainly off to a good start. American Pale Ale seems like a strange choice for a seasonal. Pine hops and malts make for a delightfully fresh ale. Recommended.
