Seasonal Release Series. 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.

Like many Ninkasi beers, this is an ale more than a specific style, though we put it in the Northwest Pale category. A light toasted malt flavor is more reminiscent of a British Pale, but the hops are bright and very Northwest. Flavorful and easy to drink!

Shared from a big brown bottle into a nonic glass, thanks gregwilsonstl. It poured a clear, light golden colour with substantial white foam, very long-lasting with lace. Strong hoppy aromas, some grains and freshly-cut grass underneath. A crisp, almost neutral malt flavour with strong bitterness balanced against it, resiny and citrusy hop flavours. American profile for sure, but not overwhelmingly grapefruity. It reminded me of Bells Third Coast Beer.

Smells hoppy/floral as can be. Thick amber color and small bubbly head. Tastes a bit tart at first then almost an skunky bitter aftertaste. It’s good but that aftertaste is not for me.

Aroma is quite foresty – pine trees, and a little bit of roasted malt. Pours a golden clear colour with a thick white head with significant lacing. Taste is very bitter, bordering on too bitter even for a pale ale. Feels thin on the pallet with lively carbonation, and a somewhat astringent, bitter finish.

Koskela (505) - Marysville, California, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Floraly citrusy hop aroma up front with a hint of malt in a hazy pale orange brew with a nice white head. A nice carbonation makes for a buttery mouthfeel. A medium body with a very sharp flavor...almost like orange peel. Bitter. Kind of a tin taste as well. A bit bitter for my taste. No malt to balance or offset.

Pours a clear gold with a medium white head. Not much aroma, but sweet malts, crisp, thick mouthfeel, nice bitter aftertaste. Nice spring ale - almost a spring bock.

I wish I could have tried this beer when it was fresh. Tasted mostly like malts when I got to it (late may). ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber thanks to Mike. Pours a clear golden hue with a medium white head. A fruity nose with some pepper. Pretty smooth, clean flavors, pepper, floral hops, light biscuit. Honey. Nice.
