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!

Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver

Deep blond color, hazy, with creamy head. Some malt and hop aroma, a bit fruity, but lighter than expected. The mouthfeel is rather dry; the malt flavor has a grass and hay accent, some toffee; strong bitterness, with a lot of hop resins, but also a vegetables character; long and strong final.
Ok beer, but below expectations too much vegetable presence in the final.

TBone (14785) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 9, 2011
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.

6% session beer, lol. Sure, if you’re a sumo. Golden-bronze colour. Toasty malt with a touch of apple. Berryish character, splash of bitterness and then there’s a dry, hoppy finish. Ok brew.

Bomber from Bottle Trek. Pours orange amber with a slight white head that died lacing. Aromas of caramel and piney hop. Medium body with smooth, near creamy, carbonation. Flavor is mildly roasted caramel with a lot of floral/citrus/resin. Finishes definitely bitter. Really tasty.

Dogbrick (10001) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2012
Sample at the Tap House Grill in Seattle. The beer is a slightly cloudy orange color with a medium rocky white head that evaporates slowly. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Grassy hops and malt in the nose. Light to medium body with flavors of herbal hops, fruit and malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a grassy hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

DuffMan (8318) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 4, 2010
Bottle, shared with parksy. Pours a slightly hazy deep orange amber with a creamy vanilla head. Toasty and fruity aroma. Very toasty toffee flavours, citrus and conifer hops with a moderately bitter finish. Compared to Pyramid Fling, this had more tout. Very nice.

phaleslu (8006) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 22, 2011
22 oz. bottle from curly- thanks, Jason! Pours a somewhat cloudy bright golden orange color with an inch-thick, rocky off-white head that leaves some lace in the Duvel tulip. Aroma of dry grains, toasted malts, fresh cut grass, toasted sugars, straw, and herbs. Flavor of grassy and floral hops, pale and sweet malts, faint soap, and limestone. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry, mineral mouthfeel. A little mouth-coating bitterness as well. Decent APA.
