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!

Bottle: Orange color with a white head. The nose is hoppy and fresh, lots of citrus pine notes and a light medicinal or lotiony malt note. The flavor is clean with more bitter hops and dry hops, but that lotiony thing isn’t going away and it adds a twang at the end of the finish. Good, but doesn’t build on you.

CampesinoTino (799) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 11, 2010
Bomber. Aroma is pine, resinous hops and pineapple. Appearance is a peach golden color with an inch of pillowy white head. Nice lacing patterns around the glass. Taste starts off with toasted malt and orange citrus followed by dry herbal hops, pine, caramel and biscuits. Mouthfeel is dry and a little watery with medium carbonation. It finishes crisp and tangy with a strong bitter aftertaste. Overall flavor is refreshing although quite heavy on the tangy citrus flavors and astringently bitter. Decent spring session beer.

22oz bottle..if this is a session beer then its a very good one. great floral and citrus nose. hazy yellowish orange color and nice lacing. the flavor of the hops is very nice for such a light beer. if i could get it here i would buy it. works great with sushi.

Nose is floral, lightly citrusy with notes of biscuit and toasted malts. Pours golden, decently lasting head and lace. The flavor is dry and biscuity, toasty, with mostly floral notes and light citrus. Dry and light, easy to drink. Decent, but not that interesting to me.

thetmaxx (836) - West Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 5, 2011
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.

Out of a bottle into a pint glass. Golden pour to light amber once in the glass. A nice half finger of head formed and held. Wow, honeysuckle, lime and grapefruit in the background. An excellent fragrance. Lots going on in this drink. Soft texture and honey at first, moving to lots of carbonation and a hop kick and ending with a touch of honey again. The first drink was surprising, but after a couple it is nice. It tends towards an IPA with the amount of hops coming through. It is probably on the edge of its style but that only makes me like it a little more. A little confused with the abrupt changes from honey to hops and back again... but definitely worth a sixer.

Gerbeer (2569) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 24, 2012
650 ml bottle from Central City. Pours a copper/amber with light head, nice lacing and lots of carbonation. Aromas of hops and malts. Not overly hoppy. Toasted malt flavor with a bit of citrusy hops and bitter finish, but overall well balanced. Easy to drink - definitely a session beer to share.

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.

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

In a tulip glass at Monk’s Kettle at a Ninkasi paired dinner. Pours a brushed gold with a fluffy white head. Lots of buiscuit and bread with a clean meadow scent showing very late. Palate is very bitter and some nice grass hops at the end. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied to slightly thin.
