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.

Deep golden pour from bottle. Nice white head. Aroma is pine and bread. Taste is citrus, light hops and grass. A very clean, very enjoyable beer. I would drink this one again for sure.

A Tale of Two Bottles - first was Eh, at best. Second was stellar. Nice toasted cracker malt backbone. Big wet, fresh hops on the nose. Sharp and powerful hop presence with a pronounced tart grapefruit citrus. Some deep grassy notes with a huge floral hop presence and notes of pine. Crisp, light dry finish. Very nice pale that doesnt shy away from the great Northwest hop tradition.

The only things as good as Ninkasi’s year-round beers are their seasonals, and this new one is a charmer. First tried it on a break during a long bike ride on a sunny day. Very refreshing, for a Pale, and perfect for that awkward transition between winter strong ales and summer wheat beers.

Clear amber with an off white head. Grassy ganja skunky smoke aromas with earthy floral; pretty nice, actually. Medium body. More straightforward flavor is tasty floral hops with honey sweet pale malts. Easy drinking and flavorful.

Aubrey (3451) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAR 2, 2011
Medium body, snappy hops and 6 percent ABV may be a bit too much for some, but this is a highly sessionable beer to me. Malts are toasty and cracker-like with a subtle, cake-like sweetness. Hops are extremely flowery and somewhat citrusy (lemon mostly). A grassy bitterness lingers for a good amount of time on the tongue and continues to waft with floral notes. Good stuff. I think I’ll have another.

This is a great beer for spring. It is light and has great flavor. It is a tad bitter but its good.

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.
