Asian Pale Ale is a light and refreshing ale. It has generous amounts of lemongrass, added late in the brewing process to ensure that we capture its light, crisp and tangy aromas. This beer work well as a thirst quenching beverage, as well as paired with asian food, salads and light meat dishes. We recommend to pour cautiously to leave the natural sediments behind. Recommended serving temperature 8 deg C / 47 deg F. Ingredients: Malted barley, malted wheat, hops, lemongrass, English ale yeast and our local Grimstad water. Recommended serving temperature 8 deg C / 47 deg F

DraftDodger (723) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2016
Copenhagen 1/2 2016. 50 cl bottle from Meny. A lot of lemon grass on the label to ensure that you do not miss this vital Asian ingredient when drinking this. Pours hazy golden yellow with white head. Settles as flimsy foamy patches floating around. Aroma is of exotic fruit mingling with citrus fruit - might be the lemongrass. Fizzy carbonation and watery palate. Flavour is suprisingly thin and watery compared to the aroma. Sour citrus and light hints of sweetness. Bitter aftertaste with semi dry finish. All kind of diluted. Smells and looks way better than it tastes.

colui72 (488) - HONG KONG - JAN 7, 2016
Hazy golden with white head. Aroma (which is the best of this beer) is lemongrass, citrus and hops. Taste is weak: like a lemon tea, watery, not very hoppy, ok in summer, but definitely lacks of character and flavour. Just ok.

Icedwarf (1006) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JAN 4, 2016
Goudkleurig bier met schuim. Smaak is licht bitter en wat minder krachtig dan een standaard IPA. Sporen van limoen, thee en ananas. Gedronken in restaurant Becks Osebro in Porsgrunn.

mikeyo1 (518) - Linköping, SWEDEN - NOV 20, 2015
bottle @ home. Pours an almost clear golden to orange liquid with a lasting, creamy, small bubbled white head. The aroma is dry with distinct lemongrass, lemon, pine needle, wheat, toast, oranges, hints of gooseberry and white pepper. Pleasant! Smooth texture with average carbonation. Flavor is dry and moderate bitter with lemon, pepper, wheay, hay, toast, pine needles, white fruits. Lasting, balanced bitterness.

Marduk (4780) - Reval, ESTONIA - NOV 7, 2015
500ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Clear dark golden color. Small size, bubbly white head, stays. Lovely citrus, bit of soap, sweetish, perfume, pine needles in aroma. Light citrus, light pine, sweetish malts in taste. Citrusy hops in aftertaste. Medium carbonation. Light thirst quencher.

FatPhil (12181) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 6, 2015
500ml bottle (K Kamppi, Helsinki)
Pleasant citrussy aroma, quite lemony. Light palate, pleasant carbonation. Lemongrass very clear in the taste, but not too spikey. Light malts, a bit of soapiness too. Refreshing and summery. However, ultimately a bit thin and unsatisfying.
