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

Nez fruité, mais un peu fermé. Couleur or voilé. Bouche intéressante, fruitée, herbacée. Finale agréable et fraiche. Pas mal rafraîchissant. Herbeux.

Can at home. Aroma is citrus, grassy, hops, lemongrass, spicy, ginseng, herbal tea. Flavour is moderate to medium bitter. Body is light to medium. Very ’Asian’ indeed, lots of spicy and herbal notes, refreshing hoppy lemongrass. Nice one.

Burk 0,5 liter (COOP Oslo). Oklar gul-orange med ett vitt skum. Intensiva dofter och smaker av citrongräs. I smaken också peppar, gräs och örter. I doften också gräs och frukt. Funkar förvånansvärt bra.

Rating #1739 - 2015.06.09 - Bottle from CBI -Pours golden with a bubbly white head. Aroma is lemongrass, lemon rind, mild herbal. Medium carbonation, mild alcohol warmth on the palate. Cool hoppy zip really extrapolates the best out of the lemongrass character of this. Salmon maki, shaved ginger and some spicy rice. Hit me.

Percy0103 (649) - MEXICO - JUN 30, 2016
Bottle, 550ml. A cloudy amber beer with minimal white head. Aroma is of lemon, hops and citrics. Taste is moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Very light bodied and feels somewhat watery. Fizzy carbonation and faint astringency, with a floral (bambu-like) aftertaste.

Alengrin (4594) - BELGIUM - JUN 26, 2016
An APA spiced with lemongrass, depicted on the otherwise typically sober label. Irregular, coarse, bubbly, moussy, off-white head on top of a lightly hazy peach blonde beer with vivid sparkling. Quite straightforward aroma of indeed some dry lemongrass (but less fragrant than I expected), next to dried flowers, grape peel, starfruit, baker’s yeast, toasted white bread, bitterroot, white pepper, dry earth, sourdough, dried peppermint (probably the lemongrass again), raw pineapple, hay, soap, fresh yellow grapefruit peel, some stale urine (old hops?). Crisp onset, clean, with vague fruity accents of green banana and starfruit, subdued sweetishness, minerally, gently carbonated, spicy touches here and there, over a lean, supple body, a bit grainy, somewhat bready and soapy (wheaty), lightly toasted, evolving into a drying, spicy, earthy hoppiness yielding floral and peppery aromas retronasally and leaving behind a thin but long-lasting, spicy bitterness. Lemongrass blends in with the hops but remains very subtle, even though the brewery states it was added late in the brewing process in order to capture its aromas; I had other lemongrass-flavored beers with more delicate exotic spiciness to them so either this bottle is already past its prime, or the lemongrass hasn’t been applied all too succesfully. Other than that, this is a perfectly fine, well-crafted APA, but I hadn’t expected anything less from them.
