COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

Z beczki. Niezwykle przyjemny aromat: świeże drożdże, tureckie galaretki różane, nutka werbeny. W smaku rozcieńczony sok z grejpfruta, potem jakieś owocowe perfumy, zamiast goryczki raczej cierpkość trawy cytrynowej. Taki lekki letni wynalazek, miły, czysto sesysjny.

humpah (78) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAY 1, 2016
500ml can version at home. Pours light amber colour with moderate head. Really grassy and citrusy aroma. Light to medium body, some bitterness. Citrus and lemongrass are pretty dominant here. Pretty easy to drink.

AnG_BrgNor (408) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 21, 2016
Bottle. Aroma is citrus, grass and malt. Taste is much of the same, but includes herbs, soap and is more grassy. Not the best Nøgne beer...

mile (3753) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 20, 2016
Can. Golden, cloudy, average to large and mostly lasting head. Moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, light fruitiness and citrus/herbal notes (lemongrass) caramel, light hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, light fruitiness and citrus/herbal notes with light hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and dryish, light fruitiness and some citrus/herbal notes with light hoppyness. Not big fan of spiced ales. Here you have more lemongrass than hoppyness/hops. Taste is bit medicinal. Curiosity, not very enjoyable PA. Nice head though.

Nonshaugen (370) - Fetsund, NORWAY - MAR 14, 2016
50 cl, bottle conditioned (also available in cans). It’s recommended to pour gently and leave sediments in the bottle, so that’s what I do. Semi-clear golden amber in the glass, thin white head, low level of carbonation. Aroma is malty and citrusy. Mouthfeel is dry and very bitter. Taste is kind of balanced, but the lemongrass and citrus are dominating.

Clear golden color. Medium carbonation. Has an aroma citrusy hops and unused diapers. Quite dry and bitter. Some herbal hop flavors and some lemony citrus note, and some resin. Ok, but had a very uncomplex, bitter palate.

Unde (802) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 10, 2016
Hazy yellowish beer with thick nice looking head. Aroma has citrus fruits, sweet tropical fruits, lemongrass also. Taste is sweet with tropical fruits, fresh grapefruit and citrus. Lemongrass ending with bitter hops. Light body and very high carbonation. Nice and fresh pale ale with a twist.
