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

wvhoran (168) - Rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2014
On tap at Kaapse Brouwers. Hazy light golden-orange with a white head, nicely served in a Nøgne Ø pint glass! The aroma has plenty of lemongrass, some citrus fruits, pine, light malts. The flavour is smooth lemongrass, pine, medium bitterness, low carbonation. The body is very light but I was expecting such. I like it a lot, great thirst-quencher.

KnutAlbert (6067) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 11, 2014
Hazy gold - fluffy head. Grapefruit, resin, very bitter fruit - quite to my liking. The lemongrass flavor would be great with Asian food. Very refreshing.

Finn (4134) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2014
Flaske 500ml fra Meny Oslo City. Gyldenbrungul. Pent luftig skum som daler sakte. Uklar. Forsiktig syrlig fruktaroma. Sitron. Smaken det samme. Blir litt tørr i avslutninga. Et friskt & godt sommerøl. Litt bunnfall igjen i flaska.

Beer4000 (4434) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 23, 2014
500 ml bottle. Slightly unclear golden body with a nice off-white head. Aroma is dominated by lemongrass with a hint of malt and citric fruit in the background. Flavor is much the same, dominating lemongrass, some sweet malt, citric fruit and moderate bitterness. Medium body and lemongrass in the aftertaste as well. Tasty, balanced and super refreshing beer for the summer and Asian food. Feels quite heavy on the lemongrass, but you get used to it by the second bottle.

rosenbergh (6663) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 18, 2014
500 ml bottle. #1167. BB 24/04/15. (K-Citymarket) Tampere, Finland.
Hazy orangey golden colour with a big foamy white head. Tropical fruits, citrus, mild bitterness, mild fruity sweetness and malt in the aroma. Delicious aroma. The flavour is tropical fruits, mild citrus, mild grassy bitterness, dry malt and some spices in the aroma. Some hoppy bitterness in the aftertaste. Not bad.
