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

ej (926) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - MAY 26, 2015
Can. Pours a pale golden with a fairly large and fluffy white head. Citrus and lemongrass on the nose along with some pale malts in the back. Really fresh and good aroma. Taste is balanced. Not as bitter as one would expect, but rather balanced all the way. The flavors are kind of mellow; light malts, citrus and lemongrass again. Crisp mouthfeel, avg to avg+ co2 levels. Light bodied without being watery. Nice low-alcohol beer.

espenra (916) - Kurland, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2015
50cl bottle. Batch 1170. Brewed 2014-04-28. Best before 2015-04-28. Dark hazy orange colour with a big white foamy head. Aroma is moderately hoppy with notes of malts, bread and grass. Flavour is surprisingly complex. Lots of malts but also bread, citrus, grass and some hops. Short aftertaste.

Nydelig blanding av en kompleks, smaksrik ale og en lett og forfriskende pils. Supert for kos. Leskende, perfekt for sommer. Bør også kunne passe bra til lett mat.

Hazy dark amber with half inch head. Strong herbal medicine scent. Flàvour is even stronger. Like drinking perfume. How many flowers are in here? Very weird floral hop medicine beer. Am i supposed to feel better? Not bad jist weird.

MunBro (731) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 20, 2015
Aroma of citrus and zest. Golden orange pour with a foamy off white head. I’m fine with sediment but this had huuuge yeast chunks. Had to strain it so it didn’t look absolutely gross. Otherwise, a great pale ale. Has a nice crisp citrus bite with a spicy lemongrass finish. Other notes included hay, grass, zest, spices, etc.

reebtogi (4614) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 17, 2015
500ml bottle poured into a fluted glass pours a slightly cloudy golden orange color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is lemon and orange zest with some hints of grass and spice. Taste is a citrus hop bitterness with a light orange zest tartness and a grainy malt sweetness, Light bodied with good carbonation that tickles the palate. A nicely balanced and tasty session IPA that is a sure delight.

Hallstein (244) - Skogn, NORWAY - MAY 16, 2015
0,5L can from Rema 1000 - Pours a hazy golden red. Aroma of citrus, lemonpeel, oranges. Flavor-wise this beer is crisp and refreshing with flavors of light caramel, lemongrass, herbs and spices. I’d say its a good start to Nøgne Ø’s canning, but this wasn’t the best i’ve tried from Nøgne.

patricks110 (1963) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 15, 2015
Pours a bright matte orange with a thin off white head that dies down. Tons of particulate in the body with a hazy appearnace. The aroma is citrus laced, hoppy, a bit floral and perfumy with tons of light spice and ester notes. Mild toasted bready malts, biscuit notes, caramel and toasted wheat. Crisp, tart, citrus accented and well balanced overall. Light to medium bitterness on the finish with lingering citrus tartness.
