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

aleksander9 (450) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 26, 2014
Hazy orange with white head. Aroma is almost like a perfume. Lemon, spices, citrus and grapefruit. Almost like smelling one of those fancy shampoos! Round and fruity palate. Aftertaste is dry, floral, spicy, fruity, some hop bite and lingering fresh lemon finish. Overall: This one was a big surprise. Very nice session beer.

Bosbouw (1269) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - SEP 20, 2014
Troebele oranjegele kleur met een volle kraag. Ruikt fruitig, citrus, hop en toch iets van lemongrass. Smaakt bitter, fruitig, hop, citrus. Iets bittere afdronk.

sebletitje (6711) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 11, 2014
Bouteille 50cl, batch#1138, BB 05/03/2015, bottled on 05/03/2014. Orangée, col épais blanc crémeux. Arôme offre un bouquet généreux rappelant la citronnelle avec un petit ajout de raisin blanc en rétro-nasal. Le tout est agréablement bien fleuri-fruité avec ce côté bergamote. Palais est léger, malté carapils, et toujours un ajout délicieux de bergamote qui apporte une certaine fraicheur au palais sur des notes citronnées. Le tout est sec avec un ajout houblonné de Nelson par un ajout rappelant le raisin blanc. A seulement 4.5%, un vrai plaisir à déguster.

Wolfbass (930) - Firenze, ITALY - SEP 10, 2014
Sinceramente non mi ha fatto impazzire questa asian pale ale, apprezzo l’esperimento. Comunque molto leggera e di facile beva, solo che in bocca non mi garba tantissimo.

Bottle at Cafe Sara, april 16th 2014. Semiclear golden body, medium white head. Aroma of lemongrass, pale malts, citrussy hops. Taste is light sweet, lemon, mild spicy, a bit thin, short bitterness, with a light fruity aftertaste. A good one, though I’m more a fan of the "proper" Aku Aku Lemongrass from Nøgne

metalspice (74) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - SEP 6, 2014
Lyst og uklart med høyt skum. Frisk duft med sitrongress og aprikos. ikke så frisk smak som jeg håpet på, men ett godt og lettdrikkelig øl.

RexTalionis (2458) - FINLAND - AUG 29, 2014
Bottle. Pours darker golden in color with a whitish head. Floral and citrus fruits mixed with green herbal notes in aroma. Lemony notes, minerals and grassyness in taste. Herbs and bit of light spicyness in finish. I do like the quite soft bitterness in this brew.
