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

Cloudy light golden appearance with little head. Tastes of citrus, Christmas tree and light caramel or nuts. Very quenching, a bit too carbonated, and a hoppy aftertaste

mariuszek (621) - Gdynia, POLAND - SEP 17, 2015
Golden, medium, lasting head, some lacing. Aroma of resin and pine with some lemon and sulphuric notes. Taste is resin with some lemon. Watery texture medium to high carbonation. OK. Lemon grass is present here, but this brew is still not appealing and boring. No bitterness. Nothing special.

Plovmand (7109) - Helsinge, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2015
Bottle. It pours hazy golden with a bubbly white head. Lots of sediments. The aroma is loads of lemon grass. That’s basically it. Highly bitter flavor of fresh lemon grass. Spicy citrus fruits. Very refreshing but a bit one dimensional.

Light yellow to golden in colour, very big scum and in the beginning it felt over carbonated, but after a few minutes when the beer adjusted to outside temp this was no longer an issue. Aroma had definitely lemon-grass in it, along with some light malt, spices and citrus tones. Taste had lots of lemon-grass and this beer would work very well with lightly spice foods. Body was medium with a nice long bitterness that was both from the lemon-grass and the hops and at 4.5% alcohol and just 10 IBU it had great balance between aroma and taste.
