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

The citrus hit you at the end which is a wonderful feeling when this golden brew goes down the throat. Its just 4,5 avp but that doesnt hide away the tastes at all! Just close your eyes and imagine you are on a beach..

bartlebier (2363) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAR 10, 2015
Draught pint@Nøgne Ø Tap Takeover, Red Hot, München 03/2015. Pours a buttermilky yet crisp, faint yellow. Aromas of lime peel, herbal tea, blossom and very faint lemongrass hover above a dense protein-frothy cap. Excellent pale ale dryness, bordering on saison, maybe because of the added lemongrass astringency or hop profile. Drinks a tad heavier maybe than its 4,5%, but very quenching, with a drying lime peel finish.

50 cl bottle@home. Approx 8 celcius in high glass. Cloudy amber color with off white head. Good aroma of hop, citrus and lemongrass which is also reflected in the taste. Distinct bitterness in aftertaste. Next time I will be more careful with the sediment as there was really a lot of it and try to see if that affects the taste. Good job to get this much taste into a beer with only 4,5% alcohol!

500 ml bottle. Hazy golden colour, thick white head. Citrus-fruity, hoppy aroma. The flavour is malty, dryish, with spicy notes and a lemony, bitter hoppy finish. Tasty and refreshing.

@ Basunen 15-1-24: ganska lätt doft med en liten hint av gurka. Smaken är lätt syrlig med en liten hint av citron. Mycket snäll. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

olsvammel (3803) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 18, 2015
On tap at Örebro Ölcafé. Hoppy smell with fruits, mostly citrus. Similar taste. Distinct but not overpowering bitterness. It has a light funk to it, is it the lemon grass I’m sensing? Refreshing. Summer beer.

Tap på ölcaféet i Örebro. Bärnstenfärgad med lätt vitt skum. Tydlig doft av citrogräs. Mediumfyllig kropp. Frisk, torr smak med framträdande smak av gräs, peppar och citrus.
