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

rosenbergh (6526) - Helsinki, 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.

Cunningham (4325) - Halden, NORWAY - JUL 14, 2014
Pours a lovely cloudy pale golden color with a fine white head on top that gives a fine lacing on the glass. Summer aroma. Lots of lemongrass and citric. Solid body for an 4,5% ale. Moderate sweet and a fresh bitterness. Average carbonation. Smooth balanced citric and lemongrass flavor and mild tropical fruity. Lovely summer ale.

lusikka (5996) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 13, 2014
500 ml bottle @ Gastropub Nordic, Tampere. Pours a hazy golden colour with a small head. Aroma is quite herbal with lemongrass and green tea. Flavour of herbal hops, floral notes, some graininess, lemon, weed and earth. Light bodied and lively carbonation. On a hot day such as this I really enjoy beers like this.

Marstonlad (395) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 12, 2014
Pours amber with a big, frothy head. Aroma of exotic fruitiness, more exotic than the usual citrus themed one found in this style. Also some floral hop aroma appears. Taste is initially light sweet, later a bit drier. Bitterness rises toward the finish; it is only medium though. Flavours of apple, lemon and orange feature with maltier notes; the malt character is prominent here as it affects the flavours too. The palate is light to medium bodied, slick. Nice, original pale ale overall.

500ml bottle from Meny Grønland. Medium off-white head with big bubbles. Clear golden/yellow body. Aroma is malt, citrus and vanilla. Pretty light. The lemongrass is present on the tongue. Some orange taste. Well balanced. Refreshing and enjoyable.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2014 Klar gylden farge, medium skum. Aromaen er sitron, gjær(?), malt og blomster. Smaken er sitron, gress og malt. Mildt bitter. Litt for tynn konsistens. Sitron og mild bitterhet i ettersmaken.

tiong (3647) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUL 2, 2014
500ml bottle from K-Citymarket Sello

Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma of tangy lemon, mild hoppiness, crisp malts and some spiciness. Taste is mildly hoppy, smooth and tangy with some hints of lemon. Finish is grassy and mildly hoppy. Okay, quite easygoing pale ale. Goes well with asian food, as you would expect from the name.
