Bottle from Stockmann. Hazy, light orange color and small but thick head. Aroma has caramel, hops, fruits. Sweet taste that ends to nice long hoppy, quite dry and bitter aftertaste. Flavors of grape, caramel, black pepper, hops. Excellent pale ale with this kind of alcohol percentage.

on tap at beergeek in prague. pale orange colour with a light haze; oddly but agreeably unfruity - extremely dry finish, hints of chalk, minerals, limestone, baking soda. not what i would have guessed i wanted in an apa but i found it a pleasant change from juicy, fruity ales

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light amber with big fluffy unstable off white head. Massive hops with tropical fruits, tangerine, lime, flowery and light resin. Then a light malty body with a touch of nuts and caramel, but the whole ale is quite thin and dry and the malt backbone takes a backseat. Therefore mainly bitter and slight tartness and the sweetness is very light. Light to medium bodied with quite a lot of carbonation. Pretty nice stuff for the abv.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
50 cl. bottle split by 3 @ “Memorabel Tastingkje”. Thanks to tderoeck! Average creamy off-white head. Good lacing, lightly cloudy amber. Nose is typical pine resin & grapefruit peel hops mixed with some herbal notes (les usual) touch more malt presence, cereal. Taste is touch sugar, bread, cereal + 50/50 herbal + pine & grapefruit peel hops, herbal lingers more in the finish, faint vanilla upfront. Medium body, touch malt feel, good carbonation. Standard fare but well-done and definitely satisfactory.
