3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
50cl bottle. Murky orange. Loads of great mango, tangerine and grapefruit on the nose. Juicy orange and sugary pineapple in the taste, herbal bitterness, lots of thick sprucey notes, cake dough and caramel. Well balanced. Juicy orange finish alongside bitter herbal zing. Really good - chocked full of flavour. Cracking session ale.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Citrus and resin in the sweet aroma, with negligible hints of mango and white grapes. Dry, light tart, quite bitter taste. Nice, thick carbo, accounting for a splendid head and a soft mouthfeel. Not near as complex as I expected it to be. Something’s lacking in this surprisingly boring beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Orange/brown hazy pour with a frothy white head. Citrus, toffee, mandarin, slight banana peel, malts, slight biscuit. Medium carbonation and slightly dry. Another very good beer from an awesome brewery and a great session beer.

Bottled (thanks laiti!). Slightly hazy orange colour, huge foamy head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is mellow toffee, fruits, floral and grassy notes along with some slight nectar and honey as well. Flavour is floral, fruity, nectary, sweet caramel malts and toffee to it. Mellow and pleasant.

Pours copper with a white frothy head. Sweet passion fruit and floral hops on the nose, some resin. Aroma of sweet fruits, cereal malts, and a nice balance coming from the hops. This sets the standard fro american pale ale!

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy orange-to-brown colour with delicate small head but lots of lacing. Aroma is really awesome, there is zesty citrus fruits, sweet tropical fruits, some spices and sweet berries as well. Taste has sweet tropical fruits, pines, spices and citrus with notable bitter ending. Lots of flavors from hops, with medium body and nicely carbonated. Hops rule this pale ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not convincing - thin bodied - malt dominant not enough hops - way over carbonated - I think Nogne suffered from too much indecision as taste is confused and two dimensional.
