Nice, big and long lasting head. Colour- Orange/gold, beer is almost perfectly clear. Aroma- Caramel and wheat malts and fruity, citrusy and tropical fruits with a hint of herbal, floral touch. Flavour- Quite the same, hoppy, malty. Quite sweet. Bitternes shows its power in the finish. Overall- Very good example of the style. Refreshing, easy drinking, tasty. Maybe a bit too sweet for me.

A hazy, slightly orange-yellow beer, a head is big and blond. The nose is fruitfull, and slightly tropical, citrusfruits and hint of mangos, also nice fructose sweetness. Taste of biscuity malts, fruits, nice and strong bitterness, pine needles and citrusfruits. Medium bodied, nicely smooth to drink. Good beer with the great balance of sweetness and bitterness.

BrunoSanchez (140) - Fermo, ITALY - APR 12, 2014
Magnifica interpretazione dello stile pale ale inglese. Bel colore ambrato con schiuma bianca. Aroma resinoso, erbaceo e di miele. In bocca non stanca mai perfettamente equilibrata tra dolcezza del malto e amarezza del luppolo. Finale secco e piacebolmente amaro.

djoeye (1848) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 31, 2014
Brown 0.5L bottle 6%, normal off white head, diminishes on the slightly hazy light golden body, leaving some lacings inside the mug. Sweet grapefruit peel to the nose, notes of grassy hops. Tastes also sweet grapefruit peel, some fruity malts, juicy hops. Easy drinkable, more malt than bitter on palate, carbonation suits the beer well. Finishes fruity grainy with hops and malts in a somewhat lingering union. Not at all as bitter as many other pale ales. This is a soft american, and maybe women enjoy it too. #1063 tapped4/11-2013 BBF4nov15 b@vinmonopolet, tasted@home.

aleigator (282) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAR 29, 2014
Cloudy, orange yellow color, with a decent white head. Citraic, grassy hops, defined by lime and orange - floral nose, refreshing. Citrus, lime and grapefruit. Refreshing, dry bitterness, supported by subtle hints of bready malts. High carbonation fits well to the straight and honest character of the beer. Dry bitterness is present from the beginning till the end. Hops are defined by citrus, working well with the present bitterness. Easy drinkable with a decent, gritty complexity, while being very refreshing.
