3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Good sized frothy white head of dense creamy bubbles. Nice hoppy aroma with some light zesty citrus, some play doh and irish spring soap. Quite the potent aroma. Color is a hazy dark orange. Flavor is quite floral again with a bit of soft bready malts in the back ground. Very different. Sharp, zesty citrus and lemon. Minimal dryness and bitterness in the main body of flavor. Little bitterness at the finish. Lingering zippy citrus. A decent pale ale and better than expected. Or shall I say very different but good. Big thanks to etowneraser for this brew.

Cloudy orange, moderate head with good lacing and retention. Aroma is grapefruit, floral, caramel, various fruits. Flavor brings this, medium bodied and moderate bitterness. Enjoyable APA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light floral hop scent with some hints of caramel malt in the aroma. Mahogany colored body with a nice off-white head. The palate is full and leads to a really easy to drink brew that is nicely balanced between hops and malt. Hoppier than most pale ales--this is very solid.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2007 yeasty for a pale ale. caramel aroma. nice hops, pretty good aroma. sweet. taste is pretty bitter, but actually not too bad. not too good by american pale ale standards though. not much more going on than bitterness although there is an interestingly strong malt backbone. good body. not sure what this beer is exactly.

16.9 oz bottle. Clear tea with a frothy white head. Bready fresh oranges. Quite bitter with a limey edge. Touch of orange marmalade. Oily mineral finish, light carb. A hoppy pale for sure.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from The_Epeeist. Thanks, Chris. Hazy orange with a medium head. Head turns rocky after a while, and leaves spare lacing. Aroma of floral and citrus hops, and caramel malts. Nice, flavorful balance. A little citrus with a huge backbone of malts. Definitely has an American flavor, but it’s falls a little below average in the assertive/hoppy category for the style. Medium body. Extra dry finish. Very good on its own merits.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.5L bottle. Cloudy copper color with a frothy off-white head. Caramel aroma with a bit of bourbon and citrus. Rich malty (toffee) flavor with citrus, honey and some vanilla oakiness. Citrusy hop finish. Full and smooth palate. A little cost prohibitive over here, but a very nice take on an APA from the Norwegians.
