lagery aroma. pale gold beer with white short head. can aluminum lager flavor with slight grapefruit hop/cardboard. modest gravity on palate, light-ish. Doesn’t have much pale ale character. Maybe the hops had dissipated?

Nice cascades aroma, but a hint of alcohol. Good pale ale, could benefit from a fuller body

TimE (3105) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 6, 2006
Hazy amber color, apples, cotton candy, hoppy mouth, with some caramel flavors. Slightly phenolic. Lasting strong bitter finish. A lot up front and at the end, but little in between. More like an IPA.

(500 ml bottle: Obtained 01-Mar-06 in trade with bogdi1, thanks Juha!) Two things jump out when sipping this beer: it has a wonderful, classic hoppy flavor, and it tastes very dusty. Both are very enjoyable, especially the dusty character, a quality I always seem to like in beer. Hops is moderately bitter, but given the mild-mannered maltiness of this beer, the hops really does stand out and really doesn’t diminish much in the finish -- I can still taste the hops several minutes after each sip. The nose definitely seems a lot more malty than the flavor, with the dust and hops showing less dominance here. The palate is clean and somewhat crisp, light-medium in body, and softly carbonated. Golden amber in color and fully cloudy, which is no surprise given the thick layer of dark sludge coating the bottom of the bottle. The off-white head is of moderate size on the pour, but it’s quite creamy and recedes slowly to a thin layer. Not a whole lot of lace though, some small patches here and there is about it. For someone who loves hoppy but balanced beer, this is a very pleasant and easy-drinking pale ale. Damn, this 500-ml bottle sure went fast!

Bottle, 500 ml. Really good looking beer, hazy gold with huge chunks of yeasts swimming around. Aroma is instant hops, aromatic hops. Flavour is hop-dominated, perhaps this is more of an India Pale.. Still, damn fine beer.. A shame this isn’t more available.

henrikb (1258) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2006
Dark golden, huge white creamy head, leaving some laces; Big hoppy fresh nose with a little hoppy fruity fresh sweetness; Soft textured body, very little soft carbonation, balanced; Into very long, very dry bitter finish with lots of hoppy aroma: grass, fresh pine, but also a very little fruity sweetness. Very special unbalanced PA.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2006
50 cl bottle. Yeast at the bottom. Amber colour with a weak head. Aroma of hops, also hoppy flavour, that feels very sharp and not very well balanced.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - JUN 16, 2006
Poured a hazy yellow-orange color witha small white head. The aroma had light citrus notes along with earthiness, apricot and caramel. The flavor starts malty with citrus fruit but then it’s gone. the flavor is very short (could use more of it) and quickly leads to a moderate bitterness. The hop bitterness goes through a long finish. there was some fruit returning at the very end. Medium bodied with a nice mouthfeel. It felt soft but was carbonated.
