Has a cloudy dark brown color, some floaties in my ber. Smell is on the hoppy side. Taste is hops, some slightly medicianal flavor I can’t quite describe, a little different. Overall a decent beer.

brnandersen (2156) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 24, 2015
Sample from 50 cl. bottle. Hazy amber-golden colour with a creamy, off-white head. Fruity aroma with caramel, hay, citrus, grass and floral hops. Taste is bitter. Medium body with a creamy texture and an average carbonation. Finishes dry and bitter with citrus fruits and caramel malts. Nice APA.

the aroma of citrus and some other tropical fruits and garden berries... the taste is rough and dry, malty with notes of orange, garden fruits and spices... very bright hopping... aftertaste is sweet and bitter, and rather spicy...

VictorSA (173) - NORWAY - DEC 20, 2014
Aroma av mandarin og tørkede aprikoser, med mye malt og karamell. Ikke så fruktig og frisk som en pale ale burde være. Ganske søt og bitter. Kunne heller vært en juleøl.

VDuquerroux (424) - Airvault, FRANCE - DEC 6, 2014
Bottle, 500mL. Home. Batch 899-C. An orange opaque beer with brown hues. Big white foam with big bubbles ; good retention. Aroma of resin, fruit (tropical fruits, orange, red berries), smoke, biscuit. First light sweet, then medium to heavy dry bitter. Light to medium body, thin silky texture, good carbonation, lasting dry bitter finish with a good alcoholic presence. Overall, really pleasant : intense fruity, bitter, and dry. Good balance.

Yorker (1394) - Herning, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2014
50 cl bottle @ home. Pours hazy golden with a little sediment and a white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma and flavour are grapefruit, caramel, and flowers - with a slightly bitter finish.
