3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rich aroma of malt and fruit. Already in the fragrance is no doubt this is a true American, it radiates namely real west coast pale ale with its fruity aroma hops blended malt. The foam is persistent and a little rough. Lovely rich flavor where the malt adds a delicate fruity sweetness which perfectly taken over by hops and bitter aftertaste. Perfect balance between sweetness and bitterness, long lasting and slightly spicy aftertaste. Lots of good American hops.
