3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.2oz bottle in a lager glass. Pours amber with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of citrusy and floral hops, caramel malts, and a little toasted dough. Flavor the same with a good amount of hops and malts. Average texture. A good version of a pale ale, that I’d like to try fresher

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Apr 2015 - Keg at Draft House. Cloudy vibrant orange, opaque, seemingly still, small white head, full lacing. Aroma is earthy spice, wet card, white onion, a touch sour. Body is medium to light, spritzy, rounded, slightly foamy. Taste is earthy, drinking oats, soft tangerine, straw, flowery dry hops, watered down fruits. The oats bring a dry savoury vibe to the citrussy proceedings. Quite nice.

The pour started clear golden until the bottom yeast came out and it turned a bit cloudy. And even when poured gently, there produced a generous rocky white head. The nose presents a bit grassy and earthy, like a European interpretation on an American Pale ale, with a slight touch of lemon rind and earthy hop oils on a biscuity body. Clean yet tantilising flavor with lemon peel and earthy leafy hoppiness, with some bitterness and earthy noble hops on the taste, with an underlying biscuity sweet pale malt base. Through and through this tastes like a Euro-version of a APA, and that ain’t no bad thing because this is tasty with a certain old world charm.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Barwa: niesamowicie mętna, żółć piwno-kanarkowa; przypomina witbira. Aromaty owocowe, z przewagą grejpfruta. I podobnie w smaku: na start kwaskowate, finisz mocno goryczkowy - jak w grejpfrucie właśnie. Pijalność bardzo duża - gdyby nim w Polsce zastąpić w lecie połowę rodzimego kraftu schodziłby jak świeże bułeczki. Póki co muszę się nacieszyć małym 0,33, które ledwo dotrwało do końca tego opisu. Plusem jest też fantazyjna butelka z rozpuszczoną świecą.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours hazy pale gold with two fingers of loose off white head diminishing gradually to a thick cap, moderate chunky lacing. (3/5) Nose is mango, caramel malt, tangerine, wet grass, mild oatmeal. (6/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderately strong bitter. (6/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, building bitter finish. (3/5)
Not bad, not great. Decent bitter, but there’s a bit of an odd note that doesn’t really seem to work with the citrus. The oatmeal also seems to dull the citrus hops. Can’t say I’d try it again. (12/20)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(330ml bottle @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Mar 14 2015) Pours totally clouded dark gold with a moderate lingering white head and lace. Aroma of mango skin, mandarin, tart citrus juice, wet vegetation, light caramel sweetness. Flavour of white grapefruit, mandarin flesh, kind of tart, thin and citric. Softly bitter and softly sweet pale malt with a little biscuit and grain. Lightish but kind of creamy body with soft carb. Easy to drink but maybe not the freshest because the flavours don’t really pop. Still would try on tap if it shows up fresh at Omnipollos Hatt and reevaluate.

Bottle. Super hazy golden pour with frothy white head. Tropical and citrus fruit hop aromas take over. Citrus and a light sweet malty tone, assuming oatmeal, different but fresh and enjoyable.
