Bottle. Citrusy modest smell. Body of creamy, buttery malt, with a hint of caramel. Mildly bitter notes of fruity hops, bit of yeast as well. Not bad, gentle apa.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle, poured into La Chouffe tulip. A: Bronze, clear, small tanned head which didn’t hang around long, minimal lacing. S: Cascade and Simcoe hop, mild citrus, not overly fragrant when compared with other APA/IPAs, although this improved as the beer warmed. T: Initially watery, the citrus fruits were prevented from breaking through, but this changed as the beer warmed, moderate bitterness, slightly wheaty finish. M: Slightly sticky texture, lower carbonation as is the norm for the genre. O: Really picked up as it warmed, decent for the price but needed more depth to compete with its transatlantic rivals.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Die Bierothek, Bamberg. Deep gold in colour, with a decent, white, head. A touch of citrus hop, some stone fruits and sweetish malts. A hint of buttery was evident in the finish, but pretty good overall.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
01.08.2014, tap sample @ Altes Mädchen Braugasthaus, Hamburg:
Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is mild and slightly sweet, leafs, caramel malts, lawn, flowers, wet hops, grass, sap. Taste is slightly fresh grassy, leafs, lawn, caramel malts, pine needles, wet hops, sap. Medium bitterness, watery mouthfeel. In a way it’s very nice and easy drinking. Still, it lacks a richer body and feels very watery...

(Draught at Fritz Braugasthaus, Stralsund, 2014). Clearly spicy aroma with hints of citrus and sweet tropical fruits. The taste is similar to the aroma with a good hoppy bitterness in the finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Caramel, mild citrus hop. Quite malty, orange candy, citrus peel, hoppy dry finish. Average pale ale, probably just as targeted by this low-cost/wide-audience craft brewery.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours in copper cloudy body with lacing white foamy head. Aromas fruits, orange, vanilla, floral herbs.Texture is little tart and fizzy mouthful carbonated, body medium full watery. Palate some citrus fruits, hoppy bitter dryness and some sweet notes. Aftertaste is hoppy, fruity with long bitter finish. All in all very pretty OK, but a bit too watery and bland. Still a good basic Pale Ale.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Piana szybko opada. Klarowne, ciemnozłote. W zapachu i smaku wyczuwalny chmiel. Nieco idacy w stronę amerykańskich chmieli, ale jest to ledwo wyczuwalne.
Przyjemnie się pije. Po prostu dobre pale ale.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.33 bottle. Clear, copper color and a medium, off-white head. Hoppy aroma of pines, grass, resin, with a delicate malty touch. Taste is more ambiguous and less clear-cut; it features the same grass and pine-like flavors but also some butter, cream-like smoothness. Medium body, slick texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is a tad more balanced than the rest unlike which it produces a slight aura of quality. Overall the beer is ok but nothing special.
