3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Quite a British nose: caramel, orange marmelade, fruity, fragrant rather British hops, some oak hints. Taste is more like a Pale Ale, nice and balanced, fruity hops with a soapy edge; a subtle hop bitterness in the finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Amber colour, thin white head. Peach and caramel dominate. Smooth, a little sweet, not very bitter. With it’s relatively low alcohol it’s easy drinking, but it is nothing special.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(33 cl bottle from "Studio" in Ørestad Nord; BBD: October 15th 2015) Poured in a regular (half)pint glass revealing a clear, golden body with lively carbonation and a white, two-finger head. Decent retention and beautiful lace. As someone who has followed the growing inspiration from American beer styles on the German beer brewing scene with interest for a few years you gotta love the text in the commercial description telling the casual German beer drinker not to be afraid of Indian tribes - it’s just not your grandmother’s style of noble hops ;-) Aroma unfortunately falls somewhat short of expectations from an APA featuring Amarillo and Cascade. I get a faint whiff of sodapop and then mostly grain and toffee. Again this could be down to the age on the bottle. The impression on the palate is mediocre with a somewhat watery texture, a medium to light body, the aforementioned lively carbonation and a short and not very self-conscious finish. Flavour has some bitterness that is a bit weird - notes of grass and chalk. For a 5,6% ABV this is rather watery and light-bodied. This could be okay if the aroma was dialled up with fresh dry hopped stuff but in this (somewhat aged) bottle that I got served it’s not satisfying - especially at the import price of 7€/bottle.
