3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copenhagen 29/8 2015. Birthday gift from Hamburg from my friend Herr. Luf. Thanks. Pours hazy gold brown with with head. Settles as 0,5 cm thick layer of foam with lacing. Aroma is perfumed with notes of citrus. On the sour side. Soft carbonation. Beer is a bit watery. Flavour is medium bitter with short aftertaste. I have not encountered very many German pale ales. Certainly decent enough - but not anything to write home about.

From the bottle, pours clear orange with quickly vanishing head. Nose is light citrus or pineapple. Just some hints... Taste is bitter witg some typical citric hops. Bitter astringent aftertaste. Not a very good APA...

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Keg at the brewpub, Hamburg, 16/07/15.
Golden orange with a decent off white covering.
Nose is citric rinds, pale malt, straw, strains of perfume.
Taste comprises toasted malt, straw, tangerine, bread dough.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close.
Sub par for style, drinkable but lacks hops and ultimately fails to deliver.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Mixpack from a getränkemarkt outside of Heiligenhafen. Sharp herbal and spicy smell, almost like a snaps or christmas beer. The taste isn’t as off but it has a weird spicy aroma. I don’t get much hops, just a hint. Rough mouthfeel. Medium bitterness. Unclean and not very pleasant.

Bottle shared by Cuso. Aroma caramelly biscuity malty, resiny citrusy hoppy. Clear orange colour. Taste basically as aroma suggests. Nice balance, rather bitter but with good malty background. Also very sessionable. Very good one.
