JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, - JUL 10, 2008
Cloudy yellow-peach color with a cottony head. Smells grapefruit and cotton candy. Taste is sweet and hoppy pine. Flat though, needs carbonation. Hops and sweetness are good, could just benefit from some gas. Maybe an old keg. Lacing is good. Aftertaste is drying. Sampled on draught at the brewery in Arlington, VA.

Good solid pale. Great grapefruit aroma. Kinda cloudy but didn’t affect taste. Good initial bitterness. A slight grassy. Actually I enjoyed the fresh cut lawn feeling. Clean finish. Always happy with RB beers.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2012
Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Credited to the Arlington location. Pours a clear golden with a lacing white head. Rather flowery hop aroma. Medium body, sweet clean pale malts with a flowery hop bill. Subdued bitterness. Reminds me more of a southern German style lager actually. 200912

tomciccateri (995) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JUN 24, 2012
On cask at brewpub in June. Pours a dense straw color with a lasting white head and lace. Up front hoppy aroma. Light body. Big hop bitterness dOminates flavor profile. Hop flavors mask the light maltiness. A bit too much for any semblance of balance.

Reviewed from notes. Pours a pale copper color with a white head. Not much lacing forms and the head isn’t terribly long lasting. The nose brings some orange and other citrus as well as a bit of pine. Some pale malts in there as well. The taste is a bit loss hoppy with moderate orange notes and some lightly-sweet pale malt. The feel is pretty nice with lingering bitterness; the combination of the lighter flavors with good bitterness leads to a really nice level of drinkability. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 10-24-2010
