fiercepanda (524) - Missouri, USA - AUG 7, 2014
A clear orange beer with a small white head. The aroma is earthy, grainy, with light citrus and pine. The flavor is more fruity and kind of sweet with a good dose of bitterness.

Fluxing (275) - POLAND - AUG 3, 2014
Kolor jasnobursztynowy, lekko zmetnione. Piana niska, szybko opada, zostawia cienka obraczke i nie oblepia szkla. W aromacie amerykanski chmiel, lekkie ziola i kwiaty, sporo karmelu i zboz, lekka siarka i lekki metal, mimo iz na skorze go nie czuc, ogolnie aromat srednio intensywny. W smaku pelne, ale niezbyt slodkie, wyraznie metaliczne, mocno zbozowe i karmelowe, lekko nieprzyjemnie kwasne, takze lekko alkoholowe. Goryczka niska, lekko sciagajaca i zalegajaca, glownie ziolowa, moze lekko grejpfrutowa, niestety takze alkoholowa. Wysycenie bardzo wysokie, jak w korpolagerze.

EyeAmBaldman (222) - Illinois, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Pours Amber with an off white head. Aroma has that skunky funky tone to it. Taste is nice with a hint of skunk and hops. Pretty good pale ale.

Tasted like a pale ale. Normal sized head with a ruby look to it. Great taste. Could drink this all night.

Pale ale de 35cL, bon gout de cereales. À réserver aux amateurs de bières plutôt amères. Les 5.6deg. font qu’elle n’est pas très alcoolisée mais elle est cependant puissante.

Bottle. It’s an ok pale ale. I guess it is the original. So it deserves some respect.
