Blueshawk (349) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 10, 2016
- bernstein, mit guter, anhaltenderr Schaumbildung - Aromen nach Pfirsich, Mango und Grapefruit - passende Carbonisierung - der Antrunk ist überraschend würzig mit einer leichten Harznote - im Mittelteil kommt noch ein leichter Malzkörper hinzu - erst im Abgang legt die Bitterkeit noch einen Zahn zu, aber leider auch verbunden mit einer leichten Wässrigkeit Fazit: Gut ausbalanciertes Pale Ale

Pours deep amber with medium head. Medium bodied and medium carbonated. Aroma of American hops (some citrus, some resin), medium bitternes with fruit flavor. Highly drinkable and without any flaws.

This is a well balanced beer from the bottle. Nice amount of hops and great body. 5.6% alcohol and minimum fruit taste. This is a nice regular drinking ale. An interesting bottle. Recommended.

Sircatis (112) - FRANCE - SEP 8, 2016
Bière découverte au Mondiale de la Bière à Mulhouse il y a quelques années. Première initiation à la dégustation d’une Pale Ale. Bière doucement fruitée et houblonnée avec légère une amertume de Pils allemandes. Bonne bière

Dahlstrom (295) - Nygatan 29, SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2016
355 ml bottle from Systembolaget. Cloudy golden with a medium white head. Moderate hoppy aroma of citrus and pineapple; moderate maltiness of bread, caramel and resin. Taste reflects the aroma. Medium body, with a semi-slick texture. Average carbonation. Medium bitterness.

Pours amber with a white head that laces the glass. Aroma is grapefruit, pine and grass. Has a full body with a great balanced taste. Great beer.

DarkSong (357) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - AUG 26, 2016
12 oz bottle. It pours a pale amber color with a small white, quickly fading head. It has a bready malt aroma, a resin and grapefruit aroma, and a little pine aroma. This beer is wonderfully balanced. The malt and hop flavors go together wonderfully. I taste pine and bread, with a little floral and some resin. I really like this beer. I was very surprised that I had not rated it.

Perfectly balanced pale ale. Old reliable. Many times I scan the offerings and end up taking home a six pack of this fine ale and am never disappointed.

Light amber pour with a white head. Small clumps of yeast floating around from bottle conditioning. Light caramel and floral hop aroma. Flavors of caramel, a hint of pine, and an assertive hop bitterness to finish.

MattChiasson (43) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2016
Benchmark American Pale Ale. Out of the bottle, poured a beautiful deep copper colour with slight haze from bottle conditioning, and with a creamy persistent head. I got aromas of grapefruit citrus, orange peel, pine, and wildflower honey. Moderate caramel malt, moderate hops with lingering bitterness. Very well balance. Creamy, refreshing. Excellent.
