Continuing my voyage of discovery through North American beers (or at least the few that trickle into my local supermarket) I found this exceptional little bottle with an astonishingly complex aroma of herbs, flowers, even incense. Malty taste, and what I am coming to recognise as typically dry American bitterness.

I know many people like this beer but it doesn’t work for me. I find it difficult to drink and find it’s flavor somewhat confusing and complex. Sure, there is a lot going on here but just doesn’t satisfy my taste. Technically, it a good beer but not my cup of tea at all.

Very nice aroma with an average, golden appearance. Excellent malty flavor and great mouthfeel, although a bit short finish Overall a very drinkable pale ale.

very good bitter tasting beer. If you are not into beers with a bite, don’t try. one of the few beers I consistently purchase.

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2006 I honed my taste for hops on this flowery ale. This beer has one of the most distinctive floral aromas of any pale ale I’ve had with such a large distribution. Don’t let your ability to buy this beer at the grocery store fool you--it is good beer. Seek it out on tap.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - APR 18, 2005
Fine though disappearing white head, cloudy orange body. Mild but fresh hop aroma with fruity notes. Hop and grass in the flavor, rather sharp with a good bitter end. Very refreshing and a beer I will consume a lot this coming summer :-)

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 18, 2005
Off white head on a dark yellow colour. Feel vey fresh, on the bitter side. Malty and there is some citrus fruit there. Sour finish. Very drinkable on a warm day.

Floral hops and slightly bitter aftertaste. I prefer this to be poured on draft.
