Dark yellow,honeylike colour with a medium white head. Nose is neutral. I poured it into a plastic glass (had nothing better, other option was the bottle.) Taste is low bitterness. No hoppyness nothing. Huge disapointment.

Originally rated on 9/22/08. The first time or two i had this i thought i was rather average, however after repeated tastings this beer seems to get a little better each time, or maybe i just appreciate it more. Pale ales arent my favorite style but this is a pretty good beer. It is a nicely balanced, flavorful beer with floral hops dominating the aroma and flavor. Smooth and refreshing its is one of my favorite pale ales.

Bottle. Pours in clear pale body with medium white head. Aroma has light citrusy aroma, earthy background. Taste has medium citrus bitterness with medium malty sweetness. Very refreshing and well balanced. Body is full with high carbonation.

I guess it’s all been said before, but a nice pale amber beer with a sharp hop presence. Decent.

Metí la nariz en el vaso un par de veces, pero aún no soy muy ducho en esto de captar olores y transmitir a los demás lo captado. Con que me huela agradable, de momento es suficiente. Tiene buena apariencia (tú miras el vaso y dan ganas de beber, lo cual es más que suficiente), aunque he de decir que no está filtrada y se ven trocitos flotantes de, imagino, levadura. A mí tal cosa no me importa lo más mínimo, pero la destaco por si alguna persona es tiquismiquis con este tipo de detalles. No sé cuántos IBUS posee, ya que las dos botellas que he bebido no lo especifican, pero por el poco amargor diría que entre 30 y 45 como mucho. Pueden llamarla Pale Ale; para mí es una IPA. O, si soy completamente sincero, una Pale Ale IPAizada. Como he dicho, el amargor es suave (para un paladar medianamente acostumbrado a las IPA), pero necesario. Creo que fría se degusta mucho que mejor que tibia o ligeramente caliente. Se captan más detalles y la sensación es más placentera. Aunque, he de decir, una birra de estas cualidades la bebería sin ningún tipo de problema en cualquier momento. Totalmente recomendable, aunque si buscáis una gama de matices amplia en el paladar, no creo que la vayáis a encontrar.

355ml bottle, served in snifter glass. Poured hazy golden amber with a two finger off white head. Aroma: Grapefruit, citrus, freshly cut grass, flowers. Taste: grapefruit, citrus, pineapple, bread, spice, malty sweetness. Light to medium carbonation. Medium to high bitterness. Medium body with a bittersweet and dry finish. Very, very good!

I love this. Can buy local for a good price, and it has such a nice flavor, look, nothing I don’t like. I have tried other more expensive beer and this is still one of my favorites.
