Lovely amber colour, with a good head. You can smell those citrus hops straight out of the bottle, but the aroma fades a bit after the pour. Medium body, with citrus hops, I’m mainly getting grapefruit on the middle and finish. Carbonation pretty much spot on for me. A very good beer, very tasty, but I couldn’t drink more than one or two at a time.

Rinfrescante American Pale Ale. Dal colore ambrato chiaro, limpido. Schiuma lievemente giallognolo crema, abbastanza fitta, abbondante e persistente. L’aroma non è fortissimo: si avverte soprattutto del netto luppolato e dell’erbaceo. Anche il gusto tende al luppolato, ai frutti tropicali e soprattutto all’erbaceo (si avvertono molto sentori di paglia). Amaro inizialmente non accentuato, ma si avverte soprattutto nel lungo e persistente retrogusto, soprattutto nella parte posteriore e laterale della lingua e nel palato. Leggero acidulo e mieloso. Carbonizzazione media. Corpo tra leggero e medio. Bevibilissima e molto dissetante.

All over the place, all the time, what a staple. What a hoppy clean pale ale, readily available across the world... Props to SN. Pours orange amber, white head. Aroma of pine, bread, citrus. Flavor is light sweet, malty, and hop finish. Straight down the fairway, crisp, fresh, clean.

MarkoNm (535) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - SEP 9, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy orangey color topped with average white frothy head. A mild citrusy aroma with some biscuity notes. Pleasant hoppy bitterness in the body, with a bit more bitterness in the finish.
