There really is a reason that this beer is in every bar. It’s classic. Nice hope with the malt calming down the hops just a little.. smooth and medium through out.. always a good choice. When you find yourself at a bar with a small beer collection.

lmastr (51) - Norma, ITALY - MAY 31, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2015 35cl bottle. A landmark, really. A great floreal aroma, into a fresh but thick taste with some citrus and some resin. Some malty bready sweetness, not that much bitterness. Good from the first to the last sip.

minutemat (2266) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2015
330ml bottle. Pours amber, white head. Rather bland with muted citrus and very vague floral hints. Quite surprising how this tastes of almost nothing at all. Bad / old batch?

JaTuJa (16) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAY 30, 2015
Oluen pinnalle kohti taivasta kurkottaa n. Sormen paksuinen, tasainen vaahto, joka laskee nopeasti, jääden ohueksi kerrokseksi oluen päälle. Tuoksu on APA:lle ominainen sekoitus sitrusta, greippiä, hedelmää ja aavistus mallasta. Kokonaisuutena tuoksu on mukavan raikastava. Suutuntuma on keskitäyteläinen ja pehmeän hiilihappoinen sekä raikastava ja puhdas. Maultaan pitkälti tuoksun kaltainen, humalan aromeja tasapainottamassa on kuitenkin jonkun verran karamellimaista maltaisuutta. Jälkimaku on kuivahko, sekä tasapainoisen katkeroinen. Tyylipuhdas APA, eli helposti juotava, raikastava, tasapainoinen olut. Sopii hyvin lämpimään kesäiltaan joko yksin tai hyvässä porukassa nautittavaksi. Pakko vielä nostaa esille, että jostain syystä APA tuntuu kaikesta yksinkertaisuudestaan huolimatta olevan niin vaikea olut tehdä, mutta tässä on siitä erittäin onnistunut versio :)

Wischylini (163) - Grimstad, NORWAY - MAY 25, 2015
Pours golden clear with a small white head. The aromas are pine, resin and hops, and the taste is moderately sweet. Light mouthfeel, medium effervescent.

johnnnniee (2782) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 24, 2015
Bottle enjoyed at my parents house, great bbq beer. Golden amber color, moderate citrus hops with a bready caramel maltiness to back it up. Great brew, and I’m a bit surprised I haven’t rated this before.

cattaneopapa (224) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2015
355ml bottle from LCBO. 5.6% Alc./Vol. Pours a clear deep amber colour with a small white head which dissipates quickly. Floral aroma on the nose with notes of grapefruit and caramel. Taste is quite refreshing thanks to the citrusy cascade hops which leads to a spicy finish. Moderate carbonation. Im not a big Pale Ale fan but this one is the best Pale Ale I’ve ever tasted.

Jultsu (255) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - MAY 23, 2015
Astetta tummemman lagerin värinen, niukka vaahto. Tuoksussa ei oikein mitään. Kuivahko, katkerahko suutuntuma, samettisen vaahtoava, kirpeähkö. Ihan ok.

Brew_Cat (14) - Athens, GREECE - MAY 22, 2015
Bottle @ Pulp Pub, May 3rd, 2015. Average lasting off-white head, full body, clear amber color, very good lacing. Excellent combination of aromas and flavors, caramel, straw, flowery fragrance, notes of green apple, caramel, hints of butterscotch, bittersweet finish. Significantly balanced, with strong character, very refreshing. Top class example in its category!
