Bottle. Perfect color... deep amber. Great aroma. Great hop aroma and taste. Citrus overtones. Balanced. Perhaps the only thing that would make this beer better is if it was a draft.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pretty nice. Copper orange pour. Aroma is light hoppy with a little grain. Taste is trying to be an ipa. Just a bite underwhelming. Too light. Not enough citrus or pine.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. Beautiful amber color with a small white head. Nose is hay, with a light and sweet hint of caramel, almost toffeelike. Mouth is medium body, medium bitter with a quite long finish. A Great ale for warm summerdays!

BEER REVIEW #100 !This was included in the SN Fall sampler 2014. An original classic and one I feel proud to have as my "official" 100th review. Wonderful gateway brew. Perfect balance of subdued hops with subtle malt backing. Rarely drink pale ales as I'd rather have an IPA 99.9% of the time over a pale but can appreciate a quality example of the style all the same.

Aroma of malt, some caramel, tropical fruit, pine, hops. Flavour is fruity and light malty, with a medium bitterness in the aftertaste. Very crisp and fresh hoppy brew.

Mooie oranje kleur met een volle kraag. Ruikt, beetje honing, hop en mout. Smaakt fris, fruitig, hop. Goede bittere nasmaak.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
After hundreds of craft brews, I realized I missed an original. This six-pack has dated bottles, and looks good! I notice a nice sediment layer in the bottle! Lots of smoke upon popping the bottle cap. An aggressive pour makes a nice, thick, two-finger, rocky, near-white head. It has a lot of particulates in it, I am guessing finishing hops particles. Smells floral, caramel, slightly astringent, west coast clean and bright. The taste is similar to the nose. Hop forward, a medium body, and a dry, clean finish. Big swallows are easy with this refreshing brew. It is one of the best Pale ales I have had. It seems more in the style than something like Dale’s, which is very hopped for a pale ale. I will be drinking many more of these in the future hopefully!

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours amber with a one finger off white head with pretty nice lacing. Aroma is of pine, citrus, biscuit malts, caramel, and some grassy hops. Taste is pine, citrus, bready malts, biscuit malts, grassy hops, caramel, and sweet malts. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi-moderately bitter, medium-long finish. Overall, a classic, well balanced APA that has always been one of my go to beer at bars and restaurants.
