Aroma is light, malt, hops, pine and citrus. Appearance is a beautiful amber, white head. Taste is hoppy and balanced, a bitter pine, decent malt presence, not so light. Mouthfeel is good, decently carbonated but thick enough to let you know where it stands. Overall, it’s easy to see why this beer is the inspiration for so many craft breweries, and the reason many people got into the scene. This beer deserves the praise and respect it gets, and is a clear go-to beer.

På flaske på The Elk i Fulham distriktet i London. Fikk det servert i plastglass mens flaska ble kasta av en uvitende bartender. God aroma med sitrus og gress. Dette følger i smaken sammen med et hint av smør. Lang ettersmak.

Ah yes. The first real craft beer I tried over 12 years ago. I can’t believe I have not reviewed it yet. Bottle poured into a pub glass. The beer pours a mostly clear orange gold with an inch or so of off white head that shrinks and leaves nice lacing. Aroma is fresh cut grass, pine, and some light bread/malty smells. First sip is immediately quenching. Juicy citrus fruit up front. Orange and lemon for sure, there is also pineapple and some more tropical flavors as it develops. There is a solid caramel malt in the back that mixes well with the hop additions. The palate segment of this beer is perfect. It’s quenching every sip, and sticks to your mouth without leaving any off flavors. It’s just a perfect, sessionable pale ale for any occasion. I can’t believe I keep overlooking it for new beers. It needs to make it’s way back into my rotation.

Color ambar, con espuma cremosa y un toque anaranjado en el aroma. Muy equilibrada entre lúpulo y malta. Perfecta!

How have I never rated this? From the bottle into a Sierra Nevada shaker glass. Medium amber color with a cream-colored head. Aroma of bready and caramel malt and floral hops. Flavor matches the aroma well with light sweetness and a nice hoppy finish. Medium bodied with mild astringent. A classic that’s always good and a common go to at restaurants

Una Pale ale dalla luppolatura americana, classico del suo stile, una birra purtroppo troppo blasonata, dalla quale ci si aspetta molto, ma che alla fine lascia con l’amaro in bocca (in tutti i sensi)... deludente e sopravvalutata.
