Sessioned as the beer of the night during the McKenna St. Cessario party 2012. A decent pale ale by this brewer and well described commercially.

Tap. Soft malty fruity nose. Smooth, quite viscous body. Has an enamouring quality, if a tad cloying as it warms.

One of the better staple pale ales provided by the larger microbreweries. On par with Boulevard and Full Sail. Grapefruit Grapefruit Grapefruit. A bit of pine as well. Sweet with a nice bitter zing. Delish.

Great beer. It pours yellow with a thin head. There seems to be some chill haze. The aroma has slight grapefruit with some orange, a hint of pine and maltiness. Very nice and balanced. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, and medium carbonation. The flavor is malty with citrus and mild pine/grass. The bitterness is nicely balances with the malt. Overall one of the best APAs I’ve had. It’s not over the top like West Coast pale ales, but not boring like some from the East Coast. Awesome.

Bottled. Golden colour with a mediumsized white head. Aroma is fruity, floral, some mild sweet malts as well as some citrusy notes. Flavour is caramel malts, some crystal malty notes as well as some citrusy and floral hoppyness. Pleasantly balanced and actually very refreshing.

Odense Catching Up on Stuff Left in the Cellar Event July 2012. Golden with a small white head. Citrus hoppy aroma with grainy and bready malt. Sweetish malty flavour with fruity hops.

laiti (4944) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 28, 2012
33 cl bottle @ Olutravintola Konttori. Rated on 20.11.2010
Aroma feels exactly like the grain bin at my grandma’s old house. It has hay, grain and some fruity hops. Flavour is somewhat hoppy with fruits, caramel and some bready malt. Good.

Koelschtrinker (9996) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 27, 2012
Weicher, deutlich süßer Hopfenbeginn. Süffig, die Hopfigkeit sinkt etwas, bleibt dann aber konstant, dabei harzig und etwas grasig. Weiche Malznoten, hell, zum Ende steigt die Bitterkeit der Hopfigkeit zu Lasten der Süße. Rundes, wunderbar hopfiges Pale Ale. 12/12/12/12/11/12

Idiosynkrasie (3235) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 26, 2012
355ml bottle ["2 varieties of hops & 2 types of malt">. Clear golden colour with average to huge firm frothy white head. Slightly grainy aroma with a floral hoppy touch. Monotonous slightly sweet malty taste with a touch of fruit and hints of floral hop. "Agressively hopped"? Can’t find this. Wrong label? New recipe? Contrary to any expectations.

6/8/12- Pours a murky straw color with a white 1f head. Aromas of clean floral and light grapefruit hops. Maybe some spicy malt on the back end. Starts light and creamy before a spike of carbonation shows up with grapefruit hops. I almost get spicy sweet malts on the drying linger. Overall a sweet citrusy pale ale that is bordering on a hoppy wheat. Very refreshing and I'll keep this around for summer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
