COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An innovative and fresh session ale in the American style, brewed with the modern hop variety Citra. Pale Ale is a shining amber example of Jessica Heidrich’s signature "Love and Hops" - easy to drink and rich with plenty of hop aromas and character. Aroma and taste - Large aroma and citrusy scent from the Citra hops with hints of elderflower, gooseberry and rhubarb reminiscent of a Sauvignon Blanc wine. Well-balanced and complex taste with distinct citrus floral bitterness. Long, fresh and aromatic bitter finish. Ingredients: Pale ale malt and Citra hops

WeissGary (285) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUN 1, 2013
Bottle from Valhalla’s Goat, Glasgow, Scotland. Quite a light, peaty, and sour pale ale; lightly clouded body, grassy aroma, quite bitter with a grapefruity and dry taste. One of my first Swedish beers, not bad.

BitchPls (492) - FINLAND - APR 19, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2014 Pretty regular beer aroma. Slightly hazy yellow colour. Small white head. Actually well hopped. Little too stinging hops for my taste but still very good. Soapy, grassy. EDIT: 4/6/2014 increased taste from 7 to 8 and overall points from 12 to 13

En helt okej pale ale men något tunn i smaken och med en stickig efterbeska.

jesperhammer (2815) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2013
16-MAR-2013, bottle @home, shared with Morten, from Systembolaget, brought home by Marianne. Light golden with low white head. Bitter hoppy with hints of fruit. Lager-like bitterness. Fresh is the positive word. Thine body makes the carbonation more rough. Not really an APA. Not match for the American examples of the type. Boring.

Pyrmir (3198) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 30, 2013
330 ml bottle. Aroma flowery hops with some grain. Taste is fairly neutral on the malt side, flowery hops gives a nice balance to it. Pretty thin body. Medium-high bitterness.
