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

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 (3404) - 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 (4005) - 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.

Den inleder fint med en härlig och fruktig arom, smaken följer upp aromen på ett behagligt sätt med mycket fruktiget och beska. Slutsats: en bra öl!

Ja det är bäst man skriver något annars får man skit av Stefan ;) humlig och lite beska. Tyckte det inte var något speciellt drag i denna.

Nice white frothy head. Clear very light amber, looks a bit watery. Smells of lime and a hint of sweetness. Reminds me of summer and a shrimp sandwich:) taste is sweeter than the smell, but is well balanced with the lime appearing in the aftertaste. A well balanced and drinkable beer, hope the APA and IPA can match this :) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
