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

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

Bottle from the Systembolaget Hansacompagniet, Malmo. Poured a crystal clear straw colour with a thin broken white head. The aroma is malt, medicinal resin hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a light watery resin herbal veggie palate. Light bodied with average carbonation. A big "thumbs down" from the Netherlands Jury!

33cl bottle from Systembolaget, Strömstad. Pours slightly hazy pale golden with a white head. Mild malty aroma with not so fresh hoppy notes with citrus, hints of tropical fruits and some floral notes. Moderate sweet with mild fruity flavours and a moderate bitterness. A bit disappointing and nothing I would buy again, but still quite drinkable.

33 cl systembolaget. En av mina första svenska öl som smakade lite mer än trötta lager. Jag gillar verkligen denna

Bottle. Pale golden color, white head. Malty aroma with a hint of hops. Fairly dry, malty flavor with some vegetables and hops. Lingering, bitter finish with sweet malts. Light body, medium carbonation. It has some depth, but maybe not my favorite pilsner.

Tasty but at the same time a little mawkish. Lacks character. Extremely easy to drink.

Holmen1 (3123) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUL 3, 2014
Flaske fra Systembolaget Lund juli-14: filtrert gylden med meget kort skum. Deilig aroma av citrus og stikkelsbær. Innledningsvis frisk og god slak med nevnte, men den blir fort flat og uinteressant. Overhode ikke "innovative" slik bryggeriet selv påstår, "bland" er mer beskrivende synes jeg.

Nummenrannassa. Quite enjoyable beer, maybe not as refreshing as I hoped. Still good.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2015 Straight forward nice malt body, dry and nice, some refreshing bitterness, but not a lot of late hop additions. I understand the point of the beer is a nice drinkable Pale Ale, and I was looking for a more towards session IPA, this obviously wouldn’t please the general crowd, but this isn’t bad.
