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

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

Bottled. Pours clear golden in color with a whitish head. Earthy and notes of orange peel in aroma, feels like a tropical damp cellar somehow. Hints of citrusy notes and light malty tones in taste. Light bitterness and mild soapy notes in aftertaste.

yngwie (12722) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 18, 2014
Bottle. A clear, pale golden beer with a small, white head. The aroma is a tad too much on the wort-side, with some lemon and grass. Rather worty flavor too, with pale malts, light bread and some lemon and grass. Citrus peel and a nice bitterness level too. Medium to thin on the palate, with a nice carbonation level. Short finish. Way to weak and boring this one. 140418

TET (1441) - FINLAND - APR 15, 2014
A golden beer with a weak and blond head. The nose is quite nice and slightly aromatic, fruits, grass and some grain field. Taste of grain, some grass, also citrusfruits, almost medium bitterness. The end is herbal and bitter. Quite light bodied, not bothering, quite fresh. In principle, aromatic and interesting but still something is missing, slightly confusing beer.

fantti (634) - FINLAND - APR 15, 2014
Kaatuu lasiin kullankeltaisena ja kirkkaana, vaahto on niukahko ja kevyttä pitsiä jättävä. Hajussa on hienosti greippiä ja trooppisempaa hedelmää, lievemmän ruohoisuuden ja keitetyn vihanneksen siivittämänä. Maussa jatkuu vahva sitruksisuus, mutta nyt rungon ohuus tuntuu vielä selvemmin ja vihannekset ovat esillä. Hiven makeampaa otettakin löytyy jälkimaussa. Suutuntuma on suht katkera, mutta samalla hieman ohut. Pysyy hädin tuskin keskitäyteläisen puolella. Ihan ok APA, mutta rungon keveys haittaa nautintoa.

Beerheart65 (895) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 11, 2014
Straw yellow, slightly hazy, one finger frothy white head. Medium strong aroma has grapefruit, bit black berries, mango, sweet and fruity. Light body, surprisingly malty, round feel but bit watery, medium soft carbonation, finish is bitter and medium long, bitter and dry but sweet aroma balances. Ok, easy to drink session ale.
