Plenty of British Crystal malt in the grist lends this ale its rich color, its caramel maltiness, and adds the occasional whiff of toffee to the nose. An addition of American and German hops to the kettle at the end of the boil is used to suffuse our Pale Ale with a gently spicy hop finish.

GoufCustom (1160) - HONG KONG - AUG 29, 2015

355 ml bottle bought at YATA in MOKO (Grand Century Place), Mong Kok.

Clear orange honey colour; One quarter finger head with soapy white foam which fades in 20 seconds; Good sticky lacing and slight carbonation; Fragrant aroma of Ale malt, with grapefruits, strong honey, floral, moderate pine, molasses, yeast, light lemon and thin grass; Medium sweet taste of full Ale malt, with strong toastyness, caramel, grapefruits, strong molasses, pine, moderate resins, strong spices, dry biscuits, strong yeast, lemon, fairly strong bitter hops and grass; Mid to light body. Slick palate; Mouth Feel is full Ale maltyness in a pretty non-elastic thick body. Very strong toasty taste with caramel undertone. Good grapefruits, fair pine and just right resins. Very dry, spicy and biscuity. Lemony hops to round. Very solid!... Hoppiness is grapefruits, strong honey, floral, moderate pine, light lemon and thin grass in nose; Citrus, light pine, resin, and strong spice in taste; Bitterness is strong for a lasting, high astringent sweet-bitter finish; Dry after taste. Fruity, sweet and bitter to mouth.

Comments: A solid, all-round APA with very good toasted malt aroma and taste, plus good grapefruits, fair amount of pine and ooze, lots of spices and good balance of sweetness and hoppiness. Wholesome and very sessionable, perfect for meals and football matches!

Clear golden with thin white head. Good legs. Floral and malty aroma. Taste gets malts, hops (not enough), some fruity and toffee sweetness and a dry bitter finish. Quaffable American pale ale.

Canette de 500ml. Bière blonde et légèrement trouble arborant une mousse blanche comme neige et généreuse. Cette dernière dessine de magnifiques dentelles collantes sur mon verre avant de disparaître malheureusement trop rapidement. Au nez, beaucoup de blé et de houblons. Les houblons sont à la fois agrumés et floraux. À la fois frais et subtil. En bouche, le liquide a beaucoup de corps. Un rien trop ample et riche pour ce type de bière à mon avis. Les saveurs rappellent encore le bon pain frais. J’eus aimé une présence plus affirmée des houblons qui sont ici éclipsés par le malt. Très effervescente en bouche (et dans l’estomac), cette bière se déguste parfaitement bien en ce bel après-midi d’été!

gnoff (8931) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JUL 9, 2015
On June 21, 2015. At Steamworks Brewpub, in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Only on as "Pale Ale", but guessing this is where to put it.
Hazy golden color, white head. Hoppy, green, floral, sweet taste. Medium to fizzy mouthfeel, low bitterness. Hoppy, fruity scent.
