Flaske: Orange meget let diset med e flot skumhoved. Behagelig duft af malt og humle. Meget frisk men også østkyst præget, minder mig om Main brewing. Lækker lille øl drukket i Yosemite.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Plumpjack Noe. Pale ale, just another beer, right? Sometimes you get a good one though. Perfect appearance, clear deep copper with lively bubbles, a lasting off-white head, and great lacing. Great balanced aroma with pine and grapefruit complementing floral notes and caramel. Dry flavor with big hops balancing out the caramel/bready base. Hoppy, fruity, floral flavor. Nice clean but resinous mouthfeel. Really excellent pale ale. Stands out within its style.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml bottle. Pours a copperish reddish orange with a small white head. Aroma has some very faint hop notes mostly floral. Flavor is mildly bitter with a bit of oxidation and a bit of diacetyl. Medium bodied, slightly below average carbonation. Finishes kind of butterscotchy and flowery. There’s potential here but they need to figure out the diacetyl/ oxidation problems.

Poured from the bottle. Nice head, nice copper colour. Aroma isn’t too hoppy. Some citrus and floral hops. Flavor is so mildly bitter. The body is thin, this is closer to a session pale ale. Very easy to drink but still tastey..
