COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our flagship pale ale. Completely authentic in style, bursting with fresh whole flower American hops and yeast. Immediately present and fragrant nose dominated by a spicy bouquet of toasted caramel, citrusy notes. Rich Copper in color, delivering that expected caramel palate, complemented by residual malty sweetness and lingering finish. Expect a world class Pale Ale.

kingvit (238) - - MAR 7, 2014
Aroma: proper ale, subtle, reminds me of Mandarina Bavaria hop. Appearance: beautiful golden orange color, little foam, way too much CO2 Taste: more English than American, with strong blonde/Starkbier aftertaste, tons of vanilla, not a session beer Palate: notes of sweet hoppy bitterness, yet more prominent is the bitterness from alcohol. Disappointment. Overall: should be repackaged as English Pale Ale / Blonde Ale, good for airports but not for craft indulgence

Belle robe orangée, carbonation bien présente, col de mousse peu à pas persistant. Amertume peu prononcée à moyenne, le corps est moyen, astringence présente, les malts caramels sont trés présents, trop à mon goût. Consommée le 06/10/13 en bouteille 50cl achetée en magasin.

TheJvd (912) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 7, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear orange/copper with a medium off-white head leaving nice lacing. Aroma is some caramel, bready and only very faint hops and tropical fruits. Taste is also caramel, some red fruit and a medium bitter finish. Thin to medium body and medium carbo. Lacks a bit of everything.

Golden amber color, small head. Smells clean with good flavor and light hoppy aftertaste. A good brew reminiscent if Samuel Adams Boston ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bartlebier (1872) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - MAY 18, 2013
50cl bottle courtesy of Allan, danke! - It’s toasted...Lucky Strike of a US amber ale with pleasant roasted caramel and piny hop notes, a dry mouthfeel, slight marred milky palate. Unusual aniseed notes showing up in the aftertaste rather than citrus.

lusikka (6425) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 26, 2013
500 ml bottle @ WPBF 2013.
Pours a hazy amber colour with a white head. Aroma of grassy hops, really strong and pungent gooseberries and nettles. Flavour of grassy hops, caramel malts, gooseberries, nettles and hay. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and hard carbonation. Finishes harsh, grainy and strong on berries. Somehow I find this to be more of an amber ale rather than an APA.
