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.

bartlebier (1558) - 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 (6066) - 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.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2013 Bottled@vPBFII (thanks Bov!). Golden colour, mediumsized creamy beige head. Aroma is caramel, some tartness, some mild fruits and mild grass. Flavour is quite sour and tart wood along with some malts and quite fruity and floral hops. 6 3 6 3 12

laiti (5572) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 26, 2013
50 cl bottle @ wPBF, BBE 06/2013
Aroma is soapy with some peaches, grainy notes and hay. Also hints of caramel. Flavour is sweetish with fruity notes, some caramel, biscuits and gooseberry bush. Too messy and yeasty. Also the tartness does not fit here.

danielecamo (403) - ITALY - MAR 8, 2013
Colore ambrato, schiuma bianca abb fine e persistente. Olfatto di frutta esotica, malto, non molto intenso. Aroma con malto, leggero caramello poi un amaro secco. Carbonazione alta. La luppolatura un pò esausta condiziona la bevuta. mancanza di freschezza e aromi classici da luppolo americano. Comunque godibile.

pivnizub (8750) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 22, 2012
Bottle (kindly donated by Quack-Duck!): Light amber coloured, hazy to cloudy, mid-sized "dirty" white head, herbal-hoppy nose with a distinctive bready-fruity background; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, nearly medium-bodied, quite soft; lingering piney-hoppy finish with a malty counterpart. Good....

On 50 cl bottle from Drinks of the World, Zurich. Dark golden color, good foam. Distinct, but integrated hoppy aromas (pine), some fruitiness and light citrus notes- caramel & vanilla notes. Medium body & complexity. Solid bitterness, well balanced. Very enjoyable
