Zekada (381) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - NOV 20, 2014
Bottle from Beermerchants.com. Not much of a aroma and a rather damp feeling about it. Pours dark orange with a small white head. Taste is sweet and a bit fresh with some hops, though not overwhelming. Palate is actually pretty nice and it passes through the mouth smoothly. Overall not a very exciting beer and not very tasteful.

imdownthepub (11197) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2014
Bottled, 330ml from Utobeer, Borough Market, London. Hazy orange amber with white head. There is an initial fruity sweetness, slight bon-bon hints followed by a herby hoppy note. Allied to this is a citrus, orange hint. Perhaps a little mixed up but pretty reasonable too.

Cask conditioned at The Euston Tap, Euston, London. Hazy gold with white head. Big hop flavours going on with this, grapefruit bitterness with lemon pith and sharp gooseberry, full on the palate and very tasty. Lots of carry through, drying. Very good.

Semiclear orange with a bone white head. Nose has bread and red fruit, very wine-like. Sour and earthy with some grapefruit. Surprisingly sour for a pale ale.

Hopmaestro (405) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2014
Aroma of pineapples, oranges and sweet caramels. The taste is really fruity and I catch a lot of pineapple/mango, but it is a little thin in the aftertaste.

yngwie (14923) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 26, 2014
Bottle, at John Bull, Aalborg. It’s an unclear one, orange in color and with a white head. The aroma is citrusy and piney, rather gentle, with some malts in the back. Nice bitterness in the flavor, it’s citrusy and lightly piney, some malts in the back. It’s soft on the palate, with a soft carbonation. Lasting dry and bitter finish with citrus zest. A decent one, but far from the typical US west coast pale ale. 141026

ElDesmadre (2149) - Mikołów, POLAND - OCT 23, 2014
Bottle. Light yet not watery, with a lean and soft malty body, a strong yet not over the top bitterness, and a crisp flavour full of citrus, mandarine, orange and lighter notes of melon and lychee. Fantastic, minty finish that cools the throat. Excellent!
