American Pale Ale
Golden in colour Chiron offers a superb balance of tart hops, juicy malt and tangy fruit while the lingering finish offers a hint of apricots and tangerines before a biscuity malt and hoppy finish.

bartlebier (3401) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - SEP 16, 2016
500ml bb 12/2016. Bref: US-exotichopped bitter goes granulated peach ice tea. - The citric hop pellets almost grind between the teeth, giving off condensed hop oil doses to the point of granulated ice tea fruitiness (Tangerine, dried peach, sweet tea). Nevertheless pleasant candy drinking with a delicate malt base and plastic decadent edge. Hm.

AlainG (1965) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 15, 2016
Une blonde limpide recouverte d’un mince voile. Ça sent le houblon citrique, l’air salin, l’ozone; comme du linge gelé sur la corde en hiver. En bouche, il y a un côté plastifié volatile. Elle est courte, quand même goûteuse et ce, d’une façon peu orthodoxe. Il y a des saveurs de ketchup, brièvement, ensuite goûte les médicaments. Par moment, on a l’impression de manger de la neige, en forêt. Elle est bien difficile à saisir, c’est particulier et intéressant. (1862-300616)

Stoned99 (1237) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 9, 2016
500ml bottle from private import, condition for buying 3F Framboose. Best before 18.08.16. Aroma: strong biscuit malt, really really shy citrus combined with some spices. App: cloudy copper, minimal white head, little lacing. Taste and palate: medium body, quite malted: caramel, biscuit, soft to moderate carbonation, light dry bitter finish. Overall: pretty meh as expected. Well done but I guess this is meant for those liking a strong malted apa. Not your east coast apa. Probably not fresh. Won’t finish the bottle for sure.

berkshirejohn (5988) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2016
50cl bottle from Waitrose, Bracknell. A clear pale amber pour with a fast fading white head; tropical fruit aroma - apricot & pineapple; fruity mandarim taste; and a drier, tart fruity finish. Excellent.
