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.

AshtonMcCobb (2544) - Edinburgh, - JAN 27, 2013
Rating 1300. 50cl bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours a dark golden colour with a nice lacy head. The nose has pine and grapefruit. There’s more grapefruit and grapefruit pith on the taste. The palate is light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long clean refreshing finish. Overall, I think I could drink this all afternoon!

Clear amber golden colour, firm white head. Aroma of hops, rather fruity, apricot, malts and straw. Sweet malty flavour, hops, light bitter. Malty finish, bit sweet, light tea biscuit. Nice!

ogivlado (5716) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 15, 2014
Bottled 500ml. -from Vrutak Zagreb. Golden coloured, small white to off-white head, pleasant citrusy hoppy nose. Moderate malty, citrusy and flowery hoppy with mild bitter grapefruity finish. Dry also finish. Nice one but not the best value for the money I’ve paid (almost 5€).

Strangebrewer (858) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2014
bottle. Poured slightly hazy amber with a big fluffy off-white head. Aroma loaded with hops, citrus and pine notes. Medium body,creamy carbonation, almost buttery mouthfeel. Flavour of bready malt paired with refreshing herbal hops. Finishes with tangy citrus and a slightly metallic dryness.

Quack-Duck (7911) - Down South, GERMANY - SEP 13, 2014
bottle from Darts Farm Topsham. Lovely hop aroma, as expected. Malty base supports the intensive hops well. Gossberry and citrus fruit and a touch of lemongrass. Delicious.

lesifflebiere (1270) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 9, 2014
Jaune dorée, avec une carbonatation assez importante, mais qui résulte pourtant en peu de mousse. Limpide et mince. Le nez est houblonné de façon assez classique, avec des houblons rappelant des notes tropicales (ananas, mangues). En bouche, l’amertume est retenue mais présente, les malts sont dans les fruits jaunes (abricots) et un peu caramélisés. Bref, on est dans le connu, mais la réalisation est excellente, complète, sans anicroche. Une anglaise qui brille parmi les pale ales du nouveau monde.

robinvboyer (3107) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2014
Cloudy gold pour, medium white head. Citrucy aroma, biscuity malts. Flowery, floral citrus finish. Medium to low bitterness. A superb drinking apa, not over the top, just enough hops to keep you coming back.

jsburbidge (3) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 6, 2014 does not count
Bottle from the LCBO. Pours clear gold with a couple of fingers’ of white head. Hints of citrus and grass with a medium body. Hops linger on the palate. Well-integrated. Not my favourite type of beer but I’d buy this again.

Skinnyviking (7062) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2014
