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.

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!

Tap. Deep golden body with an average, off -white head. Aroma of orange, tangarine apricot and chocolate, notes. Sweet flavor that ends up dry. Mediuma bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A nice ale indeed.a

Lys gyllen farge. Dekkende skum, heng langs kant. Syrlig duft av citrus, høy og sitron. Fin smak av citrus og friske frukter med en god ettersmak.

First off, enormous thanks to Mario from Dva Tona (cvitko1) for hosting this huge, most generous and quality tasting. Shared with him, 1rice & Soki.

Clear golden body with a fine head. The aroma starts off promising immediately, citrus fruits & peach on the creamy malty backbone, light brown sugar notes, quite pleasant. The citric hoppiness owns the taste, with some vague peach kicking in here & there, the maltiness stays back and lets the hop rule, which was definitely a good decision. Medium grapeseed bitterness, vague fishy note at one point. A superb rendition of the style. Not, perhaps, Dark Star APA level. Are the English better at making APAs than Americans? Who knows... but they are definitely capable of making some kickass ones.

Metalchopz (2263) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 21, 2014
Single from the LCBO. Pours a light golden colour with an amber hue and not filtered to the max. White foamy head, decent retention and some lacing. Grainy malt with the citrus hops and mild pine needles. Expecting more of a punch from the taste, but no. Good dryness, but not much flavour. Very light hops, malts. More on the fizzy side, like a grapefruit club soda water drink. Maybe they forgot to add flavours to mine. I don’t know. Still decent overall.

DuffMan (6669) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 20, 2014
Bottle, shared with TylerDurden. Bright orange-gold, lively white head. Very fresh tropical fruit hop aroma with green leafy undertones. Lightly caramel malts, grapefruit, nettles, and a subtle licorice note that kept creeping in. Very drinkable, tasty brew.

MoritzF (8464) - Bochum, GERMANY - AUG 19, 2014
(bottle) Hazy, golden colour with a blond medium-sized foamy head. Citrus-fruity, slightly exotic hoppy aroma with herbal spots, accompanied by delicately bready (cara-)malt. Bitter-sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Rounded malty base with present fruity and slightly herbal-spicy hops; medium-dry bitter-sweet finish with spicy and mildly fruity hops. Balanced and moreish Ale. 11.VIII.14

Douberd (2218) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2014
(Thornbridge Chiron) 500 ml bottle at home, poured into a tulip glass, ABV 5% Mostly clear body, golden orange in colour, with a good sized white head, thick enough, with good retention too, leaving medium lacing on the glass. Nice citrus aroma, mandarins, very hoppy and inviting. Great taste, lots of hops, very fresh tasting and refreshing, citrus, mandarins, tropical fruits too. Medium body, very nicely carbonated, mildly dry palate. Very tasty beer, great thirst-quencher too.

probstblueribbon (2892) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2014
500 mL bottle from LCBO served cold in a tulip glass. Clear deep golden with a fluffy, off-white head. Tropical fruits, pine, grapefruit peel, restrained base malt support, juicy, nice. Medium body, very full carbonation. Tropical fruits, pine, citrus, biscuit malt, a touch thin; dry with reasonable bitterness and a long, juicy, expressive hop finish. Another lovely brew from this brewery!
