Pours a clear bright yellow with a medium white head. Aroma has nice soft stonefruits and light grassy and pine notes. Flavor steps up the pine a bit...some spicy hop notes, soft and faintly bready pils malt backing but solid bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and silky and the finish is piney and dry. Bravo Jean!!

Growler from maxime. Thanks a ton for this tasty brew. Notes of clean fresh pine. Tangerine. Hint of resin. Juicy. No abrasive bitterness. Hop forward for sure with a pleasant toasted cracker orangepeel sweetness provides pleasant balance. Tight beer.

Growler at home with Aaron. Pour is golden yellow with a fluffy white head and great lacing. Grassy, weedy, grapefruity, light citrus, biscuity, straw, a touch of earth, and dough in the aroma. Taste is weedy, grassy, pungently juicy, tangy, biscuity, herbs, fruity, and light bread with a medium bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Really nice session pale ale and a real treat to try.

Growler at Kickbacks for RBWG welcome dinner Mostly clear yellow with a white head. Light citrus hop aroma. Dry, bitter. Decent for a pale ale.

On tap at the brewpub. Not surprised to see that this gets a 100% for style at the time of rating and before having looked at any Tired Hands ratings, it was easily my favorite of the seven small beers I tried. Aroma beams forth with good tropical hop resins, steady and sturdy. Flavors start with the ethereal light and fresh green hop qualities and then merge beautifully into a n almost nutty malt base. One of the more broadly complex Pale Ales I’ve had in awhile and I give it a lot of credit for being balanced, hop flavor delicious, and with malt nuance. It’s hard to pull that off. Yum.

Marsiblursi (3052) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 1, 2012
(Bottle) Pours clear pale golden with a creamy off-white head. The aroma holds boatloads of pine, black currant tea, melon bubblegum, kiwi, herbs, grass, litter box and flowers. Undertones of banana candy, Swedish snus and white bready malt. Clean and refreshing on the nose. The flavor is light sweet, medium bitter and tiny acidic with citrus, pine, fruits, grass, flowers, herbs, black currant and white bread. The mouthfeel is clean, soft, light astringent and light tart with a light to medium carbonation. Yummy, green hoppy aftertaste. Light to medium bodied.

At Dadtoberfest. The aroma is floral hops, citrus, caramel. The appearance was a gold/copper color, white head. The flavor was hop forward, citrus, flowers, caramel. Medium in body. Floral hops on the finish. Nice beer all around.

From a growler. Pours clear amber with a small head. The aroma is outstanding. Citrus and pine dominate with a bit of malt sweetness. The flavor has a bit of malt up front and the hops coming later. The finish is very dry.

Overall a very nice crisp and balanced pale ale. Nice juicy citrus and melon notes. A bit of grass and pine and not bitter in the least. Just really nice and drinkable.

Growler thanks to phillycraft. Very cloudy dull yellow pour with a nice 1 finger head that fades to a messy ring and leaves nice lacing. Great aroma of kiwi, pine, mandarin orange, and peaches. Tastes ultra smooth. A touch of sweetness and no bitterness. Big kiwi, nice amount of pine and peaches. Medium body. Very nice APA.
