Cunningham (7049) - Halden, NORWAY - OCT 16, 2016
Hazed deep golden color with a fine white head. Good lacing. Ok intensity in the aroma. Decent medium body and an average carbonation level. Tad sweet and an ok bitterness (could have been higher to back it up better). Citric, tropical - some dried fruits, pine and caramel malty flavor.

Aroma: piney, earthy, complex hop aroma Appearance: very clear and nice medium amber color, very big head served from draft Palate: clean, medium low body Taste: very tasty, very nice pale ale, complex hop aroma flavor, easy drinking yet very pleasant pale ale. Because the complex hop aroma, somehow is like a session IPA
