COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Benämningen Pale Ale kännetecknar en ljusare typ av Ale som bryggs på ljusare malt. En ölsort med karaktäristisk humle som har fruktiga toner och en markerad beska. Namnet härrör från en Bulldog som hette Krut. Med sina dryga 40 kilo muskler, ingav Krut välförtjänt respekt. Han var en sann glädjespridare precis som denna öl.

Doft
Komplex malt- och humlearomatisk doft med tydlig exotisk fruktighet.

Smak
Markerad beska med härligt maltrostade toner och lång fruktig eftersmak.

Aroma: Very much american hops in the smell, grape, pine needles, a bit of green soap.
Appearance: Rather dark yellow color, a slightly off-white head, that leaves lot’s of lacing.
Taste: A small dark sugar sweetness, mostly acidity, lime and grape, the bitterness is grape peel and a alkaline metallic presence.
Palate: Medium carbonation, small bubbles, a bit coarse.
Overall: A bit unbalanced, the bitterness was not really pleasant.
Note: Bottle. Reviewed 2010-05-12.

Eructoblaster (2956) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 27, 2013
On tap at The Liffey (Stockholm). Nice amber body with a thick off-white foamy head. Well balanced malty/hoppy taste with bready hints. Taste is slightly dominated by hoppy flavors. It carries grainy and woody notes. Ends with a decent bitter finish. Enjoyable.

On tap at the hotel bar, Hotel Reisen, Stockholm. Clear amber beer, little white head. Palate is minerally crisp. I had a bit of a double IPA fest at the Ardberg embassy and thus is tasting a little fresh air. Very light malts, light caramel note. Mellow citric hops. Crisp finish. The dominant flavour is minerals! But not too bad!

Keg (Leijuva Lahna, Helsinki)
Super sweet fruity aroma, everything from mango and peach to a bit of lychee and strawberry. Bright orange, keggy off-white head. Fairly simple body, not as bold as the aroma hinted. But clearly a hoppy modern pale ale. Malts sweet and caramelly, aromatic hops a ramped down version of the aroma. Bittering hops heighten the tingle from the carbonatio, and fortunately build up to give this more complexity. Finish has almost toffee-like sweetness, but the bitterness is nice and dry, herbal, and a little bit undergrowthy. Designed to do one job, but doing it rather well. Good one, if it wasn’t for the fizziness, I could session this.

NordicV (1095) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - APR 2, 2013
Bärnstensfärgad öl med smutsvitt skum. Doft av fruktighet och viss maltsötma. Smaken är karamellsötma, malt och en balanserad beska.
