UPDATED: OCT 23, 2018 Õlle on selline jook, et iga uus kord kui klaasi või pudeli suule tõstad, siis leiad midagi uut, sõltuvalt tuhandest-miljonist pisiasjast, mis hetke olukorda mõjutavad. Seega piirdun iga õlle juures selle tekstiga.

pours slightly hazy amber orange colour, topped with medium sized offwhite head, slowly settling. Medium biscuity malty aroma, some honey and some peachy notes. Mildly bittery, medium malty sweet and lasting herbal aftertaste.

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2018 Never one to care for the word "organic", I taste a bitter for taste. This one is almost sweet tasting on the palate: "maltish". Could use a touch more hops. Pretty light on the finish "aftertaste". Overall, I would rate it a five for total experience. It's a good ale. If you are a hard core vegan; it'll go well with a hearty salad. I'm not a vegan; it makes a burger a meal. A Cobb salad a craving. Pizza a pleasure. And alone: it inspires me to have another! I'll be walking home this evening!

Bitterbill (2537) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 26, 2017
From Sep 2007 Purchased at Bi-Rite in Casper for US$3.29 It pours from 550ml bottle a clear gold with a nice thick head of foam that shrinks *very* slowly and ends up as a fine solid layer with good lacing. The second pour gives me a hazy brew and that's fine by me. The smell is a mix of malt sweetness and hop citrus that is light on the nose. The taste has a very good malt flavour up front with some caramel, some bread, a touch of fruit, and some roasted malt.The hops throw in some good citrus notes that help balance the malt and the end result is a very nice, flavourful and very drinkable Pale Ale. The finish is bitter but nice, the mouthfeel is spot on for the style and the carbo is light. Very good stuff!

Clear, dark yellow with moderate, beige foam. Toffee hops dominate the nose with grassy hops and a little spice. Medium body, light fizz, slightly watery but with a dry finish.

rjplumer (1390) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 5, 2015
Has a butter toffee like aroma. Soft hazy cinnamon colored body. Just a light pencil line thick head. The butter toffee carries over on the taste too. Has slippery mouth feeling. Fairly clean finish and goes down smooth. A fairly simple but respectable brew.

High drinkability, decent taste, not great alone, but pretty good with food. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

obguthr (8254) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - FEB 14, 2015
Buttery honey, tart lemon, butterscotch nose. Hazy amber, thick head. Honey and butterscotch. Lemongrass finish. Medium body, smooth, soft carbonation. Sweet with a slightly bitter end. Rich and malty but with a bit of diacetyl.

Nice smooth pale ale. Not too bitter, smooth mouth feel. Copper color. Banana scent and taste, some spice notes.

Erzengel (11350) - Saarland, GERMANY - JAN 3, 2015
* Old rating from 2010. Mild-weiches, leicht malziges Bier. Sehr mild, fruchtig, lecker!
