Idiosynkrasie (7839) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - OCT 3, 2017
355ml can. Clear, orangey golden colour with average to huge, frothy to creamy, moderately lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Grainy, strawy, minimally grassy hoppy aroma, a spicy touch of silage. Taste is slightly bready and minimally strawy, pale malty, mildly bitter and minimally grassy hoppy overtones. Quite earthy, lacks some fruitiness or any other refreshing quality. Meh. rollinsr (812) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - SEP 5, 2017
Pours a slightly hazy gold color with bountiful white head. Aroma is faint orange and yeast esters. Flavor is crisp with a little spice.

Bottle best before 9-07-17. Purchased from Double Shoppe. This is light copper in color with good head formation. Aroma is a little cardboardy with biscuits and grapefruit. The bitterness is in the middle of pale ales, maybe slightly on the lower side. Citrusy and grassy hop bite is on the palate with each sip. Light mouthfeel with a pretty crisp finish. Cereal flavors comprise the malt body without any strong specialty malt influenece. A lingering grassy, papery hoppiness sticks around. FatPhil (16896) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 6, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2017 355ml bottle - pre-HBF2017 hotel bash - thanks VastActiv! (6:3:6:3:11=2.9)ronaldtheriot (1978) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - JUL 18, 2017
Sweet fruity malts in the aroma, spicy and cakey. Pale and cloudy. Sweet malty body, full and smooth and a bit slimy. Sweet malty taste. Harsh bitterness in the finish. Roughish pale ale.
Naked Pig has a thick, spongy, slightly off-white head, a mostly clear, orange appearance, with a bit of glass lacing globs. Aroma is faint, but white bread and citrus can be detected, with a strong inhalation. Taste is of mellow bitterness, citrus (tangerine?), white bread, white bread crust, and mild caramel. Mouthfeel is high medium, and Naked Pig finishes medium dry. Similar to Audible Ale, in flavor, but with a more robust alcohol aspect. RJT
