PKGD 10/27/12.Pretty fresh. Hazy pour with tiny suspended yeast bits,dullish gold.Frothy short head. Aroma is floral, a stronger spice,grainy with a citrus tone like a little orange maybe slight lemon. Yeast breadiness. Taste is a light carmel with sweet bread and a spicey citrus floral hop flavor and sort of piney/grapefruit? but grassybittering. Pretty grassy in overall taste also. Dry bitter finish. LIngering grapefruit bitter.

Draft. Pours nice amber. The palate is full and the taste is a miss. There’s floral and a little citrus. Below average.

Almost clear golden color with white head. Aroma has a clean malt profile, like pilsener malt, ripe oranges and tangerines and a slight dank hop note. Taste starts with the same citrus fruits but is immediately followed by grapefruit pith bitterness. Aftertaste lingers with earthy hops. Medium body and carbonation, quite smooth on the palate. Overall it’s a well made, classic pale ale.

Fules (1393) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - SEP 13, 2016
Közepes, rendkívül tartós hab, borostyán szín, szűretlen. Illata gabonás, enyhén fűszeres, pici citrussal. Íze gabonás, gyümölcsös, citrusos, némi gyanta. Kissé fanyar, száraz, közepesen testes, frissítő sör, közepes szénsavtartalommal és keserűvel. Finom, visszafogott APA.

PanMarek (464) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 26, 2016
Pours straw yellow with moderate beige foam and some lacing. Malts dominate the nose with pale and cereal strongest. The hops tend toward grassy. The hops come out stronger on the tongue and more citrusy. Medium body and light fizz, slightly watery texture.

Flaska från Mikkellers webshop. Smak och doft av humle, malt, citrus, gräs, grapefrukt med toner av gräs och örter. Bra maltsötma, fruktig, bra balans och fin beska.
