(bottle, 35.5cl) Clear, deep golden to amber colour with a medium-sized and slightly off-white foamy head. Cara-malty and delicately bready aroma with mildly herbal and grapefruity hops. Slightly sweet and bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Dry cara-malt character with fruity and herbal, also a bit floral hops, leading into a dry and mildly bitter finish. Easy-going, but unspectacular Ale. 29.VI.13
03-06-2017; bottle; at home (bought somewhere in Germany).
The looks of the beer are nice and quite typical for a pale ale. The beer has a nice golden orange, quite a deep color. The beer has some haziness, but it is not entirely unclear. On top of the beer a nice layer of soft, rather rough white foam is formed. Foam retention is average. Not bad.
The smell of the beer isn’t that strong. It is typically that of an American Pale Ale though. Clear robust maltiness upfront, followed by some clear American hops. The hops give some nice resinous and piney aromas, with a tiny citrus hint. Not bad, not not extremely special neither. Just a good APA.
The taste is comparable. Nice malty sweetness at first, together with lovely bitter and slightly acidic hops, with mainly pine and resin touches. Not bad. It is a robust APA, like it should be. The bitterness seems a tiny bit to strong though, bringing it slightly out of balance. And it misses a bit of a special touch. A bit plain this way.
The palate of the beer is nice. Medium body, rather smooth and a nice medium carbonation. The finish is nice and contains some lovely bitter American hops. All in all, a nice beer but it misses some depth. cglans (213) - - JUN 2, 2017

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2017 Pours a dark amber color. Aroma is filed with grass coriander mint sage. Has a solid malt profile with a hoppy finish. A very good american pale. imdownthepub (14459) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2017
Bottled, 330ml from The Wine Rack at Yarnton Nurseries, Yarnton, Oxon. Gold to amber with white head. There is a pleasant, fresh crispness to this from the start, leafy, autumnal hop notes, some fruitiness, biscuity malts. Reasonable depth. It’s fine.

Láhev 355 ml. Aroma je velmi příjemně čerstvě chmelové, připomínající svěží pomerančový dort. Pěna je bílá, jemná, vysoká a držící. Barva samotného piva je sytě zlatá. Chuť je příjemně sladová s lehkým nádechem pomerančového sirupu a čerstvého chmele, finiš je výraznější, suše hořký a držící. V ústech pivo působí plně, má střední říz a je dobře pitelné. Jedná se o velmi chutný pale, který opravdu nezklame. Moolesen (536) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 6, 2016
Bottle 33cl. Amber with a beige head. Pils aroma, with some extra hoppy tones. I would describe this as an extra hopped pils style. Nice taste which compliments the aroma. Rather short finish. Fin (10473) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2016
