COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg& bottles, regular.Dry hopped for extra aroma, this pale ale has a light malt base with just the right mouthfeel to allow the hop character to predominate. Grapefruit like bitterness is full and lasting and is balanced by a zesty citrus burst of aroma from two late additions of cascade hops.

UXO (1888) - CANADA - MAR 17, 2017
Appearance: clear pale gold with two fingers of rocky white head, good retention and moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: biscuit and caramel malt, floral and grassy hops, hint of citrus. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (6/10) Palate: medium body, moderate-low carbonation, off-dry mildly bitter finish. (3/5) An Irish implementation of an American version of an English ale intended for Indian consumption - how many ocean crossings is that? I’m’a go with, at least one too many. That’s not to say it’s terrible, or anything - but it’s not really all that impressive, either. It claims to be dry-hopped with Cascade, but it still comes across as dominated by caramel malt and grassy noble hops. OK, but not exactly impressive. On the up side, I get to break my string of 7/10 ratings at six. Sláinte mhaith! (13/20)

Amertume et notes de citron, bien pour l’été, moins lourd, ça change des bitters anglaises. Sans gros plus.

19Oracolo78 (182) - ITALY - MAR 5, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2017 Birra dal colore giallo ambra. Schiuma bianca moderatamente persistente. All?olfatto sentori floreali e fruttati. Al palato corpo leggero note di agrumi, pompelmo e zagara chiudendo con un accenno di caramello. Nel finale rimane amara ed aromatica da luppolo. Una birra non proprio di carattere ma che si lascia bere con facilità.

Nothing out of the ordinary, fairly bland all the way. No great aroma or bitterness, inoffensive.
