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.

darioklc (760) - Karlovac, - MAR 6, 2013
Clean barley taste with a bit of cream on the open and a clean bittered finish. Avoids being overbittered. Built very simply, but balanced well. As coarse as the style can be without taking a turn for the worse. Very carefully constructed. Buttery, actually.

MartyW (275) - DENMARK - JUN 12, 2017
Bottle bought in Rome. Yellow/orange with an off-white head. Very earthy, hoppy aroma with light flowery notes. Caramel malt and lots of dirty hops in the flavour. Quite a harsh beer. Not for me.

herrklemann (213) - Graz, AUSTRIA - JUN 11, 2017
Tap. Amber, slightly hazy, with a big white head. Grainy, toffee, with light fruits. Rather dry, medium bitterness. Creamy medium body, soft carbonation.
Alright, but a bit generic.

Banzale (288) - FRANCE - MAY 31, 2017
Acheter à carrefour wasequal (nord de france) Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur orange un peu gold en reflet , belle brillance ! Mousse qui laisse un col de mousse plutôt moyen . Au nez : note aqueuse je trouve , sensation céréales et houblon quelque note de fruit en grappes. En bouche : cest imparfait. Corps trop léger cest une lager suralimenté ! Note houblon traduit par de lamertume qui ne ce tiens pas ! Trop amère dun coup et pas de réel longueur. Note céréales en arrière bouche (malts ) On relève un peu de fruit en grappes mais très léger . Elle est désaltérante et meilleur quune pils mais cest pas la reine !

3.7
JaKeAFC (1121) - ITALY - MAY 11, 2017
50cl bottle from Simply Market, 4.20€, relatively expensive. Orange color, almost clear, some particles, nice big rocky white head. Aroma of pale malts and citrus hops, herb, resin, light fruity (pineapple, passionfruit). Taste is sweetish balanced with some sourness and proper bitter aftertaste. Medium body, dusty texture, soft to average carbonation, smooth finish. Nice pale ale

Karol (912) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 6, 2017
Bottled. Part of a beer bag I got for birthday. Many thanks. Overall this a very good beer in terms of fresh hop aroma, bityer and malty taste and a fine malty and a bit sour hops finish. Any time again!
