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.

MoritzF (10018) - Ottobrunn, - JUN 30, 2013
(bottle) Slightly hazy, golden colour with a mid-sized, slightly off-white foamy head. Herbal, slightly grassy and subtle fruity hoppy aroma with a slightly buttery malty background. Moderately sweet and slightly bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a modest carbonation. Buttery and doughy malt upfront with mainly herbal and grassy hops; dry and moderately bitter finish with a lasting herbal and grassy hoppy aftertaste. Not bad but I missed the fruit character. 29.VI.13

Cloudy with minimal white head, butter and light citrus aroma, hoppy, medium bitterness, long bitter finish. O'Hara's never disappointed me and this irish pale ale is their another nice beer.

Bottle from the Istria trip bought in Konzum. Clear amber. Hoppy and malty aroma. Taste is primarily malty. Medium body. Low bitterness. Not impressed. Especially as it reads IPA on the bottle.

rauchbier (3908) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2017
Bottle. Orange gold, thin short lived off white head, gentle condition. Muted grapefruit citrus notes and a touch of sweet yeastiness in the nose, full bodied in the mouth with some gentle citrus fruitiness but becoming dominantly bitter with hints of yeast and some grassy hop notes, finish has a slightly peppery spiciness but a lingering harsh bitterness takes over.

Good for those who like to feel a strong flavor of hops and toasted malts. I missed a little bit more of water. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GemmeDeReve (119) - FRANCE - JUL 24, 2017
Bi?re blonde couleur p?che sans mousse et avec une l?g?re carbonation. Pas de nez, peut ?tre l?g?rement sur le citron, mais tr?s discret. Bonne p?tillance, l?g?re acidit?, la bi?re manque de palais, elle est tr?s discr?te pour moi, passe tr?s vite en bouche. Il faut que je la retente ? temp?rature ambiante.

Kittenbieer (240) - LYON, FRANCE - JUL 22, 2017
Dégustée dans un verre "Straffe Hendrik",belle couleur orangée surmontée d’une mousse blanche peu persistante avec une carbonatation moyenne.Le nez nous offre des arômes d’agrumes et de houblons qui se retrouvent en bouche avec des notes d’amertume se mêlant à l’ensemble d’une façon bien équilibrée.Une bière légère mais qui laisse en finale une sensation très plaisante avec cette petite pointe citronnée:14,5/20!
