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 (9624) - 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

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

Bland packaging. The beer is nice. But nothing you haven’t tasted before. Typical IPA beer. Does the job haha....

Ungstrup (35954) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 13, 2017
Draft. A hazy dark golden beer with a lazing white head. The aroma has notes of hops, flowers, fruits, and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, straw, flowers, and fruit, leading to a bitter finish.

klukas (208) - Rijeka, CROATIA - DEC 11, 2016
Enjoyed: Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass. Appearance: Blurry deep golden/orange colour; small but nice head. Aroma: Excellent fragrance of flowers, grass, hops, somehow dusty… Palate: Medium body; Light carbonation. Taste: Bread, malt, hint of caramel; Moderate bitterness with more bitter aftertaste. Overall impression: Excellent, tasty beer for daily enjoyment.

330 ml bottle. Best before 28.11.2016. :) Pours clear deep golden amber colour. Bubbly instant-fading white head. Low carbonation. Aroma: herbal hops, sweetish malts, honey, wormwood. Flavour is dead hops, grass, candy, malts. Sorry, but it seems to be a waste of money.
