For the 2011 ENDEAVOUR True Vintage Reserve Pale Ale, we chose Summer, Galaxy and Cascade Hops. Summer came into its own this year and features prominently in our 2011 Pale Ale due to the unprecedented agronomical and analytical results. Given its genealogical makeup and its parentage in the Saaz varieties, it has some nice spice aromas that are typical of the variety, but stone fruits also dominate. Galaxy was used in our 2010 vintage and we liked it so much that we decided to continue with it in 2011 after a good harvest. While important for bittering and providing texture, it also gives a lovely citrus and passionfruit lift.

Bif (2144) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - SEP 7, 2012
Bottle- Pours a hazy dark golden color with a nice head that fades to some lacing. Aroma of pine with a bit of sweetness and a bit of grain. Taste is a mix of pine and a bit of citrus. Mild sweetness with a bit of grain. Nice bitterness and a dry finish. Fairly medium body, crisp, smooth and refreshing. Nicely balanced. Very enjoyable, has a nice bit of character. Worth a try.

Cloudy, darker coloured beer. A well rounded taste that doesnt jump out on you and is very satisfying. Never thought of fruit and all that taste rubbish. This is a very good beer and so it should be, it is not cheap. All this breweries beers are good.

330ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy,medium gold, with a white head. The aroma is malty, rather than hoppy, with notes of honey, lemon peel, bread, apricot, and faint traces of diacetyl. Dry, medium body and bitterness, balanced CO2. Malty taste, hops, citrus peel, yeast, toffee, apricot, faint diacetyl and cardboard. (2012-07-16)

Bottle. Slightly hazy gold with a fluffy white head. Aroma of oranges, apricots, dough, some tropical fruit notes. Sweet and fruity with sweet citrus and stone fruits. A little too much carbonation. Less than balancing bitterness, but citrus lingers. OK, but cries out for more bitterness.
