22 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly hazed gold with a moderate linen white head that lingered through the first quarter of the glass and left a film on the glass along with a collection of tiny pinpricks. Pleasant aroma that is predominantly grapefruit and orange with a few notes of grainy malt. The flavor is bready malt along with grapefruit. The breadiness of the malt lingers on the palate longer than the grapefruit hops bitterness at the finish. No problems here. Svesse (8613) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 21, 2009
(Bottle, Oliver Twist, Stockholm, 19 Oct 2009) Golden colour with brief, off-white head. Fruity, malty nose with peaches, citrus, grainy malt and fresh hops. Fruity, malty taste with notes of grainy malt, apricots, citrus and fresh hops in a fairly short finish. Thin body, mainly dry. Hardly exciting but the fresh hop character and the crisp malt makes it quite refreshing. cmonster (1000) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 20, 2009
Bomber served in an English pint. Pale yellow-orange color, a touch hazy, and a fluffy white head that disappears quickly. Sweet candy aroma of toffee and pound cake. Mild carbonation, light body. Crisp brew, yet plenty of hops. Mildly bitter finish. Nice APA. tokyogoat (1503) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 17, 2009
Pours a deep gold with a hint of haze.
Nose is cut grass, orange zest, honey.
Taste is hefty on the malt backbone, rather sweet for a pale ale, nice hop bitterness to combat the sweetness, herbal hop flavors, finishes with a hint of toffee and bitter floral taste. TBone (17684) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 12, 2009

Clear orange-amber color, small white head. Very citrus-juicy aroma, also some bread. Citrusy, pale malty flavor. Balanced and sweetish pale ale.
Pretty nice aroma of grain, oranges, and rose hips. Clear amber, thin head, some lacing. Rose hip flavor, with a slight maltiness. A bit of grapefuit peel in the finish. Uncomplex, sessionable. Nicely done and keeps well. Underrated and a good find. DialSquare (5062) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 19, 2009
12oz bottle. clear murky yellow pour with a thin white head. muted citrus hop aroma. light to medium tingly texture is the first thing I notice. taste is sharp grapefruit and grass with a subtle bitter finish that lasts. kind of a smack in the face - but in a good way I think. nearbeer (5454) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 14, 2009
12 oz. Creamy lemon, honey and resin aroma. Taste is resin, lemon and caramel grain. Light body is soft and mostly smooth. AlabastorJones (814) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 4, 2009
clear gold... like macro clear, thin white head, delicate yet non-discript hop nose, cascadey, flavor is pretty ’meh’, not much going on here, slightly bitter and quite refreshing, I’m not getting any bold hop flavors and am certainly not getting that toffee or any sort of malt complexity, finishes dry, pretty average pale ale.

Serving: 12 oz. bottle.
Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy, deep gold with a small, foamy, white head. This one has poor head retention, but decent lacing.
Aroma: Floral and pine hops are very vibrant and forward. Light caramel and toasted malt notes. Just a bit of grapefruit too.
Taste: The grapefruit takes a bigger part of the stage on the tongue. Light biscuit notes, light grass, and a bit of dust round out the taste. Lighter on the tongue than I was expecting based on the aroma, but still quite good.
Palate: Medium carbonation with a light mouthfeel and a medium-short finish. The finish has just a bit of bitterness on the very back of the tongue. Light and delicate on the tongue.
Overall: A light, well made beer that is worth trying and constructed well enough to enjoy again and again. Finally, a good session beer!
Rebuy: Definitely. Give this one a go if you get the chance.
