Slight twang to it. Medium body with floral notes. Fairly drinkable. Good beer overall. Bov (12636) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 23, 2013
courtesy of Jürg Kohler - light blond-orange beer with a poor foam left; pineapple and grapefruity hoppiness; medium-bodied, decently tasty and quite bitter; moderate carbonation; pretty dry and long fruity hoppy reminiscence of bitter oranges and grapefruit ansjelaah (1748) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - DEC 25, 2013

12 oz bottle from Evergreen Discount. Golden and clear with a white head. Floral hops, tropical/citrus fruit, bread and toasted malts. Light to medium body with a crisp feel, a clean finish and lingering bitterness. A solid pale ale. foyle (421) - Wyoming, USA - DEC 26, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2013 Appearance: sudsy 1" off white head recedes quickly with nice lacing. Color is clear rich gold with mild streaming carbonation.
Aroma: citrus and floral aroma dominates, some caramel and bread dough in the background.
Mouthfeel: light and somewhat sticky mouthfeel with a somewhat dry finish.
Flavor: balanced hop and malt flavors. The sweet caramel and bready malts lead the way, followed by citrus and then a lingering bitterness in the swallow.
Overall: a pleasant pale ale and representative of the style.

On tap at My Wine Cellar. Pours light golden with a thick, foamy head. Aroma of citrusy hops (orange, tangerine), heavy wet alfalfa, some pine, and a light, grassy wheat tone. Crisp, refreshing taste of pine resin, juicy orange, and moderate woody bitterness. A lovely, sessionable pale. Gerbeer (3745) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 15, 2014
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear amber with moderate retentive head and lots if carbonation. Aromas of malts, grapefruit and rubber. Flavors of toasted malts, cereal, light pine and melons. gildnerk (201) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - FEB 22, 2014
Good pale ale, although somewhat more subdued than I would’ve liked. Pours a fluffy white head that dissipates quickly. Medium gold colour. Great citrusy, somewhat musky aroma. Well-carbonated. Cereal notes on the nose, with a sharp, hoppy, rather bitter finish. All in all somewhat weak in the palate for a top pale ale, but still very enjoyable. Ratto (132) - - APR 27, 2014
From bottle, bbe 10.12.2014. Nice pale goldebn colour. Aroma is malty and fudge-like. Taste follows aroma with piny bitterness. OldMrCrow (2437) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 14, 2014
Bottle from Bob’s.
Gold pour, full white pour. Grapefruit and pineapple dominate the aroma with some floral goings-on as well. Bready malts meet crisp but not aggressive hops in a flavor that is similar but less metallic than some "Californian pale ales" I can think of. Just a touch of toffee sweetness. Unchallenging but all the more enjoyable for that.
