Draught @ Gastropub NordicPlovmand (8317) - Helsinge, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2011
Rather light aroma is a bit suprising: lots of wheat and some fruity hops. Flavour has lots of grapefruit-like hops and some wheat. Gets more sweet when warms up. Slightly weird, but good, hoppy and refreshing pale ale.
Bottle. Pours hazy golden with a fluffy off white head. The aroma is fruity and citric hops with notes of peach, mango and lemon. The flavour is passion fruit, peach, grapefruit and citrus. Highly fruity overall. Very nice. jredmond (8288) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 3, 2011
Draft at Rattle with Linh and Chris. Pours an amber orange body. Aroma is sweet malts, floral and citrus hops. Mouthfeel is medium and refreshing with notes of citrus hops, earthy, floral tones, and sweet malts. jackl (8071) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 12, 2013
Keg @ The Euston Tap. Medium amber color with a small white head. The nose is some orange peel, light grass, some confier, light toffee. The taste is pale malts, light orange and citrus fruit salad. Notes of caramel. Mild bitterness on the long finish. Smooth, easy to drink. Overall, a solid effort. Just OK. Not really my idea of a ’west coast pale’.

Amber colour with a tan head. Malty and fruity aroma. What on earth did they think about when they wrote: Think a bolder and more aromatic version of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. No way. SNPA rules! This had a solid malty background in the flavour with some fruity and bready notes. More malty than hoppy this one. APA? Hmmm. Soft texture.

Tap @ Hilpeä Hauki, Helsinki.motelpogo (7704) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 13, 2015
Pours a deep amber colour with a long-lasting white head. Aroma of faint fruits and caramel. Flavour of caramel malts, fruits such as grapefruit and floral hops. Quite sweet. Medium bodied with a slick mouthfeel. Hoppy fruity finish. Not bad but lacks character.

Flaske 0,5l fra Vinmonopolet, Bestillingsutvalget. Drukket i heimen 16 Jul 12. Orange-brun. Litt uklar. Høyt kremaktig skum som varer en god stund. God fruktig aroma. Innslag av mandler. Lite kullsyre. Myk munnfølelse. Smaken sammensatt. mandler & aprikos. Svakt syrlig ettersmak. OK tørsteslukker - men også egnet som koseøl. KI=7. larsga (7542) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 31, 2012
Medium beige head. Slightly hazy amber body. Roasty malty aroma
with caramelly notes. Dry-sweet caramelly dusty taste with
roasty grainy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish
caramelly chocolatey aftertaste with grainy dusty earthy notes.
Nice, drinkable, and understated. More of a brown ale than a pale
ale, if you ask me. (0.5l bottle, wine monopoly, Vika, Oslo.) Idiosynkrasie (7539) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 15, 2012
500ml bottle. Cloudy dark golden to amber colour with medium frothy lacing white head. Distinct but moderate hop aroma. Taste is more "powerful", dry and bitter hop, herbal, metallic. Definitely not easy to drink. The hop notes are not on the flattering range of the tongue’s spectrum, but rather strenuous. Nevertheless worth the fray.
