Bottle from Vinmonopolet Nettbutikk. Cloudy amber colored. Low greyish-blond head. Nutty, marzipan-like aroma. A distant whiff of fruity hops. Medium body strength. Strange sweet flavor, like artificial sweetener. Malt-accented, with peppery caramel and nuts. Restrained fruity bitterness. Malty finish with a vague fruity bitterness. A decent beverage, but not a (West Coast) Pale Ale in my book. Habanero (4848) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - MAY 12, 2012
Bottled. Pours a deep amber with a medium sized off-white head leaving a fair lace. Nose of floral hops, citrus fruits, peacy notes and caramel. Sweet flavor with grapefruit, peach and caramel. Medium bodied, watery to oily texture and soft carbonation. Ends up more dry and nice bitter. An OK APA maybe a little weak on the palate. Palme (4824) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 16, 2012
0.5l bottle @ Patricks, Kristiansand. A blurry dark copper-ish beer with a big and lasting off-white head. Nice lacing on this. On the aroma this one has candy tones, fruity hops, caramel and it’s quite fresh and almost zesty as well. A bit thin - almost watery texture and the carbonation level is comfortably average to soft. Nice flavors, perhaps a tad sweet and it’s really fruity! Hints of fruity citrus plants all the way. I would describe it as very easy to drink little of, but not great to drink a whole lot of. Really low bitterness all the way, and perhaps not utterly exciting, but I found it quite tasty. Just what I needed now. 30.03.2012 sfhodense (4788) - Odense NØ, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2012

Clear amber body, huge beige head. Malty aroma, some caramel, taste is malty too, with straw and a scent of alcohol. A Light fruity hop taste hides in the back. As the label clearly states "Big, fruity hop aroma and flavour" this is a disappointing beer as almost all hops I sense are bittering hops. It’s not a bad beer by any means, it’s just far from the beer both the name and label indicates, in my opinion at least. Accompanying the elsewhere nice bitter hops is a crisp malt finish. I guess I’d have enjoyed this beer more if the name and label didn’t prepare me for a totally different beer than what was inside. Grovlam (4253) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 20, 2011
Bottle. Large bubbly beige like head that mostly lasted. Fair display of lacework. Cloudy golden/amber color. Aroma of preach, passion fruit, pineapple, light toffee. Quite hoppy fruity aroma and mouthful. The aroma is right up there with Sierra Nevada in my opinion, but the body is a bit too thin. Light to medium bodied with an average carbonation and light oily dry texture. Light to moderated bitter and sweet flavor. Gets a little bit of that liquorish like finis from the hops. brnandersen (4175) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 22, 2015
Sample from 33 cl. bottle, Amagerbro Beerfestival 2015. This beer is brewed by 961 Beer in Lebanon. Slightly hazy amber-golden colour with a thin, white head. Fruity aroma with caramel malts, grass, citrus and light earthy notes. Taste is light bitter. Medium body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes dry and slightly bitter with caramel malts and citrus. Nice APA, I prefer them drier and more fruity-bitter. bartlebier (4123) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - SEP 13, 2015
330ml as "Kissmeyer West Coast Pale Ale", 5,5%, - brewed & bottled at Gravity Brewing, Lebanon (? - 2nd entry?), 19/11/2014 - exp. 19/11/2015. - A tad old maybe, as imported by Rudat, but held up well: some cheesy hops in a peach compote in aroma, yoghurt and blossom, going into indeed into a sort of less precise, bitter and yeastier version of SNPA: candied orange and peach, yoghurt, bitter blossom. Well-composed, odd Lebanon small-batch contract brew with some flabby elements by one of the Scandinavian-US scene’s grand seigneurs. gam (4078) - brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 9, 2012
