Fruchtig frischer Antrunk, würziger schöner Malzkörper, leicht röstig. Gute Hopfenbittere (Millennium / Cascade) zum Schluss. Süffig und erfrischend.

This pours a clear gold with a 1 finger head of foam. Good head retention and a little bit of lacing.
The smell is a mix of grassy hops and sweet malt.
The taste starts of with some caramel malt and it turns toward a bitterness from the hops but I'm not getting anything really flavourful from the hops; I think they are there just to add the bitterness and try to balance the malt.
To be fair, I popped the cap on this bottle while it was still iced cold from the liquor store. I'm going to let it warm up some and continue from there.
Well, after letting it warm up, nothing much has changed. I'd call this one a good entry level Pale Ale but, at least for me, it doesn't have the flavours that I look for in the style.

Orange color with a small white head.malty taste at the end some bitterness. some floral aroma but also a metallic taste. drpimento (3799) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 30, 2017
I wouldn't say that I could smell or taste any hops per se in the beer although I do pick up some perhaps hop bitterness in the flavor. This is more of an malty reddish Amber Beer that is slightly bitter. It's okay but nothing special. Grumbo (4120) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2017
Bottle, in US. Backlog entry. Entering my historic scores for US beers whilst visiting New York. No tasting notes kept, just rating.
