(From 75cl bottle @ ZZT V. Thanks for sharing, DutchDrebus!)
Bottle @ zzt. Aroma is fruity and flowery hops, slight bready malt note. Flavour is mild bitterness, a bit sweaty with long lingering malt and hop bitterness. Okay, but nothing special. Oakes (19409) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 19, 2014
Hazy and amber, fruity hop nose, subtle sweet malts, good clean APA with a little malt chewiness. GraveAtSea (140) - Lublin, POLAND - APR 8, 2014
Clear gold/amber color with nice white head,lacing glass. Smooth aroma: hops, tropical fruits, caramel and malts. Semi dry, bitter, herbal and hoppy taste, with a bit malty sweetness in the background. Notes of tropical fruits, herbs, grass, grapefruits, oranges and tangerines. Medium body with medium carbonation. Good APA. Flavor could be more intense. lello4ever (1243) - ITALY - MAR 12, 2016
Ambra chiaro, schiuma evanescente. Un po’ debole di aroma. Al palato frutta, sentori floreali. Carbonazione bassa.

Bottle @ deTolly, Tartu. Pours clear amber with small white head. Aroma: citrus, hay, a bit cow shit, weak herb notes. Taste: up to medium bitter, malty, hay/grass, citrus, some sourness, fuits. Medium body. Nice drinking beer. Dry. bitter finish. heavy (2911) - Split, CROATIA - AUG 6, 2017
Dec. ’16. On tap at Ma Che, Rome. It poured almost clear yellow body with medium sized head. Weaker aroma of nice citrus Cascade hops with light biscuit and honey malt. Flavor was bitter, beautiful bitterness showcased citrus, herbs and fresh grass. Malty, lightly sweet counterpart reminded of biscuit and caramel. Not particularly rich in body, let’s say medium, with moderately long bitter, dry herbal finish. Well executed pale ale. MartinT (10155) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 11, 2008
My Bottom Line:JorisPPattyn (10113) - BELGIUM - SEP 9, 2008
Earthy hop resins surround the mild malt sweetness in this smooth and moderately bitter American-style Pale Ale.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A pillowy head of foam slowly sinks into the hazy blond orange.
-Some caramel undertones are felt.
-The handpump serving imparts a very smooth mouthfeel.
-I am used to enjoying more hop aromatics from the style, so the politely citrusy nose was a little too subdued for my tastes.
-The resinous hop bitterness is lengthy but never overbearing.
On cask at the brewpub.
Draught Small head, very fast gone over (cold) hazy pale-orange beer. Nutty nose, slighly oxydized malts, followed after some time by UK-like hops; further caramel. Very nice lightly bitter in the British way, but with a strange retronasal flavour, very outspokenly reminiscent of peanut butter. Not really light body; good carbonation. Strange, but certainly not bad - makes a good ’quaffing’ ale. Skinnyviking (9767) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 16, 2009
Bottle. Medium high white and lasting head. Clear golden body. Fruity aroma with grassy notes. Mild but fairly hopped barley malt flavor with caramel low carbonation and a long dry aftertaste.
