lelisboa (62) - Amsterdam, - NOV 24, 2012
Almost-clean orangish color. Smells hops and something sweet. Good aroma. Not too bitter but very drinkable. I like it, no doubt. You may remark it lacks some strength but it is a hones and well done IPA. Thumbs up!

corkyrory66 (1725) - BELGIUM - FEB 24, 2017
American pale ale de 6 % abv et 30 ebu, avec houblons amricains (cest mieux pour le style ..). Mon exemplaire tait 1 an avant sa date, jour pour jour... Couleur dor moyen (22 ebc), la clart nette. Bulles trs fines, par centaines, partout. Superbe. Mousse blanche, trs paisse, avec structure plus ferme en haut, stable 8 mm. Armes de joli malt, houblon en fleur, pointe dagrumes. 1re bouche souple lentame malt/fruit/houblon. Arrire-bouche avec une pointe dananas, groseille blanche. 2me lensemble qui descend nettement. Arrire-bouche avec un manque dharmonie important. 3me un peu mieux intgre. Arrire-bouche malgr tout assez vague. Longueur qui ne montre pas de dveloppement sur les saveurs. Jambes huileuses, collantes en haut. Levure dune ligne faible. Alcool inefficace, il ne peut soutenir les saveurs. Finale linaire. CONCLUSION: maximus a effectivement ouvert la bote de Pandore ..

The looks of the beer are quite simple. The color of the brew is a pale amber. The beer has a little haze. On top of the beer some soft but rough white foam is formed. The foam retention isnt that great and the bulk collapses within minutes, leaving nearly nothing. The smell is weak. It takes some strong sniffs to really get a good smell. There are some malt aromas at the front, backed up by some slightly resinous hop aromas. There is some alcohol smellable. That is about it. I wish there was more and there were stronger aromas. The taste is a bit stronger. There are the same malts, some resinous hops...the hops are a bit stronger and contain some fruity touches. The beer has a nice bitterness. You can also clearly taste some alcohol and a touch of liquorice. The flavour is a bit simple over all. Could have been more special. The palate is simple to. Medium light body and carbonation. The finish is a bit watery, but also has some bitters. It isnt that long. I expected more.

EvNa (202) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 11, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2016 Bottle. Color: Orangish golden, white head. Taste: Fizzy combination of medium sweet malt and hoppy medium floral bitterness. Hints of citrus and caramel. Nothing more and nothing less. Tending to a blond. Ok beer but not that special.

VueltaBirrista (82) - Murcia, SPAIN - DEC 3, 2016
Fabricada con lpulos americanos, le falta el carcter y el nervio de la mayora de Pale Ale tpicamente americanas. Por el contrario, nos encontramos ante una birra suave, de cuerpo medio y eso s bastante fresca y apetecible. Su espuma es blanca y disipa muy pronto. En nariz es dulce. Como muy maltosa. En boca aparecen frutas como melocotn y un recuerdo a limonada, lo que le da ese caracter refrescante al que antes me refera. Su amargor final es muy contenido y algo seco. Una cerveza muy amable y fcil de beber.

gunnar (8573) - Sandnes, NORWAY - NOV 13, 2016
Sampled at Bad Flash, Prague at Maximus presentation. Pours clear golden with a big white head. Weak fruity hop aroma. Taste is light sweet fruity, some honey with grassy dry hops. Refreshing and tasteful beer.

DijkBier (274) - AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS - NOV 11, 2016
Dark golden pour with small nearly white head. Aroma is lightly sweet of yellow fruits, apple and vanilla. Taste is little disappointing: somewhat watery, a very very faint bitterness, and it lacks some further qualities. This is more a regular blond than an APA.

spechtacular (128) - Warszawa, POLAND - SEP 13, 2016
Barwa jasnobursztynowa, bardzo dużo opadu białkowego co psuje wrażenia estetyczne. Aromat lekko tropikalny i ścierkowaty. W smaku lekka żywica i tropiki, goryczka nieprzyjemna, łodygowa. Wysokie nagazowanie.

Blueshawk (465) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 5, 2016
- trbes bernstein mit leichter schnell zerfallender Schaumbildung - ganz leichte, kaum wahrnehmbare Aromen nach Aprikose und Apfel - gute krftige Carbonisierung - geschmacklich wird das ganze dann relativ flach und von Ausdruck her einfach nur bitter ohne sonstige Aromen - der Abgang bringt dann auch nichts neues mehr Fazit: Bitter und flach = das wars

Sampled from tap at the brewpub. Clear, golden yellow with a frothy, off-white head. Sweetish, fruity and a little floral aroma of lemon, fresh grass and some pineapple. Sweetish, fruity and a little floral taste of lemon, pineapple, some honey and fresh grass, followed by a short, slightly bitter, a little dry finish. Medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Refreshing!
