Oh you cheeky Danes! All Other Pale! harrisoni (19412) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2008
But seriously, this is a great beer! Have there been enough exclamation points for you to understand that this is a good beer.
where to begin...
Aroma is like a light IPA. Some wheaty-grassy notes under a a fruity-citrusy hop note. Even the aroma is well balanced though with some doughy notes as well.
It looks good to drink as well and tastes even better. the hops and malts are perfectly balanced.
GREAT beer all around.
Bottle at Chris_o birthday bash 08. My beer of the day. Gold with slight haze, thin beige head. God that is such a good aroma. The peppery grapefruit. The fruit is just lovely. Jellied grapefruit. Then in the mouth is juicy malt and lovely hops which go on and on. Lovely and definitely beer of the day. OD40oz (774) - Box Elder, South Dakota, USA - JAN 25, 2009
After having the beer geek breakfast I was pumped to try this one. Pours like iced tea with a nice foamy, off-white head. Aroma was of grass, citrus and hops. Tasted very earthy and hoppy. Good lacing. Dry finish. Damn good beer. GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - MAR 25, 2008
I poured this at a very cold temp and it still produced the classic Mikkeller head. Good retention and superb fluffy, sticky lacing that lasts. The color is a firey orange. Strong aromas of citrus rind and leather. Full nectar with good carbonation. This is a classic. Blistering bitterness balanced beautifully with a solid malt backbone. It’s dry not fruity. It’s simply classic. The finish is pure American west coast bitter that lingers. Acknud (1082) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - MAY 29, 2008
A great APA made in Denmark. Beautiful pour. Orange with a small head and tight lacing. Orange citrus aroma. Taste is very hoppy...just the way I like them. I just finished mowing and this hit the spot.

600 ml bottle in pint glass. Copper with lasting head and lace. Nicely balanced fresh citrus hop and biscuity aroma. Very nice mild honey peach sweetness with toasty biscuit and citrusy fresh hop finish. Medium body and carbo. Nice mouthfeel. Really really an excellent complex and satisfying pale ale. Too bad it is so expensive that I will only be able to enjoy it once. mwelsh13 (499) - Maryland, USA - MAY 10, 2009
Bottle pours medium brown/gold with a fluffy off white head. Big time grassy aroma with some pine and flroal hoppiness. Medium body with a medium hop bitterness that replicates the aroma. Bitterness nicely matched with the slight candy sweetness and bread like body. Very nice APA made by a non US company. patrickfannon (1242) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 25, 2010
Bottle. 22 oz. Drank this on a cloudy, humid, Sunday, just before a thunderstorm on the porch. This brew marks my 700th rating, and it has been a hell of a journey, to say the least. Poured this into a Three Floyds shaker. Color is deep, rich, vibrant honey orange-ruby with a tremendously thick, frothy, craggy off-white head. Aroma of resiny pine hops, bitter, juicy hops, slight caramel, hints of soapiness and tons of smooth, roasted malt. The body is medium, with a touch of alcohol on the entry and a bitter, astringent crispness on tha palate. Finishes with a slow, tight, thirst quenching semi-tartness. This pale ale is outstanding. Could not have choosen a simpler, yet more elegant, brew for my 700th. Cheers to the next 100! Chudwick (3392) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - MAR 5, 2013
16.9oz bottle - pours grapefruit orange with ivory head and great lacing. Nose is caramel, something very similar to the Mendocino malts I love and floral hops. Flavor adds bready qualities. Well balanced and almost chewy. Another European beer that questions my preconception of how a style should taste, look, etc. love it for the aromatic metonymy. Totally worth the $1.99. grimfandango (35) - GREECE - NOV 8, 2016
Can. Citrus, grass, earthy. amber, orange, hazy with solid white 2 fingers foam.Light body.A bit fizzy. Overall a very nice APA.
