COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Seasonal Release Series. Spring forward with this refreshing seasonal ale. Notes of toasted malt up front with a bright and crisp Northwest hop finish. It’s a session beer that everyone can enjoy.

Like many Ninkasi beers, this is an ale more than a specific style, though we put it in the Northwest Pale category. A light toasted malt flavor is more reminiscent of a British Pale, but the hops are bright and very Northwest. Flavorful and easy to drink!

Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
10oz

Deep blond color, hazy, with creamy head. Some malt and hop aroma, a bit fruity, but lighter than expected. The mouthfeel is rather dry; the malt flavor has a grass and hay accent, some toffee; strong bitterness, with a lot of hop resins, but also a vegetables character; long and strong final.
Ok beer, but below expectations too much vegetable presence in the final.

On tap at the Alibi Room, pours pale golden. Aroma of floral hops. Flavour of citrus, floral hops, with a sort of soapy quality. Pretty standard APA.

Oakes (18472) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 23, 2014
6% session beer, lol. Sure, if you’re a sumo. Golden-bronze colour. Toasty malt with a touch of apple. Berryish character, splash of bitterness and then there’s a dry, hoppy finish. Ok brew.

TBone (17987) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 9, 2011
Bottled 0,65l (bottle bought in Portland, OR)
Deep golden color, small white head. Bready malty, honeyish, a bit herbal aroma. Medium-bodied. Sticky leafy, grassy hoppyness with woody-piney notes. Lingering piney bitterness in the aftertaste. Aroma was a bit off, but flavorwise a solid brew.

Sample at the Tap House Grill in Seattle. The beer is a slightly cloudy orange color with a medium rocky white head that evaporates slowly. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Grassy hops and malt in the nose. Light to medium body with flavors of herbal hops, fruit and malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a grassy hops aftertaste. Decent overall.
