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!

Fannntastic for me! Has that toasty, malty salty sunflower palate. The body and flavor remind me of a big west coast Irish red ale. Organic personality. Finish is slightly sweet up front and then ends with bitter dry malty hops. If you can get this don’t pass it up. It’s a real treat. I’ve got to get me some more. Awesome!

Poured from tap to glass. Light orange tinted straw hue with creamy white head. Aroma is very floral with essences of honey, citrus, straw, wildflower. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium light body and great carbonation. Taste is dry with a nice bitter following and an astringent metallic finish. Overall this is a good brew.

Un couleur ambrée avec une petite mousse beige/blanche. Le goût a un peu de malt suivi par d’houblon. Pas trop remarquable.

A Tale of Two Bottles - first was Eh, at best. Second was stellar. Nice toasted cracker malt backbone. Big wet, fresh hops on the nose. Sharp and powerful hop presence with a pronounced tart grapefruit citrus. Some deep grassy notes with a huge floral hop presence and notes of pine. Crisp, light dry finish. Very nice pale that doesnt shy away from the great Northwest hop tradition.

Sammer (1119) - Plano, Texas, USA - APR 4, 2011
Deep golden pour from bottle. Nice white head. Aroma is pine and bread. Taste is citrus, light hops and grass. A very clean, very enjoyable beer. I would drink this one again for sure.

A very good beer in my opinion. Large full body, malty. General citrus hop, strong and lasting, and wheat /grain flavor throughout.

Taverner (1100) - San Ramon, California, USA - NOV 29, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2009 Overall not a bad beer. My bottle got a little skunked, but its not too overpowering. Pours a clear, slightly hazy goldenrod with white head that sticks around a little. Flavor is crisp hoppage, with notes of grass and grain. Finish is clean. Decent.

Nicely sweet with some sticky hops in the aroma. Crustal clear, light amber in color, with a thin white head. Biscuity and toasty, nice caramel with stingy hoppiness. Slight grass, pine and citrus. Great beer.
