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!

22 oz bottle from New Seasons - This one had a fantastic floral aroma right out of the bottle with about a 3/4 inch foam head. Once the foam dissipated a little, some of the aroma went away. Palate was a bit lively, but not too much. Nice bitter finish for a Pale. This is a very nice beer. Too bad it’s only available in the spring.

Pours cloudy translucent rish orange with a big frothy beige head that fades leaving peaks. Aroma of malt, citrus rind, pine, herb. Taste is somewhat lemony and piney with lots of malt and a not so bitter finish but it is there mildly. medium thick body, smooth carbonation.

Clear dark golden with a fizzy white head. Sweet floral malty and bready aroma and taste with nice citrus and fruit notes and a crisp finish.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 23, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2010 Bottled. Gold pour with a fluffy off-white white head on it. Juicy hop aroma on this with citrus along with dank notes: wet earth and grass. Tastes lightly toasty and biscuity, with a bright citrus hop finish. A little bit of resinous bitter lingers on the finish. Nice moderately light body, pleasant carbonation. I love Ninkasi for being cheap and reliable.

Bomber into shaker. Aroma is citrus-forward in a big way. A bit floral, as well. Pours a clear deep gold with a thick head that leaves nice decorative lacework. Taste is very bitter with very little malt sweetness. Carbonation is medium-low. Body is medium. Creamy mouthfeel. Bitterness lingers on the tongue long after the last sip. This is one of the bitterest beers I’ve ever had. Not that that’s a bad thing. I’d rather have a bitter hoppy beer than a sweet malty one. Good beer.

rmussman (1701) - California, USA - JUN 2, 2010
Sampled out of a 22oz bottle. Pours deep light brown. Really cloudy and a decent head on it. A really nice pale ale for the beginning of summer. Really a quality brew. Good hoppiness with light crisp malting. Nice brew.

Blake (398) - Orange, California, USA - JUN 21, 2010
Had from bottle from BevMo. Seasonal release, first I’ve seen it in stores. Pours copper with good head and good lacing. Aroma is piney hops, malts, citrus, and sugar. Flavor is about the same with the almost perfect balance of hops and malts. I really enjoyed this Pale, maybe because of the increased hops. Just a nice, drinkable, tasty beer.

RedSox2004 (1970) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - MAR 27, 2011
Clear gold with a bright white fluffy head and very nice lacing. Bright citrus aromas with hints of crystal malts. Nicely balanced flavors of slightly sweet bready malts and crisp hops bitterness, featuring an almost-tart lemony taste. Light to medium body, highly carbonated, and super clean crisp finish. Perhaps the best lawnmower beer made.

3.8
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.
