3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I can sense a fine, albeit a little weak, aromas of orange peel and citrus from this Global Pale Ale. Global Pale Ale is brewed with a total of 13 different types of hops from around the world and this makes it unfortunately impossible to differentiate between. The taste is at first a fine light caramel malt which quickly goes over to hoppy taste where a true cascade of hops notes hits the taste buds. I tastes most orange peel and grapefruit, but also slightly sweet mandarin. IBU is 40 and it is equivalent to a moderate amount of alpha acid as well may cause the bitter taste in a pale ale depending on the type of hops. But with 13 different types of hops there is not really anything major theme in hops profile and it’s actually a little sorry for the beer has otherwise a very fine and delicate composition where a more uniform and cooperative hops had probably given it a greater flavor spectrum. But then i would not have been global anymore, so if Nøgne Ø’s intention has been to blend the world together in several hops, so they managed fine. I miss maybe just a hoppy identity and uniqueness becomes more visible.

Hazy blond colour with thin head. Aroma and flavour have a real mix of hop notes. Initially some mandarin and grapefruit. It gets a bit more pney and skunky in the finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, orange, tropical fruit, grain, hops and citrus.
Turbid/opaque golden/amber beer with a medium off-white head.
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, orange and tropical fruit; ends slightly bitter and dry with grain, hops and citrus.
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. The tasty flavours at the beginning soon make place for a dry and hoppy finish. A pleasant, but somewhat dull, beer overall.
