Hops- the best there is in this world! Well, almost. This is a hop driven beer. A beer where it is all about hops. But what kind of hops? We just couldn’t decide which, and used hops from all over the world; England, Slovenia, New Zealand, Czech Republic, USA, Germany and Australia. A total of 13 different types of hops. It does not get better than this!

Bottle. A more or less clear one, golden in color and topped by a small, white head. The aroma is fruity and floral, with mango and peaches. Some maltyness. The flavor is equally pleasant, with the hops playing the major part. Some maltyness and sweetness, and a fine bitterness. Medium body, soft carbonation. Mostly bitter finish. Overall, a tad too sweet to be the refreshing and quenching summer beer I hoped for. Still, it’s a nice beer. 130521

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.

From a can on a crowded train. Aroma is pineapple and mango. Taste leads with sweet tropical fruit with a moderately bitter finish. Drinkable but forgettable.

Bottle. Shaker. Golden, medium hazy with medium, semi-thick, frothy, white head. Goode head retention and lacing. Moderately malty aroma (pale), caramel. The hoppy profile is moderate - mainly grassy, citrus (oranges) and light tropical fruits (mango) notes. Taste is moderately sweet with nicely balanced moderate bitterness. Medium body, oily texture, soft to average carbonation, finish is long, fruity, semi-bitter and citrus. In general solid APA, nicely balanced and highly drinkable.

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.
