50 cl bottle from Meny Kolsås. Batch 943/948A. Pours hazy amber with a medium size, off white creamy head.Fresh hoppy aroma with notes of grapefruit, lemon and some sweet fruits. Nice hoppy flavor with the same notes as the aroma. Medium to heavy bitterness, medium carbonation, long bitter finish. Nice one

Can. Golden color. Aroma of orange,buttery caramel and herbs. Taste has lots of buttery caramel, herbal hop, orange and malt. It's not very old, but tastes like a 10 year vintage. Not good.

Aromat: świeży, intensywny, bardzo przyjemny i zróżnicowany. Nuty kwiatowe, owoce tropikalne, cytrusy i żywice. Wszystko bardzo przyjemnie skomponowane. Wygląd: jasny bursztyn, piana wysoka, biała, średniopęcherzykowa, utrzymuje się dłuższą chwilę. Smak: bogate i zróżnicowane, wszystkiego jest tu po trochu. Owoce tropikalne, piwo dosyć wytrawne, nie ma tu zbyt wiele słodyczy. Cierpkie i soczyste cytrusy, gorycz sosnowych żywic. Goryczka spora, żywiczna i trochę łodygowa, lekko zalega, mimo łodyg raczej przyjemna. Ciało lekkie ale bez wodnistości, wysycenie średnie, finisz gorzki. Soczyste i orzeźwiające, jak dla mnie to bardzo udany eksperyment. Smaczne i ciekawe piwo. 9/4/8/4/15

Hazy golden color with white head. Very hops aroma with pine and grapefruits. Taste is nothing but hops, leaves thin. Fairly bitter. Overall quite ok but i guess its too old already (6 months old bottle), could be better more fresh now just gives nothing in taste.

Burk från Kiwi, Volda. Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, citrus, apelsin med toner av aprikos. Lagom sötma, rund och len, fruktig, lätt kropp, fin beska med toner av citrus.

Nose revolving around flowers and pine. Big big attack, heavy bubbles filling the mouth and a very strong / not pleasant greeny bitterness that stays for a long time. Medium body. This beer is pretty austere, except the nose. Really about boldness/bitterness and big bubbles, but totally missing flavors. It’s surprisingly solid for a 4.5% beer though, if that’s what you’re after.

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.

Canned @ Kafe Derat. 33cl sample. The aroma has citrus, biscuit, oranges. Bit hazy, orange coloured beer with a medium head. The taste is light bitter and has citrus, light malts. Quite thin bodied even for its abv.
