Can at Bishops Arms, Vasagatan.
Really a very good beer! The color was a bit cloudy orange. Quite large foam that left residue on the glass. Nice aroma with a lot of grapefruit.
Beautiful palate with plenty of fruit and a lot of sweetness. Grape, a bit buttery feel and a pleasant taste with a pleasant bitterness. Very refreshing and a great beer to drink. imdownthepub (15762) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2009
Tinned, Pasteurised, 355ml courtesy of Casey (Doppelganger). Gold to amber with white head. Simply surprising, a beer in a can that tastes this fresh, it cannot be, not when you have been brought up with the dross that is UK tinned beer. This is bright, freshly hoppy, grassy, orange citric and very pleasant. Dry and refreshing. Many thanks Casey for this and for showing me how a tinned beer could be. crajun (1282) - , Texas, USA - OCT 18, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2010 Wow: very sweet malty with a strong bitter hop finish..
too bitter for my taste but an impressive effort.
re taste 5/15/2010 - stick with above; lowered slightly 08/10 - from can to glass; not as bitter nor sweet - ok just not my style bonk0076 (99) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 15, 2009
In my mind, the perfect beer. A nice hoppy bite complemented with a sweet little finish. VERY drinkable, yet quietly complex. CanIHave4Beers (4284) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - OCT 12, 2009
Pours a lightly hazy color which is just a little darker than blonde (golden)... eh I don’t know. The head is big and there is a great lace on this one. The aroma has lost of hops, fruity hops, pineappley hops, orange and citrus hops! The flavor is lots of nice fruity hops with just a mild maltiness, delicious stuff.

Poured pale golden yellow, clean, smooth, malty, hoppy, little caramel, slight citrus tilldeath (109) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 7, 2009
While a good pale ale, there’s something I can’t put my finger on and I am sad to say I really am not a fan of this. Maybe something was up with it on tap, and I might venture to retry and rerate at a later date, but for now I have to say this is one of Osakr Blues beers I dislike.

On draft at redlight redlight. A smooth easy to drink pale ale. Deep golden in color. Bitter citrus in the nose. The flavor goes down easy with a solid malt/hop balance and a slight hop bitterness in the finish. Very refreshing. JackfromJax (23) - Florida, USA - SEP 29, 2009
Pours medium gold to medium dark with a decent white head that discipates but lingers around the glass. Clarity is somewhat hazy from the apparent dry hopping. Initial aroma is more malty than expected with a earthy hop bitterness and clean hop aroma. Maybe Chinook for bittering. Taste is surprisingly malty with an assertive bitterness that finishes with a pleasant dry hopped piney resiny aftertaste. Medium bodied with a medium dry finish. A really good APA.

Initial aroma is slightly bitter with an earthy aroma. A nice rich flavor with hints of citrus and molasses. Finish is nice and hoppy but not overpowering. A unique and tasty brew.
