The ubiquitous Pale Ale. The workhorse of pretty much any modern brewery. The brief we gave ourselves for our flagship beer was that it should be able to be sent to any bar in San Diego and to stand proudly alongside the many great Pales produced in, and around, the west coast of the US. The schematic for a West Coast Pale Ale is bucket loads of big US hops, full malty backbone and a characterful yeast. That is what this Pale Ale is all about. Enjoy as fresh as possible. Beer pairing: Everything, all of the time.

Boks fra Vinmonopolet Tromsø - Langnes. Gylden. Nesten helt klar. Høyt luftig skum som daler sakte. Litt lacing. Ferskenaroma. Myk munnfølelse. Smaken tørket frukt med spor av malt. God balanse.

Can courtesy of fletchfighters via IP trade (thanks man!); shared during apt move - Feb 2018. Pours an amber body with soft lace. Sweet sugary nose. Thin to light bodied with notes of sweet malt candy. Minimal hop profile - not sure if this is stale at this point.

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2018 355 ml can poured into a tulip glass. Appearance of pour is a clear amber color, with a good head of sticky and persistent white froth. Aroma is malty and grapefruit citrus. Taste is similar, fruity, grapefruit bittersweet followed by long, moderate piney bitter. Medium bodied, nicely carbonated.

this is the worst beer l have ever tasted in my life and believe me l have tasted a lot in my lifetime , what really surprises me about this beer is how it even got into the market to be produced at all and that is very disturbing as this is vomit material in fact it took me three hours to even get the after taste of this disgusting sickening pathetic apologie of a beer out of my mouth , how on earth it was ever allowed is beyond human thinking in fact l dont think it was a human who even allowed this to ever be marketed at all, l mean seriously ??

355 ml can bought at Great Food Hall in Pacific Place, Admiralty.

Looks: Clear deep amber colour; Three-quarter finger head with soapy off-white foam which fades in 40 seconds; Excellent sticky lacing with active slight carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant Ale malt, with melon, pepper, white grapes, citrus, caramel, floral, sugar, light pine, biscuits, lime and light grass.

Taste: Mid to light sweet Ale malt, with grapefruits, light caramel, floral, light molasses, pine, fair resins, herbs, biscuits, lime, medium bitter hops and grass.

Body: Mid to full body. Very slick and fairly oozy palate.

Mouth Feel: Very good Ale maltyness in a thick background. Moderate grapefruits hops with moderate caramel. Flowery with fair sweetness. Quite piney oozy, herbal and biscuity with lime to round. Nice!

Hoppiness: Melon, pepper, white grapes, citrus, floral, light pine, lime and light grass in nose. Grapefruits, floral, pine, resins, herbs, lime and grass in taste; Bitterness is fairly strong for a lasting, mid to high astringent bitter-sweet caramel malty finish.

After Taste: Quite dry. Herbal oozy and quite bitter to mouth.

Comments: Got to like this one' aroma the most - strong fruity melon and pepper - while the taste is solid caramel malty with fair citrus and ooze. Every character is done just enough to impress with no apparent overshoot or deficit. Solid all round and right on the money!

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2018 Had the kick I was expecting after reading other reviews. Tasty drop with an IPA big brother I’ll be getting my hands on soon. Pricy for a 6pack but aren’t all craft beers these days.

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2017 A great American style pale ale. Made in Australia but nothing like the scum we call Australia pale ale. A bit on the pricey side but worth it for a good beer.

Can. Amber beer with a strong head. The aroma is strongly hopped with bitter notes. The flavour is very bitter and hopped with a long lasting bitter and dry finish. Overall a nice pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2017 Pours from can a rich golden amber with a rapidly dissipating head. Aroma of tropical fruit and caramelised biscuit. Mild carbonation with a lingering malty fruit salad flavour explains why these guys got bought out by an industrial factory looking for flavour.
