very good bitter tasting beer. If you are not into beers with a bite, don’t try. one of the few beers I consistently purchase.

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2006 I honed my taste for hops on this flowery ale. This beer has one of the most distinctive floral aromas of any pale ale I’ve had with such a large distribution. Don’t let your ability to buy this beer at the grocery store fool you--it is good beer. Seek it out on tap.

Fine though disappearing white head, cloudy orange body. Mild but fresh hop aroma with fruity notes. Hop and grass in the flavor, rather sharp with a good bitter end. Very refreshing and a beer I will consume a lot this coming summer :-)

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 18, 2005
Off white head on a dark yellow colour. Feel vey fresh, on the bitter side. Malty and there is some citrus fruit there. Sour finish. Very drinkable on a warm day.

Floral hops and slightly bitter aftertaste. I prefer this to be poured on draft.

Really liked this one. Its has a little bitterness at first. Nice casual beer.

Bottle. Maybe I poured it too quickly, but that head was enormous. It stuck around for a bit, too. Aroma is good. Floral hops, a little piney and a tad sour from the citrus. It starts off bitter and dry with citrus and piney hops dominating. Let it warm and the hops mellow out and some smooth malts and caramel appear, allowing for a smooth and slightly dry finish. It’s a good staple beer.

This is a really nice beer. One that you can normally get many places so if this is one of the choices you can’t go wrong with it. It makes a strong showing in the pale ale catagory. Good color, great taste. Really a wonderful beer. I have never had it and wished I had picked something else.

stowenbrau (4) - Connecticut, USA - APR 8, 2005 does not count
UPDATED: APR 15, 2005 mild hops and some malt sweetness in aroma, pale gold in color with moderate beige head, mild fruity and spicy flavor with slight but crisp hop bite at the finish, soft smooth mouthfeel, on the whole, a very well balanced beer that i’ll take any day
