A-- Pours a clear golden straw color. Few carbonation beads showing after pouring. Two finger off white head. Quite nice and thick. Good body to the head. Slowly recedes to just under a finger and leaves a nice, thick, slightly soapy looking ring of lacing with this. Good beer to look at. S-- Toasted bread, Carmel, soft but apparent pine, orange and grapefruit. slight spiciness to this. Very solid backbone to this. T-- Warm toasted bread, good dose of Carmel, orange, and grapefruit. Soft but gnawing bitterness in the back of the taste. M-- Medium body, medium carbonation. Fruit really builds in the mouth. Straightforward but solid taste of orange and grapefruit. Touches of metal here and there that disappoint but a good long lasting finish. Slightly oily in front and mid but finishes bread dry with a good orange finish. O-- Are there better pale ales out there? Probably. Yet, have they been this consistent for this long a period? Probably not. Forgot how easy to drink this is and just what a good, solid beer it is. Just a classy beer as it is.

Una APA no muy compleja, destacando el lupulo y estando muy quilibrada con el caramelo. Mucha bebestilidad

Bottle on sale from Albert Heijn in Gorinchem, The Netherlands. The beer is deep golden to amber colored and has a large and sticky white foam, with very good carbonation. The aroma is malty with notes of caramel and very fruity with fresh hops, grass, flowers, citrus, pines and spices. The taste is medium bodied and starts sweet with notes of honey and caramel, and goes to medium bitterness with fresh hops from the aroma. The finish is dry and light bitter and short. Little watery but overall a very good brew.

PlutonowyMan (865) - Baardegem, BELGIUM - OCT 5, 2017
Kolor miedziano bursztynowy, klarowny. Na powierzchni piwa tworzy się sporych rozmiarów biała piana. Dość trwała, pozostawia sporo zdobień. Aromat bardzo delikatny, owocowy z nutami żywicznymi i trawiastymi. W tle nieznaczne akcenty karmelu. Smak bez wodotrysków. Podobnie jak w aromacie owoce, trochę żywicy i nut trawiastych. Gdyby nie fajna goryczka piwo niczym by się nie wyróżniało. Nasycenie średnie, pasuje. Piwo ma sporo ciała, jest gładkie ale jednocześnie lekkie. Bardzo zwykłe, niczym nie wyróżniające się Pal Ale.

Helder koperkleurig bier met mooie pareling en grote wand klevende ecru kleurige schuimkraag. Geur: moutzoetig, karamel, vleugje fruit. smaak: licht bitter, strak, wat metaal, wat karamel, beetje pompelmoes en wat kruidig. Goede koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: lang, licht bitter en kruidig.

Nastawiałem się na cuda na kiju - dostałem bursztynowego Pale Ale'a, który niczym nie przewyższa przedstawicieli rodzimego Kraftu. Jest cytrusowo, mamy średnią goryczkę i trawiasto-ziołową nutę. Dobry Pale Ale, ale nic poza tym.

Can. Amber pour. Nice pine hop aroma. Good bitterness but could be maltier. This is decent but what one would expect from a macro attempt at a micro offering. There are better out there at lower prices.
