Aroma is lightly hoppy, light apricot, citrus. Taste is much like the aroma, lightly hoppy, with a fruity element to it, and nice lightly malted background.

One of my favorite "basic" beers. Easy to drink. Light yellow in color and similar taste (if that makes any sense). But unlike a lot of weak colored beers, this has a hop kick to it. Some banana esthers are also present. The malt isnt hidden by the hops.

on tap-pours a retaining thin off white head and gold color. Aroma is pine/spice hops, then medium malt-caramel. Taste is pine/spice/citrus-lemon hops, then medium malt-caramel. Finishes somewhat dry. OK carbonation.

bierkoning (12814) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - NOV 1, 2007
Bottle. Orange blonde color. Delicious aroma of grapefruit and red berries. Also grapefruit and red berries in the light but oily hoppy flavor. Fairly short aftertaste. Thinnish, but tasty.

Draught. Pours a mostly clear copper color with a thin white head. The aroma was citrus and light pine hops. Flavor was citrus and light pine hops with a medium sweet malt base. Dry finish. This is a solid yet unspectacular APA.

Always a good brew to have aroun home. Nice light copper color and fresh hoppy aroma. The maltiness is just in balance with the hops.

mtoast (336) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2007
12oz bottle, BBE 1/1/08. Pours a crystal clear bright golden color, stark white foam with subpar retention and almost no retention. Aroma is restrained Cascade hops and little hints of pale malts. Very easy to drink, slight notes of hops, decent malt backbone, a good but not great beer.

Perhaps more bitter than most other pale ales, but the flavor is very distinct and unique.
