mcberko (15010) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - MAY 1, 2013
On tap at The Bishop Arms Folkungagatan, pours a clear golden blonde with a small white head. Aroma of cereal malts, straw and a little corn. Flavour brings out dry cereal malts, straw, corn and some crackery malts. Very light and refreshing, with a nice balance. Pretty standard stuff, but well-made for what it is.

Faint sweet malty hoppy smells, and i mean faint. Taste is sweet and inoffensive, watery and mild flavours. Almost boring but it is pleasant enough for a pint

3 months old bottle thx Alex for giving me this rating, youll probably end up regretting this later on. A: citrusy, light caramel, a touch of grapefruit. App: clear light copper smallish white head good lacing. T/p: med body with short to med bitter finish. Soft carbonation. O: ok, Im a retard and I speak french. Cool name! That said, this beer offer a classic feel of the style. I would compare it to a SNPA. Decent but I prefer the newer and Frutier type of APA.

Taste is bitter lemon,grapefruit ,tangerine,pine & some Bready ,biscuity malt.

Pours golden color, clear, almost brilliant, with long lasting white head. Aroma: intense hop notes which takes on citruses, hint of pine, peaches, supported with biscuit like malts aroma. Flavor is very similar, with biscuit, toffee like malt backbone, which is pretty well balanced wih hop notes, mentioned above by aroma. Finish is slightly dry, bitter and lingers in aftertaste. Body is moderate medium, texture soft, carbonation medium to high.

Tap at Highbury. Lovely hoppy nose with some stone fruit and grape notes alongside some faint citrus. Easy drinking with a well-balanced palate. Not overly bitter on the finish with a slightly soft mouthfeel. Very well done and enjoyable.

bartlebier (3555) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - SEP 16, 2016
500ml bb 12/2016. Bref: US-exotichopped bitter goes granulated peach ice tea. - The citric hop pellets almost grind between the teeth, giving off condensed hop oil doses to the point of granulated ice tea fruitiness (Tangerine, dried peach, sweet tea). Nevertheless pleasant candy drinking with a delicate malt base and plastic decadent edge. Hm.
