COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
To l Frost Bite is an American Pale Ale brewed with orange peel and pine needles. It is so frosty that it needs to be stored cold and may bite if you touch it. This beer is all about the balance (not the bass). Imagine the flavours of pine needles and orange peel. Now imagine the same flavours only represented by Aurora, Citra, Tettnanger, Simcoe and Amarillo hops. This hoppy dry mix of spices and hops makes for the perfect Winter American Style Pale Ale.

Ingredients: Water, barley malt (Pale, Cara Red, Munich, Pilsner), flaked oats malt, pine needles, orange peels, hops (Aurora, Citra, Tettnanger, Simcoe, Amarillo), yeast.

HuskerTan (1889) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - JAN 6, 2017
Bottle. A- Bready, caramel, pine, gummy, stone fruits. A- Orange color, hazy liquid, off white head. T- Bready, caramel, gummy, pine, stone fruit, mild bitterness. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, balanced finish. O- Ended up having this due to a mishap and also on a day where the temp is -31. I suppose that makes sense. Honestly, one of the more boring To Ol brews Ive had. A fair amount of caramel bread and gummy stone fruits, otherwise really nothing too special.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2017 @ Basunen 17-01-06: en ganska enkel och lagom Pale Ale med en krispig ton av grs och humle.

erickok (5695) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JAN 1, 2017
Copper, very hazy, very stable head. Light spice, very bready yet quite crisp. Some potpourri like aromas. Shortbread sweetness, foamy body, surprisingly light taste, even a touch watery. Quite original, especially for a Christmas brew. Well, within reason, its not that crazy. Nice though. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bire)

DialSquare (4674) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 22, 2016
On tap at Crest in Clintonville: Copper-orange pour, white head. Aroma of malty, floral, sweet tropical. Tastes are sweet biscuity malt, citrus resin, toffee, good balance, light bitter backing. Bit of tea vibe. Light dry finish.

varanid99 (1127) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 18, 2016
Cloudy, orange-gold pour with a fluffy white head which settles to about a cm and persists forever. Orange, mango, pine, malt aromas. Sweetish, orange, caramel, piney flavour, nice mild bitter finish

GoddamnNoise (93) - Pontevedra, SPAIN - DEC 17, 2016
33 cl. bottle @ Home - Aroma: very intense and nice aromas of mango, citrus, pine, tropical fruits, grapefruit, tangerine, orange zest. Hints of malts and some other aroma not very pleasant when swirled and warmed. - Appearance: light amber golden color with super huge, creamy and slightly off-white head. Hazy. Low-to-medium Brussels lacing. - Taste: low sweetness, medium bitterness, low sourness. Nice flavors of mango, tropical fruits, grapefruit, orange, pine, citrus. - Palate: low-to-medium body, watery-to-oily texture, medium carbonation, quite long dry bitter finish of grapefruit, orange peel, pine, resins, hints of tropical fruits. - Overall: nice appearance and aromas (but with hints of a not very pleasant aroma when swirled and warmed) of mango, grapefruit, tropical fruits, pine, citrus and very good taste with the same flavors. Quite long dry bitter finish of grapefruit, orange zest, pine and tropical fruits. Very pleasant, drinkable and refreshing. Maybe the citrus, grapefruit and pine flavors are too much noticeable and not well balanced. Not the best from To l but it is a good beer.

Butelka 330 ml. Bardzo przyjemne piwo. Piana duża, wysoka, puchowa; barwa bursztynowo-miodowa, lekko zamglone. W aromacie złożoność, jakby malina i inne słodkie owoce, żywica, skrka pomarańczy, przyprawy korzenne. W smaku dla odmiany wysoka goryczka. Fajnie pasuje na zimę, godne.

weordie (1037) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2016
Pours hazy orange with a big fluffy head. Aroma is sugary orange. The flavour is sweet orange with a bitter bite in there and a hint of pine on the aftertaste that I feel is a little out of place actually. Bit too carbonated for my liking too. Its a good beer but falls short of their usual standards.

Mjp12 (1617) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2016
Pours a hazy orange , with a thick foam head. Light hop aroma, the pine just about cuts through on the finish, but it doesnt have the flavour punch of most to ol beers .
