Pandan Ale represents a major advancement in Asian style beers. It is a complex brown ale brewed with crystal, chocolate, and honey malts. We have also given it a Southeast Asian flair by adding palm sugar and pandan , a nutty and fragrant leaf. Pandan, also known as bai toey (Thai) and l dua (Vietnamese), is considered an essential ingredient to Southeast Asian rice dishes and cakes. This is a truly unique and flavorful beer that you will enjoy. Pandan Ale is a dark, full-bodied beer that will complement spicy Thai and Indian curries, as well as savory Filipino and Indonesian stews.

Clear dark brown beer. Semi soft and semi dry palate. Very slighty tangy malt with a dry chocolate - herb taste on the back of the tongue. Easy drinking and unusual beer.

Im Abgang zudem sehr interessant aromatisch, desweiteren slich-rstig. Sehr intersssant! Vielen Dank an den Doppelbock fr das Bier! 7/11/12/11/7/11

Oakes (16949) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 7, 2008
Slightly hazy chestnut colour. Nutty aroma with something a little strange - pandan leaf Im assuming. Full-bodied for a brown. Great nutty flavour. Some quality depth in the malt, too.

bhensonb (14881) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 26, 2009
Bottle from Liquid Solutions. Pours a very dark brown with a three-finger beige/tan head. Aroma is spicey/nutty. Near medium body with mild carbonation. Flavor is roasted malt with some sort of earthy flavor. Rather different - like green/earth. Finish is fairly clean, and definitely not sweet. Not all that bitter either. But the interesting flavor is enough to make this a very tasty beer.

hopscotch (10983) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 5, 2008
Bottle... GIABMISGFAB... This beer rocks!... Clear, dark caramel-colored ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. The nose offers a caramelized foundation with sweet, rich notes of roasted almonds, hazelnuts and milk chocolate. Full-bodied with a whole-milk mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Sweet, nutty flavor... richest brown ale Ive ever tasted. Finishes like it began; sweet and nutty. Kudos to Beershine and Oakes for hauling this world class brown ale to the island with them!

sebletitje (9908) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 13, 2010
courtesy of goodzoid10 pours brown, off-white head, effervescent. aroma, funky leafy, nutty, caramel, unusual but interesting. flavor, palm sugar definitely adds a refreshing palate, fruity, apple like, leafy/herbal mouthfeel with a nice and mild nutty palate. Medium carbonation. As the beer warmed up, the whole butty, palm sugar and pandan leaf became more prominent. Worth the try and nice use of ingredients I wasnt expecting to see in a beer.
