Bottle. Pours golden amber with white head. Nose and taste of grassy hops, caramel, pine, resin, light earth and birch sap. Medium body. brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 4, 2011
A: The pour is amber in color with a couple fingers of white head that leaves some mild lacing on the glass.
S: A solid hoppy aroma right away. Juicy citrus with plenty of oranges and tangerines, perhaps some hints of grapefruit, too. A moderate amount of malt in there. Nicely balanced.
T: The citrus hop flavors open things up quite pleasantly. Plenty of tangerine and mild grapefruit along with some hints of pine which provide a little bitterness. Balanced with sweetness of bready malts.
M: Medium in body with a moderate level of carbonation.
O: This is very much along the lines of how I like my pale ales. Nice hoppy character without being overly bitter or malty. Dedollewaitor (16171) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 24, 2011

Pours clear amber with a creamy/bubbly off-white head. Aroma is nicely floral/fruit over mild roast malt. Med body. Flavor is moderately hoppy - fruit and floral over mild roast malt. The finish is definitely on the bitter side. Hop accumulates towards a slight burn. Good stuff. Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 21, 2011

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks zvikar. Hazy golden. Hoppy aroma, citric, fruity and slightly stale. Flavor has a bit of graininess and a bitter hoppy finish, a bit citric, with light stale notes. Medium-bodied. Seems slightly past its prime, but still decent and refreshing.

Bottle from Bottledog. It pours clear amber with a medium white head. The nose is soft, toasty, brown bread, wood and earth. The taste is smooth, toasty, grain, decent bitterness, light grapefruit peel and pepper with a crisp, dry finish. Light-medium body and fine carbonation. A bit watery if truth be told. Fairly inoffensive.
