Bouteille de 12 oz, rapporte par Suzanne. Armes de levure anglaise (esters fruits, touche de pain frais), lgre prsence houblonne. Robe cuivre et limpide, effervescence moyenne et belle mousse qui tient bien. En bouche, la levure anglaise est trs prsente, avec ses esters fruits et sont ct rappelant le pain frais. Le malt est lgrement caramlis, sans tre trop sucr. On remarque une lgre prsence de houblon fruit, mais cette bire est vraiment dficiente ce niveau pour une Pale Ale (et la bouteille est frache). Finale prsentant une amertume dintensit moyenne. Bof.

bsp77 (724) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 7, 2011
Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Nonic Pint. Appearance: Hazy amber with thin white head and just slight lacing. Aroma: Malty, with toast, caramel and butter, with just a very light citrus component. Taste: Buttery, toasted malts are dominant. There is a fairly strong bitterness at the end, but only very light citrus hop taste. Sharp aftertaste. Palate: Moderate carbonation with a fairly light body. Dry finish, but not in a good way. Overall: Pretty bitter for a Pale Ale, but they forgot the actual hop flavor. Plus, the malts simply arent very good. Unfortunately, this is not a good Pale Ale.

Pours a fading ring of beige head with a deep golden body. Aromas of malt and some floral hops. Flavor is caramel, malt, floral grassy hops. Finish is lasting malt sweetness.

ExpendableHero (889) - Florida, USA - APR 11, 2011
Hazy amber/orange brew with a decent white head. Aromas of hops, and mixed fruits. The taste is pretty simple: mild grassy hops, bits of floral hops mixed with hints of sweet grapefruit. Ends on a sweet, fruity note. Refreshing and quite tasty. The bottle art is solid.

I dont know, but it just didnt work for me. Decent malt, a bit of fruity hop flavor, but unbalanced, not a nice finish.
