look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: It has a nice deep hazy orange color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately and leaves some lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of floral hops, citrus, grapefruit, some pine, caramel and biscuity malts.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some floral hops, faint citrus and grapefruit, a piney/grassy bitterness, sweet caramel and biscuity malts.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas.

Poured from a 750ml bottle. Lots of yummy cereal and spice notes on the nose. Yep, by "Americaine" they mean hopped-up. The billowing white head is enormous and the beer is clear orangey-copper. All the hops promised in the nose is delivered in the mouth--tons of citrus rind and exotic spice. Still pretty well balanced. An excellent pale ale that almost drinks like a low ABV IPA.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured from a 375ml. bottle, bottled 06/2012.

Appearance: Honey colored body with a massive head that is neither slow nor fast and leaves spotted lacing all around.

Smell: Leafy, floral hops, citrusy (think lemon) and fresh-cut grass.

Taste: White grapes, grassy and ever so mild grapefruit. Nice orange notes in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Easy to take bitterness (read: low) and ends very clean and abruptly. The feel doesn't linger very much.

Overall: Disappointed with this one. Billed as an American pale ale, i would expect more guts to it. I've had APAs that weren't aggressive but were better than this. It's ok but you can do better.

750ml bottle. Yet again, one of those shitty, impossible to open corked bottles, until you break out the pliers from the storage room - boo!

This beer pours a hazy, dark reddish amber hue, with two fat fingers of chunky foamy off-white head, which leaves some sparse spider web lace around the glass as it sulks away.

It smells of sharp caramelized malts, a bit of hearty menthol, and strong leafy, grassy hops. The taste is hefty bitter, herbal hops, warm pale malt, and a weird lurking booziness, given the proclaimed standard strength ABV.

The bubbles are here and there, and generally non-consequential, the body an understated medium weight, and not all that smooth, given the strange swirling indistinct and zingy new-world spiciness.

Wow, what a mind-fuck of a beer. Here I'm expecting a mellow, slightly hoppy pale ale, but instead I get a weirdly spicy affair - askew without the heat or alcohol, if you can imagine. Not really what I wanted right now, I guess.

A pleasant surprise! Purchased after Mondial in June and should probably not have been stored this long, but waiting for "a special occasion" and it has held up remarkably well.

Orange-hued amber with decent cappuccino-coloured head. Mouthfeel is decent, but unremarkable. Aroma of caramelized malts and citrus hop elements is really nice, but unfortunately these same hop flavours don't translate into the taste.

Flavour is pleasant, but not as well balanced as I'd choose. The finish is sharp and bitter, without the anticipated tropical fruit. Would have liked to try this fresh, as if it has sweetened and/or mellowed with age, it must have been quite a beast to start!

Bottle from Broue HAHA. From notes.

A - Poured bright. Gold to dark gold with strong carbonation and a two finger off white head. Very loose head with soapy bubble bath appearance. Good half finger of retention with good chunks of lacing.

S - Pine and crackers. A little floral. Strong pine.

T - Pine and a little caramel with creackers and citrus. Grapefruity. More complex than the aroma.

M - Apropriate carbonation, should be a little more bitter with just about none there. Medium body.

O/D - Quite nice. No complaints, just a good APA.

750ml corked & caged bottle purchased from Adelaide Bier Shop and split 3 ways, with my share poured into a 7oz glass. Have been sitting on this for some time - would not be surprised if it was a year or year and a half - so hop fade was a pre-opening concern.

Pours an orange copper colour with a beige head of tiny-bubbled foam that has a touch of light yellow about it. Plenty of foam present and it stays around for quite a while.

Initial aroma is of citrus and a touch floral. After opening the smell is pretty hard to come by.

Taste is quite herbal on the mid to late palate with a herbal bitter kicker at the end. Upfront there is some burnt caramel flavour. Some malty sweetness also comes in as it warms.

Mouthfeel is quite big compared to style and from what i expected. Some harsh bitterness finishes this one off.

Overall, i suspect that age was not its friend, not should it be. If that isn't the case it was a pretty average APA.

Holy Moses this corks really in here!...

A: Pours a copper shade with a foam head that quickly recedes to semi-creamy looking blanket. A foam ring sticks around on-top while I enjoy this.

S: Biscuity malts, sweet toffee/caramel, floral notes, tart grapefruit, and picking up a faint nut aroma. Very nice with well balanced aromas.

T: Similar to smell with roasted malt notes, bitter floral hops, and that pleasant syrupy toffee taste. Follows with tart grapefruit and also some clove spice. Finishes a little on the dry side, but overall a very well balanced APA.

M: Slightly oily and creamy mouthfeel with about average carbonation.

D: Delicious. Could easily drink this all night, and certainly worth a try. Definitely worth the effort put forth in de-corking this!

This brew pours a toffee hue with nice carbonation that leaves behind a fast receding two finger head that reforms to a nice rim,the smell is definately bittersweet but mostly sweet with aromas of orange zest,honey,paw paw,caramel and toffee,it has a light-medium bodied mouthfeel which is averagely carbonated and has tastes of caramelized malts,ginger snaps,caramel,toffee and finishes with a nice citrus bitterness that is quite bitter and takes away those sweet tastes pretty fast and overall its a nice drop that probably wouldnt buy again at the price but would not knock back if on tap or offered.

I think other reviews of this beer have been too generous.

Its a very nice looking beer, a dark copper hue with a creamy head. It definitely looks like it will be tasty.

The smell really dashed my hopes, however, as it has a distinct metallic, earthy nature. I think the fact that its slightly sweet (and oddly sour) means I must be smelling the malt. No hops smell at all. Which is disappointing considering this is supposed to be an American Pale Ale.

The taste follows suit, but isn't quite as disappointing as the smell. It almost tastes like drinking liquid bread. The malty character is strongly opposed by the bitter hop flavour. I definitely wasn't expecting the bitterness since the hops are absent from the nose.

Thankfully the beer feels quite good while drinking it. The carbonation level is just right, and it has a nice balance of oily and dry finish. I dunno. Maybe I'll try it again, but only if someone else is buying.

750ml Bottle

Appearance - The beer pours a clear copper colour with a large frothy beige head. There is a low to average amount of carbonation showing and there is some very nice lacing on the sides of the glass. The head lasted for over 5 minutes before it finally started to go away.

Smell - hops, caramel, biscuits, herbal/floral notes

Taste & Mouth - The beer has a nearly perfect mouth feel, just the right amount of carbonation that leaves the beer feeling creamy and light. The most noticeable flavours are hops, caramel, and pale malts. There are also notes of biscuit, and some pine. The beer finishes with a malt and hop bitter aftertaste.

Drink - A fairly good brew that I'm happy I tried. The type of hop flavour in this beer is not my favourite, but it's still enjoyable. This beer is worth seeking out.

Serving type: on-tap
