When pouring, a huge storm of bubbles rise up from the bottom of the glass, big head, dark blonde colour. Not a lot in the nose, something biscuity, hints of orange.
On first sipp mainly hoppy bitterness, once again the bicuits are there, just the faintest hints of orange. The taste reminds me a bit of the smell spruce trees, not the most pleasant thing.
On the thin side, could use a bit more carbonation.

This is the kind of beer that reminds I'm Belgian, for me this beer lacks balance, there's nothing wrong with bitterness, but as far as I'm concerned you need something to fight back a bit.

Wonderful fruity, refreshing aroma and taste. Much like kiwi fruit. Very delicious and easy drinker with good lingering bitterness that's not overwhelming.

Amber color, cloudy (unfiltered). A lot of sediment - pour slowly and DON'T drink this one out of the bottle! Creamy, malt flavor with only a slight bitterness. If it didn't say "pale ale" on the bottle I never would have guessed it. Not bad.

Probably my favorite pale ale. It's got 40 IBU and 6% ABV. This is a great beer to pair with entrees or desserts, provided it's a lighter dessert. The bitterness in this beer is present in the aftertaste and is due to a pretty good amount of hoppy flavor. If you're not looking for anything that tastes malty at all (which is why you'd be drinking a pale ale in the first place) then this is your beer!

Bottle into tulip

Appearance - Darker orange, cloudy, 1 finger off white head

Smell - Sweet citrus, malts, floral pine notes.

Taste - Bittersweet citrus, some grapefruit, orange, lemon, continues on bringing forth some roasted qualities in the beer, slight bread, pine.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied, medium carbonation, crisp

Overall - Good beer. Recommendation from a good friend to try Nogne as he just recently visited the brewery.
