Pours a clear, medium amber coloration with a medium, fizzy head. Smells of bready, caramel malt with a certain floral, herbal note and just a hint of pine. Taste follows the nose, being quite malty, but with a nice balance of bready, doughy, caramel malt and floral, herbal, piney hops. There's a strong presence of alpine herbs that is reminiscent of sage, thyme and fennel, with an underlying floral, grassy note as well. Not a lot of citrus coming through, but a bit of pine is noticeable as well. Finishes with a dry, light/medium bitterness. This is certainly a different, quite unique Pale Ale that doesn't seem to quite fit neither the English nor American definition, but is rather nice and refreshing in its own way. The Polaris hops really seem to take center stage here, with a strong herbal presence and almost no citrus and little pine coming through from the Cascade hops. This actually reminds me a bit of Almdudler, an Austrian soda that's flavoured with alpine herbs. I've had this quite fresh and would not expect it to hold up well due to its strong malt backbone and subtle hop flavour.

Elevated my score a bit to support German craft brewing. Still a very good pale ale in a world of pils

Dark orange color, quite hazy. A veil of foam.
Pleasant smell, malt, light caramel. Herbal hop, citric, grapefruit.
Good herbal notes, almost of alpine herbs.
Malty start in the taste, again light caramel, and a good hop, balanced.
Right body. Interesting the hopping, Cascade and Polaris.
Not very long aftertaste.

Orange color with white head. Really dank hoppy aroma. Taste is fresh and hoppy at first and gets pretty bitter in the finish and continues in the aftertaste. Really nice, well made pale ale.

From BeerAdvocate Magazine #90 (July 2014):

Bold, Orangey, Floral, Balance

A German brewed English Pale Ale that is hopped like an American Pale Ale, identity crisis ya think? We love German beer traditions but this seems like an attempt to join the American “craft beer” party. Strange. Regardless, this is one hell of a brew. Hoppiness comes from Polaris and Cascade hops, bitterness and flavors are pretty forward though the beer is balanced. Seek a bottle out.

A interesting brew out of Frankfurt in the style of an APA but with EPA heratige and 'Made in Germany' written all over it.
Pours a clear golden amber with a big bubbly white head that leaves some nice lacing.
Smells of pine and floral.
Tastes rather floral, with a little malt behind it. Though to me, it semed a little sour, but I say that is do to the bitter bite it has at the end. Not bad, not great. Good is what it is.
