A slightly hazy amber brew, a low off-white head with little lacing and small curtains.

Smelling of lemon, lime peel, nuts and a hint of dust.

Tasting of sweet brown bread, lemon, apples and orange peel.

Little carbonation, soft texture, refreshing and with a dry finish.

Nothing really outstanding, but very balanced, a hint of metal.

The color is a hazy shade of amber and the head is 2 - 3 fingers thick.

The smell is very hopy with grass and citrus, kind of aggressive.

The taste is full of hops, grape, grass and more bitter hops at the end. Lots of character there.

The mouthfeel is very refreshing. I want an other one!

Mondiale 2009. This one really hit the spot, and I have liked this brewery in the past. Some hop aroma. Very cloudy grapefruit colour, with white head, and leaving noticeable lace. Lots of white lace, carbonation is suitable. Good bitterness, orange flavour integrated which is what I want and need from a pale..

Clear, light gold in color. Modest off-white head.

Aroma was hoppy - pine. Hint of caramel. Some grass. On an unpleasant note - cardboard - not heavy, but there.

Hops primary taste, with a bit of caramel and bread. Nice lingering finish to the hops. Well balanced. Nothing in the taste to reflect the cardboard in the scent.

Medium bodied, with low to medium carbonation. Nicely drying.

Quite good, would have again. Easily sessionable. Only flaw would be the cardboard scent.

The colour is clear amber; the white head is firm and two fingers thick.

The generous smell got balanced notes of bitterness, fruits, butter and a chemical touch.

The taste is refreshing and a bit sweet with a relatively mild maltyness that develops into a fine bitterness with lots of aroma hops and a finishing bitterness. The long lasting aftertaste evolves round a set of different aromatic and bitter hops and a slight sweetness.

The carbonation is refreshing, but not too strong with small bubbles.

This is very drinkable ale with a complex, rewarding mix of hops.
