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.

Picked this up at my favorite beer store in Belgium, Dranken Geers. Clear yellow-orange pour with a huge fluffy white three finger head with great retention and unbelievable sticky lacing. The nose is initially quite grassy with a touch of lemon, but opens up to some nice subtle citrus and pine notes along with some biscuity caramel malt. The taste is a bit bolder than the nose with lots of tangy citrus up front, eventually giving way to toasty caramel malt. The mouthfeel is creamy and smooth with a subtle tangy, bitter finish. A classic interpretation of a Pale Ale.
