Beer review: Nøgne Ø Pale Ale

Nøgne Ø Pale AleLooks

Hazy orange color with huge head. I was a bit careless (or should I say eager?) when pouring this beer. Anyway, the beer looks great!

Aroma

Lots of citrus and grapefruit in the aroma. There is also some malt present, but mostly hops.

Flavor

This beer has a very powerful flavor. There is a lot more taste than you would imagine after sniffing it.

More malts in the flavor than in the aroma, but still mostly hops. Lots of grapefruit.

A lovely carbonation level as well makes the beer very enjoyable.

Finish

Medium long finish with a nice level of bitterness.

Food matches (new!)

I have had great success with Nøgne Ø Pale Ale paired with medium spiced to hot pizzas and grilled sausages. I could easily have this beer along with other BBQ dishes as well.

Rating

This is a very good beer. Drinkable, refreshing, lots of taste … an overall great beer. Score: 4.2/5.

This was batch #563.
