Danish: Vores pale ale er brygget med inspiration i øltypen ”American Pale Ale”, som kendetegnes ved høj drikkelighed og brugen af god aromahumle. Og vi har da heller ikke sparet på humletyperne Cascade og Centennial, som både har været med under kogningen og i den efterfølgende tørhumling. De to humler giver i fællesskab en frugtig friskhed i både duft og smag. Her fornemmes både grapefrugt og fersken – og et lillebitte pust af fyrrenåle. Christianshavns Pale Ale står varmt ravgylden i glasset med en tæt, cremet og ganske blivende skumkrone, der efterlader en diskret blonde på indersiden af glasset, efterhånden som den langsomt lægger sig. Øllet har en middel fylde med en svagt sødlig maltkarakter, hvor et strejf af karamel fornemmes. Øllet rundes af med en let og tør bitterhed, der pirrer smagsløgene og skaber balance og harmoni. Christianshavns Pale Ale er en letdrikkelig øl, der kan – og bør – nydes i rigelige mængder.

English: Our pale ale is inspired by the style "American Pale Ale ", which is characterized by a good use of bittering and aroma hops. We have been generous in our useage of both the hop types Cascade and Centennial , as both have been involved in the boil and in the subsequent dry-hopping . The two varieties of dry hops give a fruity freshness in both aroma and taste. The taste is of both grapefruit and peach - and a tiny hint of pine needles.
Christianshavn Pale Ale is a feiry golden red in the glass with a dense, creamy and long lasting head, leaving a discreet blonde halo on the inside of the glass as it slowly settles . The beer has a medium density with a slightly sweet malt character , where a touch of caramel can be felt. The beer is rounded off with a mild and dry bitterness that titillates the taste buds and creates balance and harmony.
Christianshavn Pale Ale is a light alcohol beer so can - and should - be enjoyed in abundance.
Ingredients: Water, barley malt , hops, and yeast

The aroma is of grass, with a hoppy aroma and notes of peach. Flavor is hoppy with a nice bitter finish and of pines.

larsga (6684) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 10, 2008
Huge offwhite lasting head. Amber body with small particles and light carbonation. (This beer’s travelled for almost two weeks in my suitcase, and may be a little the worse for wear. Need to rerate.) Tropical fruit and bread aroma with citric hoppy floral notes. Dry-sweet resiny floral taste with tropical fruit and citrus notes. Slightly harsh mouthfeel. Dry ashy chalky aftertaste with metallic notes. Good, but perhaps a bit thin and harsh. (0.5l bottle, Irma, Kastrup.)

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - JUL 30, 2008
Hazy orangey golden, white lacing head. Smooth passion fruity nose, lots of grain and little yeastiness. Sharply bitter, simple grapefruity flavor, grainy malts. Simple, alright fruitiness, but this much grain is a bit off.

Pinball (11407) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2008
nice hoppy aroma, sweet tones. but could be a little stronger. unclear with very nice looking vanilla-white head. flavor is good, but perhaps a bit too one-dimensional. well brewed ipa no doubt. overall definetly one of the better IPA, but not one of the elite. it is sort of too "ordinary" to go beyond very good. it is extremely amazing they could get this much taste out of a brew at only 5.5% best (with no competition) ipa at that percentage i have ever had.

tomer (2163) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - MAY 2, 2008
0.5L bottle, shared with my brother who brought it from the source, thanks! Beautiful crystal clear orange colour at first pour though the end of the bottle was full of sediment, making the beer murky. Small fast diminishing head, aroma of mandarine, orange peel marmalade, white peach and some floweriness. Strong bitterness but not too powerfull, melding with some toastiness and caramel notes. Body is medium, aftertaste is long and pleasantly sweet and sour. Another excellent pale ale.

Miksu (5027) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - APR 24, 2008
0.5 l bottle at Helsinki Beer Festival 2008. Orange color with small head. Very fruity aroma with orange, pineapple and green apple. Tart fruity flavor with tropical fruits as well as some biscuity and grainy notes. Firm bitterness in the finish. Maybe not the freshest bottle, the hop aroma and flavor seems to be low and not so fresh.
