COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 24, 2009
In short: A fruity and floral pale ale with a problematic fruity sourness (bad batch?)
How: Bottle 500ml. Age unknown but consumed relatively fresh months before best-before date.
The look: Cloudy dirty blonde body topped by a long-lasting small white head
In long: The enjoyable flavours are grainy malts, pineapple juice, grapefruits juice, garden flowers petals, some honey and a little lemony touch. This could be some kind of refreshing fruity floral pale. But there’s also problematic flavours. An annoying acidic sourness that is halfway between sour grapes and past due-date breakfast juice. To me it felt like a fucked-up batch (or bottle) more than a bad recipe. Too many problems with this beer, go to hell, you’ve been a bad Christianshavn.

Ober (2813) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2009
A clear golden colored beer, with a thick foamy white head. The aroma is hoppy, with a lot of fruits like citrus. It’s malty. The taste is hop bitter, fruity like citrus and grapes with malts and some spices. The aftertaste is dry bitter with small sweets.

odgaard (382) - Skyum, Thisted, DENMARK - APR 11, 2009
Hazy amber color with a small lasting head. Aroma: Citrus, fruit, caramel, banana. Taste: Good balance. Very hoppy but it has some sweetness and some caramel to balance it. Good one - would be great in the garden on a sunny day.

probstblueribbon (3652) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 30, 2009
50 cl bottle from Bieropholie, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. FE20/09.

App.: Hazy deep golden with a decent white froth. Aroma: Quite tangy (infected??), light citrus and biscuit, cherries, raspberries and blueberry, honey and a little caramel; some light grapefruit hops, grass and hay. Palate: Medium body, moderate effervescence with some sharp bubbles. Flav.: Still fairly tangy, some tart fruitiness, some earthy hops, apple juice, peach/apricot; slightly tart with some bitterness.

Is this right??

MartinT (9063) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2009
My Bottom Line:
Furtive citrusy tartness burdens this well-rounded Pale Ale, taking leafy hop resins and honeyed cereals into a juicy territory that hints at yeast issues every sip or so.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam sits atop the hazy dull blond.
-Balance is achieved even though that strange fruitiness nags at the end of every sip.
-Carbonation is soft, making this quite drinkable (shame it’s almost vinegary in the finale).
-I’d describe the bothersome fruitiness as spoiled pineapple juice.
-This is the first Amager beer I get which is problematic, so I hope to try this beer again to truly taste what it can offer.

Bottle; best before 07/2009. Batch 112.
