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

ej (782) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - FEB 12, 2013
Golden pour producing a slightly hazy body with a semi-diminishing white head. Inviting flowery, citrusy aroma with some malty caramel in the back. Crisp taste with medium to high bitterness and definite citrus in the taste. Caramel is still evident but rathes subdued, finish is bitter and semi-dry. Light body but smooth texture.

Jado (573) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - FEB 9, 2013
From a 500 ml bottle, the beer poured a clear darkish amber with golden highlights and a tight white head that persisted. Aromas of pine, tropical fruits and floral notes on the nose. The taste starts off with fresh fruit before a big hop bitterness comes in, but washes away in the back end that’s mainly biscuity malt. Seems like it wants to be an IPA, but just pulls back at the end. Surprisingly, the finish is light and clean; but there’s a really great aftertaste that lingers on the palate. Balanced, smooth and very refreshing. One of the best beers I’ve had so far this year.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 2, 2013
0.5 L bottle. An orangey amber body, covered by a spotty layer of blond bubbles. Honey-scented malt aroma, offset by a distinct grapefruity hop aroma. Medium body strenght. Taste is boldly bitter compared to the relatively low abv. Toasted, light caramelly malt flavor, and a mild citrus fruity hop flavor. Resinous bitterness linger in the finish.

Cool_Bond (1562) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - DEC 14, 2012
Smells good and almost wonderful. The taste is good but it takes something. The aftertaste is left for a while. Drinking this beer closer to Christmas might be wrong but so good it is. Could this be a double IPA, this would probably get top rating from me.
