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

oh6gdx (20239) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 20, 2007
Bottled (thanks Theis & Papsoe). Amber colour, big foamy head. Aroma is grass, fruity and flowery hops along with some mild spices. Flavour is really grassy and flowery hops with some bittery fruityness in the finish and aftertaste. Really dry palate. Once the yeast is poured in the flavour gets really smooth and cuts away the sharp grassyness.
