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

On tap @ Cardinal.Nice golden color with a small white head. Rich aromas of citrusy hops and fruitiness. Great bitterness, somewhat more bitterness than the average pale ale. Great drinkability!

Jado (514) - 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.

Bottle 500ml at Biero. Nice and fruity. Aromas of peach and caramel, with hints of butter and citrus. Taste is sweet, with light bitter and sour notes, and average length. Palate is velvety, with a medium body. Dark yellow, with a frothy head.

stefannilssons (1458) - SWEDEN - DEC 19, 2011
Jag var väldigt imponerad av den här ölen eftersom det är väldigt mycket öl med tanke på den låga alkoholhalten. Smaken är lite svårdefinierad med många smaknyanser, kanske lite smultron, men främst är den besk och söt. Slutsats: spännande och imponerande.

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.

Lore (1039) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 2, 2013
hazy bright golden colour, huge long lasting head; aroma of citrussy hops with some resin, maltyness and sauerkraut; taste is dominated by hoppy bitterness (mostly resiny, but citrussy hops can also be felt), though malty sweetness is also present; far from being the best value for money beer, but it’s purely because of its high price :-)

tomer (1678) - 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.

50cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. Hazy golden orange colour, big dense off white head. Aroma of lots of fruity hops, citrus, grapes, grapefruit, pineapple, mango, lovely. Flavour is light sweet, dry malty, light floral, nice citrus and tropical fruit bitter hoppiness underneath and in the finish, ends dry. Light bodied. Very nice and refreshing beer.
