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

DraftDodger (846) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 15, 2016
Copenhagen 15/4 2016. 50 cl bottle from Føtex. Ancient street view from Christianshavn (I assume) on the label. Pours slightly hazy yellow with white head. Settles as 1 cm thick layer of foam. Moderate lacing. Aroma of citrus fruit - Sweet oranges and tart grape fruit. Some exotic fruit in there as well. Medium carbonation and slightly thick palate. Taste is rather bitter - without going to extremes. Balanced by fruity sweetness. Aftertaste is bitter and lingering. Nice enough bitter APA but not extraordinary compared to some of their more extremely hoppy versions.
