COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pale Ale - is a pale, refreshing and aromatic beer with a fine malt profile from our English special malts. Generous use of fresh hops renders a zesty and delightful hoppy aroma and flavour. To be served at 8-10 degrees C. Bottle conditioned - unfiltered and unpasteurised, no artificial carbonation. (Not to be confused with the stronger Haandbryggeriet India Pale Ale.)

Kestral (506) - Årnes, NORWAY - MAY 18, 2009
Pours amber, small off white head. Aroma of citrus and floral hops with a solid dose caramel malt. Flavour is the same, but the caramel sweetness dominates, and the hops just balances and cleans up in a light bitter finish. This tastes more like an ESB than a pale ale to me. Not a whole lot going on, but refreshing and drinkable. A bit thin, could use more carbonation too.

500 ml bottle. Slightly cloudy amber color, creamy off-white head. Fresh pineapple aroma. Bitter hoppy flavor with more fruity notes, long finish. Pretty fun beer.
