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.)

Mallucci (32) - ITALY - APR 6, 2010
Colore ambrato limpido , schiuma persistente . Molto presente l’odore di luppolo all’olfatto , presente , abbastanza prolungato ma non aggressivo l’amaro lasciato al palato... si sente molto il corpo leggero , infatti i suoi 4,5 % la rendono una birra estremamente beverina...

SirLimpsalot (3805) - SWEDEN - DEC 15, 2009
ärlig grumlig ”farg”. Den doftar gott, och värkar ha en god balans… den är ganska mörk för att vara en Pale Ale. Det värkar vara mycke jäst i denna. Tyvärr måste jag konstatera att den doftar mer än den smakar. Kanske är det bara jag som kräver för mycket (trots allt ligger min kärlek i lite mörkare öl som porter).

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - OCT 27, 2009
50cl bottle, Batch 198. Hazy dark amber, tiny pale head. Nose has lots of spritzy grapefruit lemonade, spiciness, sweet berries and ashy yeast, same as other Haanbrygs. Flavor has more of that yeast, making it a bit messy and stodgy, along with cranberries and red grapefruit, earth and dull yeast in the finish. Strongly foaming, lively yet smooth palate, not too light. This could be nice if fresh, I like the hop profile. But their house yeast still gives me the chills.
