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.)

Rune (7953) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 24, 2008
Two 500ml bottles (batch 141) bought at Fenaknoken in Oslo and shared with some friends in Tromsø watching Spain vs Italy in Euro2008 on TV-HD. Bubbly, off-white head topping a slightly hazy, orange coloured body. Bready malt aroma with hops behind. Caramel malts in flavour mixed with hints of apples and citric hops. Dry bitter ending. A bit watered mouthfeel, but still a pleasure to drink (22.06.2008).

steinarja (5) - NORWAY - APR 29, 2008 does not count
The aroma has a good malty and hopy flavour, maybe some hints of caramel. The color is amber, but its a litle unclear. Litle foam, that disapeared fast. The taste was a litle disapointing after the wonderfull aroma that it had. But it wasnt bad. Overall it vas a good beer.
