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.)

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2008 50 cl bottle. Batch # 99. Hazy amber color. Nice white head. Very hoppy aroma. Flavor is hoppy with caramell malt and some fruit/flowers. Fine bitterness. Sadly it´s a little watery, but all in all a very drinkable beer.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 27, 2007
Hazy dark amber color. Hoppy aroma, earthy; leafy and fruity later; very nice. Thin (really too much) but smooth mouthfeel, dry caramel flavor and strong bitterness, a bit too astringent. The final is a bit harsh and dry as well.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 18, 2007
Pour was a cloudy orange with some brown highlights. The head was off-white and ample, but provided little in terms of lacing. The aroma is mild citrus, Wrigley’s spearmint gum, malt, floral hops, iced tea. The flavor was herbal, citrus, granite, some iced tea, and some floral hoppiness. The mouthfeel was nice and the finish was super dry.

Bottle at RBESG 2007. So hoppy, thinnish on the malts, but hot hop on the end. Superb.
