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.

tlind2 (1602) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 11, 2009
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.

TBone (16191) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 8, 2009
Bottled (batch 198, brewed 10.12.08, BB 01/2010). Hazy amber color, good beige head. Piney and citrusy-fruity aroma, touch of yeast. Flavor is similar: fruity pineapple, citrus hioppy flavor with pale malty backbone. A bit thin finish. Refreshing summer drink and very nice to find this from Finnish grocery shop.
