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.)

Cocktus (35) - FINLAND - JUL 11, 2014
Hazy amber body with long lasting white head. Not very bitter as a APA but a lot of typical aromas from American hops. Pine needles, grass and a little bit of citrus. Nice carbonation. I liked a lot!

jmgreenuk (4922) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2014
Bottle from the Meny at Fosnavag, Norway. Poured a hazy medium amber with a frothy white head and some broken lace. The aroma is big citrus hop, pine needle. The flavour is medium bitter with a zesty citrus, light floral hop bitter, light pepper spice palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Like no other pale ale i’ve tasted, but it totally agrees with me!

Very cloudy in appearance, to much floral and citrus for me. Hard one to get through the lot of

Shuff (7) - - MAY 5, 2014 does not count
Very strong citrus flavor. Could only have a couple, otherwise you would be no good. Good looking like the Norwegian people

BrunoSanchez (140) - Fermo, ITALY - APR 19, 2014
Pale Ale stile inglese. Colore ambrato aranciato con schiuma pannosa. Al naso profuma di malto ed un leggerissimo sentore di carruba. In bocca bilanciata verso l’amaro con sensazioni di miele, dattero e pompelmo amaro. Il corpo medio e la bassa gradazione alcolica la rendono molto beverina. Non stanca. Il finale è secco ed aromaticamente persistente. Bevuta in bottiglia.
