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.)

DSG (11399) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks Stas. Hazy deep gold. Aroma of stale malt and hops, yeast and overripe fruits. Flavor has a bit of sweetness, graininess, stale malt, stale hops, yeast and some fruitiness. Light to medium-bodied, over-carbonated. Seems too old.

Smakt hjemme I ølglass. Tydelig ufiltrert utseende. Fruktig lukt og smak. Flott bitterhet. Et veldig godt butikkøl.

metalspice (611) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - NOV 7, 2014
Uklar brun/Orange med høyt skum. Lukter grapefrukt og fersken. Smaken lever ikke opp til duften. Har en vannaktig bitterhet som avsluttes med et hint av nøtter.

aleksander9 (1293) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 21, 2014
Hazy amber with white head. Good lacing. Aroma is fruity yeast, tea, ripe apples and some boiled vegetables. Faulty bottle? Nice and fruity palate. Aftertaste is citrus, green hops and some caramel in the end. Overall: Bottled 20.06.14. Weird to see so many different experiences.

Bottle. Light hops and citrus aroma. Dark, golden colour. Tall, brown white head. Slightly prune. Low carbonation. Watery and not too interesting.

Maakun (3446) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2014
Amber with fluffy off-white head. Fruity with lemon and grapefruit and light apricot. Caramel malt and herbal notes. Light sweet with bitter finish that slowly builds. Medium bodied. Decent ale with good aroma, doesn't feel like 4.5 abv and not really dry. Not really that special though.

MichaelAwesome (6403) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 29, 2014
Feines, fruchtiges Ale mit ordentlich Hopfen und einiges an reifen Zitrusfruechten wie Pfirsich und Orangen. Zum Schluss unangenehm bitter, dabei jedoch weiterhin lebendig und mehr als erfrischend.

McTapps (6421) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - JUL 27, 2014
Bottle from trade with Cunningham - many thanks, Henrik! The beer pours out in a hazy golden-amber colour with steady big head and smooth body. Aroma of fresh hops and oranges with some light malty hints. Taste of hops, light malt, spruce, grass, thyme, herbs, oranges, wild flowers and light caramel. Easy drinkable with a bitter finish. Nice beer.
