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.)

Acid303 (406) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - JUL 7, 2013
50cl bottle, served in Shaker. Pours dark orange with white frothy head, small but lasting. The aroma is a blend of orange peel, lemon and yeast. The flavour is quite fruity, with lots of citrusy notes added as well. Dry palate. Medium body, perfect carbonation. Nice APA, actually sweeter than the average, but still great. Very refreshing in summer.

Eructoblaster (3015) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 10, 2013
Bottle - 500ml. Beautiful hazy amber body with a thin white foamy head. Enjoyable hoppy aroma with malty and grapefruit hints. Its sharp hoppy taste carries citrusy and mango notes. Ends with a decent bitter finish. Good job!

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 Old rating rerated 07.06.2013, 0,5l bottle @ home:
Nice creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly fruity, wet grain, yeast, hay, herbs, caramel, grass, hints of dried fruits. Taste is slightly dry, hay, wet grain, hops, caramel, grass, herbs, yeast, dough. Slightly watery mouthfeel, medium bitterness. Fair enough, far from a favourite.

I love the hazy orange color almost as orange as the label. Too bitter for my wife means i get to drink this in peace, and for being a store bought beer in Norway it's pretty great.

Holmen1 (2467) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 16, 2013
En flaske (batch 577) i godstolen mens Vivaldi med Anne Sofie Mutter og Trondheimsolistene strømmer mot meg: raffinert vellyd i øret og skjerpende godsmak i ganen. En fin kveld!

Snegurochka (389) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 24, 2013
500ml bottle at Rating Session 26.Oct.2011. Kindly shared by Rune. Thanks! Pours a copper coloured body with lasting foamy head. Hops, pineapple, orange peel and pine to the nose, also mirrored in the taste. A bit sticky, but still a pleasant experience.
