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.)

Thick, fluffy off white head, golden body, Hoppy aroma of grass and pine needle. Taste of bitter fruit and some caramel. Crisp. Maybe too much carbonation for some.

Veldig godt øl. Fantastisk god og frisk smak. Lett-drukkent og leskende. Anbefales!

DSG (7485) - Tel Aviv, - 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.

pours a beige head on an amber body. light bubblegum aromas on top of light hops and indeed some citrus. pleasant palate and not bad but not exceptional in any aspect.

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

metalspice (194) - 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 (621) - 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.
