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.

brnandersen (3169) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2016
Draught at Tap 10. Hazy, golden amber colour with a thin, white head. Fruity aroma with citrus fruits and caramel malts, floral hops. Slightly toasted notes. Taste is bitter. Medium body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes dry and bitter with citrus fruits and caramel malts. Nice APA.

Orangey colour with thin head. Biscuity, malty aroma and taste. Light hop bitterness. Perhaps some peachy sweetness in the finish.

Nonshaugen (371) - Fetsund, NORWAY - OCT 28, 2015
50 cl, bottle conditioned. batch #907, best before 09/16 so it’s reasonably fresh. Slightly hazy, dark orange golden, a lot of rolling carbonation, thin off-white head. Aroma is very fruity and hoppy, a hint of citrus and pine needles, not much malt aroma. Mouthfeel is dry, flavours are piny and citrusy hops. Again, I don’t find much malt notes to this. It’s a hoppy pale ale, American West Coast style in my opinion.

tbonde (289) - DENMARK - SEP 10, 2015
50 cl bottle@Olso hotelroom in small glass@approx 10 degrees C. Pours cloudy light brown with off white head with sufficeint retention. Fruity aroma, citrus and a little pine dominating the maltiness, which is also there. Very well balanced and complex hop bitter taste - more APA than anything else. More citrus, more spice and the malt also finally manifesting itself as it warms up a little. Texture and mouthfeel a little watery, but not bad for a ABV of only 4,5% - lots of taste and good balance.

Flaske fra nærbutikken. Gylden , disig farge. Moderat karbonert med enorm varig skumtopp. Smaket malt,korn,gress, sitrus ,furunål og tropisk frukt. En fornøyelig butikkøl

From bottle on board Fridtjofen 31.07.15. Cloudy orange. Foamy and persistent off-white head and lacing. Aroma of mango, papaya, other tropical fruits, citrus and pine shoots. Similar taste, balanced with malt and good bitterness of pine and grapefruit. Good!

jinroh (1053) - ESTONIA - JUL 8, 2015
Pours light amber, loads of foam that becomes thinner quite soon but lingers on quite long. Aroma is really metallic and plastic at first, not really nice.Taste is hoppy, light body, bitter hops. Not too special, works in sauna OK. Becomes nicer once it warms.

Nice copper color with medium head. The finish is slightly sour. American style pale ale that is lacking a little something that I can't put my finger on.
