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.)

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2007
Bottled. A hazy orange beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet hoppy which gives it notes of both grass and grapefruit, but also with a note of caraway seeds. The flavor is sweet malty with light notes of caramel, grass, and grapefruit, leading to a dry and rather bitter end. I find the body thin - maybe due to lack of residual sugars.

(Bottle 50 cl) Slightly hazy, amber golden with a small, off-white head. Fresh, citrusy aroma. Fairly light in body with a subdued caramel malt base before the citrusy hoppiness takes over also leaving a solid bitterness. A decent APA. 130507

Cloudy amber beer. Softish dry palate. Very frothy white head. A light malt base, slightly sweet with some caramel. Mildly bitter hops. Finishes frothy and dry. A bit fluffy for a pale ale, competent brew though.

fiulijn (15310) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 27, 2007
Hazy dark amber color. Hoppy aroma, earthy; leafy and fruity later; very nice. Thin (really too much) but smooth mouthfeel, dry caramel flavor and strong bitterness, a bit too astringent. The final is a bit harsh and dry as well.
