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.)

Pale Ale stile inglese. Colore ambrato aranciato con schiuma pannosa. Al naso profuma di malto ed un leggerissimo sentore di carruba. In bocca bilanciata verso l’amaro con sensazioni di miele, dattero e pompelmo amaro. Il corpo medio e la bassa gradazione alcolica la rendono molto beverina. Non stanca. Il finale è secco ed aromaticamente persistente. Bevuta in bottiglia.

Lovely smell of flowers as I pour, and lots of aromatic hops from the first sip. This is the best supermarket strength beer brewed in Norway! Like a premium English ale, with all the aroma squeezed from the ingredients. Pine/resin, tobacco, grass. If you like hops, this is a winner.

I love this beer, maybe it had something to do with finding it at a Grocery store for half the Vinmonopolet price, and then drinking it on an island in the Oslo Fjord, but I think this is a fantastic beer. Great hazy colour, nice head, big hoppy nose, great flavour. Great beer.

Bottle at RBESG 2007. So hoppy, thinnish on the malts, but hot hop on the end. Superb.

500ml bottle bought at supermarket in Oslo. One of my favourite "everyday-beers". Nice amber color, wellbalanced hops and refreshing aftertaste

Colore ambrato limpido , schiuma persistente . Molto presente l’odore di luppolo all’olfatto , presente , abbastanza prolungato ma non aggressivo l’amaro lasciato al palato... si sente molto il corpo leggero , infatti i suoi 4,5 % la rendono una birra estremamente beverina...

Ottima american pale ale, molto saporita, molto amara ma non cosi tanto da non farti sentire i gusti di frutta tropicale, molta schiuma e con un retrogusto davvero lungo e persistente!

A corker of a beer. Big froth which keeps on keeping on. Orange and spice and malt and then a lovely surprise of floaters at the end. A beauty.
