COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Engelsk i stilen.Brygget af det bedste engelske byg- og havremalt.Flot gylden farve.Er karakteriseret ved en frisk og frugtagtig duft og smag.God fylde og dejlig blødhed i smagen, som stammer fra havremalten.Fint strejf af Amarillo-humle, som giver en dejlig aromatisk og tilpas bitter eftersmag.Pale Ale kan absolut nydes som den er, men er også en dejlig ledsager til god og gerne krydret mad.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 25, 2011
0.5 L bottle from Vinmonopolet. Two fingers of creamy blond foam on top. Body is near-clear deep yellow, with a golden glow. Clean malt aroma. Fairly dry, lightly toasted. Nice smell of flowers and mild spices from the hops. Taste is balanced and hormonious. Gently sweet, medium strong malt body. Lightly toasted, with a pleaseant sourish tone and a note of barley grain. Properly hopped. Flowers and grass, faint apricot and earth tones. Also a fair amount of bittering. Healthy body. Slick in the mouth. Nice all over.

Palme (3591) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 22, 2011
0.5l bottle. Pours a cloudy orangecopper body with a big creamy off-white head leaving big lacing down the glass. Aroma is really nice with strong notes of fruity hops. Also some citrus, pale malts and a light sour note in there as well. Really nice aroma for a pale ale. Medium-bodied, oily to watery mouthfeeling and average carbonated. Nice and malty flavors with some grassy hops, light hints of alcohol and it ends nicely with a mild watery finish, leaving a nice medium bitter and grassy aftertaste. Quite nice one.

larsga (6323) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 12, 2011
Medium offwhite head. Clear pale amber body with carbonation. Fruity earthy toffee aroma with pea notes. Dry-sweetish earthy peas and grain taste with fruity spicy notes. Light body. Fizzy mouthfeel. Dry spicy herbal tropical fruit aftertaste with wooden earthy notes. Faint minerals, too. Interesting mix of the austere and the lushly tropical. (0.5l bottle, wine monopoly.)

Rasmus40 (11988) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2011
Clear golden with a white head. Aroma is sweet, malty and moderate hoppy - fruity. Flavor is medium sweet and light bitter. Light bitter finish. Good balance. 270511

Jaksmart (447) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2011
Hazy orange color, small white head. Aroma has broccoli, vegetables, honey, wort and oatmeal. Very organic and full of flora. Some bread, malt, kitchen yeast and some hops in the back. Not very charming. Taste is dry with more sourness than bitterness. Maybe it’s just an old bottle.

ClubGonzo (4238) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 20, 2011
Bottle. Hazy deep honey color, medium white head. Nose is pale malts, some uncanny canny hints (sorry, just had to :-P) and citrus. A bit strange, overall. Taste is pale malts, hints of citrus and grass. A bit low on flavor, and could also be fresher; despite a substantial grassy hop bitterness it still ends up feeling a bit too sweet. An OK pale ale, but vastly overrated and nothing that really tickles my pickle. Besides, the price is just ridiculous: 79 NOK (around 15 USD at current rates) for a mediocre 5,9 % APA is just lunacy, even for *Norwegian* standards... :-S Someone is making a lot of profit here; whether it’s the brewery or importer I don’t know but since the profit margin for Vinmonopolet (the state-owned strong alcohol monopoly store chain in Norway) it’s not the last end of the chain, at least. Definitely won’t buy again.

jikvig (269) - NORWAY - APR 30, 2011
Quick-review: A nose dominated by citrus, caramell an a little acidic malt. A fruity flavour with a good caramellmalt in the back. A balanced bitternes, not very full bodied but a decent beer.

RasmusOtt (1257) - Aalborg, DENMARK - APR 21, 2011
Pours golden with off white head. Malty aroma with some honey in the background. Light vegetables and some hops. A bit acid in the taste, light sourness, orange peel, hops, dryness and some weird yeast.

Beer4000 (4617) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 20, 2011
500 ml bottle. Hazy golden body with a fine, big, dense white head. Aroma has citric, caramel and malt and some acidity. Flavor is malt, caramel, fruit and balanced bitterness. All in all a well brewed and fine balanced beer. Nothing outstanding, but sometimes this is just what you need.

bax (1173) - Hasselager, Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 18, 2011
(Bottle 17/4-2011) Low head, but high CO2, a bit thin in the taste. 1 week after BB date.
