COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
ØLFABRIKKEN COLUMBUS PALE ALE is a tribute to the American Columbus hop, which we love so much at Ølfabrikken. The beer presents itself with astonishing pungent aroma of pine and grapefruit, which is coming back in the flavor, balanced by sweetness from British caramel-malt. The aftertaste is long and dry and characterized by hops bitterness. Serve it with creole food such as blackened fish and dirty rice with melted butter, homemade chili/raisin/apple chutney. Ølfabrikken Columbus Pale Ale is of course unfiltered, unpasteurized like all Ølfabrikken beers.

fiulijn (15371) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 11, 2007
Draught at Ølbaren, Copenhagen<
Beautiful red-mahogany color. Very nice hoppy aroma, fruity, a lot of apricots. Very good mouthfeel, good sweet caramel flavor and very good hopping, both fruity (bitter oranges) and resiny, leading to a long and strong final. And this with a reasonable alcohol content. Excellent.

Rune (8501) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2007
220ml draught at Lord Nelson, Copenhagen where the brew was served at a perfect drinking temperature. A thin ring of foam around the rim of the glass. Slightly hazy dark-red body. Aroma of bitter fruits and caramel. Quite well hopped flavour. Prolonged bitter aftertaste. Smooth and refreshing (01.08.2007).

yespr (32344) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 6, 2007
From tap at Ølbaren. Pours brown amber with a creamy off-white head. Sweet caramel malty and slight grany aroma, clear grape fruit hops note. Sweet fruity flavour with a nice caramel base beneath grape fruit hops. Nice strong bitterness in a dry finish. Nice, very classic Ølfabrikken.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - AUG 3, 2007
Draft at "Plan B", Copenhagen. An unclear red beer with a small creamy head. The aroma is dominated by hops with herbal and piney notes. The flavour is lovely with hops, good maltiness and again citric hops. The finish is quite bitter and remains in your mouth for a long time. A very good beer.

Draught @ Ølbaren, Copenhagen. Pours a clear reddish amber color with an off-white head. Has a hoppy malty citrus aroma. Sweet malty hoppy flavor with some citrus hints. Sweetish hoppy finish with a bitter aftertaste.

TBone (13002) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 28, 2007
Draught@SOPP 2007
Clear amber color, thick cloudy beige head, some lace. Intensive hoppy nose (cut grass). Mouthfeel starts sharp and metallic, iron is there all the way. Pale malts are subdued, green grass hop flavors are up in the aftertaste. Hints of barnyard too! Ok brew, but somehow components of it are not well-balanced as in "normal" Pale ale.
