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.)

Holmen1 (5885) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 11, 2016
Fra flaske (batch 964) NSB mellom Voss og Finse mai-16, 4 gentlemen gone beer hunting: uklar kobber med ok skum. Aroma og smak av gress, kvae, furunål, jordkjeller og litt bitterappelsin. Jordkjelleren var naturligvis i aromaen, ettersom jeg aldri har smakt på en jordkjeller. Ikke verdt prisen.

En flaske (batch 577) i godstolen mens Vivaldi med Anne Sofie Mutter og Trondheimsolistene strømmer mot meg: raffinert vellyd i øret og skjerpende godsmak i ganen. En fin kveld!

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!

gunnar (9094) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAR 21, 2016
Bottle on train from Kristiansand to Sandnes. Pours hazy dark golden with a small creamy off-white head. Aroma is malty with piney hops. Taste is light sweet toffee, with a good dry piney finish, good beer for a train journey.

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

Nonshaugen (613) - 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 (361) - DENMARK - SEP 10, 2015
50 cl [email protected] hotelroom in small [email protected] 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

jinroh (1597) - 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.
