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.)

Albertsen (76) - Tromsø, - JAN 10, 2013
beautiful color, great fresh and white foam. Refreshing smell. The beer has a good bitterness that comes to you from the start. A hint of caramel is hitting me. A smooth pretty fast finish

Opaque golden yellow, off-white lacing foam head. Great hoppy aroma and bitter taste. Lasting bitterness in aftertaste. When this is a APA I would like to taste the IPA. (Oslo 201706)

Draft at Tap10. Aroma of overripe peach punch, grass, flowers Flavour or hoppy peach, grass, flowers. Light bitter. Long aftertaste of peach and light bitterness. Good.

Clear amber appearance with little head. Tastes of caramel, grass and hops. Medium carbonation, medium body and a fresh finish of caramely grass. Surprisingly good to be low alcohol

Icedwarf (1657) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - SEP 9, 2016
Fles 500cc, batch 907. Bruin bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is hoppig bitter en fruitig met iets van ananas en citrus. Erg goed.

Tjomleif (223) - NORWAY - AUG 23, 2016
50cl. Bottle. Nice creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly fruity, wet grain, yeast, hay, herbs, caramel, grass, hints of dried fruits. Taste is slightly dry, hay, wet grain, hops, caramel, grass, herbs, yeast, dough. Slightly watery mouthfeel, medium bitterness. Fair enough, far from a favourite.

Juniper bitterness? Besides that not so many characteristics. Serious foam! And deep amber colour!

Desverger (11448) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 15, 2016
[email protected], Copenhagen - Amber pour with white head. Fruity and malty with some nice citrus and tropical fruity notes, herbal piney hoppy notes, hoppy bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2016 Bottle @ NSB train from Oslo to Bergen ("Bergensbanen") as Haandbryggeriet Dresin (old rating of Haandbryggeriet Pale Ale was probably a bad bottle anyway, so I have chosen to delete this 2010 rating). Pours a slightly hazy golden-hued amber body with a medium white head. Nose is citrus, wet grass, pine, red fruits and hints of bread crust, caramel and nuts. Taste is pine, citric peel, grapefruit, apricot and hints of resin, wet grass, caramel and red fruits. Light to medium body, medium carbonation. Enjoyable APA for sure, with a fair amount of complexity and bitterness alike. Goes well enough on a lengthy train journey, but I find myself wishing for an NSB-commisioned imperial stout to go as a slow sipper with the beautiful scenic landscapes shifting outside. Oh well, maybe in 10 years or so: who knows? :-)

brnandersen (3903) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2016
Draught at Tap 10. Hazy, golden amber colour with a thin, white head. Fruity aroma with citrus fruits and caramel malts, floral hops. Slightly toasted notes. Taste is bitter. Medium body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes dry and bitter with citrus fruits and caramel malts. Nice APA.
