Henrik Imperial Amber is brewed by Gahr Smith-Gahrsen and Kim Odland at Lervig Aktiebryggeri and was originally brewed at 8.1% and served on tap at Henrik Øl- og Vinstove, Bergen, exclusively.

kustie (94) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 13, 2013
Humalan tuoksu on melko voimakas. Erityisen pehmeä maku ja miellyttävä suutuntuma paistaa heti lävitse. Jälkimaussa on varsin paljon katkeruutta. Kuitenkin tasapainoinen maku, joka kehittyy mielenkiintoisesti alkumausta loppumakuun.

Draught @ Gastropub Nordic, Tampere. Pours a golden copper colour with a thick head. Aroma of sweet heavy toffee, grass, floral hops and hay. Flavour of heavy caramel malts, floral hops, grapefruit, grass and some berries. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel and a warming, sweet, lingering bitter finish. Alcohol warms nicely and gives a heavier body. Great.
