COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ægir var ølbryggjaren til gudane i den norrøne mytologien. Ægir Bryggeri tilbyr fleire ulike ølsortar - frå lyst til mørkt øl. Interessant er det at Ægir Bryggeri med hedensk tema no lagar eit tradisjonelt klosterbrygg. Dubbel vart som kjent opprinnleg brygga av munkar. Ølet er lysebrunt, lett fyldig og smaken minner om tørka frukt og krydder grunna gjærstammen. Nyt ølet saman med kraftige oster og noko robust mat eller åleine som koseøl.

English: Aegir was the brewer for the gods in Norse mythology. Ægir Brewery offers a number of beer types - from light to dark. Interestingly, Ægir Brewery with its heathen theme has now brewed a traditional abbey beer. Originally, Dubbels were brewed by monks. The beer is light brown in color, medium heavy with a flavor of dried fruits and spices from the yeast. Enjoy the beer with strong cheeses and robust food, or alone just for the pleasure.

Ernest (6216) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is cloudy dark amber. Aroma is lightly malty (cookie), with notes of eucalyptus, juniper, rosemary, Listerine, etc. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Rather off-putting medicinal nose...too much spice and not enough beer. Slightly better in the mouth, where it’s fairly balanced and creamy.
