COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our flagship beer is based on a turn-of-the-century recipe that quenched the thirst of miners during the Klondike Gold Rush. Smooth and richly malty, this altbier goes well with any meal.

Maria (9963) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUL 19, 2008
Courtesy of Fonefan. The color is red amber and the head is creamy. The aroma is fruity and spicy with notes of malt and caramel. The flavour has a light sweetness, notes of malt, caramel, fruit, spices, a little nuts and candy sugar. It’s OK, but at the same time a bit ordinary.
