COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Vinter Ale er en varmende, mørk og kompleks ale brygget uden smålig hensyntagen til letdrikkelighed, ædruelighed eller anden utidighed. I glasset præsenterer den sig dunkel og saftig med heftig aroma af mørk malt, rugbrød og citral humle. Eftersmagen er lang og bitter og alkoholen livsageligt varmende. Nyd den temperet omkring 10 grader af et stort glas og giv den tid til at varme dit bundfrosne indre. Indtaget i større doser har denne øl dokumenteret effekt på vinterdepression, lommesmerter og anden dårligdom. Ingredienser: Vand, malt (ristet byg, belgisk og britisk karamelmalt, chokolademalt, pale ale malt), gær, alm. hvidt sukker, kandis, kaffe, laktose (mælkesukker), humle (Northern Brewer, Cascade, Centennial, Galena, Chinook).
