COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Hemmeligheden bag en god juleøl er at begrænse sig – der er så mange muligheder for at komme smag i brygget, at man hurtigt kan komme for meget af julens krydderier i. ‘The Pros and Cons of Christmas’ er en balanceret Brown Ale, med julen bagerst på tungen og den gode, runde Ale-smag forrest, hjulpet godt på vej af amerikanske og engelske humletyper, samt vores hjemmelavede maltsirup der er karamelliseret i 10 timer.
Indeholder: Byg- og hvedemalt, umaltet byg, vand, humle, gær og julekrydderier.

Vignale (1979) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 11, 2011
Flaska provad med ölföreningens julölsprovning. Tydlig doft av mörkt socker. Smaken närmast av bränt socker, lätt rostad kropp, bra humleprofil och balans. Märkligt ljus för att vara en brown ale.
