Danish: Denne øl er en Altbier, en historist øl fra Rhindalen i Tyskland. Høstbryggen er kobberfarvet med en tydelig karamelagtig sødme. Meget blød og rund i smagen og moderat bitter. Kan serveres til grillet eller braiseret okse- og kalvekød og er også god sammen med rodfrugter. Bør serveres ved 8-10 grader.

English: Brewed as an Alt Bier this beer has its historical roots in the Rhine valley, Germany. The colour is copper; the taste filled with notes of caramel and almonds is soft and round with a moderate bitterness. Brøckhouse Høstbryg (Harvest Brew) goes well with grilled meats and heavy vegetables. Best served at 8-10 degrees celsius.

Altbier is not exactly the type of beer I enjoy most of. This is probably because they are not so common on the supermarket’s shelves and it’s really a shame, because often they are very tasteful and nice frothy. And just the foam is also quite impressive on Brøckhouse’s Altbier. Unfortunately I think many expect a different type of an ale named Høstbryg (English: Harvest Brew), so here I will advise consumers to read what the label says, because the back label tells us clearly that this is an altbier and also tells what I should expect of the content. But I think that Brøckhouse is a little hesitant the praise on the back label. It does not mention that great impressive foam renewable forms nice foam. It does not mention the wonderful aroma, with a touch of flower, crisp caramel notes and some chocolate. Brøckhouse have chosen to describe the taste as a distinct caramel sweetness with soft and round fullness and moderate bitterness. To this I can only add superlatives as stunning, expertly and excellence. Brøckhouse can and should spend much more laudatory words to describe this delicious ale. There are still many words of praise that can be used in speaking of exaggeration.

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2007 Bottle. Pours clear red amber with firm creamy off white head. Not too many bubbles. Aroma is sweet with caramel. Taste is initially sweet with fruity character - then turns instantly into something quite bitter.

Bottle. Orangey copper with a good creamy offwhite head. Aroma of milk chocolate and yeast, followed through to the flavours. Somewhat sweet, but spices keeps it well-balanced, and the finish is dry and bitter. Medium body at best. Highly enjoyable, but I would not call it an Altbier. It is more like a Dubbel.

Bottle. Aroma sweet ripe fruits. Uncleay brown colour with huge beige head. Very sweet taste filled with plums and raisins - it really gives rememberance to harvest. Long sweet aftertaste like cane sugar and portwine. A true autumn pleasure.

Bottle. Pours clear amber brown with a lasting brown head. Funny aroma; hoppy but with some floral/herbal/perfumy notes that reminded me of some kind of ointment. – Interesting. Flavour is a complex blend of malty, hoppy, fruity and alcohol notes. Bitter and malty finish. 28-08-06.
