English: Mystikale is a top-fermented red-brown beer inspired by Sottish as well as Danish brewing traditions. Mystikale is brewed with 6 different spices, among others liqourice root and hip shell, which give the beer a complex and intriguing taste. Mystikale goes very well with traditional Danish lunch and spiced poultry dishes.

yespr (40865) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2007
50 cL bottle. Pours golden orange to amber, almost clear, with a light yellowish head. Complex spice aroma, label says 6 spices, I think I can sense annis seed, cardemomme, ginger, cloves, cinnemon and something extra I cannot make out what is. Flavour continues at the same pathway giving some more power to the individual spices. Underneath is a soft malt base, medium sweet to dry. Finish has a mild bitterness but is dominanted by the spices. Not my style of brew but certainly well crafted and somewhat unique. Well done.

Ungstrup (34712) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2007
Bottled. A deep red beer with a bubblu light tan head. The aroma is sweet with strong spicy notes as well as hints of smoke. The flavor is sweet and very spicy with notes of cellery, fennel, and licorice, leading to a smooth spicy finish, which lingers for a long time.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 18, 2006
(On tap) Very unclear orangey brown with a creamy, light brown head. Very spicy aroma - I detect ginger but apparently this is not added. Medium body with some caramel and then again very spicy accents of spices. Some bitterness in the finish. Interesting. 011206

omhper (23732) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2007 Bottled. Nut brown, rich creamy head. Citric aroma of cinnamon and fennel. Sweet and nutty withlots of herbal spices and dough. Unfortunately all of it drowns in a sea of syrup, making it taste like extremely sweet buns. A bit unrefined and decidedly too sweet for me.

Draught at Københavnske Øldage 2007, 2007-05-11, 5-3-6-3-11=28
Amber color with red hue. Herbal aroma (mint…). Medum body, maybe some malt, honey, but nothing special.

Draught at Lord Nelson, Copenhagen, 2007-03-16, 6-3-6-3-13=31
Dark amber to mahogany color; poor head. Light herbal aroma, similar to heather. Medium malty body, some sweetness, caramel, herbs and traces of liquorice. Quite high ending bitterness. Not bad, balanced, but I don’t see the interest in herbal Ales.
