COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Holmen1 (2763) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 28, 2013
Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff sep-13: vakker rubinfarge med fint skum. Innbydende aroma og en rund, fruktig lettdrikkelig bitterhet. En god ale både før og etter aftensang, men det skal mer til for at jeg får religiøse fornemmelser.

Well, well. Earlier today, I had been bemoaning the bog-standardness of the Brown English Bitters I’ve had recently, and then the evening brings this: Deep russet pint, with a densely packed off-white head. Plumptious toffee and fruit aroma. Toffee blue fruit, and raisin flavours. Full bodied, chewy, smooth palate, bitter snap in the finish. I was reminded of Double Maxim, whih is a brown ale, which might give you a sterr as to the way this bitter leans. Lovely stuff.
