COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Saaz Brew er brygget udelukkende på danskproduceret lagermalt og humle. Humlen er den tjekkiske Saaz, der er en af verdens fineste og dyreste humlesorter. Det er iøvrigt humlen, der har givet inspiration til navnet. Saaz Brew er undergæret, hvilket betyder, at der under gæring og lagring stilles meget store krav til både temperatur og tid. Derfor er Saaz Brew lagret i mindst 180 dage ved 0 grader C. inden den tappes på flasker.

(Bottle). Aroma and taste of sweet malt, alcohol and grassy hops. The alcohol is just too obtrusive in the taste, not good!

DraftDodger (888) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2016
Copenhagen 21/5 2016. 70 cl bottle from Meny. Black label with gothic letters to get you in the right Central European mood. Pours clear dark brown with off-white head. Disappears quite quickly. Aroma is quite sweet. Syrup, caramel and honey. A sharp bitter sour edge with a whiff of alcohol. Medium carbonation with oily and sticky palate. Taste is overwhelmingly sweet and intense. Only very light bitterness. Aftertaste is quite sweet as well almost drowning out the healthy amount of alcohol involved. A bit too much on the sweet side for my taste.

En god humlet øl, der dog mangler en del dybte i smagen, en rigtig klassisker.

Gubihumle (540) - Nørre Aaby, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2015
Flaske. farven er kastanjebrun og skumkronen er beigeagtig. Aromaen og smagen er sødlig malt og karamel, der kommer dog noter af kaffe frem i smagen. En dejlig øl.

TorbenJensen (1435) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2015
This bock is quite nice foamy and nice dark color with a golden glow. The flavor is similar to my expectations; abundant dark malt tones and only a slight hop in the background. But the taste gets me on quite other thoughts. It has the caramel malt as a bock should have, but too excessive amount. Normally, Hancock easily surprise me positively, but here I definitely think that they have set type correctness little too much on the tip. It’s possible that this almost syrupy sweetness has had to raise the alcohol up to 8.1, but I have tasted much better bocks with much less alcohol.

Bamsen78 (4810) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2015
Bottle. Pours clear copper brown with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of malt, caramel and yeast,mwith some notes of hops. Sweetish flavour of caramel malt and yeast, offset by bitter notes of hops and touches of metal. Bready notes. Bitter and bready aftertaste. Medium to high carbonation. Drinkable, reasonable, but I have had better beers of this style.

Flaske 0,75 liter, en fantastisk lækker herre øl, flot i glasset, gode ristede aroma/ duft af karamel og malt, er lidt kraftig i smagen i starten men går hen og bliver sød i smagen, dejligt.
