Danish: Stjernebryg er brygget af seks forskellige typer malt, der giver det mørke øl en flot rødlig nuance. Øllet har kraftig fylde, og den store mængde restsukker giver en dejlig sødme, som vi har afbalanceret med en relativ stor mængde humle i forhold til, hvordan juleøl traditionelt brygges. Vi har skruet op for julestemningen med et strejf af stjerneanis og koriander.

Anvendelse Stjernebryg er yderst velegnet som ledsager til traditionel dansk julemad som and og gås, og går godt i spænd med Herslev Brændevin Stjerneanis og Herslev Brændevin Korn. Perfekt som dessertøl eller som afslutning på en hektisk juledag.

UPDATED: DEC 25, 2008 50 cL bottle. Pours dark brown with thick brown head. Fantastic christmas aroma of chocolate, fruits, anise, coriander and alcohol - some yeast as well. Taste adds malt notes to the aroma flavours. Finish is long and sweet. Lovely balanced and goes great to almost any food. Fantastic Christmas brew.

New version of Herslevs Christmas brew - this time much stronger! Dark brown-red, with a thick head. Sweet aroma with notes of licorice. Full-bodied sweet taste of raisins and star anise - but not to much. Very creamy and well balanced beer. Much better than last year.

Pernille (518) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 30, 2005
(Draft at Fynske Øldage) Chestnut color and a beige creamy head. Fresh aroma where the star anise is present. Although this holds a lot of alcohol the overall impression is light and elegant. Very nice christmasbeer. Less spicy than last year’s.

Bottle 50 cl @ 14C in tulip glass. Redbrown colour, nice head. Malty aroma and light hop notes. Lots of spices (coriander and anis). Sweet flavour of a belgian style christmas beer. Soft carbonation. Not bad at all..

This is the nicest beer I have ever tasted from Herslev. The taste is full, and it fully deservs its name "starbrew". Really a plasure to drink ! Full head on a red-brown body, it has spices ans an enchanty sweet flavour.

Bottle. What I wrote about looks, aroma and flavor for the 2004 version also goes for this. Still I think 2005 is slightly better because it feels smore smooth and not quite as agressive as the 2004 version.
