COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor's note: This beer was formerly known as Holbæk Brown Ale.
The bottled version has been brewed at Herslev Bryghus and holds 6.5% ABV.

Danish: Mørk og fyldig ale med en let sødme fra især karamelmalten. Den er brygget på en blanding af tre slags malt, blødt vand og engelsk bitterhumle samt en aromahumle, der giver øllet en frugtagtig duft og tydelig maltkarakter.

English: A dark and full-bodied ale with a light sweetness from the caramel malt. It is brewed with a mix of three different types of malt, soft water, english bittering hops and aroma hops, which gives the beer a fruity aroma and a distinct malt character.
