Editor's note: This beer was formerly known as "Holbæk Påskebryg", but got its new name in March 2007
The bottled version has been brewed at Herslev Bryghus.

Danish: Holbæk Forårsbryg er en lys og let drikkelig ale. Den er fyldig men alligevel frisk og med et strejf af citrus. Trods den milde karakter gemmer der sig en lille djævel i bryggen, idet den har en alkoholprocent på 6,3. Der er brugt tre forskellige typer malt, og den er gæret med to typer gær: én der giver den milde, bløde smag og en belgisk gærtype, der giver øllet en robust og fyldigere karakter. Urten er kogt med husets bitterhumle, og ad to omgange er der tilsat en forfriskende aromahumle.

English: A blending beer of two different brews with the same malt profile (57% Pale Ale malt, 28% Cara malt, 15% Pilsener malt and some oatmeal) but fermented with two different yeast strains: Whitbread Pale Ale and a Belgian Abbey Ale yeast. Boiled with Target, late addition of Styrian Goldings which are also used for the dry hopping.

Holmen1 (2348) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 27, 2014
10 cl glass fra fad på Tap1, mai-14: et interessant øl hvor de to gjærstammene som er benyttet gir en god kryddersmak. Alikevel avrundet og lett å drikke. Kort skum. Må kjøpe en flaske av denne og prøve ordentlig.
