COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Englænderne bombarderede København i 1807. Var det årsagen til at man mere end 100 år senere etablerede den kunstige ø Flakfortet for at forsvare hovedstaden ? Det er spændende forsvarshistorie. I dag er Flakfortet en velbesøgt turistatraktion med egen restuarant. Der huserer sågar et spøgelse på øen. “Helmuth” rumsterer rundt i tide og utide.
Denne Brown Ale er brygget til ære for Helmuth og inspireret af de englændere, der gjorde tilværelsen usikker for københavnerne i mange år. Og den bliver serveret der ude på Flakfortet. Den er brygget på bedste engelske vis af alemalt, chokolademalt og lidt ristet byg. En rigtig fin og alsidig øl til frokosten.

Holmen1 (3543) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 30, 2015
Flaske delt med Einar under kortspill påsken-15: brun med et rødlig skjær og fint skum som holder seg. God aroma og enda bedre smak - ristet brød, nøtter, litt kaffe og lys sjokolade med et behagelig av solbær i avslutningen.

PapaVillum (659) - Valby, DENMARK - FEB 9, 2015
50 cl, flaske, 5,7 % ABV, BB 09/08/17, købt i SuperBest på Øster Fælledtorv på Østerbro, 9. februar 2015. Mørkebrun, rolig og ufiltreret Brown Ale med 3-4 cm tyk let flygtig offwhite-farvet skumkrone. Let syrlig aroma af både citrusfrugt og let sødlig af chokolade. Gær-noter ligeså og en let røg-fornemmelse. Smagen er overraskende bitter med en let underliggende sødme. Og så alligevel ikke, hvis man har læst indholdsfortegnelsen. Alemalten dominerer sammen med den ristede byg. Bitterheden er af anseelig størrelse, stærk, med den lette sødme og et strejf af syrlighed. Karboneringen er almindelig for denne type øl d.v.s. på medium niveau, og kroppen er middel fyldig. Eftersmagen er bitter, men middel ag længde. Olieret konsistens. Udmærket Brown Ale med noget rigtigt britisk over sig.

The scent is fruity. The taste is fruity, bitter and a little chocolate. Good bitterness in the aftertaste that fills the upper part of the mouth for a long while. Good beer but did not feel special. Okay to drink. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Palme (3603) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 24, 2014
0.5l bottle. Well, there is no coming around that this is an ale and it’s brown. A brown ale there for you, and it has a medium sized lingering and quite nicely lacing beige head. On the nose I get a surprising amount of citrussy hops combined with mild chocolate and chocolate milk tones. Mildly roasted and it also has traces of wet grass. Yeah, not bad at all this one. Tastes alright also. It feels light oily in the mouth and it’s just above average on the carbonation. Faint acidic woody tone here. A bit like old still kinda grey coffee that’s been on the pot a tad to long. Soft chocolaty paper with a strong bitterness. It’s not a masterpiece of a brown ale, but it’s not all that bad either really. 14.03.2014

Bamsen78 (4395) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2014
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy dark copper brown wit airy light tan head. Clear aroma of malt and yeast, with notes of caramel and nuts and touches of fruit. Roasty flavour, enhanced by quite metallic bitternes, and less-than-perfectly offset by sweetish notes of yeast and malt. Lingering, roasty aftertaste. A drinkable Brown Ale but definitely not the best one I have had.

ClubGonzo (4724) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 12, 2014
On tap @ Henrik, Bergen. Pours a hazy copper-hued body with a small creamy off-white head. Nose is biscuits, grains, mild raisins, nuts and hints of caramel. Taste is grainy malts, cereals, nuts, biscuits and hints of grass, caramel and burnt sugar. Medium body, medium to high carbonation. Very decent brown ale with no big surprises from Hornbeer.
