COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Hornbeer Grisk er brygget til ære for den finansielle sektor, der med usædvanlig høj moral varetager en vigtig funktion i samfundet. I den sektor lever man helt op til det gamle ordsprog: “det ingen ser, har ingen ondt af”. Når ordentlige mennesker betror banken deres opsparing, så bliver den “forvaltet” med “rettidig omhu”, så banken tjener sikre penge. Det er ikke sikkert der bliver ret meget tilbage til kunden. Når banken er blevet lidt for “risikovillig” og den kører fast og skal reddes af de danske skatteydere, så modtager direktørerne “gyldne håndtryk” for deres seriøse indsats ! En masse mennesker står tilbage med store tab. Men det er ikke kun ved de store bankkrak, at ordentlige mennesker bliver snydt. Når banken “rådgiver”, så kan du være helt sikker på, at det er med udgangspunkt i, at banken skal tjene penge. Banken har simpelthed en anden dagsorden end den officielle. Danmark indtager en flot førsteplads når det gælder befolkningens tillid til hinanden – til naboen, til offentlige institutioner og, ja, til den finansielle sektor. Det er en tillid som er værdifuld i et velfærdssamfund. Uden den tillid ville alting blive mere besværligt med mere kontrol, Ja, det ville formentlig koste vores førsteplads som “Verdens lykkeligste folk”. Så det er bare så ærgerligt, at der er en vigtig sektor med en helt anden moral og dagsorden. Med Hornbeer Grisk vil vi gerne være med til at sætte fokus på moral – modsat griskhed. Hvis denne øl kan være med til at flere mennesker stiller krav til deres bank om redelighed, så har vi nået vores mål.

Men øllet er godt nok – det holder til gengæld hvad det lover. En humlet type, IPA 6,4% – lige mellem bankernes indlånsrente på 0,5% og udlånsrenten på 10% – kaldet “rentemarginalen” – se evt Ebberød Bank. Een krone pr. flaske Grisk bliver doneret til Kræftens Bekæmpelse.

Svesse (6044) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUL 14, 2014
(Bottle) Amber colour, slightly hazy, with huge frothy beige head, leaving traces of lacing. Fruity, malty nose with notes of dried fruit, apricots, orange peel, mandarin, caramel and floral hops. Fruity, hoppy taste with caramel, dried fruit, citrus peel, grapefruit, crisp-bread and a finish with citric, floral hops giving it a certain bitterness. Medium body, with a slight sweetness. Quite tasty and well balanced. Hops are fresh but not very aggressive, making it highly drinkable. Nice one.

Tap at CBC Brixton 06/2014. Pours a hazy, dark, reddy amber with a slightly off white head. Sweet toffee aroma. Medium body, medium carbonation. Toffee, wood, brown toast... Finishes with a burnt sugar bitterness which lingers. It’s OK.

OleR (4786) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 2, 2014
Pours a brilliant orangey golden, with a rapidly shrinking shiny white top. Fruity and resinous hop aroma, nicely paired with some caramel malts. Medium body strengh, slick texture. Clean and rich caramelly malt flavor. Bold resiny and fruity bitterness all the way. A flawless, no-nonsense US-styled IPA. [0,5 l bottle bought at Sidinge Gårdsbutik, Vig, Sjælland]

BeerSkull (1234) - SWEDEN - JUN 5, 2014
(Bottle). OK beer, but it does not impress me because my notes are few on this one, but it’s a completely approved IPA. However, there is a little to significant feature in the taste of sweet caramel.

Theydon_Bois (7944) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2014
Keg at Craft Holborn Court Road, 03/06/14. Golden amber with a well appointed off white covering. Nose is caramel malt, bitter orange, straw, hop tones. Taste comprises toasted bread, bitter orange, light grapefruit, malt driven of the Caramac bar variety. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, hoppy linger in the close. Adequate IPA but no show stopper.
