COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Juleøllet har sin sikre plads blandt de danske juletraditioner. Juleøllet har alle dage været kraftigere øl end hverdagsøllet – Hornbeer Juleøl er ingen undtagelse. Den holder lige knapt sine 9 pct alkohol. Vi har i år valgt at brygge vores juleøl efter belgisk forbillede. Der er anvendt gær fra belgisk trappistøl og lyse og mørke malte, så øllet fremstår med en let karamelsmag og lidt brændte noter. Målet har været, at gøre vores juleøl rigtigt velegnet til den danske julemad. Og så har vi lige krydret den med lidt med enebær, en smule anis og andet godt – det er jo jul !

timmwillum (80) - BELGIUM - NOV 30, 2014
Flot helt mørk øl med halvtykt gyldent skum. Næse af humle, anis og en anelse jern og syre. Starter sødlig med en del kulsyre. Slutter med fin bitter og syrlig kontrast og rigelig lakrids/anis. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
