COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Et hundrede år efter at Carlsberg´s grundlægger Carls Jacobsen donerede statuen af den Lille Havfrue til København, er der brygget en øl til at markere denne lejlighed. Mermaid Porter er tjæresort med god fylde og et skum så kraftigt, at man skulle tro selveste Vestenvinden havde blæst det op. Øllet dufter indbydende af friskbagte beskøjter, tovværk og skippers nystoppede snadde. Smagen er rig på varme, malt og lakridsagtig bitterhed. Mermaid Porter er brygget til ære for Den Lille Havfrue udført af billedhuggeren Edvard Eriksen. Det var bryggeren Carl Jacobsen som fik ideen til statuen og det var takket være hans gavmilde donation, at Den Lille Havfrue kunne præsenteres for offentligheden d. 23. august 1913. Ingredienser: brygget af bygmalt, rugmalt, havregryn, hvedemalt, rørsukker, salturt, østers, humle og gær. Flaskens indhold svarer til 5 genstande. Alkohol styrke 10%. Mermaid Porter sælges i en gaveæske med 2 x 0,75 l. øl.
