COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gotlandsdricka, meaning “Drink of the Good Land”, is believed to have been the beer of the Vikings. Our rendition of this ancient style is inspired by the traditional farmhouse ales once brewed on the island of Gotland off the coast of Sweden. Gotlandsdricka (6.6% alcohol by volume) is brewed with birchwood smoked malt, juniper and sweet gale. It’s unfiltered, unpasteurized and naturally carbonated through re-fermentation in the bottle.

Provided by JJ. Served with a large, foamy, frothy, off-white head that lasts all the way down. Color is a hazy amber. Aroma is yeast, smoke, sour, with notes of fruit. Flavor’s like nose, smoke is prominant, but not overdone; again a bit tart. Body’s decent, good carbonation. Finish is like flavor, fairly easy drinking, would killer to cook with..

Palme (3533) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 8, 2013
On tap @ Borefts 2012. Not often you see a smoked this yellow-golden, but it sure is just that. Yellow-golden and light cloudy in color with a big heavy lacing white bubbly top. You don’t have to look to long for the smoke, but it’s not directly punching you in the face either. Mild barbecue sauce aroma with a whiff of citrus. Not extreme but nice. The taste is again from Jester King, really fresh and refreshing. Light grassy with citrus and a little warming alcohol touch. Enjoyable. 28.09.2012
