Lade Gaards Mørk Lager er basert på en original oppskrift fra 1899. Ølet er brygget på Münchener- og karamellmalt, tilsatt Golding humle. Ølet modnes på fat i syv uker før det tappes på flaske. Gjennom den langsomme prosessen utvikles et fyldig og smaksrikt øl, med god sødme og moderat bitter ettersmak. Fargen er rødlig mørkebrun, og gir en fin skumtopp i glasset. Vannet vårt henter vi fra Farrisvannet i Vestfold, som med sitt naturlige mineralinnhold og friskhet er særdeles velegnet for brygging av øl.

Bottle, trade with Cunningham, huge thanx maaan!!
Very nice bottle design. Pours dark amber colored with flat off-white head. Smells malty-sweet, sugary and slight artificial. Starts artificial sweet and musty malty, very sugary sweet and watery. Middle part is watery and very artificial sweet, paired with some caramel. Goes into a caramelly sweetish finish with some musty malts.

Nonshaugen (205) - Fetsund, NORWAY - OCT 9, 2015
50 cl bottle with a screw cap, rather unusual. Dark amber to copper in the glass, tan to light brown thin head, disappears rapidly. Smells like it has been stored too long in the bottle, a bit sour and unpleasant. Not a pleasant taste either. Not as skunked as the pilsener I recently had from this brewery, but skunked enough for me to pour this one in the sink. Again, I’ll have to re-rate this later.

Bottle contributed by, and shared with, EMJ at OSB 22.04.15. Clear, pale nutty brown. Dense and fairly persistent beige head and lacing. Aroma of metallic malt and engine room. Sweet semi-dark malt and syrup in taste. Slightly metallic.

50 cl bottle. Pours copper with a small white head. Aromas of caramel and cola (!) Alright beer from Grans. Like the classic looking labels on the Lade Gaard series.

PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2014
Looks and tastes German, not unlike altbiers. Weak aroma of tea, cola and caramel malts. The taste also contains some cola and caramel. Not very remarkable, but overall a very good dark lager.

IPAgutten79 (823) - Skui, NORWAY - MAY 27, 2014
Brun med lavt skum. Aromaen er anonym, noe malt og brød. Smaken er svakt av malt, noe metall o mild av humle. Tynn konsistens.
