COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fyldig, rik smak fra ristede karamellmalter, utsøkt britisk humle og rosiner - ingredienser som sammen med vann og gjær også skaper den rødlige gløden og det gyldne skummet. Fyr i peisen, rull ut bjørneskinnet, hell i glasset. La Lervig Winter Ale med sine 8,3 alkoholprosenter varme opp vinterkvelden.

mile (2986) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 19, 2013
Bottle. Amber, hazy, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate to full malty and sweetish aroma, caramel and some dark fruitiness. Body is medium to full, malty and sweetish flavor, caramel and some dark fruitiness. Finish is average, malty and sweetish, some caramel and light dark fruitinesss, light alcohol. Caramel sweetish strong ale - lacks character. For those with sweet tooth.

abemorsten (2767) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - DEC 28, 2010
Tap at Cardinal. Hazy copper with a two finger thick creamy light brown head leaving a fair lacing. Candy, caramel aroma with distinct fruity tones on the nose. Herbs, candy sweat, leather and tobacco released in the mouth with acidic and salty flavors. Astringent with a dryish finish. Medium carbonation. Feel a bit raw and sharp on the edges.

visionthing (2733) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 9, 2012
Bottle from Vinmonopolet. Pours dark amber with a tiny light brown head. Aroma of raisins, caramel, roasted malt, alcohol and spices. Sweet and fruity with lots of raisins and some spices. Slightly bitter finish. Reminds me a bit about gløgg. Anyway it’s a nice winter warmer. (BF310915)

Marduk (2718) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 5, 2013
330ml bottle. Dark copper color. Small size, white head, stays. Smells woody and sour. Tastes like Belle Vue Kriek mixed with some shitty macro. And I’m totally aware that it’s not a good thing to say to any beer.

Holmen1 (2467) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 15, 2012
Flaske fra Polet og på Cardinal, jan-12: Har likt denne hver gang jeg har prøvd. Interessant med den utpregede rosinsmaken. Håper de lager en ny batch av denne.

daje (2450) - NORWAY - MAR 5, 2011
Bottle shared with esp0r. Hazy deep red with a thin beige head. Aroma of forest fruits, nuts and caramel. Taste is roasty malt with berries and spices, of course the raisins are easy to spot. Good body, great by the fire in the winter
