COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Barley Wine (Bygvin) stammer helt tilbage fra Napoleonskrigene, hvor englænderne måtte finde et alternativ til vin, da man anså det for upatriotisk at drikke franske vine. Midtfyns Barley Wine er også et godt alternativ til vin, og den passer godt til milde og cremede oste, men også til ”fed” mad som ” Osso Buco”, kalvekæber eller svineskank, eventuelt marineret i vores Barley Wine. Den høje alkoholstyrke og bitterhed suppleres godt af maltsødmen, og smagen af karamel, sirup og egetræ, gør denne Barley Wine til en øl med mange og varme smagsnuancer.

Ungstrup (29223) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 28, 2010

Bottled at Carlsens Kvarter, Odense. Hazy mahogany colour, lasting head. Malty bready nose. Sweet with some some strawberry esters, full bodied with lovely deep malt character. Very English style barle ywine, where rich deep malt by far outweighs hops. Mildy warming finish. Lovely!
