COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Alstærk er den ene af to heste, som trækker Sols vogn hen over himlen. Vognen bliver styret af Mundilfares smukke datter, som er opkaldt efter solen.
Alstærk blev kåret som den bedste øl ved DM i håndbryg 2011 og vandt desuden andenpladsen ved det skandinaviske mesterskab i håndbryg 2011. Alstærk er en stærk Skotsk Ale, som gæres ved lavere temperaturer end de fleste ales for at fremhæve maltbaggrunden. Den er brygget med 6 forskellige malttyper, hvilket resulterer i en kompleks maltbaggrund som balance til den høje alkoholprocent og det lave indhold af humle. Fynske Claus Christensen fra Munkebo Mikrobryg er Danmarks mest vindende håndbrygger, som kombinerer traditionel ølbrygning med nutidens naturvidenskab.
Ingredienser: malt, humle, vand, gær, maltekstrakt og sukker.

First batch brewed at Ørbæk, late 2013 the brewing was moved to own equipment

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2014 Bottle, 75cl corked, Ørbæk edition. It’s an unclear one, dark amber in color and topped by a big, dense, off-white head. The aroma is roasted, with caramel and licorice. Perhaps a spiced hint, but the alcohol level is well hidden. It’s warming and full bodied, nicely carbonated, and with flavors of sweetness, licorice, some roasted malt and a spiced touch. Sweet finish. Although a bit warming on the palate, it’s a fine beer, not overly complex, but tasteful and pleasant. Rating: 7-4-7-4-15-3.7. 121130

Bottle, 33cl, Stensbogaard edition. An almost clear one, dark amber in color and with a small, beige head. The aroma is lightly roasted, with a little caramel and some notes of dms. Some sweetness in the flavor, with roasted malts and caramel. Quite full-bodied and lighlty warming on the palate, soft carbonation. Some bitterness towards the end. Think I prefer the Ørbæk batch. 140118
