COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brun er en upasteurisert og ufiltrert belgisk type ale. Øl fra Nøgne Ø er flaskegjæret, noe som medfører at man bør behandle flasken med varsomhet før servering, slik at sedimentene ikke forstyrres. Brun har en fin fruktighet som er balansert opp mot god maltsødme. Anbefalt serveringstemperatur 8 grader C. La det bygge en skumtopp. Vi anbefaler Brun som en god kompanjong til vellagrede oster, alternativt ulike kjøttretter.

Rune (10641) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 8, 2009
500ml bottle, batch 386, from Vinmonopolet, Langnes. Light brownish hue with good duration over a deep, dark brown body. Comprehensive beer in both aroma and flavour. Very well balanced smell of just malts and hops. Taste of dark fruits and dark, chocolate malts with underlying spicy acidity. Light hints of yeast. Ends up with lingering hop bitterness. Ashy dryness in texture. Well bodied. I bought a few more bottles to be cellared, should be interesting to re-taste them before Oct.2013 (Tromsø, 07.03.2009).
