COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An experiment where we tried to make a classic British strong ale, as they used to be brewed. A very bitter and flavorful ale hopped with copious amounts of British whole leaf hops added in several steps during the brew process - with the last addition directly in the cask from where the ale is served. Spicy, floral aroma combined with a firm malt profile makes this brew strong tasting, but still very quaffable. Brewed on Maris Otter ale malt, two types of caramel malt and the finest Demerare cane sugar. Ølfabrikken "Britisk Strong Ale" is, of course, unpasteurized, unfiltered and cask conditioned like all of our beers. Introduced on 'Fynske Øldage' 2005.

Cloudy amber color. Cheesy malt and hop aroma. Good malty taste, with English hops. Nice English hops.

Pale amber color, butterscotch nose - uh oh. Caramelly malt with a skosh of smoke. Light bitter. Medium body but an oily feel. Not so good overall. But then again I really don’t like British ales in general much...

Yeah man! On Draft at PlanB, Copenhagen - thanks Dixen for giving me a sample! Nice malt and toffee nose. Amber colored with a small head on top. Medium hops taste with some malt and caramel - smooth and great. I like this!

First retired beer I drink on draught... Hazy amber, small yellowish head. British hops, dry hopped. I seemed to get diacetyl, but gone after the first nosefull. Caramel, no doubt. Dry hoppy with UK hops if I ever had some. Wow, this is just so right - leafy, hoppy, even citrus hops, resiny. Medium bodied, just as it ought to be. Impressed. I wish the British brewers made it that well - as this was on KEG, if you please.

On tap at "Plan B", Copenhagen. Nice British Strong Ale that is surprisingly easy to drink considering the generous amounts of malt and - of course - hops. The alcohol is very well hidden and the hops add hints of pines and citrus along with a dry bitter finish.

sunevdj (3176) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2006
On tap @ Ølbaren. Pours a hazy orange with a tanned head. Ølfabrikken is not afraid of hops... lovely. Slightly sour. Nice CO2 level. Medium- to full bodied. Dry, bitter finish.

(on tap) Very darl orange, lasting white head. Sunflowersweet aroma, soft carbonation. Slightly spicy, maltsyrup tatse. Dry finish, somewhat vinourous finish. A very drinkable, straight forward ale, I would have liked to seen staying on the line-up.
