COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This dark, rich ale is based on the combination of eight different malts and cereals. This yields a complex malt profile with some sweetness, balanced by American hops, which also provides the ale with a citrussy aroma. Can be enjoyed on a cold day by itself or with grilled meat and hearty stews. Ølfabrikken Brown Ale is, of course, unpasteurized, unfiltered and bottle conditioned like all of our beers.

Nnudd (69) - Helsinge, - SEP 25, 2010
Bottle (swingtop)@home. Pours clear brown, with small off white head. Little lacings. Aroma of caramel and toffee, and a little note of choclate as well. Taste is lots of malt, medium bitternss, and a little sourness as well, mabye becauce it is a vintage. Body is medium with a slightly creamy texture. Still some carbonation. Old but still a nice beer.

Dark red-brown ale, clear. Smooth chocolatey malt leads very nicely to a mildly hoppy finish. Not overdone at all. Well joined up tasty beer. Who needs Jackie Brown?
