COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Danmarks vel eneste unikke bidrag til den internationale korstogsbevægelse var en øl – en korstogsøl. Når man blev optaget i korstogsordenen Johanniterne (Malteserridderne) i Danmark drak man den traditionelle ”Kors øøll”. Nu har Nyborg Slot sammen med Ørbæk Bryggeri genskabt øllen, som den kunne have været.
Det er en mørk, kraftig øl (alk. 7,5%) med strejf af citronmelisse, safran og rørsukker. Ingredienser som alle har forbindelse til Johanniternes jorde og huse i Europa og Det Hellige Land. På trods af styrken er den overraskende blød og rund og vil gå godt til aftensmaden i stedet for vin.
Louise Harbo Bendixen har designet etiketten

15.02.2014. 0,75l Bottle. RBNG-14. Dark brown colour with off-white head. Aroma of dark malts. Flavours of dark malts. Notes of sweetness and caramel malts. Medium bitterness. Strong body and it is kind of rich because of both sweetness and alcohol.

ClubGonzo (3520) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 7, 2014
Bottle sample @ RBNG-14. Deep coppery amber body, small off-white head. Nose is caramel, vanilla, brown sugar and hints of bread and wet paper. Taste is sweet grains, caramel, hints of red fruits, pine, cereals and burnt sugar. Medium body and carbonation. OK, and rather original, but not much more.

Palme (2993) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 3, 2014
Sampled from a 0.75l bottle @ RBNG 2014. This is a light cloudy looking one, dark amber in color and it has a tiny sidesticking off-white filmy head. Smells sweet with sweet red berries, caramel malts, cowberries and some slightly tart wood. Tastes honey sweet at first. A bit like a mead you’d could say. More red berries located here, concentrated fruits and some roasted hints towards the finis. All in all quite decent. 15.02.2014

KoNrRiI (389) - Århus, DENMARK - MAR 2, 2014
0.75 bottle. Very dark crimson color and a medium-sized, off-white head. Malty aroma with yeasty additions, mostly caramel sweet with a touch of apple-like sourness and hints of barnyard aromas. Very sweet taste of roasted malts and some bitterness in the background. Full body, thick texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is an amplified-to-a-fault version of the taste leaving an astringent aftertaste. Overall the beer is good but its pungent character takes a longer while to get used to.
