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

Bottle. Pours brown with a medium beige head. The aroma is spicy, yeasty and malty. The flavour is high malty and dark fruity with light herbal hints. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Miltei kirkas keskiruskea olut vaahtoaa kohtalaisesti, mutta vaahto katoaa nopeasti kokonaan. Tuoksu maltainen, luumuisen rusinainen ja makea. Maultaan olut on makean maltainen, luumuinen ja rusinainen. Melko imelän maltainen jälkimaku, ei juuri happamuutta. Keskitäyteläinen suutuntuma, ei hiilihappoja juuri lainkaan. Pehmeä jouluinen ale on ihan lempeän lämmittävä ja pehmeän makea pläjäys.

Moebbels (706) - FINLAND - JAN 5, 2016
A somewhat murky dark brown beer with a quickly disappearing light brown head. Nose is somewhat muted with notes of sweet chokolate, coffee, rye, mämmi and a hint of spices. Taste is quite sweet with a very mildly bitter and short finish. Very low carbonation and rich, sugary palate. Surprisingly decent and sweet beer, the low carbonation and palate reminds a bit of real cask ale.

TET (2591) - Kaarina, FINLAND - JAN 3, 2016
A dark brown beer, a head is medium and beige. Aroma has lots of sweet and dried fruits, apricot, raisin, fresh anyway, hint of breadyness. Taste has dried fruits, raisins, dates, bananas, not too sweet, some herbs and earthyness. Medium bodied, smooth carbonation. A positive surprise, the strongly dried fruity. Good beer, even the big bottle is slightly too much.

martin00sr (2700) - Haderslev, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2015
Cloudy brown with small offwhite head. Aroma has lots of brown sugar, hints of dried fruit and spice. Brown sugar and caramel flavour, a little spice and warming alcohol. Rather sweet but otherwise ok.

Marstonlad (746) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 21, 2015
Bottle from Alko, Helsinki. A dark brown color; little white head. The aroma features sweet caramel-themed dark maltiness with prominent dark fruitiness and rye pudding. Taste is medium sweet with a fairly solid and balanced malt character; caramel, raisin and plum appear. Low on hoppiness. The palate is medium-bodied and very smooth. Decent flavour profile and fairly drinkable for a beer this strong.
