Danish: Fadlagring af de bedste øl giver noget helt særligt til smagsbilledet. Man får på een gang bidrag fra fadet og dets forhistorie - og fra alle de processer der foregår når øllet gemmes. Vore egetræsfade har gemt på portvin tidligere - nu bidrager de så positivt til vores barleywine. Imagine er en fantastisk alsidg øl. Den kan bruges både som “nydeøl” og som øllet til maden. Men husk at drikke vand til! Øl i den kategori skal behandles som en god vin - og hvem kunne drømme om at drikke vin til mad, uden at der er en vandkaraffel på bordet. Kun vandaler! Imagine er godt humlet med aromatiske humle og tilmed tørhumlet i fadene. Så kan man have både masser af maltkarakter og humlebitterhed på een gang. Den lange lagring på fadene har så lige taget “skarheden” fra humlen, så nu skal det hele helst gå op i en højere enhed
Indeholder: Bygmalte, humle, gær og vand
