5% Spice/Herb/Vegetable | 60 Ratings |
The first result of the meeting with Jessica Heidrich is a healthy lager with a pure flavor of Swedish juniper berries that are matched by the exhilarating Cascade hops. According to Mathias fits the beer as good straight from the bottle in the wood-fired sauna in an elegant drinking glasses to the Swedish delicacies as caviar, trout, lobster and tartar on the game.

S:t Eriks & Mathias Dahlgren #1 Enbär

"När vår tradition berikas med innovation uppstår evolution."

S:t Eriks & Mathias Dahlgren #1 Enbär är det första ölet i Mathias Dahlgrens bryggsamarbete med Jessica Heidrich och hyllade S:t Eriks Bryggeri. Tillsammans planerar de en gemensam serie öl utifrån Mathias Dahlgrens filosofi om det naturliga köket som handlar om att framhäva varje enskild råvaras fulla potential. Genom samarbetet sätter Mathias Dahlgren för första gången sitt namn på en produkt.

Doft och smak
Friskt lageröl med ren doft och smak av enbär, färska granskott och skog. Den mustiga enbärsdoften matchas av den grapefruktsaktiga smaken från Cascadehumlen.

Serveringstips och matrecept från Mathias Dahlgren
Serveras vid 8-10 °. Enligt Mathias passar ölet lika bra direkt ur flaskan i den vedeldade bastun som i ett elegant dryckesglas till svenska delikatesser som löjrom, röding, havskräftor och tartar på viltkött liksom till det utvalda receptet tunnbrödsklämma.
