Ølfabrikken Gårdbryg


Formerly brewed at Bryggeriet Ølfabrikken (Gourmetbryggeriet - Harboe)
Roskilde, Denmark
Style: Traditional Ale | Ratings: 49 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 7%
A dark and refreshing ale belonging to the family of "farmhouse ales" which used to refresh and strengthen the farm-workers all over Europe after a hard day in the fields. This is a darker winter-type which has the alcohol strength to make it suitable for celebration as well. Dark almost black in color, but not burned or roasted. With lively carbonation and a creamy café au lait colored head, this beer presents itself well in the glass. The hops provides the beer with refreshing dryness and bitterness. Whole hop flowers added during maturation maintains the freshness. A little bit of roasted malt gives notes of coffee and cocoa without leaving a burned flavor. Mixed fermentation with a Belgian and a neutral American yeast provides a complex profile with nuances of cherries and and honey without excessive fruitiness which could interfere with the hoppiness. Ølfabrikken Gårdbryg is, of course, unpasteurized, unfiltered and bottle conditioned like all of our beers.
