COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ett välhumlat påsköl. Sigtuna Dark Easter Ale är en mörk, fyllig ale, med något rostade toner. Humlen, som är tillsatt i rikliga mängder, kommer från USA och Nya Zeeland. Prova gärna till påskens mer kraftiga rätter som t.ex örtkryddad lammstek. Mattias Hammenlind, Bryggmästare.
