COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Humle-Hildas Altbier (5.0 vol%) är en mahognyfärgad ale av den typ som bryggs i Düsseldorf. Den har en brödigt rostad karaktär och mjuk pigg humleton. Pilsner-, münchener- och mörk karamellmalt i kombination med ädla tyska humlesorter, bl.a. Hallertauer, ger ölet karaktär. I Rupertsberg fanns under 1100- talet en abbedissa vid namn Hildegard von Bingen. Hennes gärningar var många och bl.a. nedtecknade hon användandet av humle i samband med ölbryggning. Så kom klostrens vana att nyttja humle vid ölframställning den profana världen till godo!

The aroma is malt with a slightly strange perfumed touch of candy and butterscotch. The taste is a little watering with elements of caramel malt, fruit and hops. OK beer!

Vignale (2003) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 27, 2011
Skummar måttlig, ljusbrunt skum som långsamt lägger sig. Kastanjebrun i färgen. Doftar bröd och humle. Smaken är brödigt sötsyrlig, överaskande lätt trots den mörka färgen. humle och en lätt rökighet med lätt efterbeska. Påminner om en mörk bitter på fat med sina runda och snälla smaker.

gyllenbock (4433) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 5, 2010
Bottle. Slightly hazy brownish color with a beige foam. The aroma contained malt, bread, dough and a very slight smell of perfume. Also some roasted tones and nuts. It was not a taste explosion, caramel, malt, grass and some fruit. The body was about average, also average carbonation. Liquid felt dry in the mouth, the aftertaste had a decent bitterness.

yngwie (13200) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 16, 2009
Bottle. The aroma is pleasant, but weak, with maltyness dominating, a bit bready maybe. The beer is clear and copper-colored, topped by a decent off-white head. Caramel-malty flavor with a fine hoppyness in the background. Medium, dry mouthfeel. There’s nothing impressive with this one, but it’s quite pleasant and easy drinkable, a beer to return to.

Joakgust (844) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 18, 2009
Bottle, 50cl - Unclear brown to red-brown beer with a fine orange-beige head. The aroma is malty with notes of caramel and floral hops. Flavor is malty with notes of roasty caramel with hints of dried fruit. Pretty nice, but Sigtuna always seem to be unfaithful to their beer styles when brewing. Not always good, nor is it always bad. in this case it works out just fine.

ekstedt (5355) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 26, 2008
From a bottle (50 cl) at SMÖF-08. Hazy mahogny, large off-white head. Spicy, estery, caramelly and fruity, a bit sourish. Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation. Well balanced, a bit acidic. Does really not taste like an altbier.

Bottle. Another disappointment from Sigtuna Brygghus. Not bad but nothing special. Good pizza-beer.

Comments: Very bubbly Sigtuna once again. Dark caramel malts with a point of earthiness are complemented by lemony, floral hops. Medium bitterness, quite grassy. The noble feeling is severely hampered by the extreme carbonation.

Ungstrup (29168) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 30, 2007
Bottled. An unclear amber beer with a thin orange head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel and fruits, leading to a bitter finish. More like an ale - not to style.
