Danish: Skands Esrum Kloster er Bryggeriet Skands fortolkning af en klosteryg. Der er brugt krydderurter fra klostrets egen urtehave, bl.a. enebær, citronmelisse, lavendel, anis og rosmarin, alle urter som munkene brugte som smagsforstærkere. Esrum Kloster er en overgæret og har en dejlig mørk kastanjebrun farve, en aromatisk duft og smagen afrundes med en snert af anis.
Esrum Kloster er blankfiltreret.
Esrum Kloster egner sig fortrinligt til kraftige kødretter og vinter mad, men kan også nydes alene i en stille stund.

English: Skands Esrum is Skands Brewery interpretation of a klosteryg. I have used herbs from the monastery’s own herb garden, including juniper, lemon balm, lavender, anise and rosemary, all herbs which the monks used as flavor enhancers. Esrum is a top-fermented and has a lovely dark chestnut brown color, an aromatic fragrance and flavor rounded off with a hint of anise. Esrum is blank filtered. Esrum perfectly suited for heavy meat dishes and winter food, but can also be enjoyed alone in a quiet moment.

I fell in love with this at a visit to the monastry 3 years ago. Really it was one of those beers that started my interest in craft brewing. Pours dark brown with a thick off-white, lasting foam. Spicy aroma with some fig and dates in it. The taste is similar but also has sweet malty notes kind of dulling the spiciness. I still like it, though now it seems a little less finely tuned than the first time I tried it. Great carbonation by the way. - with thirst, Niklas

Hansen (6224) - Assentoft, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2014
Way too herbal, ends in a sharp, unpleasent beer. Dark amber coloured, off-white head, medium duration. Heavy herbal aroma, anise and the rest of the bunch. Sweet flavor, more herbs..hey? Hops? Well, perhaps, but not detectable.

Japalo (1047) - DENMARK - FEB 13, 2014
Bottle@Conni's place. Dark brown. Clear. Two finger foam. Good carbonation. Faint spicy notes. Strange herbal taste. Tends to be better after several sips.

Vignale (1812) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 29, 2014
Flaska från SBs beställningssortiment. Mahognyfärgad, klar, lågt krämigt skum. Söt, örtig, kryddig och parfymerad doft. Tänk doftpåse. Doft och smak av bröstkarameller, kampfer, enbär, rosmarin, sav, fünf kreuter, lavendel och anis. Liten beska. Trevlig om än lite väl söt. Tänker på Achel blond extra.

Rune (7363) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 6, 2014
A little dark green bottle, 250ml, bought at the Illum store in central Copenhagen. Low, beige-tan coloured head. Minimal lacing. Deep, dark brown body. Earthy malts surrounded by spices on the nose. Ginger and mild pepper. Similar spicy taste with ginger to the fore added by anise and pepper. Herbal malty backbone. Spiced bittersweet tail. Fine bodied. Too much like a ginger beer, perhaps (Tromsø 05.01.2014).
Earlier Rating: 3/30/2010 Total Score: 3.2
300ml draught, guest ale at BrewPub, Copenhagen. Ruby-like content under a shinning surface. Malty to the nose supplied by spices. Pretty much the same to the taste buds...sweet malts offset by varieties of spices. Piny hops towards the finish. Rather sweet, but likable (Copenhagen, 25.03.2010).

Flott rødlig farge, lukter av malt, treverk, lakris og urter. Kremhvitt skum som blir liggende, mye smak, minner om Gammel Dansk og Underberger. God, lang og bitter ettersmak.
