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.

rane (1005) - Nibe, DENMARK - FEB 9, 2010
Bottle. Dark mahogany with pale brown head. Aroma very sweet and spicy, notes of lavender and staranise. Taste too sweet and too spiced as well. Taste dominated by lavender and staranise, The original Esrum Kloster from Brøckhouse was a better beer, this one gets too spiced, sweet and cloying. It seems like the beer is going in too many directions, not wellcomposed.

500 ml bottle. Amber body with a big, creamy beige head that disappears quite fast. Aroma has malt bit is dominated by spices like estragon and anise, it also smells like perfume (lavender?). Flavor is quite light with lots of spices from aroma, rather unbalanced actually. Not all bad but not the best beer either.
