COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Freedom är en India Pale Ale i amerikansk stil med stora mängder amerikansk humle som ger en rik frisk doft samt en markerad beska. Denna i kombination med den stora maltiga kroppen och den något högre alkoholhalten ger en mycket välbalanserad öl. I den fylliga smak- och doftprofilen finns det massor av nyslaget gräs och citrus och en lång trevlig beska.

Klassifikation: India Pale Ale

Användning: Freedom är perfekt till lite starkare mat som indiska rätter eller tex-mex, men den är även trevlig som en smakrik törstsläckare. Den fungerar självklart även utmärkt till lite kraftigare husmanskost och grillat kött.

Innehåll: Fyra sorters malt: Pilsner-, münchener-, carared och melanoidinmalt. Fyra sorters humle: Northen Brewer, Simcoe, Amarillo och Citra.

Alkoholhalt: 6,5 %

Artikelnummer hos Systembolaget: 89687-01

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2015
Bottle split with Hatzer, J-Bar Sip and Tick Festival, Nacka, Stockholm, 31/10/15. Deep gold crowned with a fine snowy collar. Good nosing of guavas, peaches et al drizzled with the honey spoon. Tangy orange marmalade hop taste on toasted bread and crackers. Soapy and floral mandarin finish. Alcohol well carried. Solid and functional like a pasteurised bottled English GA somewhat lacking the aromatics expected of a 6.5% IPA.

Dejlig humlet, specielt i eftersmagen er der knald på. Kunne godt ønske sig mere sødme i den.

Bottle 50 cl. Pours an almost clear amber with a smallish, white head. Some fruity aroma accents, but also somewhat greasy. Rich, malty, caramellish body, pleasant exotic fruits but also a less pleasant rough edge - not sure what it is. Bitterish finish. Lacks a fresh aroma character. 250315

Vighals (2421) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2015
Gylden brun litt tåkete med høyt kremete beige skum. Lukter fruktig, aprikos, fersen samt noe sydhavsfrukter som ananas. Bitterheten kommer fort og forsvinner fort.

Bottle @ Studenterhuset. Clear bronze pour with a generous head. Fairly bitter upfront, dank hops, some fruity notes, pine needles. Might have been too old...
