COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
First beer we have cooked here after many years of break. Its origins reach back to Munich from the first half of the 19th century. Our St. Norbert tastes dryer and bitterer than the Munich lager. Whole malt well hopped beer, showing the Munich, caramelized and roasted malt in its taste.

Ungstrup (29694) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 31, 2008
Bottled. A dark brown beer with a huge brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of caramel and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of malty and straw as well as lighter notes of caramel, the caramel though gains in strength towards the finish, leading to a dry bitter finish. Thanks to my friend Kristian for bringing this home for Christmas.
