Danish: En stærk gylden ale, forførende og en lille smule lumsk. Vi har brygget efter belgisk tradition og tilsat moderne virkemidler. Aromaen er vinøs og frugtrig, let syrlig med indslag af citrus og melon. Smagen er kompleks, intens, tør og behagelig. Sekretæren anbefaler sig som en lækker tørstslukker, men forsigtighed tilrådes ved indtagelse af større mængder: Hun er stærkere end hun ser ud til. Under udviklingen tænkte bryggeren meget på at nå frem til en øl, der kunne være en god ledsager til fisk. Vi synes at det er lykkedes ganske godt, men vil påstå den kan følges med næsten alt.

English: A strong golden ale, seductive and a little bit treacherous. We have brewed by Belgian tradition and added modern instruments. The aroma is vinous and fruity, slightly tart with a touch of citrus and melon. The taste is complex, intense, dry and comfortable. Sekretæren (The Secretary) recommends itself as a delicious thirst quencher, but caution is advised when taking larger quantities: She is stronger than she looks. During recipe development, the brewer reached for a beer that could be a good companion to sea food. We seem to have succeeded quite well, but would claim that it can accompany almost anything.

50 cl bottle, courtesy of Maersk. Muddy yellowish color with okay head. Very similar in flavor to a red ale, which means totally dry, bitter and medical. The type of beer you love or hate.
