I Stjørdal har vi Norges eldste gjenlevende ølbryggetradisjon. Ølet brygges på samme måte i dag som det har vært gjort de siste 1000 år, med malt som er tørket over ild av veden fra treet or - som på trøndersk kaller "ørder". I dag brygges ølet til jul og andre høytider. Ørdeølet er vår honnør til denne tradisjonen, og våre forfedres råvareforedling - hvor vi har valgt å bruke den fantastiske råvaren som stjørdalsmaltet er som et krydder, men samtidig gi det en god plass i smaksbildet. Bør drikkes med respekt - kanskje helst stående. Ingredienser: Jonsvann, maltet korn, humle og gjær

Fra flaske på Cardinal M2 juni-15: slow gusher, brunsvart med beige skum. Aroma: røykmalt og surved. Smak: surt bacon. Bruser kraftig i munnen - er denne infisert? Over bordkanten med den.

Shared bottle @ Cardinal, Stavanger. Pours brown with huge off-white head. Aroma of smoked malt. Some sweetness and sourness, might be infected. Beer was overcarbonated.

Sigmund (6759) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 27, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2015 330 ml bottle, batch 104, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 5.5%. Dark brown colour, moderate beige head. Fairly strong aroma of alder wood smoked stjørdalsmalt, smoked meat and smoked fish. Medium dry flavour, strong notes of stjørdalsmalt, despite this smoked malt allegedly being only a minor part of the grist. Not my cup of tea.

mcberko (14686) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 21, 2015
330mL bottle at Cafe Ni Muser, pours a deep dark brown brown with an amber tinge and a tiny head. Nose brings out lightly smoked ash and light roast. Flavour is ashy and smoky, with lightly roasted caramel malt. Well-constructed and balanced but nothing overly impressive. Decent.

Beer5000 (5955) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 27, 2015
330 ml bottle. Dark brown body with a small, dense, lacing brown head. Strong and promising aroma smoked malt, smoked meat and peat. Flavor is sweet, acidic, burnt malt, smoke, liquorice and quite sour. I don’t’ find the flavor balanced at all, for me it’s just a sweet and acidic mess with bonfire and peat. Medium body and strong in aftertaste. Not my kind of beer.

bergstaden (2458) - Røros, NORWAY - JUL 12, 2014
Olmost black with a small brown head - Heavy smokey aroma - Heavy smoked malt body with some acidity in the back - Long lasting smoke finish - Not my kind of beer this

ej (1254) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - JUN 23, 2014
Pours close to black with little to no head. Smoke and peat on the nose, with dried ham, liquorice and tar. Taste is slightly sour with moderate smoke and liquorice. Body is medium and co2 levels are soft.

visionthing (4831) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 10, 2014
33cl bottle from Vinmonopolet. Pours dark brown with a beige head. Smoky aroma with wooden notes, malt, sour berries, peat and hints of tar and grapefruits. Smoky, quite sour and wooden with earthy and vinous notes. Certainly a lot going on here, but not quite my thing. The smokiness is nice, but doesn’t go so well with the more sour and acidic notes for me. Interesting enough!

MartinT (9411) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 9, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Wooden smoke gets overtaken by acidic grapefruit, two powerfully disharmonious components which sadly fight from aroma to finish.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the dark brown.
-Malt character and depth is not in display at all here.
-The acrid fruitiness gets quickly unnerving.
-Drinkability is obviously very poor.
-This is far cry from the other Stjørdalsøl or Maltøl I’ve tried (Granas, Storli, Klostergarden).
-I had high hopes for this one, but alas, this batch is clearly infected.
