COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Viborg Brown Ale is an easily accessible beer style – inspired by Newcastle brown Ale.. Because of the 6,3% alcohol it has a lot more flavor than NBA, but yet most will not find it too dominating. It’s clearly our most popular and versatile beer. Brown Ale is nice with most kinds of food. It’s hand brewed by the use of a gas kettle and open fire, and provides the pronounced caramel flavor. Top fermented and cellared in 3 weeks.

Ungstrup (29847) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 7, 2006
A deep red beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet with a light touch of spices - nothing special. The flavor is sweet with a light note of burnt plastic, being what I remark mostly. The end is dry and roasted.
