Danish: I starten af 1900-tallet udvandrede Dragr-drengen Didrik Crappe til Trankebar for at etablere koloniens frste sildemelsfabrik. Gennem hele sin opvkst i Dragr var Didrik tre gange ugentligt blevet fodret med sin mors Boller i Karry, der var krydret s gevaldigt, at den stakkels dreng ganske fik delagt sin fordjelse. Nogle historikere mener, at sildemelet blot var et pskud for at Didrik kunne flygte fra sin mors bollegryder. Iflge myten stod Didrik naglet til forstavnen, p den damper, der tog ham bort fra sit ellers elskede Dragr, og her med en kk resundsbrise i sit hr skulle han have rbt ordene: Aldrig mere skal en karrybolle passere dette svlg. Hjulpet af det gode lokale Trankebarske Lagerl fik den unge mand atter styr p sin fordjelse. Faktisk endte han med selv at etablere et bryggeri, hvis l var s smagfuldt, at rygtet om det nede helt tilbage til Danmark. Mske var sildemelet den unikke, hemmelige ingrediens, som alle talte om. Nuvel, snart sejlede dampere i rutefart fra Trankebar til Dragr udelukkende ladet med Didriks gode l. Sledes var India Pale Lager fdt.

English: Didrik Crappe was a Copenhagen lad who set sail to Tranquebar in the early 19th Century to establish a herring meal factory in this exotic Danish colony. He suffered terribly from indigestion because of his mothers home cooking, esp. her extremely spicy chicken curries that he was forced to eat several times a week. Some historians maintain that the whole business of founding a herring meal factory was just an excuse to get away from his mothers pots and pans. There is a legend saying that Didrik posted himself in the bow of the clipper carrying him away from his beloved hometown, and exclaimed "No more rice and curry for this fair Dane!" But the story has a happy end. Thanks to the fine lager brewed locally in Tranquebar, Didriks indigestion was cured, and in fact he soon established his own brewery out there, creating a beer so tasty that rumors of it flew all the way back to Denmark. Perhaps the herring meal was the secret ingredient that distinguished Didriks brew from all others. Anyhow, soon clippers carrying nothing but barrels of his product were leaving Tranquebar for Copenhagen every day of the week. Thus the Indian Pale Lager was born.

A crisp and dry Pale Lager with a base of only pilsener malts. Hopped and dry-hopped with Amarillo, Cascade and Citra. No rice or curry was added.

Hazy yellow colour with fluffy head. Aroma and flavour have a delicate balance of pale malts and light floral, fruity hop. A gold standard for Lager.

tricksta_p (4305) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 27, 2017
Bottle from Speciaalbierpakket. Aroma is grainy malt, fruity notes, hay, grass, citrussy hops, soft tropical fruits with some floral notes. Flavour is only lightly sweet with a nice medium bitter and fairly dry finish. Body is medium. Pretty great, an exemplary Lager, I could drink a whole keg of this stuff.

ALIBALI (1780) - Kiel, GERMANY - JAN 20, 2017
Hot Lager Stuff. Zutiefst India und massiv lecker. Krftigst angefunkte Citrushopfaromen bestuben die Sensoren. Absolutly fresh, aber auch ein wenig LAGERseicht. Die Hopfen kommen, besonders in der Nase, ganz gut zur Geltung. Tief im Rachen spre ich beim spten Nachttrunk eine grnlich pfeffrige Schrfe. Dieses mag an der wunderbar abgefahrenen Geschichte zum Bier liegen. Getreidig weizig ist es auch irgendwie, im Mund...Ratty 😀. 0,5/Ca. 5. AMAGER Shop in Kastrup,DK.
