COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Het Anker Brewery still brews "The Emperor’s Beer" which is top-fermented and bottle conditioned following traditional methods. Its high gravity (O.G. 1080-85) combines the warmth of wine and the freshness of beer. Gouden Carolus is one of the strongest and most exciting beers in the world. After lengthy maturing and conditioning, it is bottled unfiltered, giving a beer which is rich in vitamins and 100% natural. Gouden Carolus has unlimited storage (it even improves with age) and will charm you with its warm coppery colour and rich bouquet.

nybol (2201) - DENMARK - JUL 15, 2017
En rødbrun belgisk ale, med kraftig krop og en rigtig god humlesmag af den ekstra cascadehumle der er lagt i. Opskriften stammer fra 1369 hvor den blev, ifølge pålidelig kilde, serveret til krjer Karls d. 5. jagtselskaber.
