Hanne På Høyden har byttet ut varene fra det tidligere bakeriet med kortreist mat, men vil gjerne beholde tradisjonen med en liten "brun" en etter arbeidstid. Dette er en lett brown ale som egner seg godt til slik. Brygget av kokkene på Høyden sammen med Kristiania Haandbryggerlaug.

Beer5000 (6328) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 2, 2012
330 ml bottle, courtesy of ClubGonzo. Hazy brown body with a big, tan head. Aroma is malt, chocolate and spicy. Flavor is malty with chocolate, mild bitterness and a hint of acidity and a mild bitter aftertaste. It’s a mild and malty brown ale with a hint of infection appearing as acidity, but still very drinkable. Promising.

yngwie (16889) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 23, 2011
Bottle, courtesy of Hanne and clubgonzo. A slow gusher, producing a fingerthick light beige head. Brown, unclear body. The aroma has a distinct touch of milky sourness, is quite roasted and coffeeish and lighlty chocolatey. Mostly pleasant, but a bit one dimensional maybe. Pleasant carbonation, quite dry. Roasted flavor, with the milky sourness subdued. Chocolate and a good dash of coffee. Some hints of fruityness and bitterness. Roasted finish with a sour touch. A pity it’s infected, it seems to have been nice when fresh. 111123

Palme (4541) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 10, 2011
0.33l bottle courtesy of and served @ and by Hanne På Høyden, Bergen. Pours a dark hazy brown body with lots of small sediments and a nice dense, beige and lasting head. Aroma is nicely dominated by chocolate and caramel malts with some hopy notes and a mild earthy-twist. It has a oily to watery mouthfeeling, average carbonation and medium-bodied. Flavors starts off with a light sour note, continues with some mild caramel, dark malts and the whole thing ends with a good hopy bitter aftertaste. A nice mild brown ale from Hanne.

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2011 Re-rated after new tasting during beer dinner @ Hanne På Høyden, 09.06.2011. The brown ale has now been allowed to fully mature (I was a bit eager to taste it first time around) which has given a higher level of caramel-ish brown ale characteristic to the taste, a better-looking darker hued body and a more assertive and fuller palate. A rather nice brown ale, all in all. Bottle, courtesy of chief and owner of Hanne På Høyden, Hanne. :-) Dark hazy nougat/wooden brown body, small white retention which disappears quickly. Nose is caramel malts, with hints nuts and the lighter versions of Norwegian "brown cheese" ("brunost"). In the mouth, a fairly low level of carbonation brings out mellow roasty caramel tones. Quite smooth, and very easily drinkable; this would be good as a "session brown ale". Well balanced but perhaps a bit too mild. Still: according to Hanne this will serve as the basic recipe and starting point for making other, more experimental beers using local ingredients and herbs. Will surely be looking forward to that, as this is a good start. :-)
