En tur i Toft Vin Islands Brygge velsignede os med dette bryg. Egentlig var julebryggene ikke kommet på hylderne endnu, men Herslev Stjerne Bryg blev anbefalet og fundet frem fra baglokalet. Vi taler om en helt mudret øl som nærmest er gråbrun, og skummet lå også ganske fint. Duften er krydret og der er både bær og gær at finde. Smagen er mere kompleks end noget hidtil denne aften; bl.a. findes koriander, citrus, anis, og en del sødme fra malt og gær; alkoholen tydes kun svagt i baggrunden. Gennemsnitlig tyngde og tykkelse, men bestemt en fin julebryg.

500 ml bottle 2010, 8% ABV. Clear, dark amber body with a big, foamy off-white head that fades. Aroma is malty with spices, mainly anis and liquorices. Flavor is sweet and soft malty, spicy, a bit fruity, moderate bitter and with a sweet malty aftertaste. Quite OK, maybe just a bit on the sweeter side with some lack of bitterness.
