COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brown Ale is the Classic English pub ale. A top-fermented beer with a taste of chocolate malt and caramel malt. And why the crazy name? Hornbeer is a farmhouse brewery located in the beautiful Hornsherred, and at a short distance from the brewery, are the finest organic red cows grassing. We wanted to spare you the trouble of pronouncing the Danish name "Den Røde Ko", but maybe a few Red Cows could help with that?

DraftDodger (1709) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 5, 2017
Copenhagen 5/9 2017. 50 cl bottle from Meny. Cow blinking jovially at me on the label. Pours hazy deep brown with off-white head. Settles as thin patchy rim of foam along the side of the glass. No lacing. Aroma is sweetish with a light bitter streak. Brown sugar, caramel and light odor of roasted malts. Light hoppy bitterness in the background. Light carbonation and medium thick palate. Flavor is fairly sweet with only light bitterness. Aftertaste has slightly stronger bitterness nicely balanced by sweetness. Solid but quite sweet brown ale.

Thank you! Sampled draft @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Dark ruby amber, small tanned head. Nose is weird, hugely sweet cloying cough syrup, herbal candy, very sweet, thick herbal,... Taste falls flat, plastic, empty upfront, herbal, plastic cough syrup, bark,... First overly cloying cough syrup that is empty in taste,... Empty plastic herbal berry cough syrup brew,... Weird, not a big success,...

Pinball (12332) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2017
cloudy dark brown fluffy light brown head. malty to roasted malty aroma with dark toffee notes too. flavor is dark toffee, malts, chocolate, mineral waterish dry scandinavian bitterness ( only i understand what i mean i think ) , end quite rounded, with lots of dark toffee bitterness. Not my personal favorite style of beer, but pretty good for its kind, balanced.
