COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Jacobsen Velvet Ale er en klar gylden l med et prgtigt perlende skum. Duften brer noter af citrusagtig syrlighed, passionsfrugt og en tydelig vins karakter. Smagen er indledningsvis let sdlig med en anelse syre, men nsten uden bitterhed. Fylden er rund, mild og bld. Eftersmagen er kort og frisk. Ambitionen i udviklingen af Velvet Ale har vret at skabe en l, der aromatisk minder om hvidvin og champagne, men som i forhold til smag og forfriskende karakter str rodfstet i llets verden. I dette arbejde har det ogs vret en mlstning, at llet skulle indeholde et minimum af humle, sledes at det ikke har nogen bitterhed.
I mlstningen om at undg bitterhed var den oprindelig plan helt at udelade humle i brygningen. Men efter en rkke testsmagninger blev det vurderet, at resultatet faktisk blev mere fuldkomment, nr vi tilsatte en lille smule humle i slutningen af urtkogningen. Valget faldt p den relativt nye australske universalhumlesort Galaxy, der blev fremavlet i Rostrevor Breeding Garden i delstaten Victoria i 1994. Galaxy har en meget unik aromaprofil, der vkker mindelser om citrusfrugter og specifikt passionsfrugt.

NosirIwont (2485) - Frederikssund, - SEP 25, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear, very pale yellow (with a faint greenish glow). Big, fluffy white head with a bit of lacing. Tart, hoppy hay aroma with faint notes of yeast and remote notes of cooked vegetables. Sweet as it warms. A bit vineuse. Sweet and a bit oily flavour, fruity and with notes of hay. Sweet, dry and tart finish. Very little carbonation - probably why its called velvet, but its not working for me. Overall boring and too sweet in a corn kind of way; I can see where it wants to go, but its not working. 25.09.11.

Pours crystal clear golden with high but quickly disappearing head. High carbonation and low-bodied. Aroma of champagne/wine and sweet taste with some sourness of champagne. Drinkable but rather not on a regular basis.

humlelala (1374) - DENMARK - OCT 25, 2015
(from 75 cl bottle @ The Carlsberg Museum; BBD: 02.04.2016) Poured at fridge temperature into a Jacobsen snifter reveals a clear pale golden body with one finger, white head. Decent retention and lace. Aroma is somewhat vinous with slightly tart notes with hints of gooseberries and elderflowers. Oily texture, soft carbonation, light body and a short finish. Flavour follows the nose with no bitterness, a bit of wheat tartness and a little sweetness.

TorbenJensen (1499) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 6, 2015
It tastes like a semi-dry white wine, a bit on the sweet side, and has no hop bitterness. Youre really ought to be disappointed if you expect some beer taste, but its fresh and vinous character, I think anyway speaks for its justification in the world of beer. It is certainly a great beer from Jacobsen and is a welcome weapon for us beer lovers who can now win another battle against wine.
