COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Special Ale is, in reality, a reconstructed exhumation of the very first ale that we ever brewed way, way back, in 1993. Brewed with a big head, a muscular malty thorax, a silky texture & all strung together with a hoppy sweet nerve sack... yum.

yngwie (17078) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 29, 2007
Bottle. Bomber. Clear, copper-colored beer with a beige head. Hoppy flavor with beef-stock, malt, some sweetness and caramel. There’s hops, alcohol, malt, sweetness and beefstock in the flavor. Quite bitter in the mouth, with malt and hops to finish it off. A nice beer, but there’s too much hops to balance it. (070413)

Dedollewaitor (16178) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2008
35,5cl. bottle. Amber/copper with a creamy white head. Nicely hopped aroma - grapefruity/piney & a slight sweet malty note. Well balanced, soft & full bodied. Power fruity hoppy - but still pleasant in a nice way. Lasting bitter end. Good drinkability!
