Danish: Skands Esrum Kloster er Bryggeriet Skands fortolkning af en klosteryg. Der er brugt krydderurter fra klostrets egen urtehave, bl.a. enebær, citronmelisse, lavendel, anis og rosmarin, alle urter som munkene brugte som smagsforstærkere. Esrum Kloster er en overgæret og har en dejlig mørk kastanjebrun farve, en aromatisk duft og smagen afrundes med en snert af anis.
Esrum Kloster er blankfiltreret.
Esrum Kloster egner sig fortrinligt til kraftige kødretter og vinter mad, men kan også nydes alene i en stille stund.

English: Skands Esrum is Skands Brewery interpretation of a klosteryg. I have used herbs from the monastery’s own herb garden, including juniper, lemon balm, lavender, anise and rosemary, all herbs which the monks used as flavor enhancers. Esrum is a top-fermented and has a lovely dark chestnut brown color, an aromatic fragrance and flavor rounded off with a hint of anise. Esrum is blank filtered. Esrum perfectly suited for heavy meat dishes and winter food, but can also be enjoyed alone in a quiet moment.
