Hornbeer Gladiator

Formerly brewed at Hornbeer
Kirke Hyllinge, Denmark
6.4% India Pale Ale (IPA) | 73 Ratings |
Danish: I det gamle Rom udkæmpede Gladiatorerne drabelige kampe på liv og død. I vores tid udkæmpes de drabelige kampe heldigvis næsten kun i sport. I øllets verden dyster bryggerne om at lave den bedste øl. Denne øl er brygget i samme ånd, som da Gladiatorerne kæmpede, som når det danske fodboldlandshold ydmyger USA i kvartfinalen i Sydafrika i juni 2010 - og som en venskabelig, drabelig dyst mellem Midtfyns Bryghus og Hornbeer om at lave den bedste øl!
Betingelserne er lige: vi bruger samme opskrift, men vi har forskellige bryganlæg og brygger. Øllet er af den humlede slags. Vi har eksperimenteret med forskellige humlesorter, og er endt op med 5 forskellige amerikanske (desværre) sorter. Men malten er fra kontinentet og vandet er dansk!
