Danish: En skærsommermorgen skyllede fire søløver i land på Bornholm fra fire forskellige lande: Gunnhild fra Norge, Christian fra Sydafrika, Juha fra Finland og Evan fra USA. Missionen var at brygge en øl sammen med den allermest åndssløve søløve, nemlig brygmester Jan Paul fra Svaneke Bryghus. Christian havde en sæk Rooibos thé med fra Sydafrika og den blev flittigt brugt til krydring af hvad der ellers kommer meget nær en Red Ale. Stik imod vanen blev der næsten ikke brugt humle, men derimod revede lime skaller. Og det gav pote: Resultatet er en sart rød, parfumeret og filigran øl. Duften domineres af kamille, roser og en anelse citrus medens smagen præges af karamel nuancer, maltsødme og en smule humlebitterhed. Det var et non-profit-projekt for de involverede søløver – så man får ikke en doktor grad i økonomi fra Handelshøjskolen for det. Men en kandidat grad i hygge skal det nok kunne række til – derfor: Cand. Hyg. Overgæret.
