Danish: Danmarks vel eneste unikke bidrag til den internationale korstogsbevægelse var en øl – en korstogsøl. Når man blev optaget i korstogsordenen Johanniterne (Malteserridderne) i Danmark drak man den traditionelle ”Kors øøll”. Nu har Nyborg Slot sammen med Ørbæk Bryggeri genskabt øllen, som den kunne have været.
Det er en mørk, kraftig øl (alk. 7,5%) med strejf af citronmelisse, safran og rørsukker. Ingredienser som alle har forbindelse til Johanniternes jorde og huse i Europa og Det Hellige Land. På trods af styrken er den overraskende blød og rund og vil gå godt til aftensmaden i stedet for vin.
