Danish: Klassisk engelsk pale ale som er en gylden, kobberfarvet øl med smag og aroma fra traditionelle engelske humlesorter som Fuggles og East Kent Goldings. Karakteristiske kendetegn er en veldefineret humlesmag, med en let karamelliseret malt baggrund, lidt mere maltsødme end der typisk findes i en amerikansk pale ale. Fantastisk at nyde til al slags kød, som oksekød, lam eller burgere. I England er ”pale ale” mere kendt som Bitter eller Mild. Denne pale ale er tørhumlet med Fuggles som giver en mild græs og krydret aroma, serveres køligt ved en 5-7 grader celsius. Humlens aroma kommer mere frem efterhånden som glasset bliver varmet op og fyldes med dufte fra Fuggles humlen. Hermod er søn af Odin og Frigg og dermed Balders broder. Han er kun omtalt i fortællingen om Balders død. Han er gudernes sendebud og påtager sig opgaven og rider til Hel for at overtale dødsgudinden til at lade Balder vende tilbage til guderne.
