Raasted Brown Ale

Brewed by Randers Bryghus
Randers, Denmark
5.5% Brown Ale | 110 Ratings |
Editor’s note: Formerly known as "Raasted Brown Ale+" at a time when Raasted also made a weaker 3.8% version. The latter has since been discontinued. So the only brown ale now made by Raasted is now this 5.5% version.

Danish: Er brygget efter engelsk forbillede med brug af de traditionelle engelske humletyper East Kent Goldings og Fuggles. Denne Brown Ale er stærkere og mere fyldig end normalt. Der er brugt en lille mængde humle, og maltsmagen får virkelig lov til at træde i karakter, hvilket gør øllet utrolig velegnet til brug i mad og især marinering af kød, til brug under stegningen og i sovsen.

English: This is brewed from an English inspiration using the traditional English hops, East Kent Goldings and Fuggles. This brown ale is stronger and has a more full body than normal. A small amount of hops was used and the malt flavor is allowed to be dominant, which makes this beer incredible suitable for use in food and especially for marinating meat, for use during cooking and in the sauce.
