Editor’s note: First batches of this beer were brewed at Bryggen, Thisted.

Danish: En rødgylden ale tilsat blomsterhonning og Amarillo-humle. På trods af den høje alkoholprocent er det en rund og mild øl, med en sødlig eftersmag fra honningen. For at balancere sødmen med en friskhed, er der brugt lyse malte og lidt farvemalt. Der er en afdæmpet bitterhed fra First Gold humle, og smagen krydres med appelsinnoter fra Amarillohumlen. Thetis egner sig godt til at nyde alene eller sammen med desserter og kager.

English: A reddish golden ale with added honey and Amarillo hops. It is a round and mild beer, in spite of the rather high alcohol percentage, with a sweet palate from the honey. To balance out the sweetness with a freshness, light malts and a little bit of colour malts was used. There is a subtle bitterness from the First Gold hops and the flavor is spices with orange notes from the Amarillo hops. Thetis is well suited to be enjoyed on its own or with deserts and cakes.
