COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Maelstrøm is gebrouwen ter gelegenheid van het 10 jarige bestaan van de SNAB. Terugkijkend in de geschiedenis van het brouwen komen we het verschijnsel van moeder-dochter bier regelmatig tegen. Deze oude brouwmethode, waarbij men gebruik maakte van één zelfde storting om meerdere bieren te maken, is de basis voor onze Maelstrøm (9,8 %) en Snab Pale Ale (6,3 %). Door de zware storting na te spoelen verkrijg je een steeds minder zwaar bier. Om puur praktische redenen worden beide bieren nu apart gebrouwen. In ons streven om vernieuwend te zijn op de Nederlandse biermarkt zijn we hierin ook met de Maelstrøm weer geslaagd. Speciaal voor de liefhebbers van droge, hopbittere bieren is deze American Barley Wine ontwikkeld. Door gebruik te maken van Cascade en Amarillo hop en het toepassen van "dry-hopping" heeft dit bier een zeer uitgesproken karakter gekregen. Water, Pale Ale-, Kristal en Münchener mout, Cascade en Amarillo hop en gist.

Ungstrup (38139) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2005
A hazy orange beer with a nice orange head. The aroma is sweet hoppy with fruity notes of oranges. The flavor is sweet hoppy with a good warming fealing from the alcohol, and then a dry hoppy end. Almost American in the interpretation - nice.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2008 Bottled. Deep amber colour, small beigeish brown head. Aroma is earth, herbs, some mild fruits, a bit alcohol and quite wooden. Also some burnt wooden notes are there. Flavour is really nutty along with some herbs, spices and fruits. Alcohol burning quite much.

omhper (25349) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 21, 2002
Bottled. Chesntut brown. Big huge grapefruity cascade hop aroma. Rather sweet and really full bodied, but dominated by intense hoppiness. A very american style barley wine with a lingering hop bitter finish.

cgarvieuk (25222) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 2, 2007
Bottle at Toms Ultimate Glasgow Tasting ... Copper with that typical american hop nose ... Very tart hop ... lots of fruity hop and pine ... but not working for me.
