Danish: Brown ale er den mørkere version af en forårsøl. Den er brygget på alle 5 mulige bygmalte til rådighed i bryggeriet og humlet kraftigt op. Således et forsøg på at komme i nærheden af "Humlet belgier" igen, men nok en anelse mørkere.

English: Brown Ale is a darker version of a spring beer. It is brewed with all our 5 available barley malts and strongly hopped. It is an attempt to get near "Humlet belgier" again, but probably slightly darker.

yngwie (16989) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 16, 2007
Bottle. (#15) Reddish brown pour, leaving a nice, beige head. Fruity and sweet, roasted aroma with caramel and some chocolate notes. Nice fruity and sweet flavor, quite hoppy, finishing with sweetness and a nice spicyness. Full to medium body. A lovely brown ale. I’m growing more and more fond of this brewery, it’s a pity they don’t have a wider distribution. (071013)

thewolf (12486) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2007
Bottle. [thank you, Myrup!]
Pours a clear dark brown - looks red up against the light. Head is initially quite fizzy, but settles as a creamy beige whipped cream topping. Aroma is flowery hoppy with a nuts-like background. A little spritzy. Powerful flavour. Roasted, chocolate, nuts. A little burned at the far end and a touch of yeasty off flavours. Very competent brew, I must say.
